Ouch, we got a specific post on Lifehacker !
The article contains some small errors here and there - e.g. ATI cards are not supported right now, references to an old blog post for V1 were referred to the new V2; nonetheless quite a nice hit.

You deserve a lot of kudos for this project. I tried it out the other day and was extremely impressed. If I can figure out how to get my Antec IR and VFD working, I'll be tickled pink.
One question, is there any way to use the programs section to run a browser window? It would come in handy while troubleshooting XBMC (I used a laptop while typing away on the HTPC command line).

The best way to debug is using an ssh session, username=xbmc, password=password.
Adding a bowser would significantly add to the install size and we are trying to keep that low.
You should also be able to cnt-alt F2 into a terminal window but I find an ssh session less intrusive.

Wow. I'm stunned by this. Worked perfectly first time I tried it. Thumbs up to developer!
I got a few questions tho. I can't seem to ssh to the LiveXBMC pc. Is ssh not installed?
And how about updates? Is it possible to update it over internet or do we have to update the memory stick manually?

Where would i find this file in the img and how would i go about inserting the modified one? Just use Winimg?

see http://code.google.com/p/atv-bootloader/wiki/InstallLiveXBMC for a working MS USB mce remote info.
install ssh and use scp to copy it into place. Don't know anything about Winimg, I use Linux and OSX.

Thanks. I'll give it a shot and let you know how it goes.
Final config options - dusty_nz - 2008-06-08 13:37
Got the remote configured but it doesn't seem to autostart on reboot. How do I set that.
Also I am having problems with my sony TV. It can run 1280x768 however the liveXBMC only allows 1024x768. How do change this. Also any good locations on configuring xorg.conf?
actually - dusty_nz - 2008-06-08 14:14
got the video working.
Sounds needs boosting. Is there aq volume file anyware.
Also still no luck on the lirc. I am editing the /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file and no luck. Please find below
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="DViCO USB Remote"
#Chosen IR Transmitter
#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
