I have absolutely no problems with HDMI.
Sound works, video works.

Icefeldt Wrote:I have absolutely no problems with HDMI.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.

thx for the explanation.

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...)

This works at in terminal but the machine still appears on my network as XBMCLive. Is there another fix? Edit SMB.conf perhaps?
DocEvil Wrote:a simple Question, i tried to use Transmission. The webui works fine, even from remote computer outside my personal network. but how i can add torrents without the information that they have no permission to write any data at the folders ?
Is this fixed? Not had time to try but I have 5 torrents to add and seed. I hope it works!
EDIT: Not working, checked I had opened port but Trans reports Error: Permission denied /home/xbmc/Downloads/Heroes.S04E17.avi (I had pointed both SAB and Torrent to Downloads dir)
fidoboy Wrote:Right now i've noticed another problem; i'm using app launcher in XBMC to execute chrome browser it works fine, but if i play a flash video in chrome, then when i close it and back to XBMC i've no sound when trying to play music. I get 'failed to open audio device' message. It happens the same if i play a 2.0 movie but it works fine using passthrough in 5.1 AC3 movies. Can anyone confirm this issue? why the audio device is not available for XBMC after using it with another app? may be i need any aditional command in my launcher script after chrome closes?
Fidoboy, could you PLEASE point me to some reasonably-idiot-proof instructions how to add a script for Chrome (or Firefox)... I won't ask Ernham to add it as its too much and so few people will want it but I'd like to try it!
furii Wrote: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.
errrr wait until its NOT a RC and has been released and then do
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Why? It has spoiled this thread.. some Mod should just remove post #1 :mad:

Methanoid, you must first install Chrome in your XBMC live, use this:
then download the app launcher plugin for XBMC and launch Chrome using the plugin.

the current update you posted on your website http://www.xbmcfreak.nl/en/ has the latest release of alaska, but the version of xbmc is to old for it to work correctly. I will upgrade xbmc to svn myself, just pointing it out for you and others that are going to try it.
- fidoboy - 2010-01-27 01:27
Thanks matsui, i've already noticed that point and i've done an SVN upgrade to use the Alaska final release. All is working fine... But i still have two problems, i can't get HDMI sound and also after launching Chrome or Firefox from XBMC i can't get sound working again and i must reboot the machine...

Hello everybody. This LiveCD is fantastic, it works perfectly, I just installed on my ION based HTPC and goes great.
I am new on Linux and I have some questions:
1. How can I take screenshoots on this LiveCD?
2. Is possible to monitorize the CPU, GPU and disk temperatures? Something like cacti.
3. How can I configure the audio? It works with ALSA or PulseAudio?
4. What more software I have installed? I just try Transmission.
Thanks for all your work and time.
