Re: External HDD connection problem

It's probably not only unmounting all the time, but it's actually disconnected / connected from the USB port. You can check that in the system log (using dmesg).

Did you plug the HD directly in the Pi? If yes than try using a powered hub.

Re: system can not stop

suspend and standby don't have any meaning on a Pi, so I'm not surprised that they take you straight back to the menu (BTW: RaspBMC does not offer these options, only shutdown and reboot).
by cons "stop system" plant still
sorry, but I have no idea what you mean by this :?

Re: system can not stop

Looks like an XBMC problem to me. Which version of XBMC are these distros using? IIRC the current version is 12 RC2.

Your keyboard is in the 'problems list' (http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeriphera ... _Keyboards). It looks as if your only option is to get a different one...

Re: Adobe flash player

I'm using the iPlayer plugin on my raspbmc pi and it works fine. I assume you can use it in any XBMC distro.

You can only use the live stream option (that includes seven day catch up); It does not give you the option to download and save programmes.

Re: Pi MAC Address

Your question seems to imply that you think the Pi has built-in WiFi? This is not the case. You have built-in wired Ethernet (the eth0 connection), but WiFi requires a USB WiFi dongle. The OP mentions the WiPi so I assume he's using Farnells WiFi dongle (http://uk.farnell.com/element14/wipi/dongle-...

A trick I used in my admin days was to let users type in the password first (when it asks you for the user name). That way you can check that the keyboard setup is correct.

Re: Login Error

The password is case sensitive so make sure you type it in *exactly* as you did when you changed it.

Just in case the password did not get changed try 'raspberry' (without the quotes).

Re: nbtscan cannot see Pi

From your first post I gather your biggest worry is changing IP addresses. I solved this by letting the DHCP server in my router issue fixed addresses to my PIs. You basically link the MAC address to a fixed IP address. BTW: nbtscan apparently scans for NETBIOS names / services. AFAIK you *do* need ...

Re: Memory shortage

First thing I would check is if you're using the same memory split on both systems.
Settings are in /boot/config.txt so I would check if these file are the same.

Re: connecting raspberry with pc

You can always give a regular ethernet cable a try if you are going directly from pc to RPi as most ethernet is auto sensing and will work fine with a regular straight through ethernet cable. The Pi's ethernet port *is* auto-sensing, so you can indeed use a regular (straight) ethernet cable. Gr. Di...
