Really? Then it either crashed or you grabbed the log while xbmc was still running. Sorry then ...

Oh yeah... so it wasn't a full log, you are absolutely right. XBMC was running, my girlfriend was watching tv.

i am using boblight for about a week, it is really great!
I just discovered that dark scenes in movies are not dark enough . As example: If i see a really dark scene my led are still lighting a bit up. I tried to change the settings in the boblight addon. So far every change seems to make the light brighter as the default settings. Am i doing anything wrong? Did i misinterpret the settings?

I'm having troubles installing boblight on latest XBMCbuntu (from http://www.xbmcfreak.nl/en/).
./configure stops with:
edit. chmod did the trick
edit2. also had to install build-essential and g++

anyone developing a bobolightd for windows? their is a compiled version posted by kimp but it doesn't seem to work...
- Memphiz - 2012-01-22 12:49
not that i know off ... the windows version you found is an old and incompatible version. You have to wait until one dev ports the current version over to windows. Thats not me atm...

Let me know what you did and what does not work. You may not have correct setting in your boblight.conf.

I compiled current SVN source with cygwin. As I said, I tested with your recent plugin and eden-beta.

Well that might work of course ... - there was an old offical boblight version (which existed for windows as well) - which is not compatible with that addon ...

I got myself the Adalight setup and it works with the processing tool, but that is kind of slow.
I've also tried Lightpack, which works pretty good but not within XBMC.
I want to get boblightd working. What I've been doing so far.
1. I've downloaded and uploaded the fastatmo.pde from this thread
http://www.adafruit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&p=124663 to my arduino
2. I've downloaded Boblight 1.3-beta 1 and used also the conf-file from the thread above.
3. I've downloaded the boblightd addon for XBMC
4. I've copied the dll-file into the addon folder
In XBMC I get a timeout.
18:41:51 T:4908 NOTICE: boblight: connection to boblightd failed: 127.0.0.1:19333 Connect timed out
The port is ok, so is the local ip adress of course. Running as admin doesn't change anything. Running bob on another computer with the ip adress configured in the plugin isn't working too.
What am I'm doing wrong or won't it work anyway. I always get a timeout.

That version of boblight is incompatible with the boblight addon, you need boblight from http://code.google.com/p/boblight/
I don't provide any binaries for windows, but you can get a boblightd compiled on cygwin here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=986377&postcount=99
