Just got mine today - does the CPU/GPU temperature stuff work? I'm running the latest XBMCFreak 10.5 distro.

Other than that, everything seems froggy!


- ClayM - 2010-08-06 05:23

Also - any guides to get usb/ir on/off working?

Here's how I got wake from suspend over USB working:

And this has some instructions for temperatures (you'll need Google Translate):

Yes it works! (I use Xbmcfreak LiveCD 10.08 svn32416)

Add to /etc/modules the next line if not exist:
coretemp

Update or create the advancedsettingsl.xml:
~/.xbmc/userdata/advancedsettings.xml Prepared for display max from 4 temperatures that give sensors:

After all changes restart all system or if you want:

modprobe coretemp
service xbmc-live stop; sleep 2; service xbmc-live start

If you’re using one of my latest xbmcfreak livecd’s together with a Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11 and sound is missing, this is what you can try to do:

Open the following file

/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Add a additional line (at the end) with the following content.

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=0 probe_mask=0xffff,0xfff2

A reboot is required to enable the new sound settings.

there seems to be a bug with IR wakeup from standby in latest kernels - I had to downgrade to 2.6.32-22 to get it to work. There's more info in this thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=76944

had to reinstall video and audio drivers after the downgrade, but it's running pretty solid right now...


Resolution after driver update? - Diggy - 2010-08-12 02:57

I'm confused by whats going on with my zbox hd-id11.

I installed xbmc Live 9.11 and (after updating BIOS) proceeded to install the nvidia drivers as per cron0's guide, substituting the 256.35 drivers. Rebooted, but when it loaded back up, the highest resolution I can get is still just 640x480 fullscreen as reported by the system menu. Surely thats not right.

Any ideas, or anyone with the same issue? Any advice to help me get this project off the ground?

NOTE: I did not use xbmcfreak's repack, just the official live iso.

Hi fellow xbmc members,

I have a question considering these htpc barebones,
if you put in 2GB's of RAM in a Zotac like this,
will it play full m2ts bluray streams (35-45Mbps) whithout any problem?

I'm able to play my bluray stream with 1gb of ram just fine - though it's about 25-30mbps most of the time, don't have any others to test currently.

I'm pretty sure RAM is not the limiting factor for these, anything 512mb and over will do just fine

Hi All,

As I am seriously considering buying one of these I have but one concern - the fan noise ....
I read the whole thread and looked as various reviews - but I am not quite certain I got the correct picture: How bad is the fan noise with the latest BIOS version and while playing HD media ?

I hope that you [now fellow] XBMC members can give me your unbiased first hand feedback here :-)

FYI I currently have a media tank, but am not satisfied with it so I am looking at a nettop that can do XBMC .....

Thanks,
StoneT

personally, I can't hear it at all, though I sit 8-10 feet from it while watching movies. However, the original xbox and xbox 360 did not bother me that much either even though they are considered to be pretty loud in comparison.

it's definitely going to be louder than PCH units as those have no fans, but whether it's a noticeable difference and whether it bothers you enough to keep away from zbox is moot point

With the newest BIOS -- it is as quiet as it is going to be - which ends up being pretty good...
I would recommend it - based on the newest BIOS.

I can't hear the fan at all from my couch. The only thing I hear (rarely) is the HDD. And if you use a SSD the box is quite enough, considering the price.

Hi guys,

Your feedback is much appreciated - I have now ordered a Zbox and am on my way to become the latest XBMC user Big Grin

If anyone has any hot tips on any pitfalls getting this to work (I will be using Windows 7 as the OS and an Emprex 3009 RF remote) I would be grateful to know Wink

CheerZ,
StoneT
