Quote:is there anyway to map the combo keys to the MCE remote's buttons?Yes, you can send keys with irxevent (addon to lirc). You need to read up on how it works.

I believe putting the xorg options under the correct section has done it...I'll have to investigate more this weekend, but so far so good!

I assume you have tried the sames files on USB that was not visable on NAS?
I understand that it is possible to mount a network location in the linux filesyste, that could be an alternative. I am guessing that you are making a simple misstake though.

Does indeed work if you have unmuted the HDMI channel and raised volume on PCM + Master. Otherwise you are doing something else wrong.

Yeah the HDMI Channel isnt muted as you can see in this Picture. And i cant see any Files at all on on the Network even on uPnP device

If you keep going to the right with the arrow buttons you will see that there is another device that you must unmute to get it to work, at least that did it for me.
Have anyone got a fix for the overscanning? When i first installed ubuntu the screen resolution was perfect and no overscan but as soon as i installed the nvidia drivers i got a huge overscan and since im a total linux newbie ive got no clue at all what to do. Would really appreciate some help with this
Ive got a Asrock ion 330 connected to a Samsung 40S71 LCD-TV. I had the same problem in Win XP but that was easily fixed with the resize option in the nvidia config panel.

Yes, there is one more iec958 thing to unmute.
Quote:resize option in the nvidia config panel.There is a screen calibration function in xbmc that I guess is similar to resize.

Suspend and resume are working fine (although I wish you could turn off that blinking light during suspend!), but I've noticed that after re-starting XBMC after resume, it seems to have some issues (it hangs). I'll try and grab some debug logs tonight, but has anyone seen this?
EDIT: I am seeing on occasional hang, but it doesn't seem to be related to suspend/resume...I'll have to keep an eye on it to find out what's behind it.
Still would love a way to disable that blinking LED on suspend though! I looked in the suspend/resume scripts, and saw something about blinking in relation to a thinkpad, but disabling it didn't have any effect.

I've noticed something strange when resuming from suspend. the power LED doesnt come on! if i reboot it comes back on and it comes back on after the first suspend but then...nothing. I suspect that this is a bios bug but who knows. I like it that LED is too strong for a dark room like mine.
