Since XBMC is in a FEATUREFREEZE at the moment, I've decided to make more than one BUILD per week.

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.

if you're certain of a bug, post at bugtracker. if you're not certain, then you discuss on xbmc forums.
since that is down, what is the problem ?

when you use a mouse and then take it out, if its not on something thats selected you cant select anything with the controller. But if you connect it back up and select something before you disconnect it then you can select stuff with the controller.

Seems to have killed digital audio output playing DVDs for me unless "Output as Stereo to All Speakers" is selected, at least using DVDPlayer. Playing DVDs and .avi files with digital audio (AC3) with Mplayer is fine. But as I said, if you select "Output as Stereo . . ." then the audio plays. This wasn't necessary with any previous version - it just worked.
Anyone else having this problem before I attempt to debug it?
Wonder if it's related to this fix: 26-02-2006 fixed: [ 1454103 ] dts frames with uneven size would play garbled when passed through in both dvdplayer and mplayer.
Also, DVD Menu Overlays (26-02-2006 fixed: dvdplayer, [ 1457717 ] DVD Menu Overlays on Stills) are still broken for me. Been that way for the last couple of builds.

Same here. I cannot post on the XBMC forum as they are down. I will put in a bug report. Hope they solve it soon, as I only have digital audio connected to my Xbox.

Edit: bug report here
