I didn't either, but it was well worth the purchase.

Here's some of my log files. I think I did it right. Can anyone determine what's wrong with my system?

Helping a friend with his new machine. It came with 2gb ram so changed the video to 512mb and i have an external dvd drive but it's not seeing it at all, all it sees is the HDD.

OK, this seems like it should be simple enough.
I installed XBMC Live on my Acer Revo 1600's internal 160gb drive. I then FTP'd into it and created a folder at "/home/Movies" so that I could upload some files instead of just wasting all of the free space.
My problem is I have no clue how to add that folder as a share in the video library. Any attempt I make to locate or point to it gets denied. I even edited the "nodiskmount" from the menu.lst hoping that would help.
So what am I doing wrong? Is there somewhere else the files need to be put or and I totally missing a setting?
EDIT: I broke down and posted this after nearly 3hrs of searching around/messing with the revo. Less than 10 minutes later I figured it out myself. You have to create your new folders inside "/home/<username>/". Then when you add a video source just choose "Home Folder". Sigh.

New to the forums. Ive looked around a bit, and cant seem to resolve this issue... I have the Acer 3610, and my HD content is stuttering. The content is connected via USB directly.
I updated the lastest driver from NVidia.
Under system info, it says GPU: NVidia Ion
on the first post in this thread, the OP reccomends:
VIDEO: Setting > Video > Play:
Set Render to - VDPAU
I cannot find this option. Is that my problem?
edit: Im running XBMC from windows.... does this only work on the XBMC live method?
edit 2: Boxee is playing back the files fine..... also running from XP. wierd.

That is correct. You can only enable VDPAU on Linux-based XBMC installs and XBMC Live.
Windows does have the DSPlayer and other methods of video acceleration though. Take a look at the Windows part of the forum.
XBMC Live on Acer Aspire Revo AR1600 - conchamp - 2010-05-05 19:43
I have XBMC live installled on Acer Aspire Revo AR3610 and it works great. I am looking at building one more, but may be a more cost effective variant.
Has anyone tried XBMC live on Aspire Revo AR1600? i guess this uses a slower atom 230 processor.

I run XBMC live on 2 1600s and works fine for me and I stream a good deal of 1080p content. The processor I dont believe is any slower, just that it is a single-core.

I thought the 230 was slower. In any case, I also use the 230 and can watch 1080p content without a problem. Works perfectly for me.

Both the 230 and 330 are clocked at 1.6GHz, just that the 230 is single core and 330 is dual core.
