wondering if anyone can help me. I have setup as per the readme on a linux command line (installed from the livecd)
Everything went smoothly, and when i installed the webserver i could see the default page load fine that was in /var/www
however when i try to access a php file, it prompts me to download it?? not sure where to start with it
any help would be appreciated thanks

Congrats on the progress!
I wanted to add to my earlier message that the interface controls did indeed stay at the top of my screen

Since you don't say WHAT kind of distro you use, I can't really help you, but if you are using XBMC Live CD or Ubuntu or Debian:
apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-common php5-gd php5-suhosin
apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
but only if the first one fails.
Yast (Opensuse, suse)
yast2 (i thought, else yast) install php5, else open the gui and search for php5 + the PHP5 module for Apache2
Btw sorry to keep you waiting on the promised update of beta 0.5, but I didn't had time left this weekend, I will release it this week!
Btw2, Opera 10 beta for Android will be there soon ! (Only for manufacturers at first, but I guess it will leak anywhere near soon). This because Android Browser won't work in mode 0.

Sorry i was running live, i have fixed the issue now I needed to-
and it worked perfecto!!
I have a question about your indexing sccript though. I kicked it off about 20 minutes ago and all im seeing is a blank page that is still loading, but looking inside the php file suggests it should be telling me what it is doing??
Is this nomral?
Thanks again, this remote is superb!

Its still running an hour later? still a blank page and no files are been created in the images folder on the box. Not sure whats gwan here
- XiniX88 - 2009-12-15 11:44
There was a bug (see prev page) that would cache the images again and again (so it didn't cache the images). This bug is fixed in the following release:
XBMC HTTP-R v0.5 Alpha 2
- Fixed image caching bug (blank pages that will be there "forever")
- New stretching interface! (might not work on some devices!)
--- Not all interfaces are having benefit of this feature
If there aren't any bugs left, this will be the final PHP release (next will be the Java release).
For people who don't see images at all, please use the tv/movie scrapers! Don't generate images yourself (these can't be indexed last time I checked (which is the 9.04 release)).
Please don't forget to use the indexing.php script first! (Your XBMC PC/XBOX must be turned on!)
Note: please launch the indexing.php script in Firefox or Internet Explorer, Chrome doesn't let you see the progress!
Very slow, even after indexing - soeren72 - 2009-12-16 21:23
Thanks for for using your time developing this app.
I'm having a problem with the speed.
Before indexing it took 5 min, listing my tv shows
I then did a full indexing, I can see all the pictures in /var/www/images/tvshow (also in episodes)
But it still takes 5 min to list the tvshow icons.
Could it be it's not using the stored pictures ?
Edit: tryed to disconnect my ADSL, and now I don't get any pictures, only text

I thought I fixed the problem... I will create a new version and release it on sunday... (btw, are you sure you used the 0.5a2 version?).
- soeren72 - 2009-12-17 15:16
Thanks for replying, I will check on the version when I get home, in a few hours
- soeren72 - 2009-12-17 18:48
checked, i'm running 0,5a2
Just tryed to copy the files to the web-server again, and it's still the same
