I think it had to do with the network shares on startup, I removed the network cable on boot up and it worked, plugged in and removed the network share I had setup for video.
Are there some issues with network shares?

Boxee crashed while trying to access an SMB share thru an Airport Disk. Everything was working fine until I changed settings for the share from Boxee (i.e. whether or not it should look for Music & Video on that disk) and after I told Boxee to update it's settings it froze.
I unplugged the box and now it seems like my ATV is hosed. I get nothing but endless attempts to reboot after the opening intro movie plays. I got it to go into recovery mode by holding down "-" & Menu on the remote right after I plug the ATV back in. However a factory restore didn't even wipe the issue, and diagnostics turns up nothing. Firmware 1.0 seems to work OK. But updating to 2.2 brings me to the same issue as though I did nothing.

Same Issue -- Everything was cool -- then BAM upon reboot, I can't see the AppleTV Menu. I unplug the Wireless Rounter that the Apple TV is connected to, and BAM I get the Menu.
So I did a Factory Restore
It removed Boxee, etc. Updated to Software Version 2.2 on Apple TV and once I connect to the Network -- I lose the Menu AGAIN! This is after a Factory Restore!
So I am stuck. It appears that Boxee must tweak something in the automounting of SMB shares on boot of the Apple TV, and this section doesn't get reset upon a factory restore??????????
HELP PLEASE? I need a ssh command that will remove the SMB automount?

I was about to post the same thing, I have done a few restores, no boxee, just plain default restore with their recommended update, all works fine until I do the latest update to 2.2 then back to the blinking apple logo and no menu, until the network is pulled then it works, could something be left behind from boxee or is it the 2.2 update?
I have a 2.1 image, does anyone know how to manually update from 2.0 to 2.1?
I think it has to do with the network share, I setup one to try and this issue has been happening since.
Any ideas or fixes?

Until the Boxee team can figure this out. I kept playing with resetting my network, so that I could get into Boxee.... once I got back in, removed the network share, and things now work again
Not touching anything until Boxee does a update :)
Hope this helps?

I had a feeling that might do it. Still waiting for the update to download though before I can test. :(

No sure exactly what I did, except factory restore about 5 times over the last few hours.
The last time I left my default 2.0 firmware version run for about an hour, I updated to 2.2 again and now it works again, no boxee install, but the 2.2 firmware is working.
How strange is that...

Mine stopped working suddenly, then endless rebooted like previously described. I've restored and updated several times, and now all of a sudden is back again.

Confirmed on my end.
Unplug your router, or disconnect your ethernet cable before starting up the AppleTV.
Let it boot, then reconnect the network.

Also. Seems to be that upon further testing that if you designate one SMB share to handle multiple categories it chokes, causing the crash.
The way I have it set up is SMB thru my MacBook -> Volumes -> Airport Disk -> Folder To Watch.
I've set up one folder to be for music, and inside that same folder is another that contains videos that I have setup to be watched for videos. Any other attempt to set up another folder to watch kills Boxee.
This happens both on a wired and wireless connection.
