Anyone got a link?
Most people will be building from the git source themselves I guess, although looking at the commits after 11286 I'm not sure how much is pi specific.

Re: OpenELEC Build includes some WIFI and capture card drive

I'll skip over the drivers part, but, getting a console in openelec requires 2 things. First: Enable ssh in the cmdline.txt by adding the command ssh to the end (you probably have that already?) Second: Connect over ssh, using a program of your choice, in Windows I'd suggest PuTTY, on a unix system ...

Re: VNC Gaming Client

You would definitely struggle with latency and lack of screen updates using VNC. I think wireless HDMI would be a better option. Or, purchase a long HDMI cable and put it behind some trunking or on the skirting boards.

Re: Ustream plugin for OpenElec, Raspbmc or XBMC

a little bit of googling suggests there isn't a dedicated Ustream addon for XBMC, but I couldn't say if any other addons have ustream listed.

Any addon for XBMC should work with the versions on the RPi, but that isn't a definite.

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

In theory CEC is supported in the hardware. As yet though no drivers to interact with it are present.

libCEC is the place to look for it being worked on though so there is a chance.

Re: Only 122Mb ram?

The 256MB ram is shared between the CPU and GPU. You can select how you split this using the different start.elf files.

You can have :
128/128
192/64
224/32
CPU/GPU

These are the options as it stands. Hopefully that helps.

I"m pretty sure FTP has always been plain text. Hence considered not a good secure transfer method. SFTP and others address that I thought maybe.

Shame smb seems to be failing still. Just means I will buy a nas sooner than planned.

Not yet tried 10918, however, on 10902 my Speedlink SL-6399 IR remote works out of the box (but it works with normal XBMC so I sort of expected it would).

I'm going to update over the weekend and see what stage it is behaving like for myself.

So tonight"s testing has shown 10902 to be very stable playing files locally or from a nfs share. Will lockup every time I try a smb share from win 7 though.

Stable running that aside though. Can"t test again till Monday but I will help more then.

I hadn't used the update process, I reimaged a card with the 10902 build. I didn't know whether the include 3rdparty bits were the latest or if I should have used the "3rdparty" bits direct from RPi github (bootloader stuff, not kernel or system).

Thanks, that was all I wanted to check. So the 10902 release seemed to be running fine in a simple mode earlier. I'll have more time to test tonight, with a faster SD card as well.
