schneidz Wrote:doesnt the live-usb version need to have a usb hard drive. i may not be understanding your question but if the revo doesnt have a cd drive then how are you running xbmc ?I have a USB BD DVD drive on mine, and it boots and runs and installs xbmc or anything else from it. My use of a USB memory stick was an afterthought after seeing you guys talking about 'needing' it. I never did.

either the original question was stupid or i wasnt understanding it ?

to answer your question about booting from an HD, yes you can.

So last night I installed the LiveCD release of Dharma and I've lost my menu sounds. I tried the .asoundrc trick but it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

You might be better using xbmc freaks version, which worked for me out of the box

Curious to hear more about your USB BD drive on the Revo. Can it play native blu-ray movies? Can you play movie files archived on BD discs?
Sounds like a great addition to the Revo.

i cannot get my device to connect to my wireless access point, or even recognize that i have a usb adapter plugged in. i have an acer revo r1600 with xbmc live installed to the hard drive so that xbmc boots when the revo turns on. i've came across many posts with varying instructions on things to type in the command line, but i dont even know how to access the command line. i am a total noob when it comes to anything linux related eg sudo commands.
i was reading this post
this seems like it would go a long way towards fixing my problem, but like i said, i dont even know how to get to the command line. a different forum post said ctrl + alt + F1 would get me to command line, but nothing happened. any help would be greatly greatly appreciated

If you are in the regular XBMC interface hitting CTRL+ALT+F1 or CTRL+ALT+F2 should bring up a terminal (console or tty whatever you'd like to call it)
From there if you run "iwconfig" you should see if you have any wireless devices that are listed. For me none were showing until I added another driver, but I own a Revo 3610.
Try running iwconfig and post back what it says.
If you cannot get to a console, while you are in XBMC, simply go to the power button, and select "Exit XBMC" that will definitely boot you to a console/termain/command prompt.

I thinking to buy an Acer revo, but until that, I have some questions:
1.- If i install the XBMC Live version, i saw it come with a Linux distro. I already have a problem with a Laptop, Acer Aspire, I already install an Ubuntu version, but the fan doesn´t work... The Revo have the same problem?
2.- HDMI works unter Linux? audio/video.
3.- I have a 1.5Tb HDD, wich make me troubles with windows, because the SO doesn´t detect the 1.5TB, that was Nvidia problem, i just have to make an update. Linux have the same problems with biggers HDD?
