It was working fine with the old setup and same lead works fine in my TV but for some reason this release isn't picking it up.
I've deleted all of the lines in the file as mentioned on a previous page and have even tried manually inputting my routers ip address into the SMB settings part of ZMBC and rebooted but no change, if i try to access a through VideoFiles Browse my Windows Samba share it comes up with 'Error 2 : Share not available'
I'm guessing its down to the original bootup where raspbian isn't connecting to the network but it flashes thru so quick to the countdown screen that i don't see what it says. I've gone back to terminal and done ifconfg and that says basically no network.
Any pointers where i can go from here ?? Would love to get this working and hopefully not regualarly freezing when stopping files or clicking Home like openelec did.
You could try disabling the firewall on the samba computer , for the blackbars you may have to add something to you config.txt , search on google : elinux config.txt , its a wiki with all availbe things you can put in the config.txt
Thanks but i never actually mentioned any blackbars ?? But tried the firewall to no avail, didn't think it would as its not even recognising my router and seems , more like an issue on initial bootup than in general connection of XBMC.
Is there an SMB.conf file instaled as there was on openelec ? if so maybe theres a setting in there thats now correct, although again i think it would need to connect to the network on bootup and assign an IP address before any of that came into use.
Seems a real shame as most of it looked good, may have to just try installing Raspbmc and see if that has same issues, else its back to my original setup and the problems that came with that
Is there a batch file or similar that runs where i can stop it from clearing the screen before it gives the option of CTRL-C to got to terminal then hopefuly i can see any messages at the end of bootup regarding the network connection ?
