Well it had to happen… after blogging that the XBMC build was working fine, guess what happened? Yup – has now decided for no apparent reason, to stop playing back any content at all. Now it gives me the busy icon, the screen goes black, the XServer ‘x’ cursor appears and then the XBMC splash screen appears.

It looks like playing video (and even video that played last week) is restarting XBMC.

Oh well. Back to the forum…..


I’ve been digging around on the XBMC forum and it looks like the problem lies with the .asoundrc file. I did alter this to try and get the system sounds working on the Tv. Looks like the recent Dharma RC1 update corrupted this file.


Update 2

Well I renamed the .asoundrc file, restarted the XBMC box and it all worked again! happy happy happy!
