Re: Should we make a wiki page for overscan settings?

Many TV's don't have such an option.

Or we could produce a graphic which has overscan counts on each side...

You could also talk to you local linux users group.

Just google your town and "lug" and you'll probably find a slightly odd bunch of people who will be only too willing to help.

What size was the initial zip file.

There should be a .img file when unpacked - that is the image.  The sha1 is to allow you to verify that it has unpacked correctly.

Re: Requests for you lucky Pi owners

I'm going to start testing openelec.tv after I put the kids to bed.

Both of those questions will probably get answered as part of that testing.

PS - There is no public release yet.

Re: Is this Power Supply Suitable?

Barely - assuming of course that it has a MicroUSB output.

700mA can be drawn by the board itself, leaving nothing for any peripherals.
