Is there a way of restarting XBMC on XBMCBuntu by SSH'ing from another PC?
Everytime I start my HTPC, if my AMP and TV is not on, XBMC doesnt load and I get a black screen.
Can I kill the process, turn my TV and AMP on, then invoke XBMC which will then load?
Reason I ask, is my HTPC now does a whole load of things other than load XBMC. If another process is busy, it's inconvenient to have to reboot afresh each time.
If so, how can I do it?

Yes, on Ubuntu 11.10 and higher you can use the following command to restart XBMC:
sudo service lightdm restart
To start/stop use 'start' or 'stop' instead of restart

or you could just enter
sudo restart lightdm
this command is shorter and does exactly the same
