Regarding MySQL performance.
Try enabling QueryCache. I've allocated 10mb of memory for queryCache and am getting over 80% hit rate on the queries. Made a slight difference for me. Every little bit helps.

Slightly off topic, but for those running the Eden nightlies, configure your advancedsettings.xml to enable dirtyregion processing. You can add the following to your advancesettings.xml:
You'd be amazed how much difference this setting makes. Makes the UI really snappy on an ATOM.

Here you go, something like this aught to work:
Set the number of backups you want (defaut 3)
Set the databases you want (default XBMC_Video and XBMC_Music)
Set the backup path (default is execution directory +backup/)
Modify the backup timestamp if you want it, default is YYMMDD
When it dumps you should end up with something like this: XBMC_Video.111004.00.sql (00 is the newest, 02 the oldest)
Script automatically deletes the oldest backup.
Also, make sure you've setup your my.cnf, that's how the dumper works, or add in the -U -P switches to the mysqldump command.
Can't guarantee this will work, I've ripped it out of a larger backup script I've written to dump and backup over rsync several dozen postgres databases, but the foundation is there anyways.

OMG thank you! I remember reading about dirty regions on the xbmc news page a while ago, but I had forgotten about it. I enabled it last night and noticed an improvement in video stuttering. I used to get a video stutter about once every 30-60 seconds when watching a movie.
Is Dharma for OSX compatible with Dharma for Windows ? - Erwin - 2011-10-13 16:10
My setup is as follows:
Can I add a mac with latest stable xbmc for osx release to update and play from the same video library ?

I'm having problems getting this to work.
I had to create the xbmc_video database my self becouse xbmc was unabled to do it.
And that still gave some problems.
But now xbmc dos't post data ind the database, when scanning my movie/serie folders.
And when it's scanning my music folder I get this errors ind the log
I'm running XBMC 10.1 on a windows 7
And mysq 5.5 on a windows 2008r2 server.
My music is shared on the same server and my movies/series are shared from synology NAS box
Hop someone can help

I first had a dns_resolve issue but thats solved.
Everything works ok, but i have troubles when i leave TV Shows
i can go in and out of the movies and music, but when i leave the TV shows xbmc hangs.
i only see the backdrop and nothing else

Problem when Creating a new Database - daninino - 2011-10-25 17:11
Using the Nightly from 24/10
It won't create the tables when I start XBMC see log file. Not sure what I could have donw differently followed the guide.
It's going crazy with:
ERROR: Unable to open database: xbmc_video45 (Unknown database 'xbmc_video45')
Pastebin log: http://pastebin.com/eNbRa22g

Apperently using the official version, and not a nightly, it worked without a problem. So something is up with the nightly I used

Seeing as though the synchronization feature is a common desire among us here, and the solution on the famous article on Lifehacker seems to not be complete and elude even some of us knowledgeable in SQL, operating systems, XML and networking, I've taken the information on the famous article and created an XBMC wiki page to help us through.
The original article was written more than a year ago (back in September 2010) and people still try to use it as is. Some things have changed since then and now as an XBMC wiki article we can all contribute and fix any errors that may exist. Let's help fix it.
