    XBMC Question..

    Bought another modded xbox (original) yesterday to store all my movies and music on. Currently in the process of upgrading XBMC build (from http://217.118.215.116/) and have just FTP'd the file into my Apps on the F drive on the xbox as XBMC2. How do I make this my default XBMC..i.e. not the previous build?

    One last question....have a Youtube script which works up to the point of listing available videos to watch but when I click on them nothing happens! Any idea how to resolve?

    Thanks in advance...(rep for help)

    rename the old XMBC folder to XBMC_old or something, then rename XBMC2 to XBMC

    When your up and running delete XBMC_old

    It automatically boots into xbmc at present. Where do I rename the current XBMC build then? Trying to do it via my laptop won't work! I'm guessing avalaunch or something? When I replace the new build with old will it stop booting automatically into XBMC?

    Thanks for your help - I've only just gotten into the modded scene, despite owning an original xbox since launch day!

    You can rename the XBMC folder via FTP but you wont be able to do it if you are running XBMC at the same time.

    You'll need to boot into Avalaunch or somthingg, then FTP in, then do you renaming

    Cheers guys - off to try that now!

    Any idea on Youtube btw? TBH it's no great deal as I can surf youtube via my PS3 which is right next to it!

    I'm liking the new MediaStream skin - might take a bit of getting used to though!

    Hmm another quick question -

    Am trying to update xbmc build on my other modded xbox - however, can't rename the xbmc2 folder via FTP as keep getting an access denied message :thinking: same goes for xbmc folder. Am running Avalaunch whilst trying to do this...for some reason in Avalaunch when I try and rename a folder there is no option to confirm?!

    Help! Thanks...

    Not sure sorry. I'd run xbmx rename the other, then switch to the other … Not sure sorry. I'd run xbmx rename the other, then switch to the other xbmc and rename that. I use unleashx on mine.



    Fixed it by using another program similar to Avalaunch - still not sure why I couldn't rename the folder via FTP though :thinking:

    Love the Youtube function - all fully working now as is the weather

    Well not all working well - games and any program not crashes xbmc :-( Everything else works fine i.e. weather, scripts but no games or any program. Movies and music work no problem...:thinking:

    It just freezes when I try and run anything - have tried UnleashX & old XBMC - they just refuse to load :-(

    Can't swap them round via FTP either as keep getting an access denied message!

    you should be able to regain ftp access with a boot disc such as slayers

    I have PM'd you the link (218mb)

    It worked for me when I accidently deleted a vital .xbe file - with this disc in the drive FTP access was restored. I don't pretend to understand what else it can do for you
