Inno3d Atom 330 ION, Ubuntu 9.04 - black screen then swap to borderless window
#1
XBMC Version : xbmc pre-910 R23626
Linux mini 2.6.28-15-generic #52-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 9 10:49:34 UTC 2009 i686

Debug log : http://pastebin.com/f65fd9497

I followed the guides for installing xbmc on Ubuntu 9.04 on ION systems, and installed xbmc using PPA

Everything appears to work fine, except that after a few mins of watching a video, the screen goes black. Pressing a key brings it back again, but with the player in a borderless window, and key shortcuts, menu's etc do not work unless I use the mouse to click the window several times, then use \ to go back to fullscreen, but then sound is terribly out of sync (advanced), even when using a 10second delay.

I've spent about 6+ hours searching and trying various "fixes", but none seem to work. I didn't have the problem in x64 9.04, but I did have the crash on audio menu bug, and the patch for that doesn't work on the latest builds, as the lines it's looking for don't exist.

Steps taken to resolve :
disabled screensaver and put all power options to never turn off
disable screensaver in xbmc
Sync to Display (think thats the option name - not got it running atm) is selected.
added the lines to xorg.conf
Code:
Section "ServerFlags"
    Option        "blank time" "0"
    Option        "standby time" "0"
    Option        "suspend time" "0"
    Option        "off time" "0"
EndSection
have also tried "BlankTime" "StandbyTime" etc



I also have a wierd issue whereby xbmc startup sounds, and navigation sounds are coming out via HDMI, but video is via optical out (which is where they all should be coming from) - I've removed pureaudio, and added
Code:
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"
}
}
to .asoundrc as provided in numerous threads on getting the sound to work.

The system is connected to a Toshiba 37CV505 LCD TV

Cheers for any advice. I'm fairly new to Ubuntu, and slightly above beginner with linux, but no experience really with gnome etc, as I generally just use ssh until now.

OK, after some searching tonight, I found https://code.launchpad.net/caffeine which *seems* to be working currently.

Also fixed the sound issue thanks to http://www.xbmc.org/forum/showpost.php?p...ostcount=3
