Great help from all contributors! Thanks!
In my defense, I have actually written Linux drivers in my younger years, so I am not a complete noob. Pulling the thumb drive is a good idea, albeit not an intuitive one though. Plus the first question about MBR does not say which harddrive.
Anyway FYI (to noobs and old people like myself)
During mini.iso install, take these gotchas into consideration (defaults should be fine for all else):
(1) Pick openSSH server only from package list
(2) Partition whole HD manually onto one partition (no need for swap, etc)
(3) On the last question about MBR, pick no and put in the device for your harddrive (or pull the thumb drive earlier)

having to do the install again. Another caveat: don't use xbmc as username during ubuntu install. Does anyone know the default ubuntu password for root?

Is that 'nano' supposed to be in there? (next few lines as well)

Do you need apt-get git in there?

sorry about that yes remove nano, (if you already ran it just cd to that directory and type 'sudo mv nano to custom-actions.pkla')
or recopy scripts i fixed it in the original post.
also there is no root password, you have to
to get to root, then set a password if you want one...
should do it

The problem is that when I setup ubuntu from the getgo, I used xbmc for the user name there (I suspect others will do this as well).
You may want to change the line:
sudo usermod --group audio,video,fuse,cdrom,plugdev xbmc
to include the admin group:
sudo usermod --group admin,audio,video,fuse,cdrom,plugdev xbmc
I was able to recover from this by mounting the partition manually from the install (mount /mnt /dev/sdb1) once I got to a point in the install right before partitioning the harddisk.
I editted /etc/group and added xbmc to the admin group

I am going to call it a night now. Just got back from walgreens (they had an HDMI cable for $20 - cheaper than BB for $30). Got one on the way from newegg for $6. These retail jerks like to stick it to ya on cables. So far everything seems fine except for two things:
(1) Josh When I press the power button (which activates suspend), the unit seems to suspend, except I can't get it to wake back up. Tried the power button and several other buttons on the remote. I switched the script back to power. Takes longer, but at least I dont have to get my lazy arse out of bed.
(2) FF and rewind dont work. When I get to FF or Rewind 8x, it resets my movie to the beginning. My old xbox did not do this. My movies are all ISOs I run from a NAS share. Also when FF, then hit play, it just pauses, hitting it again does not resume it. (I can hit OK, then use the nav bar to resume it)

I am going to make a post about this but FYI I just got this myself and here is what the company wrote to me about that.
Dear sir :
I am sorry , Our JC600C99-52W-BW didn't support wake up from USB .

USB? I am actually using the delivered remote, not USB. Did they confuse the issue? Or are you using a different remote? The delivered remote supports powering on from a dead shutdown. Or is the delivered remote USB internally?

Thanks for this wonderful thread and it is very helpful. I was un-registered user of this forum for a while now. This is my first post.
I have Jetway mini-top with 64G SSD and 4G of ram running XBMC. I got it up and running and no complain about it. However, with the recent development of XBMC on ATV2, i am wondering what the difference between the jetway based xbmc and atv2/1 based xbmc?
Jetway is about $300 and ATV come to about $100. This save about $200 which can be used for other xbmc setup for other TVs. I am thinking about RMA the JEtway and get ATV2 or if ATV1 is better for watching Blu-Ray files/movies.
Please suggest me with my decision.
Thanks a lot in Advance.
