^ dd is probably your easiest method.
i do this on my usb harddrives that run various live-usb distros.
if you want specific partitions then use the partition device node (e.g. /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, ...)
the problem with this approach is that the harddrives should be the exact same size.
feel free to modify the above to create and distribute your changes so long as the devs dont have a problem with it.

Quote:hdmi to the TV optical to the reciever. any ideas?
Make sure that your TV supports DTS and DTS-passthrough. Overwice connect the Revo directly with the receiver. Hardly a TV supports DTS.

When I tell my XMBC revo to sleep, it wakes up immediately.
Any idea what might be causing this? It does it even if I remove all USB devices.

CloneZilla!! Will make a full disk image, and even create an ISO or thumb drive installer . Also it's free. If I get some time I could probably get an image for you.

I am fairly new to all this.
I have been running xbmc through my old xbox for awhile and I decided to go the acer revo route for HD. I have been able to install xbmc live with no problems and share with xbmc, the main problem I am having is I cannot connect to the internet. I have read all 49 pages of posts and can't find an answer. I know I need to check nework/interfaces file but when I nano it, it opens up as a new file. There are no settings in the file, I am not sure why this is happening.
I hope someone can help with this.
Thanks in advance

^ is this for wired or wireless internet ? these commands are to help us to know what your system thinks is installed (not necessarily to get you connected).
also, please post the contents of cat /etc/network/interfaces
and /etc/resolv.conf should contain your dns server.
depending on if ifconfig returns the name of your device, you mite need to turn it on by doing something like: sudo ifconfig device up
you can also run lsmod to see if the wireless driver module is plugged-in.

It is for a wired connection
iwconfig, iwlist device scan, iwconfig device essid and dhclient:
I hope this is enough info to get me sorted.

according to your ifconfig output, your eth0 ethernet card is active and has an ip address.
please post the results of cat /etc/resolv.conf
and also, can you try
