Haven't updated anything. Unless it does it automatically. It's always connected.
Had something like this happen the other night , we're in the middle of watching something and it just started updating. Spent hours looking for the setting (which I thought I'd set previously) but can't find it now. Can you tell me please ?
Did get the xbmx remote working on the mobile. It's good.. but is there a description anywhere of what the various mobile screen icons do ?
farcus:are you using Raspbmc or Openelec?
farcus: If Raspbmc - to disable go into (if default Confluence skin) . . .
Programs > Addons > Raspbmc Settins > System Configuration
and uncheck "Keep Raspbmc Updated"
In Openelec the procedure is almost identical.
which specific icons do you mean?
If you have the official xbmc android remote it should be pretty evident what each section of the remote does.
Is this the remote you have?
ADKM: Hi farcus.farcus:are you using Raspbmc or Openelec?
Well, I guess I should know but haven't a clue !
which specific icons do you mean?
The black & white screen with white blobs. LOL now I'm looking with a magnifying glass I can see some have descriptions
. . . My version is 13.1 stable but "Git" is unknown. Of the page of red buttons with white icons, only Remote control seemed to work. Most tell me "NullPointer Exception" and the only option is Close.
Perhaps that will change after applying the setup described in your link. What was interesting is the navigation from the phone did not bring up the OSD. I sense a remote would do the same if I knew how. Had hoped to work though the keymapping precedures but had to give up. The xbmx and rasp forums were no help. Couldn't get the remote from TradeMe to do anything and its in the drawer for now, but the Panasonic one is working great.
That link also shows more tutorials and will have a look at each. I've a lot to learn !
despite what the tutorial says - nfs shares are the best way to go but a lot of setups do not support this.
ADKM: Hi Farcus,
It is the Raspbmc version. We have a number of files which appear under VIDEOS-Files in the xbmc main horizontal menu. They exist in folders on my PC. I presume this is nfs? I recall setting them up but not sure how this ties in with DLNA. They are the same folders we can access via the TVs Vierra Tools Media-server. That first shows Twonky then explores to the folders and files but that hasn't been used this since having xbmc.
I spent some time setting up everything on the mobile as per that link. I'm positive everything is correct but "NullPointer" is still showing and nothing works, except the remote control. It's frustrating as I don't really know what to expect or what should do what. In some ways I'm tempted to leave it alone and just use what does work.
ADKM: Hi Farcus, Success! We have artwork showing now and my wifes super pleased as it's a good reminder for what the program is/about.
No trouble following instructions, it all seems to come together very well. I did end up with a Television and Televison (2) but both seem to have the same contents. And I see where some assumptions were made e.g. a folder called 'Documentary' it called 'KBS Documentary). I presume I can edit these somehow?
Are additions/deletions made on the PC echoed into xmbc, or do you need to 'Scrape Again' ? The whole lot or can you limit to a single file ?
Certainly adds a nice new dimension ! Thanks for the tip !
Not sure what 'remote shortcut' you refered to ? Is that something to do with the remote control ?
