What mean error in the log:

Code:
22:14:31 T:3676   ERROR: CRemoteControl::Connect - failed to connect
22:14:31 T:3676    INFO: CRemoteControl::Process - failed to connect to irss, will keep retrying every 5 seconds

XBMC has built in support for remote control software called IR Server Suite (IRSS). The messages just record XBMC checking to see if IR Server Suite is running. They can be ignored.

Is anyone still using IR Server Suite?

I have another error:
Code:
16:03:19 T:4076   ERROR: dll_fgets emulated function failed
What does that mean?

Thx

That's coming from https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...msvcrt.cpp line 1076. Why the function is failing I don't know, though if everything is working it's probably harmless. If you enable debug logging and pop the debug log on http://pastebin.com/ I'll have a look.

Did this ever get fixed, because i'm getting this problem with Beta 2, and it takes about 1 minute to get to the menu screen.

Taking 1 minute to get to the Home screen is unlikely to be related to either of the two errors mentioned above. The most likely cause is having zeroconf and/or airplay enabled in the settings.

So enabled AirPlay lags 1 minute on start time? New to me Wink

It may be a total coincidence but i'm using reFocus skin, and enabling the intro movie actually allows about 10 second total start time.

I'll post on the refocus part to see if they can look into it.

Although I still get about 30 seconds when I click quit too.

Isn't it the result of enabling Airplay when you don't have the Bonjour service installed? I'm sure I've seen posts saying something like this. I have no iAnythings so I can't check myself unless of course the XBMC foundation would like to buy me a 4S :-)

yeah if bonjour is not there it was slow ... wiso fixed the time needed to recognise that bonjour is missing - if i remember correct it shouldn't be an issue anymore...

also there is a toast dialog now which informs the user that bonjour is missing...

Seems my problem has been solved.

Running refocus skin, the watchlist script slows down xbmc loadup quite a bit.

So removing the <onload> tag items from home.xml and startup.xml, gives me near instant xbmc loadup.

This might help people, but it may not Smile
