RE: Official XBian 1.0 Alpha 5 thread
Hi
i've update my Xbian to Alpha 5 but i'm still missing the option
to enable 'both' audio output (HDMI + analog) in parlallel mode.

This issue was discussed here: https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/search?q=172
and i thought it is implemented in Alpha 5. Am i wrong?

What shall i do to get this feature?Huh

My system info:
Xbian 1.05a
XBMC 12.0 Git:20130127-fb595f2 (Compiled: Jan 30 2013)
Kernel3.6.11
Firmware:1.2

It isn't. If you know how to do it, update XBMC + firmware + kernel from the beta 1 branch on git. Or else wait for Beta 1.

That sounds like my issue indeed. Faces are all in blue, so it makes sense that red and blue are swapped.

Can I do anything with this github thread myself?

RE: Official XBian 1.0 Alpha 5 thread
It seems that it's a bug in the hdmi_ignore_hotplug setting. So maybe removing it from your config.txt

try to force 16:9 aspect ratio on your screen rather than auto mode. most of the TV's has this auto option enabled
also make sure you have
Code:
disable_overscan=1
in
/boot/config.txt

that's fixed it, thanks Smile

Since alpha5 only low resolution posters
Hey there,

I did a fresh install today with xbian alpha 5. However, the poster art is only downloaded in a low resolution and looks, well... suboptimal to say at least.

First I thought it might be a xbian problem, but a quick check with openelec (OpenELEC-RPi.arm-2.99.3) from 21.02.13, revealed the very same problem. So I guess it is xbmc related.

Any advice? :-)

Cheers,
mr.foo

I think you can set the prefered resolution in the Artwork Downloader addon, so browse to the the addon menu and check the configuration of it.
You could also check the "advancedsettings.xml" in your home directory and try to increase the values for thumb files.

RE: Official XBian 1.0 Alpha 5 thread
All working well! I'm having a problem with airplay though, can play videos over airplay but not music. I can choose Xbian from the device but nothing happens in Xbian.

This previously worked for me in alpha4.

I have the same problem and have no add-on called 'Artwork Downloader'.

Xbian Alpha 5 no so smooth
Good evening. I've installed Xbian Alpha 5 and, in my opinion, XBMC is not as smooth as the one I had (starting from Raspbian, following the Readmi instrucitions and updating to the last kernel, fimware and XBMC according to https://github.com/xbianonpi/ ) with the same config.txt, plugins and XBMC configuration. Navigation across the menus is not so fluid.
Has anybody else experienced the same behaviour?
Thank you and regards

RE: Xbian Alpha 5 no so smooth
It's not clear to me what you exactly did? Installing only XBian or Raspbian?

Alpha 5 Won't Boot
I've just downloaded Alpha 5 (twice) and I can't get it to boot. The model B RPi is brand new, and I've had Raspbian booting off it. If I remove all peripherals (so it's just SD and power), I get the same result - red LED on, green LED blinks once, then stays off.

I'm using a high quality power supply rated at 5.25V, 2A: this one, in fact; https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi-accessories/5v-2A-modmypi-raspberry-pi-power-supply

I've not modified anything about it - it's only been out of the box an hour. I'm trying to use it with HDMI/keyboard/WiFi attached, but as I say, it doesn't seem to boot even with no other devices attached.

Any assistance would be very helpful,
Dan

RE: Xbian Alpha 5 no so smooth
i installed Xbian Alpha 5 from the image I downloaded here, and I feel XBMC is not as smooth as the old one (installed from Raspian, updating, etc)
