Idea is to use windows machine with DLNA media server and to transcode (on fly) whatever it is not supported for this XBMC.
Everything encoded in h.264 should work. Other formats will be nearly unusable. H.264 is the only one that's decoded on the GPU.
In order to get XBMC to exit correctly do I just add the line "fbset" in the location given above, or do I need to follow "fbset" with options representing the "new" display values?
Do the apt-get upgrade and update procedures also keep XBMC updated or do I need to follow an additional procedure for that?
I got two different responses from those who added fbset, and none of them worked for me. At least not always (It worked one time with just "fbset" and no settings at all, but i have no idea why
One of them was (from Beini):
After line 42. So
Code: Select all
fbset -fb /dev/fb0 "1812x1020"
and the other one was (from mrjbanksy):
I added the following line to the end of /usr/bin/xbmc-standalone:
Obviously you'd replace 1360x768 with the resolution of your TV/monitor.
You will not update XBMC via apt-get. It has to be recompiled to get the new versions.
If there is a new version, I will put out a new image with that
I'm currently playing around with my remote, but nothing working yet.
is anybody else having an issue after a period of time there is no display. Went back to it and had a blank display but could connect via winscp and also the android remote and play my videos but nothing on screen (I am connected via an Onkyo receiver). on a reboot it was OK again but not sure how long with no activity it does it??
Just in case I have just reflashed the latest image to see if was anything I have done
Never happened to me, not even after an hour, seems strange.
