For some odd reason I can't smb to my Mac Mini. I can smb to a WHS box just fine and to most of my NAS devices. Any tips for getting smb to a Mac working? I have never had this problem before.
Edit: is there any hope for getting this to work with component video?

Thanks Sam and feikenbeg for the advice. Keep up the good work
Update: I got everything up and running. Youtube hd videos work flawlessly. Again thanks for all the help

See the FAQ for component video. It works.

Yay! That's all I need to know!
When will you have a release version available? (Or is the answer to that "when it's ready, now shut up"?)
Bear in mind it's my birthday on Wednesday.

When I fixed some issues.
Important: I need someone who has this image running with network connectivity who is willing to try something out to PM me. I changed /etc/network/interfaces so that references to eth0 became eth1 and lost all network connectivity. I believe that the network-manager package is better. If anyone doesn't mind trying out a few specific instructions and seeing if networking still works, it would be strongly appreciated, as it would accelerate the development process.

Fair enough I'd rather have it right than right now so just whenever you've got it done.
Don't have the beta image, so not much point in me offering to help there. And with little kids I don't have much experimenting time (you should see their little faces if I accidentally turn off Balamory....)

Guys, what is the root pass for the image? XBMC runs as root, but i can only login as atv/atv. Thr xbmc/xbmc combo or root/xbmc doesn't work. Thanks
BTW, changing eth1 to eth0 totally worked for me.
- Sam.Nazarko - 2010-12-28 01:24
It's Ubuntu. You don't login as root. You use sudo for elevated privileges. atv:atv is the only user/pass combo you need to know.
And it doesn't work for me. Running dhclient eth1 tells me that there is no device on eth1, which makes sense, seeing as there is not two NICs in the aTV.

As someone that doesn't know the particular issue that's causing problems, would there not be merit in scripting a list of all eth devices (ifconfig piped to grep, or some quick perl regexp would do in a pinch) and then configure them all to DHCP?
I don't know - it's pretty ugly, but why shouldnt' it work? Bear in mind that I'm drunk, and so all consultancy is non-chargeable, but probably inaccurate.

It's between 3pm and 6pm in the United states? How early do you start drinking? LOL
