1. The fan works fine for me on my Revo 3610
2. HDMI works out of the box, you may have to change the audio settings in XBMC to use HDMI. Video worked right away with no extra config
3. It run Ubuntu underneath, which should have no problem with the size of the HDD. If you want to try it, boot any computer you have off the live DVD and see if it will recognize the drive though.

My .asoundrc file looks like his:
Does anybody else have a similar problem? What does your .asoundrc look like?
BTW I'm running xbmcfreak911 live v13

I've been playing around with adding music playlists, but I can't figure out how to delete them. What am I missing?
Do I have to ftp in and delete the files?
For ftp, do I need to remember the username and password that I setup when I installed xbmc?
Thanks for your help.

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but is there any way to tell if my R3610 is making use of the Broadcom Crystal HD that I've installed?
When I play a 1080p MKV file, the CPU usage sits around the 10% mark, regardless of whether the Crystal HD is physically installed - I've tested the same file with the Crystal HD in and out of the Revo.
My knowledge of Linux (and XBMC) is extreme beginner at best, so I installed Dharma Beta 4 release because my understanding is that this release supports the Crystal HD. I really wouldn't have a clue on how to integrate drivers in to the stable XBMC release.
Any help would be appreciated.

I am doing this now. I have all my media on a 2TB WD drive that XBMC plays from. It works beautifully.

I would like to do this too, but am afraid since it's been working so well for the past year. Do I upgrade the kernel, just xbmc, will it screwup the nvidea? Since we have been doing this thread for how to set it up, maybe it's time for how to update\upgrade the Revo...

yeah, i too am having trouble with the upgrade to beta-4:

Any tips or suggestion on how to do the upgrade? do I need to do both, or can I just upgrade to Dharma?

After reading numerous reviews about the R3610, I decided to take a gamble and purchase one.
I've managed to set up XBMC Live, however I have spent the past 12 hours trying to set up the network.
To my understanding, i am supposed to download the WLAN drivers by plugging the ethernet cable and typing:
sudo apt-get update
however I receive a message which states that it has been unable to fetch
I am a complete noob and would be grateful for any help.
