Re: Xbox DVD Playback kit (Xbox DVD remote and dongle)

You can take the xbox reciever apart and attach it to a usb cable (the dongle is usb) . But as i still use the xbox case stripped out i kept the dongle in tact and just soldered the wires from the control port to a usb cable

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

Unbenannt.jpg How should I setup a 32GB SD Card? To write data on the card, I prefer to do that with my Windows PC. I don't know if that works, if not, then over Samba. I would also use gparted (as i dont use windows) then move the swap to the end and resize the ext4 to use all the unallocated space

As there wasn't one single image available (I hate split zip's ;) ), I decided to create one. It's a 4GB sd-card image, packaged into an 784MB 7zip. It's based on Pisces Image, and updated via apt-get yesterday. The rest is 99% clean pisces+xbmc Instructions: Write it to your sdcard ( http://elinux...

Re: mini itx psu

I am not sure about the power, but i have looked at different ways and have decided on a powered hub (7 ports) as this can run external usb hdd (2.5") . But i am unsure a blu-ray would work as linux is unable to play blu-ray discs
