superb release - thanks

one question - getting slowdowns every couple of minutes when playing back H264/1080p content

perfect frame rates for a few minutes, then about 40-50 seconds of like "slow-mo" mode, then back up again

have de-interlacing disabled

specs are overclocked 3.2 gig (E7400 CPU) + 9400 integrated Nvidia (set to 512MB RAM)

Update: I followed X3lectic's instructions and got it working (see a few threads later).
My stock HT remote won't work at all.

How do I enable the remote ?

ASROCK Remote controller drivers 1.04
http://europe.asrock.com/downloadsite/drivers/Nettop/Ubuntu/IR(9.10).zip

I upgraded to v11 from v10 (fairly easy upgrade), not sure if I did it right but I just logged out of XBMC, logged on as xbmc/xbmc and ran the commands.

Does v11 have the correct 1.04 drivers ?

All help appreciated.


Should I try THIS METHOD

A big thankyou to the original poster this install work fantistcally apart from couple of tweaks to get 1080p display and also my xbox remote...

Love the added transmission/sabnzbd aswell...
-Transmission makes a good replacement for Azureus (when encryption and blocklists added)
-Been a Sabnzbd lover/user for sometime so added in these apps was pure genius..

Has anyone done a script to control/monitor transmission through a plugin. If not I will get one done as it will compliment this well.

Instructions on installing the drivers for the Asrock ION 330 HT remote.
- These are modified instructions from the original post by X3lectric.

Exit XBMC as seen below.
Image

Code:
at the XBMCLive login:
login as user: xbmc    password: xbmc

Code:
cd /usr/src [color=red]you can probably skip this[/color]
Code:
wget http://bit.ly/6lmfJb [color=red]note this downloads the driver[/color]
Code:
unzip *.zip
before you proceed to next step to ensure what has been extracted and to where, you can type on terminal
Code:
ls -all
This will list all files/folders in the directory. or try
Code:
ls
to get another view of the extracted files.
I have noticed thx to one user with install issues that the extract cmd did not create a folder with files inside so the next command would be superfluous, hence why the ls -all will tell the user what is on that directory
Code:
cd Ubuntu9.10 * [color=red]note - skip this[/color]
Code:
[color=red]sudo[/color] dpkg -i lirc-nct677x-1.0.4-ubuntu9.10.deb
Lirc config will come up select none/none on first run then the process will continue, when the menu comes up again

well it didn't for me, I ran
Code:
[color=red]sudo[/color] dpkg -i lirc-nct677x-1.0.4-ubuntu9.10.deb
again, and it did come up the second time.

select Nuvoton Transceivers/Remotes from the Menu and None for the Transmitter.

This is how it should display on your terminal for correct installation.

Worked for ME

Only thing that isn't working is the
RESUME on suspend !

is there a root account on this LiveCD ?
can i make one ?
I want to be able to SFTP to the box.
I can do it, but I am using the xbmc/xbmc login .. which isn't root.

you'll need to create a password for root
Code:
sudo passwd root

then you can ssh/sftp in with those credentials.

I seem to have solved my issues changing the access rights to the makemkvcon

chmod 777 makemkvcon

Now I get

005011:000000:0000 Operation sucessfully completed
Current action: Buffer state
004500:000000:0000 Streaming server started, web server address is http://192.168.1.76:51000 or http://localhost:51000

The movie also starts within XBMC however no sound - No not really 100% yet but atleast some progress.
