Thanks and oddly enough I saw another post where you suggested this during my search. Cool device and I think you are exactly correct that it would solve my issue, but I am looking to do it a bit cheaper. Not sure the benefit is worth the $90 at this point. But thanks for the suggestion. I might jump on this one day if I can't fix it via software or some other means like Tape Smile

See here:


I saw that suggestion in the discussion as well. I need to pull my TV off the wall to route some new cables. The HDMI cables I used were just a bit short and I have longer ones to run through the wall. If I get home this evening and find the same results as before, I will certainly give this a try. It fits the cheap and easy solution I am looking for. Would love to fix this via software, but some tape I can deal with.

Thanks again to everyone making suggestions and offering help. I will update later this evening once I find out the state of xbmc tonight.

Mine is so small I can't really navigate through it in the scrunched up state. It is just a few quick button presses to restart xbmc, luckily I don't have to reboot the htpc or anything like that.
