Re: Unpowered Raspi breaking HDMI-CEC

removing the D14 solves the problem when it is powered off. now when it is powered on, at least with my setup, it sends the activate signal at boot and then XBMC sends an activate signal again when it starts breaking CEC. using hdmi_ignore_cec_init=1 in config.txt seems to solve this problem and i h...

Re: Another format thread...

i have no idea if the pi can play those WMV9 , just give it a try. For the format i think you are confusing the container MP4 or MKV with the actual video stream format for example H264 High profile 4.1. But then again you have one just try it out.

Re: connect a 1tb hdd on Raspbmc

you will allways need the sd card with the kernel.img and the firmware files. But most distros allow to change the cmdline text file, in there you can specify the partition to the root partition. In your case would be the hdd, you will need to add rootwait as well. This will make the kernel wait til...

Re: Can the RPi utilise a USB Blu-ray player?

you best bet is to use it on windows and use make makemkv to backup the movie. the dts-mta audio tracks could be overkill for the pi, you better convert that to ac3 or to normal dts if you have a AV amplifier

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

Would you just have to manually add a new 'start.elf' thats for the 512mb boards? For the Pi to see all 512MB RAM, yes. However there is now a specific workaround in XBMC to ensure stable GUI operation when only 128MB GPU RAM is available - I'm wondering if the GPU can now access more RAM on 512MB ...

Re: Problems with XBMC

seems to me that your installation is broken, try another distribution here is a guide to openelec
http://youresuchageek.blogspot.fr/2012/ ... ec-on.html or try out xbian.

make sure also that your power supply is more than 0.8 Amps and lower overclock settings if you use them

Re: RaspbianXBMC - git error

not sure why, but you are using the old PI XBMC tree. XBMC master tree has support PI now, so you should clone that one instead, using something like git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git And I'm pretty sure you could find a precompiled image in this forum. check this thread for further info http...

Re: Openelec

Aplay is the player for the ALSA sound card driver, and as far i know alsa is not included in the latest Images, xbmc doesn't use it yet. ALSA is very buggy in the Pi at this stage.

how are you connecting the SD card to your pc ?
For example on my laptop i don't have the drivers installed for the card reader so inserting a sd card doesn't work on linux, i use a sd to usb adapter.

I experienced similar issues with the filesystem, it is probably the mounting options that are not optimal.
