Re: Overclocking

Sam and Dom, I was finally able to run vcgencmd measure_clock emmc from my RC5 and here are the results: a) with default init_emmc_clock and Super profile: frequency(47)=50000000 b) with default init_dmmc_clock and Ultimate profile: frequency(47)=50000000 c) with init_emmc_clock=70000000 and Super p...

Re: Overclocking

Sam, how can I run vcgencmd measure_clock emmc on Raspbmc RC5?
My system doesn't sem to have bin, include, lib, sbin and src folders inside /opt/vc. Only lib is there.

Re: Overclocking

I won't pretend to be a power user, when in fact I consider myself just a curious user. That being said, would trying different init_emmc_clock settings do any good trying to avoid partitions from being corrupted with the newest overclock settings/kernel?

Re: OpenELEC vs Raspbmc vs Xbian

Morning, I understand the claims etc about the XBian installer using the Raspbmc source code and its a valid point, why should Sam/Raspbmc Dev's code up an installer for it to get stolen. Just to make it clear, it was a "user developed" app and not by a XBian dev, I have PM'ed Sam about this and wi...

Re: OpenELEC vs Raspbmc vs Xbian

Xbian, easily the fastest and most stable, updates very regular, Raspbmc is the worst out of the 3, high CPU usage and HDMI CEC sometimes does not work correctly + fails to play some files that Xbian can play. That may be your experience... I have tried them all, and all three behave nearly identic...

Since there are so many users here favoring XBian, can someone pls post the contents of the default config.txt file of the newer 0.7Beta1 version? I have tried to upgrade one of my SD cards from 0.6.3 to 0.7Beta1, but it keeps rebooting once XBMC home screen opens. I guess it doesn't like my version...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

Mahjongg and Lob0426, thank you both very much for your very detailed discussion on answering my question about F3 polyfuse substitution. I have gone ahead and replaced both F1 and F2 with two small wire bridges. Your guidance and the help of user Dilligaf on the Raspbmc forum also lead me into back...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

On the above post, when I say "then I would start thinking of replacing F3 with a polyfuse that can handle such a larger voltage". Of course, I mean amperage, not voltage.

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

I'm curious about one thing: If F3 was supposed to be 1.1A (but somehow is 700mA currently), AND newer boards have F1 and F3 replaced with something that essentially is a piece of wire with 0 ohm resistance, then I guess that means the PI will only have around 100mA if one would connect two devices ...

Funny thing is that the PleXBMC enhanced skins work on the AppleTV1 and AppleTV2. Don't quite understand why none work on Raspbmc.
