I have just set up my raspberry pi for the first time wish the latest raspbian wheezy and managed to get xbmc installed. I am accessing my rPi with my iPad using issh. When I open xbmc from command line it operates like expected, but if I close the ssh session xbmc immediately quits leaving me with a black tv. I can reconnect to the rPi with issh and it is still operational.

How do I run xbmc without it crashing/quitting when the ssh connection is closed?

Putting XBMC into the background by appending"&" to your command should prevent this, e.g.:

Code: Select all
xbmc-standalone &


If that doesn't work try using "nohup":

Code: Select all
nohup xbmc-standalone
