Write access to HFS+ drive

Write access to HFS+ drive
Hi,
I read somewhere that HFS+ doesn't play nicely with xbian without granting access to the xbian user manually to write.
I disabled journaling on the drive. Then I tried this code to make everything writable from xbian.
Code:
sudo sed -i 's/FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="dmask=0777,fmask=0777"/FS_MOUNTOPTIONS="uid=xbian,gid=xbian,dmask=0777,fmask=0777"/g' /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf
and it didn't appear to make a difference.

For reference, here is a little more detail on the context:
I am running sabnzbd and sick beard (the xbian-package versions).

user name for the pi is: xbian
external hard drive name is Elements_2.5tb
Default Base Folder: /home/xbian
incomplete folder for sabnzbd is: Downloads/incomplete/
Completed download folder: media/Elements_2.5tb/

In Sabnzbd I get PostProcessing was aborted (Cannot create final folder /media/Elements_2.5tb/TV Shows/whatevershowidownloaded720p)

Thoughts?

HFSPLUS is considered as DANGEROUS with writing and that's why normally it is mounted RO.

t is needed to accept the risk by specifically forcing it to be RW.

Code:
mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw .........

also double check that hfsplus kernel module is loaded
Code:
modprobe hfsplus
