Re: Where is everyone?

Good, Dom has a chipped machine. Throw in a HDD and your away. BuZzard, want to become a legend, give me a call aye. I could do with some stress relief throwing abuse at my favorite Pommy.

Re: Hard drive mod assistance - several questions.

927Gb on each drive, (F and G), is what you will get if you have reclustered the drives correctly. No more.

Re: 2TB upgrade - Freezes when loading apps, really slow boo

My adapters all resemble the one GoTeamScotch linked to and I have never used other than the stock IDE cable with Seagate HDDs. Make sure your booting app is on either your C or E drive, never the F or G drive. Booting times using modchipped machines with EvoxDash and 2TB satas is usually around 12 ...

Re: Ideas for modern-day applications of XBMC4XBOX?

Sometimes you need to look outside the square with the Xbox. :D How about using different versions of XBMC, each set up a different way to do what you want it to do. From the home page of the default booting XBMC, have each of the "selection titles" boot another XBMC set up to do your different task...

Video Jukebox....... Grab a suitable YouTube downloader tool for your PC and dump the content on the Xbox HDD. You can have all of it or a small portion of it in a "startup playlist" for startup for when you just want to hit the start button on the Xbox to get it playing through all your songs or ca...

Re: XBOX 2TB SATA Upgrade Tutorial

If you are getting "invalid path" you may not have G drive selected in the Ind bios settings maybe?. Does the G drive show up in the EvoxDash or another app?. Ideally if you have another HDD with both F and G drive, ( doesn't matter what sized drives F and G are on it), as long as it is unlocked, th...

Re: XBOX 2TB SATA Upgrade Tutorial

So .. Here's where I'm at now.. G drive shows nothing in XBMC, and when I FTP into it, only a few drives show and G is missing. However, with the slayers disc in, both F and G show as 995 GB available - AND G is available when I FTP into the Xbox when slayers running. So this is what I did.. 1) I c...

Re: Can't delete files or folders?

Yep, you will need to use XbPt to alter the cluster size but before you re-cluster, try loading a few things on the drive just to test everything is looking OK. It will load and allow you to check things prior to re-clustering infact the drive will work perfectly until you get over 127GB. Once you c...

Re: Can't delete files or folders?

Try another IDE cable. I still use Slayers 2.7 to build a HDD from scratched or format a single drive. Have you tried using Avalaunch to delete the effected files?. Can you manually rename the effected files?.

Re: Can't delete files or folders?

Have you checked the network status in the XBMC info?. Have you tried another net cable?. I've had this issue myself a long time ago and it turned out to be a cable issue or the network itself. Maybe I reset the network. I can't really remember exactly what i did.

I spoke to the BuZzard the other day and he was somewhat upset I had not updated this post so this update is inspired by the whinging pommy bastard. :D I figure if he is good enough to keep our forum financial, the least I can do is add something here plus it might actually keep him quite for a whil...

Re: Xbox frag after sitting 5 months

Fragging......What is it doing LED warning wise. The patterns that the machine sends out helps with diagnosing the problem. Before ripping apart the machine, always check that the AVI cable is fully plugged into the machine by the way. Most bioses will detect this plug not being fully inserted and s...

@ NeMesiS...

Once the cable is removed from the connector, turn the connector around, place you...

Re: [Compatibility] Wireless Keypad w/ Mini Keyboard

Nice work Dom. Good to see I'm not the only one that buys devices to "try" a theory. 2.4GHz is far better than the short range offered by BlueTooth anyway. BlueTooth version 2 and 3 only offer 10 meters range at best, BlueTooth version 4 has this extended out to 20 meters which is better but I still...

Re: How do I change the wallpaper?

Just as a side note, you can select a skin like confluence, ( not the lite version) or PMIIIHD and both these skins allow a folder of multiple pictures to use as your background rather than just one image. To give an example with PMIIIHD go to Skins/settings and you will find a setting backgrounds. ...

Re: Removing rust from OG XB metal shielding

I just lightly sand the rust, it is only surface rust after all, and any pits left in the metal will only help giving the paint something to bind to anyway. Once you have got rid of most of the rust, blow it off, give it a quick clean with alcohol. Let it dry and as always when painting with spray p...
