Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

I've been keeping up (as much as possible) with distributions like XBian and Raspbmc, whilst all the time wanting to actually give it a go myself. I've noticed a few people saying that the following repo should be used: https://github.com/huceke/xbmc/tree/raspberrypi instead of the xbmc-rbp one, as ...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

I don't want to move files from the command prompt. Filezilla is far easier to use to move files. It worked without me doing anything when I had openelec but it does not work in Xbian. Sorry, I don't mean from the command prompt, I use WinSCP and it has FTP, SFTP and SCP as options. SCP works to al...

Re: XBMC for Raspbian

I like the idea of this :) As long as it's easily updatable, for example if you add in airplay support, people can just apt-get update / apt-get upgrade to get the latest. I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be nice to make it modular, like php in debian for example, so people can pick an...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

That explains it then!

I just checked the other 1080p I was having issues with, and it has 9 ref frames! I've got a few more which have 4 so I'll check those tonight.

Thanks for pointing that out :)

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

I updated my xbian last night (from 0.6 -> 0.6.1 -> 0.6.2), and it went really smoothly! I played about some more with video files and as far as I can tell, everything works perfectly. I'm still having a problem with artifacts showing on a 1080p video though, even though there was no stuttering thi...

Re: New to Raspbian and Linux? Start here...

Here are a few simple ones: Become root: sudo -i Edit a file: nano /path/to/filename (then edit as normal, and ctrl+x to exit) Append to a file (if you dont want to edit it): echo "this is a new line" >> /path/to/file See what's running: ps ax or top Moving around the filesystem: cd /path/to/directo...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

Did I miss the memo about this being closed source? How can it be? If there's any debian or xbmc in xbian the source needs to be provided or made available on request. I was under the impression that you only need to do that for commercial releases? If I were to make my own version of raspbian/xbmc...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

One more thing. I appreciate that xbian is closed source, but I've got a question for Koenkk... I'd like to try compiling xbmc myself. Apart from the general tweaks to the os and overclocks etc.. have you made any tweaks to the xbmc source? Basically if I were to clone the xbmc repo and compile it, ...

Another thanks from me :)

Have there been any updates recently? I've been playing around with the version from a few weeks ago and it's great!

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

I just finished doing a comparison of Xbian 0.6 and Raspbmc RC4 (for science!). My setup: Samsung 37" 1080p TV, pi connected through HDMI. 1TB External drive (powered) connected to the pi. I used the same SD card, and the default settings for both, and tried out a few different file types. My basic ...
