I have a similar problem. If i boot with two navigation devices (like usb keyboard and usb mouse), it freezes. Sometimes the ctrl-alt-del does the reboot, sometimes it doesn't. But if you unplug the keyboard when this happens, it unfreezes and you can continue using the mouse. :shock:

Ah, so it might be a power problem after all? I'll try to get my hands on a powered usb hub and connect the keyboard to that.
It's a Logitech K400 btw, which reportedly should work fine.

I have a powered hub. It makes no difference, so I doubt it's a power problem ;)

Pulled a build of OpenELEC the other day, which works, but the git version results in a database mismatch with the git version of XBMC on my laptop, so I have been trying to build from source on my Ubuntu 12.04LTS, but am getting the following error. All the build packages suggested on the OpenELEC wiki have been installed, and double-checked. I have googled the heck out of the error but have got nowhere. any ideas or suggestions?

Code: Select all

Now I can't switch it back. Hitting either arrow (up or down) simply asks me if I want to keep the current resolution.

Any ideas?
In guisettings.xml the line you edited
<screenmode>WINDOW</screenmode>
change to
<screenmode>DESKTOP</screenmode>

or just delete guisettings.xml, it will be recreated after a reboot with default settings.
Awesome thanks.

For those using VirtualBox or similar it might be easier to configure a small second hard disk as a fake SD card for the purpose of creating images rather than putting up with the slower IO to a real SD card. I did a blog post with more details on this approach.

Earlier today I tried Rasbmc and that could see the drive ok. I'm completely new to Linux and wasn't sure where I should have been looking anyway, but with Raspbmc when I went to "Add Source" I found my drive under Root filesystem/media/usb. (Under media there was a list of USB, USB0, USB1 etc) Is this where it's supposed to be located? With OpenElec though there are no USB entries listed under Root filesystem/media/ and I couldn't see the drive anywhere else. So is it me, or has something gone wrong somewhere?

Thanks,

Same problem here.
Same problem here.
Also same problem here. I can't find the usb hdd anywhere in OpenELEC. I tried different filesystems (ext3, ext3, fat32), but nothing worked. I also added the hdd partition as storage to the cmdline.txt, but I got an error on the boot screen saying it could not find the storage partition. Is there no automount support yet?

Trying our r11211. Didn't try a fresh db scan or connect to my mysql db, just played a vid or two. CPU usage/stability during SD playback is very good now. CPU is something like 3-13% without interacting with the video; this jumps up to 30-40% by using the mouse to pause or access the menus. I call that a marked improvement over the last few builds.
Not sure it's worth trashing the db and retesting thumbnails and artwork issues unless we know that anything in that department has changed.

I tried upgrading to 11212 from 10950 by copying over the kernel and system files, but just got a blank screen on startup so not sure if there have been some big changes between those versions. Went back to 10950 for now but has anyone else tried it?

dont forget to update the bootloaderfiles on the first partion on your sdcard. we ship actualy bootloaderfiles with every build, you find them in 3rdparty/bootloader folder

There have been big changes, on both the xbmc and openelec sides, and in the kernel. You should definitely do as sraue said and copy the bootloader files. The way xbmc handles thumbnails and the xbmc videos database have both changed significantly since r10950, so expect some issues there. Otherwise go for it

Will my existing db be ok, or should I just delete everything and start again?

Your existing database will be automatically upgraded (if necessary). I would advise deleting your Thumbnails folder, and also the local Databases/Texture*.db (then rebooting) so that images are regenerated.

I tried as-is to start with and it loaded fine once I copied over the additional files. Menus seem faster, but 1080p playback over SMB now has a few buffering issues for me. I'm wondering if it's downloading/updating something in the background so will leave it on and try again in the morning.

Guys, I just tried R11212 and that sees my external hard drive no problem. Still a very buggy build as far as I'm concerned though.

Hi all,

My XBMC seems to have an issue saving the movie information. If I 'c' click and select 'Movie information' it brings up the correct thumb, fan art, etc but then as soon as I scroll to the next movie the file resets to blank.

Any ideas?

what skins do you want?

I have gotten a few to work with my skin manager.
Aeon nox (makes the gui so slow its not worth it)
and quartz* (the one based on AppleTV)

if i can get the file im sure i can just preload it on the img for you.

Ok, I've installed an image of r11170 and updates to r11212, kernel, system and bootloader. Everything is running fine, but in video addons, I cant seem to install "The Trailers" addon, it just jump back to the list, shows "Downloading 0%" and the just stops without any sign of starting in the first place!

Any thoughts?
