Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

Yes, it's definitely these "orientation 1" images that are being scrambled - they are displayed correctly the first time (on first display upon conversion), but obviously what is being written to the SD card is scrambled and when it's read back (upon second viewing) it then appears as a scrambled i...

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

Further to my last post, I found a little prog called WinSCP which is a bit more my thing. Got me access to the log file anyway. It's too big to post here but I've placed it here if it helps ... https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2903701/logfiles Just to re-state, the logfile relates to the corruption of ban...

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

I hope not! I don't really like openELEC or raspbmc (no offense). I'd love a guide with instructions for the linux newbie to be able to compile off the github so we don't have to rely on others, but that's just me ;-) You have the howto for debian in the first post of this thread. Compiling complex...

Still, this is an xbmc problem more than an R-pi one I believe.
