Until recently I had an option to change "Video output" which options such as HDMI, VGA and Default. This option was in additional to (and situated just above) the "Video Mode" (that has Full Screen #1, Windowed).. I re-installed XBMC today and it seems this option is not there any more.. I did nothing to get it there last time, and the option was very useful as it allowed me to switch between my TV (HDMI) and Projector (VGA) without the need to disconnect, etc.. I cant for the life of me add the 2 outputs in such a manner that I can easily switch between them.. Any suggestions as to how to get this option back?

Im running Xbmcbuntu Beta 13 (currently on Beta 4).. Before I had XBMC from the nightly repo, but I guess as the Beta Repo was rebuild today its not like the nightly has additional options.. (Or do they?)..

I cant not find any mentions of this option on the XBMC Wiki, which makes it hard to work out how to get it back..

Correction.. The menu option is called "Monitor", and was indeed hidden on the latest beta, and only came to light when I installed the nightly build.. How weird is that.. Perhaps its a feature coming up in XBMC 14 (as the nightly build is advertised as XBMC 14)..?

Anyway, its all sorted now, and I am able to select between the various outputs. Smile

The latest nightly shows as 13.0 RC1

14.0 alpha 1 is the master branch not the Gotham branch.

There's very little difference between the two at the moment though...
