Thanks folks! First for this great guide, second for the solution to the last big problem: sound over HDMI! This is the solution for no sound over HDMI for XBMC on Linux on ASROCK 330. Yes, I spelled it out so the search engines can do their work and lead all who run into the same problems as I did into the great solution previously described!

I've been over at nvnews.net, and it seems that I'm not the only one having trouble with the .31 and .36 drivers. I have been recommeded to downgrade to the 18.14 version and see if this helps. I have earlier installed the latest NVIDIA driver using step 1 - 5 in this guide(the PPA way). I have now downloaded the 185.18.14 driver and I want to perform a full downgrade to this version. I'd be very grateful if someone could assist with the steps needed? And since I'm a Linux newbie, please be gentle:-)

You have downloaded from NVIDIA?
You need to remove the PPA installation first then you just follow the instruction from the NVIDIA website.
sudo apt-get purge xxxxxxx-185
You can also try the 180 version from PPA. I am running that my self for the moment
sudo apt-get install xxxxx-180
(xxxx-190 for that matter)

vikjon0 Wrote:You have downloaded from NVIDIA?Thanks. I ended up with trying a complete new install. Even with a successful installation of the old 18.14 NVIDIA driver, I am still not able to get Ubuntu to recognize my Panasonic PV70 screen when connected with VGA (HDMI is not an option because of overscan). Everything works fine when connecting to a regular computer screen with HDMI so I'm still a bit lost I'm afraid... Since this is probably more an Ubuntu/Nvidia problem than a ASrock/XBMC, I have created a thread here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=137784
But proposals/suggestions are highly welcome (in my opinion the XBMC is one of the most responsive forums I have ever encountered with regards to help/assistance:nod. I'm not giving up on this yet. Trying to avoid having to buy a new TV

I believe that that auto-mount disk is set to OFF in the LiveCD. I have not worked a lot with LiveCD and I am not sure how to fix that.
There is a few problems & solutions:
1) LiveCD does not mount disk(?)
I only know how to fix it if Live is installed to disk...
2) If you install from the LiveCD => the disk winXP will be overwritten
a) Install live to the disk and overwrite xp, then shrink the xbmc partition and re-install xp with dual boot.
b) Install ubuntu & xbmc manually either to a partition on the disk or to a USB stick
3) Ubuntu does not mount NTFS (?)
a) Create a shared partition and use FAT that both Linux & win can read.
Problem is that FAT is not good and can not store big files like DVD.iso.
b) It is possible to mount a NTFS disk in ubuntu but I am not sure if you need to install a package to handle it, e.g. ntfsprogs and I don't know howto do it in Live.
I am not an expert on xbmcLive, maybe it is better to ask in another thread.

XBMC LiveCD does not mount disk and Acronis Disk Director Suite10, True Image 12. Problem. Windows boot disk ( 7 or XP) - ok.
- vikjon0 - 2009-08-26 14:08
Yes, but that is different. The LiveCD is setup in a specific way and I do not know how to edit this setup. In a complete standard Linux installation this wold be a small problem.

What exactly is your setup for a remote control? I am thinking about getting the ASRock but want to make sure my Harmony universal remote will work with the Ubuntu setup that you have documented.
