Re: Multiple Interfaces -Eth0 -Wlan0 using XBMC

Metric is only used for routing which you are not doing. I don't run the GUI environment, so I don't know if a network management app is running, but if that is the case then those network management apps tend to favor ethernet over wi-fi, usually they can be configured to allow both interfaces to s...

Not sure why you need a fan anyway? I'm guessing you have it overclocked to the max.

Re: Auto reboot if connection lost

Linux machines rarely need rebooting and it would be odd for the ethernet interface to go down for no reason. Why do you feel the need to reboot, are you having problems with your ethernet interface going down? That would point to a different problem. You should check the /var/log/syslog file next t...

Re: What's better for XBMC, Wheezy/raspbmc/openelec?

Ive tried all three, and although all three play movies pretty much fine, xbian currently has the lead on gui responsiveness. I'm not willing to get into any flame war this is just my personal experience. Only because they overclock the PI, otherwise with the same clock settings I've noticed them a...

PI now part of mainline XBMC

Just saw this on XBMC website posted a few days ago. http://xbmc.org/natethomas/2012/10/10/xbmc-september-cycle/ As many of you are aware, XBMC has already been available on the Raspberry Pi for quite some time. However, until now, that support has not been a part of mainline XBMC. With this change,...

Re: Sound does not work on my pi

I suspect your USB Mic stick is causing the problem. If you remove it, do you get sound out of the analog port? You may need to reboot to test that.

Re: move player controlled by console during playing movie.

Not quite sure what you mean, but omxplayer can be run from a console. Besides you have to use omxplayer anyways because it's the only one that has been optimized for the GPU in the PI. Other players will require the CPU to decode and that will be painfully slow with most video.

Re: Photo Frame as a Display

I would think refresh rate would be a problem though, they are rather slow on digital picture frames that weren't designed from the start to display video as well.

I agree, the issue of USB sound seems largely unaddressed. I can verify I got my Cambridge Audio USB dac working with Raspbmc RC4.

Re: Getting TOSLINK audio: status?

First I don't quite get why XBMC doesn't support alsa. Why is that?

For movies I'm find with the sound going to my TV, but when I want to play music the sound to go out the analog port to my stereo.

Re: Raspberry PCI

Unless I'm missing something I don't see the benefits to this. Most PC's CPU's are dual or quad cores, the CPU on the PI would add little benefit to the horsepower today's PC's have.

Re: Minimum power supply for a complete media centre

4A seems like a lot of power to be pushing through the wire traces on the PI's PCB...it would be better to look for a USB Hub that has been designed to supply this kind of power instead.

I have a headless pi and I need a way to perform a clean shutdown in the event that I lose wifi access to the pi, something in the OS or one of my programs locks up the pi, or maybe I just don't have remote access at all and need to shut it down. You should figure out what's locking up the PI...tha...

Re: Another Red Light Issue

If you have a PC and a cord with a micro USB connection, try powering the PI from the PC's USB port. If that works, then you've got a supply problem, if it doesn't work, then stop messing around and get a replacement PI.

Re: RPI as Dumb terminal

You don't say how you want to connect to your host system, but the RPI should have no problem acting as a dumb terminal. The system supports RDP for Windows based systems, VNC for just about any system with a VNC server, and then good old fashion Telnet and SSH clients.
