    Acer Revo - XBMC

    Hi Guys,

    After reading tons and tons of posts for Acer Revo's, Hubby and I are going to take the plunge and buy one to use as an xbmc; however there are tons of different threads and opinons on google on how to set up xbmc onto the revo and I would imagine quite a few are out of date!

    Could someone please give me a link to to best newbie instruction manual on how to get it all up and running, or reply to this post on how to do it. I would imagine quite a few people including myself would find this useful.

    Thank you in advance. Sara x

    Spritey's thread above contains some excellent information.

    At last.... an Acer Revo thread!:w00t:

    As the others have said... some decent info there.

    My R3610 has arrived today, so will be setting it up in the next few days (duel boot Windows 7 and XBMC) so will pass on the info with a few tips once complete.

    (PS the tips will probably be advice to avoid the parts I went wrong!):p

    I've now added links to my first post, with guides on how to setup and get your Acer Revo like mine.

    Hey, Dont blame me. You have an over active gadget Genome!

    Well its here.....and I'm in linux typing this. Trying to work out how to even install XBMC.... God I hate Linux!

    I'll just strip this and put Win7 on it with duel boot straight into XBMC.

    Didnt think it was working at first. The HDMI cable I bought for it is knackered! ho hum!
