Yeah there's the search box for the XBMC homepages on top, but there's a search link below that for the wiki. It is slightly confusing.

Yeah that searchbar is broken and will be replaced soon, so for now you need to click the search link and do a search from there (and not from the searchbar), see:

Well XBMC doesn't work perfectly on 64-bit since it has so many third-party dependencies that doesn't work perfectly on 64-bit, I think that is a downside if you want to use XBMC. Anyway that discussion does not belong here.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Well believe it or not, XBMC does not drive my choice of Linux.

I've run Debian exclusively on all my machines for 12 years, and I am not going back to 32bit at this point. So I guess I'll wait on XBMC.

This discussion is about XBMC and what it is able to run on.

it will run fine in 99% of the cases. the main issue is with sdl and threads. if the os hands you a 64bit thread id, you're effed. that should not happen too often

This discussion is about "Time-Shifting?" as that is the topic you picked when you started this thread.
Quantumstate Wrote:Seems to me like innovation in Myth has stalled. 0.22 looks almost like 0.21 and I think it's because of the continuous in-fighting amongst devs there. The Strong devs don't want to hear to any improvements, and I don't think 0.22 will ever become stable.

Is there any will to add time-shift recording capability to XBMC? Or maybe port XBMC as a frontend to Myth?

How is it that I can not ask the questions that I have? Can a discussion not even slightly evolve as answers emerge? What is a forum for, anyway?

You are being entirely too sensitive, Gamester17. You are acting like the Myth devs. Has your power gone to your head? I am not even considering XBMC is this is how things are.

You do not have a splendid attitude yourself. At least I am contributing.
