CHANGELOG since the May 01st 2009 Svn Rev19856 build:
QUOTE

2009-05-05 19947 [XBOX] Merged: Linuxport revisions 19875,19883,19916,19930,19934,19939
2009-05-03 19909 [XBOX] changed: Use to old way to replace the slashes like we did before
2009-05-03 19905 [XBOX] fixed: Some visualisations crashed (and possibly other zip:// stuff too) as our ValidatePath/CURL screwed up the URLs passed to it.
2009-05-02 19888 [XBOX] merged: trunk r19804 - Sync video/music db with linuxport. Now one should also be able to fully exchange dbs between sdl and xbox builds smile.gif
2009-05-02 19887 [XBOX] fixed: Slow music scan / enabled music db transactions like we did for Linuxport.

Merge Log:
19939: fixed: CEventServer wasn't making sure thread was stopped before deleting the CThread object. changed: simplified CEventServer thread usage by inheriting CThread instead
19934: fixed: CBackgroundPicLoader and CMusicInfoScraper wasn't stopping thread on destructor. anything overloading CThread::Process/On...() must stop it's builtin thread in it's own destructor, as it could be using member variables that get's destroyed before the CThread
19930: fixed: ticket #6493 - cleanonupdate in video library doesn't clean TV eps
19916: fixed #6478 Cbr/Cbz comic files start in slideshow (thanks jmarshall)
19883: added: log output of scraper functions. very useful until we have a proper scraper development tool
19875: updated: Hungarian translation #6482, based on English r19506 (thanks to olympia)



INSTALL NOTES from T3CH readme/nfo:
QUOTE

* APPLICATION INSTALL
- Fresh Install: Transfer _whole_ XBMC folder to your APPS folder (or where you want it).
- Upgrade: Backup the XBMC\UserData folder. Transfer whole XBMC folder to Xbox. Overwrite UserData folder with your backed up copy.

* DASHBOARD INSTALL (SOFTMODS)
ARE NOT COVERED IN THIS README, SEE http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=406656

* DASHBOARD INSTALL
- Option 1. Team XBMC's shortcut tool.
It's included in the _tools folder as <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>> + <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.cfg>>.
Instructions here: http://xbmc.org/wiki...=As_a_Dashboard (Option 1).
Rename the <<SHORTCUT by TEAM XBMC.xbe>>+.cfg & also EDIT the .cfg so it matches your config.
See APPLICATION INSTALL above.
- Option 2. Thanks to an app called 'Team UIX's Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0' by JbOnE, it's now easy...
Transfer contents of XBMC folder (this is VERY important since the tool is hardcoded) TO "E:\APPS\XBMC\". Rename <<SHORTCUT by TEAM UIX.xbe>> to something your bios can boot (see http://xbmc.org/wiki...=As_a_Dashboard or read your BIOS README) and transfer to location your mod solution boots. No need to fiddle with HOME tag anymore, and future upgrades you need not to worry about this file (unless you move XBMC).

* AN INTRODUCTION TO PLUGINS
XBMC has a system for Media plugins to allow browsing of remote content (Internet) using the regular filesystem approach.
Plugins are put inside >>XBMC/plugins/<video/music/pictures>/<< (I already do this for the one/s I include), furthermore they also need to be installed as a source in (video/music/pictures).
You do this install by using the contextmenu choice >>Add New Source<< while in ROOT list and then choosing ***Plugins as source.
Then you highlight (not select) the folder of the plugin you want to install. It will be saved inside sources.xml for future.

* WIN32 PC ENVIRONMENT INSTRUCTIONS (WIN32 FOLDER)
Good to know, this requires DirectX9 Runtimes to be installed. Also this doesn't work with all graphics cards.
You need to:
- Copy XBMC_PC.exe & 'run_me_first.bat' from win32 to XBMC folder
- Run 'run_me_first.bat'
- Run XBMC_PC.exe

* 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 settings (from UserData/guisettings.xml)
- In some rare cases some of the database files in UserData/Database/*.db may need manual deletion (usually if they are very old). Note: This loses all per file settings you made with the old build!

Pardon me if I missed something, but this build isn't listed on the T3CH website. The newest build on there is the 5/1/09 build, but no sign of the 5/9/09 build.

it appears to be there for me under the "stable release" heading.

latest SVN build does still show the 5/1 build...

I don't think this build supports x264 streams for the latest iPlayer either :-(

Thanks for the new release.

Is there a Hulu stream plugin that will work for this release? I googled my heart out and could only find two differently sized plugins, both which return with python script errors when you try to use them in XBMC. Thanks in advance!

IMDB scraper is gone, probably for good, from the official xbmc deliverables. The replacement Film scrapers are working and have for at least two versions prior to this.

I don't think film info has ever been removed, xbmc just switched to scraping different sites from whom they had permission to do so.

Scrapers get their data directly from the website, if the site changes their layout etc. the scraper will stop working.

I was wondering if there was a way to edit XBMC to go into 16/9 wide screen mode rather than Zoom when I push select on my remote controller

What happens is I have to push the button 3 or 4 times to get into that mode and was wondering if there was a way for me to edit or setting option so that I only have to push it once

Just a little annoyance I would like to correct myself


Thanks

If you go into the in-video menu (push start, then video settings), set it on 16/9 and select "save as default for all movies". Every time you play a video it will start in 16/9 mode.
