thanks anyway, no problem.
Does any one else Which one is best Windows Vista to use :32bit or 64 bit?
*I also plan to do a bit of light gaming*
Thanks in advance

well - all i know is that xbmc for 64bit linux has some problems currently. mainly the webinterface does not work and i get strange scanner issues.
that said i don't think there's any point in sticking to a 64bit OS for a more or less dedicated HTPC. It won't run any faster and you're likely to get into problems with 32bit software (though not a clue how's that on windows).
I'd go for 32bit - even if it's windows. If you have equal or less than 4GB of RAM in that box there's no point at all.

My lcd screen (benq) works. But when i connect my projector instead over hdmi i get nothing.
Try to dectect the display but it finds nothing.Tried manually editing xconf.org
I see the ubuntu boot screen but after that the picture's gone.

i just got my asrock 330 earlier this week and was having this problem until earlier today (no hdmi sound).
i have no idea if this is right because i tried every combination of hdmi/hdmi default/hdmi etc type config in the audio section, but it is working every time for me now when i reboot.
1] if you are running the xbmc binary as a non root user, are you in the audio group? you wont be able to write to /dev/audio of this is not correct
2] also, i have no idea if this is normal or something strange with my setup, but i have my asrock plugged into my yamaha receiver via an hdmi cable, which then feeds to my 5.1 speakers and plasma hdtv. ive noticed that if i turn my asrock on before i turn on the receiver and then relevant hdmi input, then i will not ever get any video or audio output no matter what if i flip back and forth between inputs even after the asrock is up and ready for logins.
does the receiver have to be on to hear the initial hdmi "handshake" or something like this for it to work? i dont know if hdmi works like this or not. once i noticed this, and had my audio config set back to: hdmi / hdmi for both settings, it has worked everytime sofar today since ive done this.
Newbie XBMC on Linux (ASRock 330 + XBMC) - cyberpark - 2009-07-10 10:54
Hello all XBMC Linux users!
Been using XBMC over many years now, from the original Xbox XBMC versions to XBMC Windows version when HD content came for full.
Just bought an ASRock 330 after reading some good reviews. This box got everything except Wireless, HDMI 1.3, IR sender and USB in front - I could live with that!
After reading alot of feedback and reviews on the experience on running XBMC on the ASRock 330 HTPC I knew I had to migrate over to the XBMC Linux build - a scary step for a Windows technocrat.
I must admit I have played a little with Linux, but not enough to feel comfortable on installing my new Digital Home Entertainment system on.. Therefore I hope I could get some answers in this forum.
Primarly functions on my HTPC:
Hence some questions:
It would be great to get some constructive answers (except "Google-is-your-friend" replies )
Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work in the XBMC Community.
