Re: Somebody Please Help Me With Set Up!

Check the pins on the sdcard slot on the Pi, Ive heard others with similar issues because of pins being bent The pins are all straight except from two in the middle that are up a bit more. Cheers And how about the pin at the top that makes a connection with the top of the card, is that making a goo...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

Hi, I have posted before regarding xbian freezing and crashing and I was advised to change the over clock speed, which I've done. It now sits at 700, and it still crashes, although not as frequently. Can anyone advise what the over clock speed should be, and if there is another likely cause of the ...

Re: How do I know when it has properly shutdown?

I use shutdown -h now and eventually it sends no signal to the display and there is only a red light left on the Pi

Most OSs fail to shutdown completely though I noticed and leave it hanging like in your case, then I just unplug it

If the mac can read the file system you should be able to, not sure what it is, maybe EXT4 ?

SSH from Mac to Pi should work

If not, try booting with a live linux cd like ubuntu and edit from there

Hi, I installed xbian tonight, and it's super fast, BUT I do find it crashes a lot. I can be navigating through settings and it crashes or freezes, or adding some video add one, and it freezes.

Can't edit last post, but meant to ask, is it possible to install a Desktop Environment with XBian ?

And be able to choose at the Ctrl + C timeout which one to start ?

If you visit your control panel by clicking your name at the top, then goto Board Preferences > board style, you can change the style of the board to Pro Silver which has the forums linked correctly at the top of each page

I've rebooted and shutdown my Pi running 0.4.1 loads of times and it boots without any errors fine

I wonder how are people shutting down? I use PuTTY from my Windows machine SSH> shutdown -h now

Using the menu in xbmc doesn't shutdown fully at all

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

Could someone check Composite video out for me with 0.3 please

It boots and runs fine, but when I try to play a video / stream a channel, suddenly it seems the resolution becomes too high for the TV (Actually I just had a thought it could be the refresh rate, doh)
