    XBMC on original XBox: Stupid Question

    When I switch on the xbox, it boots to it's normal screen. How do I get it to boot to XBMC. I know it does because i've used it before! Just the once mind, and now I can't remember! I'm sure you power on using the eject switch or something??

    it has MAMEoX and MenuX installed on the hard drive, but finding it through 'memory' on the dashboard only gives me the option to delete

    i havent tried this even thought i have modded 5 consoles :lol:

    isnt there an option in the softmod menu or in the xmbc settings ?

    When I boot, it goes straight to the official xbox menu...I'm sure the guy I got it from did a button press and it booted straight to the other menu

    How do I get to the XBMC settings though?

    You need to set it up when doing the actual softmod. I set them up to boot to xbmc by default.

    What happens when you turn it on with the eject button?

    Press the on (small) button. I'm guessing you're starting it up with the eject button?

    or start it up with a divx dvd in the drive, it'll default to XBMC then

    I reckon it needs remoddding. On dual boot pressing the eject button starts MS Dash and power button (with the tray closed) should start the modded dash.

    right, booted fine to XBMC with a DivX in the drive... suppose I will just leave it in there!

    I think you either press and hold in the power button, or power on while the disk drawer is out

    Not sure if you'll understand this or not (no offense) but you can set XBMC to be the default dash by creating a 'shortcut'

    Basically you make a file and give the location of XBMC's application (sorta like an EXE for Windows) (usually E:\Apps\XBMC\xbmc.xbe) and then upload it along with the shortcut tool.

    Option 1 is what I am talking about, it's also the easiest.
