In that case, shouldn't you adjust the volume on the amps so you can use the same offsets in XBMC?

I have no idea why im struggling with this.... have read through all 46 pages of this and others and for some reason I cant get XBMC to populate to a database.

Im on latest version of XBMC & am using mysql 64bit.
Windows 7 ultimate 64

Possible fixes and configs I have tried already are as follows.

Have disabled firewall completely so no issue there.
Have created a user xbmc with all permissions -p xbmc
Have granted root all permissions -p xbmc
Have checked mysql my.ini and its set to latin1 (or whatever the fix was?)

I am using the following xml

<advancedsettings>
<videodatabase>
<type>mysql</type>
<host>localhost</host> - have tried both ip of server and localhost
<port>3306</port>
<user>xbmc</user> - have tried both root and xbmc
<pass>xbmc</pass>
<name>xbmc_video</name> - have tried using a different name
</videodatabase>
</advancedsettings>

I also dont get any errors from xbmc on my log

But after that I can go into that same Thumbnails folder via a FTP client and copy or create a file/folder and it works. It will appear in the Thumbnail folder on my server. It all seems to work with my manual tests. It just seems whatever XBMC does to write the thumb is the only part that's not working.

Hi, I am trying to configure XBMC to work with mySQL. I like the concept of a centralized database and think that charrua and other guys did a great job by introducing this concept.
In my case the installation went rather well (SVN:33330, compiler 1600). The problems appeared when XBMC started scanning media. I got a bunch of errors like: "Texture manager unable to load file", "CDVDDemuxFFmpeg::Open - error reading from input stream", "CDVDAudio::AddPackets - failed to add leftover bytes to render". In fact XBMC freezes and I cannot use it. My knowledge on this subject is very limited, so I searched the forum and google but could not find an answer or a suggestion on how to address these errors. Could you please give a direction? Thanks Alex

While reading through all those pages you may have missed the part of the 2nd post where it states:
charrua Wrote:There is a new feature already implemented in XBMC(since svn r28142) that lets you use a central MySQL database for all your clients.

You are using svn r26017...

Thanks, but all the kudos goes to firnsy for introducing and developing the MySQL features for XBMC and to the rest of the developers for this great piece of software that XBMC is, I just try to share some of my limited knowledge as a XBMC user here.

Probably the errors are not related to MySQL. Did you try to install an older version of XBMC?


- robkeogh - 2010-09-02 18:24

OMG Howd I miss that! presumed when i downloaded off the official site i would get the latest build

Will get the more recent one now and hopefully that will be sorted.. Ta Very much


- albaranov - 2010-09-02 18:32

Charrua,
Sorry for not mentioning firnsy. Your name is everywhere in this thread so I was under impression that... whatever. Thanks for replying.
Quote: Did you try to install an older version of XBMC?

No, I have not tried as I did not assume that it could be the reason. Normally you read: install the latest version because the old bugs have been fixed. Which version do you recommend? Thanks, Alex

albaranov Wrote:Normally you read: install the latest version because the old bugs have been fixed. Which version do you recommend? Thanks, Alex

Yes, you're right. But sometimes the latest bleeding edge svn versions introduce new bugs (consider that they are compiled on a nightly basis).
Having said that, I'm using the latest version(xbmc-r33324-Dharma_beta1.exe) found at http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/win32/
and it's working fine, but just to be shure you could try an older version to see if you still have the problem that you described (remember that you need at least r28142). Also it would be useful if you could post a debug log to see what is actually happening.[url=http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/win32/][/url]

Charrua,

Thanks for trying to help me. I'm using the version SVN:33330, compiler 1600. I guess it should not be a problem. I have the log file available - I do not see the attach button... Alex

No problem. Paste the log to http://pastebin.com/ and then post the link here.


- albaranov - 2010-09-02 20:52

Charrua,

It is here
http://pastebin.com/4paNsfms

Just in case.
Linux PC: MySQL and all media files are there.
Win7 Master PC: XBMC, all lab work is there, updates, corrections, etc.
Win7 Liv. Room PC: XBMC and connected to the home theater.

Thanks for your time again!
Alex
P.S. Will try xbmc-r33324-Dharma_beta1 tonight.

You're welcome. Are you able to access the files in the Linux server from the Win7 machines from explorer? I'm not shure, but looking at your log it seems more like a file access problem than a database one.

Definitely yes. While in Win7 I have full rights to all files on the Linux machine. Have not yet tried the other Win7 machine. It was my first test with mySQL yesterday.
Is there any troubleshooting strategy that I can follow? I do not feel comfortable about bothering you and other gurus by asking all these stupid questions. Thanks, Alex
P.S. Still will appreciate every piece of a advice from you smart guys. I wish I could develop something similar.

Hi again,

I just installed xbmc-r33324-Dharma_beta1.exe. The log file looks awful - overcrowded with errors. Now it also says that the database is newer than expected - no access to it. I'm lost. Any help, please! Alex

Again, a full log file in debug mode with the new errors will be welcomed.
