Can you include a wifi driver for wifi dongle RTL8188CU
This a widely available wifi ranging from £1.50 -£5 depending on how long willing to wait for delivery
It's had reports of working on debian raspbmc etc but I don't like them find them laggy to much compared to openelec but openelec does not have this driver installed
Hope to hear back from you soon
Hi, green little man
I would be happy to include that. But the only thing i found was this script: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=6256
I can (and will) include that script (or a script to download and run this script, that would make it possible to always get the latest version
), but the user will need to run the script manually.
My solution would be to include it in the instructions. That isn't a "plug and play" solution, but hey, you shouldn't buy an raspberry pi if you can't even type one command
I would be interested in one of those 1.50 devices, especially those that can run without powered usb hub, (china shipping is fine), can you point me to one?
The cheapest one i could find was for about 5USD with shipping.
@john.mills about overscan
I have it set do disable_overscan as that is what makes it fit my screen without any additional settings. If you see black borders please report and well try to find a fix that works for everyone out of the box (if thats possible)

Im pretty sure the instructions to build xbmc work on debian too.
If you don't want to compile yourself, you should eather get openelec, or raspbian with my precompiled xbmc.
To finish this post, I just wanted to say that xbmc is currently buildning on the new official image ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 66&t=11365
Im also looking into the possibility to make a menu to choose between console and xbmc at boot. If it has remote control support, that would be a perfect solution
