I'm using XBMC as my only dash and have it in C:\XBMC. I have the default.xbe and xboxmediacenter.xml files in C:\. I've renamed the default.xbe to xboxdash.xbe (isn't this the default boot file?) and changed the xboxmediacenter.xml file to point to these locations. I've deleted the settings from TDATA\0face008\ but it still won't boot. Any ideas?


<!-- When using XBMC as dashboard, define home directory here !-->
<!-- and move the XBMC xbe plus this xml config file to C:\ !-->
<!-- Example: <home>E:\Apps\XBMC\</home> !-->


Here is the error report

xboxdash.xbe is what the m$ dash is labelled- and what the retail bios looks for but seeing as XBMC is unsigned it won't work- you have to be using another bios and usually evoxdash.xbe is the first one

either read how to install XBMC as dash in the manual, or JayDee has provided a guide on how to install as dash in the sticky at the top of the forum

just read the bit you added from log file

QUOTE (jmarshall)
... Are you loading XBMC from AVAlaunch? If so, disable the resolution switching stuff in AVAlaunch.

Is that the log file with logging set to 0? if not set the logging level to 0 which will give more info (default is 2) in the XboxMediaCenter.xml

All in the sticky (a link to the online manual and link to a install thread by me)

I suggest you read them both...
