Re: Is XVID HD worth it?

Sadly the ones Buzz posted played but not smoothly as I'd like. they play at full speed on my system. can't help without more info. are you referring to frame drops, or just the fact that the video is 24fps (which is due to the source material). I think the confusion was that I was using DVDPlayer ...

Re: Is XVID HD worth it?

Re: Is XVID HD worth it?

Are you running with component leads? Is your Xbox outputting 720p currently? Yes on both fronts. Hooked up to a 720p HD capable TV. I'll give the samples Buzz posted a try (thanks!). I also have a BR rip which I want to try with his ffmpeg settings. I'm curious as to how smoothly it will play and ...

[SOLD] 2 x XBMC Crystal Xbox Systems + Remotes + RGB SCART

2 x Crystal XBOX systems softmodded with XBMC 3.3 Working fine and each comes with remote control/reciever, RGB SCART cable, power cable, network cable. I also include one official Xbox controller so you can enjoy the emulators right away. Bad bits: I think the DVD-ROM of both or one of them will on...

Default audio track in Video playback?

I have a bunch of Star Trek: Enterprise episodes that are dual-audio German and English. Unfortunately when I play them back it defaults to audio track 1 which is German. This means that whenever I watch an episode I have to manually access to video menu and choose audio track 2 each time. There is ...

Sometimes I have to put the TV volume on high because a movie/tv file volume is low and when turning on the Xbox at night the flubber can disturb people. Can anyone point me to a g...

Re: Script Idea: Library Database exporter

What I did in the end was to install 3.3 fresh, boot into UnleashX, rename the UserData folder, then FTP over the UserData folder form another of my 3.3 XBMC which had all the Library scanned. Then cold restart. It all worked, only oddity was that the old PM3 skin (default in 3.1) was still set. I'l...

or just copy your databases / wanted userdata from the previous installation I'm going to try the library export/import now. Just tried twice, it got to 53% first time (Free memory: 2MB), 2nd time it got to 63% (Free memory: 3MB). In each case I left it for 5 minutes at this point but it seemed "st...

Script Idea: Library Database exporter

Hi, I normally upgrading my XBMC systems by FTP and do not retain the UserData settings. I start afresh so I get all the latest improvements. This is fine but I then have to re-scan all my media back to the Library. My idea is some kind of library exporter that will put the old library data into the...
