Re: Wobbly screen edge on CRT tv

Seems to be more a setting on the TV you need to change, I forget the exact name but it relates to something like Magnetic Field settings, you can generally change this with the remote, not taking the back off !

Re: BerryBoot Issues

Yeah, not sure what to do next. It eventually times out and freezes, so I am not sure what it's doing. I can run OpenELEC, but when I shut it down, it won't boot again. Maybe try copying the initial BerryBoot files onto the SDCard using a different machine incase the one you're using is corrupting ...

Re: Making a NAS with R.Pi

OK, so I reformatted my 500 Gb NTFS drive to Ext4. Just ran a test copying a file onto it from the NAS (on a gigabit connection, which I've seen go as high as 60 Megabytes/second). I copied an mp4 which was 2230456191 bytes (2127 megabytes) from the NAS to the Ext4 USB HDD and it took 4 mins 15s. S...
