What skin do you already have?

If it's confluence then go to settings and it's in there. Mine shows up on the PC to, under network locations (windows7)

192.168.1.90

not 190

Also, try signing on to your router and look at 'attached devices' or something

EDIT: Just noticed the above. It's not connected to network?? Use a LAN cable and plug in to the back of your router. Forget wireless if that's what your trying to do for now

Mine is also the Live version, have a look under all of the settings, or change the Skin to the one above, can't remember the name atm

probably 192.168.1.1 or [url]www.routerlogin.com[/url] then username/password (maybe written on the base of the router)

Might sound daft but is the network cable connected?

Original Poster

network cable is in, tried using a crossover cable straight into the laptop but no joy

I think it might have something to do with the setup, hubby is just trying to reinstall it all now with the network cable plugged into the router! fingers crossed!!!

We wait with baited breath for the 7 minute install to complete :-D

My install took about three days!!!

Was a right faff, no network issues really though.........

The install is the easy part...the media configuration and shared drives...now that was days of pain!!

the disk keeps on stopping at 98% now and coming up with a list of options! select finish installation and it just starts again? when will it end! lol

What are the options? Does it give you time to see them?

Are you using the revo ion version of XBMC Live?

Mine was perfect, except one of the TV shows wouldn't show a picture, so i changed the scraper, didn't work again for 2 weeks!!

Got it sorted now, so i won't change anything again :-D

should hubby:

use entire disk
use entire disk and set up lvm
use entire disk and set up encrypted lvm

My TV shows still don't work. They just show up as a clip with the date 1970 :-D

doesn't sound like the same install?? But 'use disk' I would choose.

Are you installing from USB?

Anchorman shows up as Anchorman 2 (which I'm pretty sure doesn't exist!!) Down to Earth shows up as Rocket to Earth, other than that 100 odd movies and 20 odd different TV shows all work

Ah ok. Use 'entire disk'. Unless your trying to dual boot?

ok second time lucky!

Every film of mine (600+) works perfectly after a bit of configuration, but the TV shows are in a different world to the rest! Might try and fix it one day, but for now i'm happy :-D

The weird thing is, they all work on the XBMC iPhone app!

Because the full title is Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Change this and rescrape and it should show correctly.

Have you used Ember Media Manager? Much better than XBMC built in scraper.

You need to use a free ftp software and go to

192.168.1.90
Username XBMC
Password: XBMC (i think) SANCHO!!! :-D

Use port 22 also

Yeah, think xbox is standard, mine is different though, changed it during install, so op would know i suppose

Original Poster

changed mine and have managed to login! where do i put the aeon skin?

Sorry to hijack on the thread but it seems an appropriate place for my question,could anyone direct me to a guide (maybe in laymans terms) on what kind of hardware i need and info on setting up a media thinger-me-jiggy,i have seen a few bits about and looked at the xmbc thing which looks nice upon the big screen,but am a complete noob to this,am i right in thinking that i could set up a media centre on one side of my room and have everything stream to plasma which is stuck upon my wall on the other side of the room,so i don't have anything hanging about near the plasma?.or would i be just as best sticking with my PS3 on a shelve of some kind underneath the plasma?Appreciate any advice or direction.

Wow i'd luv to know how you guys worked out all this advanced stuff with built-in scrapers and that - can you recommend links to explain all this stuff to us mere mortals revo users ;-)
