yes still no internet
it doesn't seem to connect for scraping
I can't ftp to the revo either, it has got me stumped
Do I need to change it to a static ip?

If you have live you can't ftp it, you have to sftp (WinSCP is free and 100% works ). As for scraping I would try to get net working first, on your home screen, do you have 1) temperature (confluence shows it all the time unless you turn it off) or 2) Rss feeds, if you have either you most definitely have internet.
Also, if you have confluence, you can click right on the "system" option, hit "System Info" then choose "Network". This gives Link/IP/Internet status.

will try the sftp
The right click does not seem to work for me on system
no rss feeds and weather not working either

When I say right click, I mean push the right arrow (remote or keyboard) not a mouse click. If you are on confluence try that.

MAC address: keeps changing
Internet: Connected, but no DNS is available
- Rusty McCrusty - 2010-03-31 01:06
I noticed that the mac address wasn't the same each time.
I went to my routers admin page that 10.1.1.7 was not in the dhcp clients list.
Did a reinstall of xbmc and the ip has changed to 10.1.1.4 which is fine, the mac address stays the same every time the system info page refreshes, I can now sftp to the revo, it was doing the internet connected but no dns available.
It has now changed to internet:connected but still have no rss feeds or weather or scraping and then changed to DNS not available

Hi, just to let you knwo i am completly new to this forum and xbmc and anything linux like...that out the way i really need some help please! it's driving me crazy....
I am tryign to get XBMC live on my acer revo 3600 HDD...this is what happens
Everything seems to install as it should, but then when the system reboots it seems to load, the xbmc logo comes up and then nothing...just a black screen... i can press the ctrl alt f4 to get to the command prompt and login but thats it! Ive used the same USB installation on another system and it goes all the way and i get to xbmc, so it can't be that...any ideas or help would be most appreciated!!!

Hey guys I've been having problems with my Revo.. It seems like every 20 or 30 minutes the video skips or completely stops (video is stored on revo's HDD) for about a minute and then has to catch up for a while..
I'm using XBMC and MPC-HC as an external player.. Anyone know what's going on here?
XBMC live on USB, cant find windows partitioned drive when adding source - alpha_thetas - 2010-04-02 06:07
newbie here, love xbmc on the revo. But I've been trying to solve this one problem for weeks.
I am only able to watch movies from Hard drives that are connected via USB, however the internal hard drive (windows partition) to the computer does not show up or and cant be added found as a source. Since the usb boots itself, i'm assuming its not a windows issue but I tried sharing the drives and removing firewall anyways and nothing has worked. Can anyone help on this?
XBMC Live Version - Camelot
OS - Windows XP w/ SP3
Hardware stats - Intel ATOM 230 1.6GHz Processor
1GB of DDR2 Memory
Partition HD (C: and D 160GB total.

I installed live before I had a serious look at it, but I'm pretty sure that the windows partition is ntfs, I know that some versions of linux can read ntfs, but afaik it doesn't do this natively, if I had to guess, that is likely the cause of your problem. All external flash drives format fat(generally 32, but could also be fat16/fat12) which just about anything can read. I would highly recommend ditching windows outright, and run in straight from the little hard drive inside.
