    It's there. You need to look on the main page for "XBMC for iOS Specific Support". Once inside that forum, search on "[AppleTV2] Setting the Time"

    I went thru this yesterday. Couldn't set the time, couldn't log into Netflix and couldn't connect to my Apple account.

    Fixing the date and time fixed it all.

    1. ssh to ATV2
    2. Run the following BSD commands

    To set the time:
    date -s (current time in this 24hr format) HH:MM
    ie. date -s 22:47

    To set the date:
    date -s YYYY-MM-DD
    ie. 2011-02-18

    To verify:
    date

    Hope this helps.

    Also, I had modified my ntp.conf file too. Not sure that this helped at all but if just the above commands fail, locate your ntp.conf file and add some good know ntp servers. THAT info IS on the XBMC site.
