Thanks, i will try this one Smile
Just to be sure, do i have to have xbmc/xbmc as user/pass on this one too?
I read something earlier about you working on some kind of script for that Smile

During the very first boot a runonce script is executed. The runonce script will change all configuration files. After the runonce has been executed it will be removed from the system. Conclusion is that the xbmc user is no longer hardcoded. Installing xbmc live on your harddrive under a different user won't be a problem.

Ernham,
is Asrock remote working under V9? I assume you are using 330HT as a test machine, right?

Asrock remote doesn't work since the driver's quality is very bad. This doesn't allow me to package it within a livecd. Only MS compatible remotes are supported.

Thank you, your work is appreciated Smile

erhnam, just wanted to add another thank you for the work you've put into this. Finally came up with the cash to get my system to replace my aging hardware also. Zotac IONITX-A-U, 2TB HD, 4Gb RAM. But alas, not a lot of time to dig through the forums and do my research like I used to, so I think this will be a god send to justify my purchase to my significant other, and get things up a running quickly.

erhnam, is there any way to get a release using an older version of the nvidia drivers (185), as it seems that there are a lot of issues in the 190 and 195 releases, specifically around multichannel audio.

Wishful thinking would be to be able to select the version of the drivers to install, but I am aware that it is most likely not an easy thing to do.

Worst case scenario, any advice on changing v8/v9 to rollback to 185?

Yep follow this manual: http://www.xbmcfreak.nl/en/xbmc-nvidia-ion/nvidia-1851814-installeren-op-xbmc-904/

First @erhnam - thanks for the great work and great communication on the forums!

I agree with McArthurC, there is a consistent/justified understanding that v185 is the best set of drivers to use, particularly with the ION, where many use the HDMI audio.

If the v185 version isn't incorporated into the main .ISO, it would be great if you could offer one .ISO that utilizes the v185.

Unless you've figured out a way to get v195 working with HDMI and without any of the other minor quirks others have run into?

i'm wondering if anyone knows how to upgrade from sabnzbd+ 0.4.12 to the 0.5 release candidate. i thought replacing sabnzbdplus in /usr/bin/ and replacing the /interface/ and /sabnzbd/ folders in /usr/share/sabnzbdplus/ would do the trick, but no luck.

I have absolutely no problems with HDMI.

Sound works, video works.

(Zotac ION F Board)
The issue I am having is not with basic sound or video ... both do work, the problem is when you are trying to play a video with multichannel sound, such as AAC. Since my receiver doesn't handle AAC (I don't think many do), it does not get the proper channels and there I only hear the sound coming out of the left/right speakers ... no centre = no speech!!

If I downmix to Stereo, of course I hear everything, but then it isn't surround sound.

The thread here (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=59877) points to a solution to this problem where you are remapping channels on the fly, however the 190 and 195 drivers have broken this solution (as mentioned in the thread).

I hope that clears up the source of my request. If I had only AC3 encoded videos, this would be a non issue, as they are playing perfectly with v8 through hdmi.

ah okay.
thx for the explanation.


- RKMFlorida - 2010-01-26 21:23

I have the same issue as MCARTHURC; the problem is not with HDMI on downmix, but there are certain files that do not play. This requires the workaround and the v185 release, no matter which ZOTAC ION board you're using, from what I understand.

As far as i know if you use 185 version of nVidia drivers you can't have full VDPAU in XBMC (read at bottom of this post: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=33327) So the question is why/how is HDMI sound working for Icefeldt?? What nVidia drivers are you using? can you share your .asoundrc? do you have any tweaks in your XBMC Live?

I've no sound at all using HDMI, no stereo, no multichannel... nothing (i'm using v8 already because i can't see interesting new features in v9...)
