Hai,

for the few debian users, i updated the packages for wheezy.
I added also some extra info how to setup/install for wheezy.

look here : http://thuis.van-belle.nl/
added ati fglrx install info.
lightdm bug fix info, autologon does not work out of the box in wheezy.

More to come.

- sensors error resolved by installing lm-sensors package
FYI, I also had to create a .asoundrc for xbmc (since I'm not using HDMI for sound) and I also got sensors installed (I use phpSysInfo for easy web access to sysinfo like S.M.A.R.T etc. on my htpc). I also use Monit to monitor sshd (don't want to be without it when running nodm), tvheadend, forked-daapd and nodm. Here's a copy of my .asoundrc (I'm using 2 ch analog output):
Code:
pcm.!default {
type hw
card 1
}

ctl.!default {
type hw
card 1
}

nice job. If you repackage the Xvba branch as is(with the same configure flags) you might want to add a note, that it only works with ATI hardware, as I purposefully disable Vdpau and Vaapi.

I'll chime in as well then Smile.

Arch packages are here:
Eden (beta 1)
GIT

great stuff Smile
You might want to change the GIT link of the xvba package to https://github.com/FernetMenta/xbmc/tree/xvba as the official xbmc does not support xvba yet.

Does any one have problems with Movie Library mode after doing this HowTo? I can't get movies added how much I even try.

TV Shows gets added to Library without any problems. In a previous XBMC Live installation Movies were added to Library.

I have searched the forum but found only one "guide" which I checked and copied how to enable Movie Library. Everything I could find is enabled.

Anyone with ideas?


- wsnipex - 2012-01-06 20:36

did you set the content on the movie source correctly? Also look if it's supposed to use the foldername or filename for scraping.


- Tikken Baxter - 2012-01-06 20:52

Content is correct. I added a folder with Movies directly underneath it and another folder with a folder for each movie. I have a few hundred movies.

In previous XBMC Live installation I was just adding Movie folder and it were added directly. (XBMC with Lars GIT, if that matters)

Adding movies in same way as TV shows, so I can't understand what's going wrong.

- Tikken Baxter - 2012-01-06 21:21

fritsch Wrote:You could just select: Optical in xbmc and choose spdif. This should work fine.
Perhaps you need a .asoundrc which directly maps to your spdif.

pcm.!default spdif

Remember only one audio source at a time will be hearable. Should be good enough for xbmc.

This sounds like a gibberish to me, but I'll search a little info about this.
Thanks for the patience Smile

I had a hang while playing and navigating menus.
Here is the pastebin link, unfortunately I forgot to enable debug

I'll do that, thanks.
