Re: XBMC freezes at startup (splash screen)

That is correct, it is a side effect - practically it disabled the HLT instruction that makes the CPU go idle and what it might do is increase the heat dissipation so keep an eye on that as well as good ventilation.

Re: XBMC freezes at startup (splash screen)

The Q:\ drive you see in File Manager, the top of your logs and through the FTP is always a mapping to the currently running XBMC4Xbox, so you can use that to get to UserData as well as getting access to the logs. 13:07:02 M: 56758272 NOTICE: Starting XBMC4Xbox 3.5.3-r33027 (SVN:33027, compiler 1310...

Re: XMBC4XBOX heavily distorted / flicker

Ok, by your description it seems to be related to newer versions of XBMC4Xbox. Do you have any other TV that works with XBMC4Xbox to run the XBMC4Xbox Installer plugin from my signature and use it to install a "Clean" latest version? Just thinking there might be some settings that are causing this. ...

You could try first by resetting XBMC4Xbox settings (hold both thumbsticks down when starting XBMC4Xbox)

If you're into modding you could look around the forums into a fan modding, usually involving a case mod as well to externalize the fan so you can use a bigger but quieter fan: http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=218 I've got one on my blog as well from a few years ago but I'm a b...

You can read more on HLT CPU instruction here and you can Google more to see for any side effects on disabling it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HLT_(x86_instruction) It is the only one we have at the moment unfortunatelly, I think if your box is properly cooled it will be fine. You should monitor t...

Well done! Btw, I haven't mentioned a program plugin I wrote a while ago that clears TBN cache for you - should be available through the addons installer coming with latest versions of XBMC4Xbox (see Thumbnails). http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/addons/

I haven't tried your script just yet, but I believe os.listdir() returns entries only in the specified path, I believe you want os.walk() see its documentation and an example below: https://docs.python.org/release/2.7.13/library/os.html?highlight=os.walk#os.walk As to the error, you can see details ...

Not a good idea to cross threads for anyone coming later to read this, but my skin knowledge is quite limited - I'm not sure what transitions you mean, probably best when asking questions about things you tried is to paste in a bit of code of what you actually tried, so others can review.

Re: Xbox Games section disappears when not connected to the

I assume you changed the file, uploaded it, restarted XBMC4Xbox or rebooted Xbox, checked the change is up there and then tried it.

Did you check Settings > System > Autorun media?
