You can set this within xbmc

Thanks for all the work Koenkk.

This seems so much faster than e.g. Raspbmc.

But as a total Linux/XBMC/RPi newbie I'm now stuck.

I've installed XBian on a 2GB card connected to my iMac and Apple Airport Extreme Base Station router in 'bridge' mode. It's updated the clock based on country but when I tried to download add-ons like YouTube or Vimeo, it said 'working' but nothing else happened - I saw the 'Downloading 0%' for a second or two and then back to the previous screen.

How do I play video/audio files from my iMac or from a plugged in USB stick or drive?

Tried it, works fine. In fact, better than expected.
Very rare glitches in 1080p / DTS content (think of a 0.5 sec gap every 2-3 minutes), XBMC interface is fast as well.

Congrats to the author!

The fastest and most stable image I have tried so far, great work! Only problem i'm facing is that when I try to open "music" it crashes to the terminal? Anybody else with this problem?

really well done!!
this release is super fast!!

looking forward to airplay ... but could you also have a look at hdmi-cec support? http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... f=7&t=2485

it is already implemented in openelec and for those of us with compatible tv sets it's very very useful

anyway, keep up the good work and thanks for your work!

Ahaa, the old sneaky appearance settings trick :p Thanks

One last thing, how do I swap between HDMI and Composite out? Sometimes I`ll need to hook it up to my old CRT TV

thanks again

lol I'm gonna look like I didn't even check, but pretty sure there was only an option to change Audio out between HDMI and Analogue

I`ll have another look thanks

Great work on this Keonkk !

Have yet to receive my Pi, have a question....

Does the "Skins" add-on Function work ?

If so, has anyone tried different 'Skins'

Is that the "Enable LCD/VFD" setting ?

It does but most of the skins won't work well on the pi .

I think the raspberry pi auto detects wich video output to use ( the one who is plugged in).

That's what I thought too, but earlier I unplugged HDMI and plugged in Composite and nothing appeared on the TV, plugged HDMI back in and the LCD worked again

Maybe I have to boot with the composite only in

Finally created an account just to post my love for XBian. I installed 0.1 yesterday, 0.1.1 today and now I want to grab 0.2. This may be a stupid question so please don't hate, but can I upgrade within xbmc or do I need to reformat and reset my settings each time I want to upgrade?

Yes. The switch only happens on boot.

How can I install Xbian on Mac OSX.
Copy the files to the SD Card, Clone with Disk Utility?

Thanks.

No, but maybe you can try this http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:XBMC_Backup

First off, this is by far the smoothest implementation of XBMC that I have used on my 'Pi, congrats!

I've been using XBMC for a while, but I'm still getting the hang of the 'Pi, so can anyone point me in the right direction for how to configure my USB WIFI adapter in this? It does show up when it boots, but I don't see anywhere to connect it to my network.
