Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

I just installed XBian and I think that it's great (1080p vids mkv >7gb over home network). If anybody is interested in seeing it in action and getting an overview I've uploaded a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2-eUrGbl0I

hi,

just loaded the latest release 0.6

pretty slick.

i think this is the fastest so far out of openelec and raspbmc

the big problem i have is trying to use my mce remote doesn't work, i can move left to right and some other buttons. but the majority of the buttons don't work. e.g. select.

anybody else having this problem?

This is probably a key mapping issue. You need to map the keys manually I guess :(

Looks good, I'll give it a test tonight :)

One thing I should point out - I was planning on using my old MCE remote to control XBMC on the pi (on whatever distribution I ended up with), but haven't even plugged it in. I've found the official XBMC remote app (for android and ios) works perfectly with all distributions, so it's definitely something I'd recommend for people who are having remote issues.

nice video :) might be an idea to rename your media files before posting a video online though ;)

It really has to something to do with your pi/sdcard or power adapter because ur the first to report this issue.
Thanks Koenkk! I didn't realise that my plug didn't have enough amps! Would not have thought of that!

i don't think its the keymapping. the default keymapping from xbmc has always been fine.

i played around with it a little and tried one in the the keymaps folder just in case and it didn't make any difference.

i think it might be a combined kernel and lirc problem...wild guess though. i'll try and look into it further not sure how much help i'll be though.

Hi, Koenkk

My Raspberry Pi finally arrived today. (yay)
Tried Xbian 0.6 and had no problems installing on running it. :D

I really appreciate your work on this Project. Thanks

Is there any way to change the Start-Up logo ?

Here's a quick design i did of an alternative logo which has a little more Xbmc flavour to it.

I have a 32gb SD card. Is the image on the website ok to use for a larger SD card or is it made for smaller ones?

You can use the image on larger cards, you will just need to resize the partition to fill the card.

is there a list of formats which can be played on the RPI or its dependet on the software.

I`m asking because I had some problems with playing *.rmvb, *.vob, *.asf, *.wmv

Can the latest release run this formats.

BTW. Logo is super.

About this, does anyone have a guide for doing this?
I found one on youtube, but the commands used in the video doesnt seem to do the same on Xbian (I just enter the terminal by pressing CTRL + C when the RasPi is booting.

Can I import my userdata from xbmc on openelec so I don't have to setup all of my stuff again?

you can import your sources.xml and maybe your guisettings.xml but everything else its best to start off from scratch because they could be using different builds of xbmc which would cause it all not show up properly

I'm having a similar issue. I had all of my input devices (KB, Mouse, MCE) plugged into a powered USB hub and was having nothing but problems navigating the menus. (key presses either didn't register or took several seconds)

I removed the hub from the Pi and plugged the MCE's IR directly into the a USB port on the Pi. Happily everything now runs smoothly. This doesn't seem to be a commonly reported issue so I thought that I'd mention it. I've tried other distros without issue.

Here is the hub that I'm using. http://www.monoprice.com/products/produ ... 1&format=2

BTW, nice work!

One nasty thing: My logitech wireless keyboard/mouse K400 is not always detected by XBMC. The funny thing is it works in the terminal?!?

Any suggestions? I tried to plug in the receiver in a powered USB hub but the result was the same.
In previous XBian versions it was working better. Sometimes I had to reboot my pi to make my K400 work in XBMC.

Thanks KB

Also - Is anyone else seeing these messages in the black bar above the video? Or is anyone else using PAL SDTV and NOT seeing them?
I have the same message (actually two lines with the same message, but another amount of bytes) on top of my screen. I am also seeing two small black bars (top and bottom) but that's probably the video size.
