you can either plug it into a ethernet router and ssh into it or you can plug a usb keyboard in and hold down ctrl-alt-f2 and log in (xbmc/xbmc).
you mite need an internet connection to apt get install gcc to compile the wireless driver.

I got it to recognize the wireless device as ra0 and now am trying to find the post where it showed how to set it up with WEP encryption...
Editing because I posted before I restarted...

It doesn't seem to be working. It's giving me...
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
in the iwconfig it's showing
and in the iwlist scan it's showing
DJU6K is what I want to connect to so I'm currently searching for how to tie the two together... Any advice is welcome!

It's up and running now! Not sure exactly what I did to get it going but I think adding WICD helped. Now all I have to do is figure out how to change the audio from HDMI to Optical...

XBMC Live doesn't seem to want to install into my USB flash drive. It's a 1gig drive, how much space do I actually need?

You don't need to install it onto the USB drive, you should just be able to make it a bootable device and copy the ISO image to it.

Im hoping someone can help me. Ive got a r3610 and no matter what i do i cant play .mkvs back perfectly. There is also a slight stutter every 10 seconds or so. Like a split second freeze. My popcorn hour played everything flawlessly.
Ive tried ububtu and xbmc, then windows and xbmc/boxee/haali movie splitter/k-lite codec etc and they all gave me the same stutter.
My last chance was xbmc live which i installed last night (xbmc freak) and i still get this stutter.
Ive set the gpu buffer thing to 512 in the bios and enabled DXVA in windows/VDAPU in live and still get this problem.
Someone please help me!

I'd just like to say that this forum had been very helpful, thanks to everyone!
Got everything working off the USB drive, HDMI audio work-no jitters or anything and fast forwarding/rewind with no lag.
I just have 3 small things that I can't seem to correct.
1. The resolution seems a little off. It's a little too big so everything gets cut off from all sides in XBMC UI.
2. Video is a little too dark. I thought I found someone here who had the same problem but for the life of me I can't seem to find that post again in this 60+ thread.
3. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I cannot FTP into XBMC Live. I am using WinSCP with the correct IP address. I get "Network Error: Connection refused". The USB thumb drive is connected when I'm trying to FTP.
Thanks to anyone who can help =)
