Re: What's better for XBMC, Wheezy/raspbmc/openelec?

Anyone who spends time supporting any of these awesome xbmc versions is a righteous dude in my book. It helps if the support comes from someone who can not only read, but undertand what they read, and not just post the same non advice ad nauseum - but hey, not everyone is cut out to be a Roy or Moss

Re: What's better for XBMC, Wheezy/raspbmc/openelec?

I never said "GUI responsiveness will always be slower" as a standalone statement as raspbmc was the last to use 720p UI, and given that all 3 distros use the same XBMC (close enough), then it's obvious that WHILE YOU BUCKED AGAINST the 720p UI and stayed with 1080p UI, your UI would always be slowe...

Re: Added Hard Drive

Openelec has ssh enabled ... user root, password openelec

but, openelec is not based on raspbian, so your link wont help a "complete noob" ... in openelec, if you can't add it thru the xbmc menus, it's damned hard (relatively) to add

Re: stall on boot with new SD image

Just because an issue has been widely publicized does not mean it is severe, or affecting anyone in a common situation, or affecting more than a handful of people in the entire world.

recent linux kernels have severe issues with ext4 (3.4, 3.5 and 3.6) - so, lets hope raspbian sticks with 3.2 series until that is resolved

Re: RaspBMC Video Scaling

Hi guys Remember that XBian and OpenELEC are capping their resolutions at 720p and upscaling to 1080p to get 60fps. This is why Raspbmc may seem slower in UI. Nonetheless, playback should be pretty even across all platforms why does standard raspbmc config overclock the Pi to 840, with force_turbo=1?

Re: What's better for XBMC, Wheezy/raspbmc/openelec?

Actually, this is very wrong. I do not agree that users should be forced to use a 720p resolution. I have now provided the option to toggle between 720p upscaled to 1080p, or native 1080p 1:1 pixel mapping. Never did I state that video output was capped. Yes you did I find it interesting you claim ...

Re: Read hostname from config file

To change the hostname, you could either SSH into the running RPi and add the /boot/newhost file and reboot... or mount the SDcard in a win box and create the file and put it back into the RPi to boot. the idea of linking to /boot is a good one the method to change this info is overcomplicated....i...

Yes, if you are overvolting you void your warrenty.
