I hate to say it, but I gave up and bought wireless bridge in town, and that seems to be doing the job. And for whatever reason, it's gotten over its fit and is not having trouble opening my usb drive.
Only NOW it doesn't like any of the utf-8 characters in the folder names. I have TONS of Chinese media, but the names all come up as question marks (for instance, folders titled 陳, 卡, 旺, etc. each show up as "?"). I think xbmc then reads them as a single folder, because even though there are multiple ? folders, no matter which one is selected, the same files show up inside.
I've tried it on two usb drives, and it happens consistently. I've replaced fonts in the skin so I can SEE the files when/if I find them, but xbmc doesn't seem to get the folders clearly enough that I can really use it to listen to/watch anything Chinese. I don't have any trouble if I ftp over the files, though. Anyone else had this problem?

Does anyone else have the problem of the revo not fully suspending and instead bringing the system to a blinking white cursor on a black screen? It seems after that the only way to do anything is to hold down the powerbutton to shut it down and then restart. Any ideas on how to fix this?

it seems to be the hdmi cable i am using isnt rf-sheilded or something. i moved the usb wifi adapter from the back of the unit to the one on the front next to the power button and it is able to connect to my router with a low signal strength (about 31 percent as opposed to 62 percent when using vga).
probably an interference issue.

Ok tried and tried to get wireless working on my 3610 but every guide/walk through/instructions I've tried I cant get the wireless connection enabled.
I mostly followed the instructions on page 23 (dont want to put a long quote)
I'm getting an error after I try this command
the output error
also dont know why the error shows a misspelling of interface as interfae "Line 1: Invalid configuration line 'ctrl_interfae=/var/run/wpa_supplicant'.ap_scan=1"
I checked the wpa_supplicant for any errors, everything shows as it should
- bostoneric - 2010-01-04 03:32
ok just checked the wpa_supplicant.conf file AGAIN
deleted it all and rewrote it. i guess i wasnt seeing and error somewhere
this time when i ran
sudo wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext -dd
it did the scan and I had to Ctrl-C to break it
still testing out if the wireless is working.

I just tried this out with the Live version of XBMC Live (not the one I've installed and played around with and fixed up, etc.), and it seems to have the same problem. It doesn't seem to have this hiccup on windows vista. Linux gurus? I created all these folders on another linux box, so . . . hrm. I'm lost.

I just changed my Win7 XBMC on the Revo into the Live Version, because 1080p playback looks much more colourful. Everything seems to run perfect VDPAU etc, except the internet/lan-connection. I cant connect.
I entered the ubuntu console in safe-mode and edit /etc/network/interfaces because there was a wrong ip adress saved. After I finished typing I pressed CTRL+X+Y to save, but now again after save nothings happens.
I really dont know what to do and I just work with Linux the first time. Can somebody help me?

Hmm... I have my REVO connected to a 10/100/1000 hub/switch which connects back to my router via powerline ethernet. The IP address is hardcoded also... I wanted my WakeOnLAN to work.
I've had problems with a netbook recognizing my wireless network... or is somewhat delayed in finding my wlan. Sounds like this may be a more fundamental problem with Linux... have you tried searching the ubuntu forums?
