Use USB Image tool to restore it in Windows or dd across each partition. Remember to include your own EFI bootloader from a firmware file and copy it to sdx1

thank you

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=90016 I will see what else I can dig up.

To be honest I am not finding much as of yet, will keep looking though.

WiFi dongles that support ndiswrapper will work fine. Personally though I'd recommend a wired connection. To verify if all your different remotes will work, boot off USB and try it out.

got the image installed no problem and the remote I was using works....now its the sound that is giving me fits. I am running the atv via hdmi any thoughts? gonna take a step back and look at it later on today, any pointers would be appreicated I always seem to have issues with sound when it comes to linux builds.

A very common oversight, but that guide has many 'post install' tweaks which will ensure smoother operation.

Any hints on 720 playback?

Most of my stuff plays OK but its pretty lumpy, fast moving scenes or pan scenes show up pretty clearly how lumpy it all is.

echo atv | sudo -S reboot

Thank you. That did it, at least from a cli. I assume it will work just fine from favorites.

Hmm ... do you have the Crystal HD card? I mainly play 720p stuff and it is almost flawless. There are only three small issues. It takes smb a bit too long to communicate with my server, and the first second or two is jerky. After that, it's perfect. The other issues seems to be a small memory leak, but that may be because of the skin I am using or some addon or booting from an external SSD.

Have you followed the post install guide and set up your custom sound hardware settings?

What is it that you did exactly. Can't help you if we don't know what you've done vs what you haven't.

From the Post Installation Steps located here:
Quote:XBMC: Sound

There are a few things that should be done in XBMC to get your experience as smooth as possible. Firstly, you should configure the audio codecs that your receiver is capable of receiving under Settings > System > Audio Output. This is the main reason why users claim they cannot hear sound properly, if at all. Make sure that XBMC is aware if you have a AC3 (DD) or DTS receiver.
Next, it is important to ensure that XBMC outputs sound to the correct device. This Ubuntu distribution will support TOSLINK and HDMI output. For HDMI output, it is necessary to go to Settings > System > Audio Output and select the use of a Custom Device (obviously enabling Digital Sound Output), the custom device must be entered exactly as: plughw:0,3

Which is why I asked if you followed the post-install steps.


- Hudson_Hawk04 - 2011-05-01 02:13

I don't completely follow what the guide is saying
