NOTEWORTHY CHANGES IN THIS BUILD
QUOTE

- 'Smart Playlists' for music, see http://manual.xboxme...laylists#h236-4
- Dynamic Range Compression (DRC) for video playback

- Keymap.xml: No changes this time
- XboxMediaCenter.xml: Added .xsp (Smart Playlists) to music extensions.



Install notes from T3CH readme/nfo:
QUOTE

* DASHBOARD INSTALL
Thanks to a new app called 'Team UIX's Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0' by JbOnE, it's now extremely easy...
Edit XBMC\xboxmediacenter.xml to your liking & transfer contents of XBMC folder TO (this is VERY important) "E:\APPS\XBMC\". Rename <<RENAME_ME.xbe>> to something your bios can boot (see http://manual.xboxme...BMCAsDash#h44-2 or read your BIOS README) and transfer to your C partition. No need to fiddle with HOME tag anymore, and future upgrades you won't need to worry about this file on C.

* APPLICATION INSTALL
Edit XBMC\xboxmediacenter.xml to your liking.
Transfer _whole_ XBMC folder to your APPS folder.

* UPGRADE TIPS
If you're updating from a VERY old/bad build you may get issues. Follow these simple rules:
- Replace (FTP OVERWRITE) all files in your XBMC folder with fresh ones from your new build
- Delete old savegame/settings (from E:/TDATA/0face008)
- In some rare cases some of the database files in XBMC/Albums/*.db may need manual deletion (usually if they are very old). Note: This loses all per file settings you made with the old build!



The XBMC manual is available on The XboxMediaCenter manual has also been updated with information about the trainer feature, check it out on manual.xboxmediacenter.de.
You can add more scripts and skins yourself if desired. You can download them from http://allxboxskins.com, http://www.xbox-skins.net and http://www.xbmcscripts.com.
Keep in mind this is a CVS snapshot of the current development tree. It's not a official (stable) point release. Use only if you know what you are doing.

I have no real problem with these new builds, they keep getting better and better, but I was wondering if anyone knew when the last actual stable build was released? i.e. as in non-cvs or milestone release?

Also, are there any future plans on adding support for subtitles in MP4 files created using Nero Recode (Nero Digital)?

there's some serious issues with dvdplayer (seeking) with this build blink.gif I believe.

Just a friendly warning, remember CVS builds arent for everyone

:/ I already miss the shuffle button in the main screen

The party mode seems kinda buggy. Features are disabled until you hit stop, then you can use them and hit play again. Good idea, but needs some polishing.

Don't be such a whiner.

1. Add the shuffle button to the OSD's so it can be used anywhere. Or put it where it used to be.

2. Party mode is exactly that - it chooses random songs from your music library (you can restrict via the smart playlist system/PartyMode.xml) and plays them. You don't want or need any of the disabled items, thus the reason they're disabled.

I'm having a problem where I turned the volume all the way down with the right analog, but now I can't turn it back up. When I move the right analog up, the volume display in the top right corner shows up, but doesn't move from -60 dB. I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem, if not I'll just install it again and hope for the best, and if so, I'll reinstall anyway and make sure I don't mess with the volume smile.gif

Anyone else having trouble with DVD playback? Both streaming ripped DVDs over network and playback of discs with XBMC player is completely broken in the build for me.
