Need advise on cutting cable cost.

My last bill from Att was $215...sick of paying that much to watch only a few shows. I dont want to cut the cord from cable entirely. I would like to keep basic cable and internet, but still be able to watch the shows I like on HBO and showtime. I`m already a netflix subscriber, any other suggestions ? Can you buy season passes for most of the shows on HBO and Showtime?



Thanks!

Have you tried the toothpick reset by pressing the little hidden button on the AV port?

Have you tried this: http://matricom.net/forums/#/discuss...tricom-screen-

Yeah, that's how i get the Android boot screen up (the toothpick trick). My next step is to do the firmware reinstall from SD card.

I use playon to stream, paid a one time $50 fee..w/ a roku

I can get most cable channels live through various plugins, plus the whole archive of movies and tv via channel1 and some others.

Best part is they just released a browser plugin the lets you stream any video you are watching to your tv w/ the click of a button. It's how I watch all sports now.

plus netflix and aero for $8 each a month

never ever going back to cable, saving $100 a month

quick question regarding the advancedsettings.xml file. I have been copying and pasting code from pastebins and code sections from forums, but I notice they are not tabbing out the spacing. Does that matter?

advancedsettings
network>
cachemembuffersize>104857600/cachemembuffersize>
/network>
/advancedsettings>

or should it all be tabbed like an outline? Does it matter?

(forum will not let me start the < command)

Spaces don't matter with the code. It ignores spaces, as well as some other characters.

If in doubt, take a look at your xbmc.log file. If your advancedsettings.xml file is working/interpreted correctly, it should be visible in your log file. If there's a problem with it, it will tell you in the log file.

I'm trying to put the new firmware on an SD card, and I can't get it to extract.

It either says the .zip file is empty or that I need the last volume in a multivolume.


Edit:
Finally found a firmware update that seems to be valid and work. Currently have the icon that indicates that firmware is upgrading, so I'm hopeful. The other files listed in the youtube videos and message boards didn't seem to actually have anything in them (they downloaded super fast vs. this one which was about 4gigs).

Yes! Thank god. I'm up and running again. I wouldn't say that was an exactly fun way to spend an evening, but I learned a few things hacking around with the box... and I now have xbmc up and running with 1channel currently downloading.

Question (sort of dumb and lazy, but whatever...):

Is there a universal movie app of some kind that will save movies that I'm wanting to watch into a list? What I'd like to do is, when I'm at my PC at work or talking to someone with my mobile device handy and run across a movie I'd like to watch... I'd like to be able to add it to a list that will automatically show up in my 1channel app.

My problem is that I'm always sitting in front of the TV and end up browsing around because I can't remember a movie that I've been meaning to watch (pathetic, I know).

Alternately: something along the lines of Goodreads, but for movies, would be great. An online community where I can browse movies, flag movies as "watched/to-watch" and read reviews (I know IMDB has some of this functionality), preferably they'd also have a mobile app.

I'm not aware of a solution like that which would work with 1Channel. But I'll take a look.

Probably a good opportunity to pimp my very favorite XBMC plugin again, which does exactly what you're requesting.

What the Furk

What the Furk is a plugin used in conjunction with a subscription to the Furk.net website($7-8/mth). Furk is a torrent aggregator. Meaning it will search all available torrent sites for the media you're looking for, and download it from the torrent site to its own servers. Then you can direct download the media safely without ever having to go through the torrent process, including being tagged for copyright violations and such. WTF can stream 1080p content with no problem as well. You can set your desired video quality so it will only display results that match it, etc.

The WTF plugin can also incorporate IMDB watchlists. So you go to the IMDB site and create different watchlists. You can create them to suite your family needs such as Kids Movies, Kids TV, Wife Movies, My Movies, My TV, etc. Then add the titles to each. In the plugin, it will show up as a list. It works very well, and it's been my go to solution for quite a while. IMDB has a smartphone app as well.

Once you start using WTF, you'll likely only use 1Channel for stuff you might not be able to find on WTF. The only downfall of WTF is that new TV episodes usually take a few days to get added. So generally I only use 1Channel these days when I'm too impatient to wait another day or so to watch on WTF.

It's a little confusing setting it up, but once it's setup it's bad ass.

That looks pretty awesome, and I may pull the trigger on it before long.

Hey, do you use a wireless keyboard/mouse with your box? Considering buying one and stopping using my iPad/iPhone with the remote app.

Okay, Fish. I'm having some crashing issues while playing video as well as some streaming issues in general. I think it may be a result of my wireless network (or maybe it's on the server side). Here are the warnnings:

Those warnings there are irrelevant. You'll find the exact same on machines that are working fine. Your log file doesn't really indicate that anything is wrong with XBMC. I see a lack of response from moviedb.org, which is used for downloading metadata. Looks like their server didn't respond quick enough. Some warnings about audio discontinuity. But that is usually the video file itself not being encoded correctly. Nothing really jumps out from the log file.

Could you give more detail on what's happening?
How do you have Audio configured in XBMC system settings?
Have you done any changes recently that might correlate with the issue? Did you add a different advancedsettings.xml or anything? You're running the zero cache version, which is actually the same one I use too.

Only thing of note is that you're still running v12.0. 12.2 is the newest stable version. Are you still running the custom version of XBMC from the manufacturer of your box, or can you upgrade to 12.2? Some of the plugins can be picky about needing the newest version.

I would note that if at all possible, I'd use wired networking. Performance and reliability seem much better that way. Make sure to reboot your modem and router too. Make sure your router firmware is up to date.

The problems all started when I did the idiot brick that I talked about earlier. I tried to redo the firmware per the video you linked, but the firmware packages they linked to appeared to be empty. I ended up using a cadnadian (I think) firmware pack that I found in a different thread. That worked, but it appeared much more "bloated" than the original one (lots of repos and addons seemed to already be installed). I'd like to find a wAy to return the box to the way I received it and start over. I'm sure there is a way, but I haven't looked into it too much yet. If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them.


As for what's happening: it just crashes a lot. The YouTube app seems to be the biggest culprit. 1channel videos will often play for a while, them the machine crashes. Currently we are almost though Elf with the family without a crash, and I'm that kful because my wife and kids are ready to kill me for the current unreliable state of our video watching.

And I'm looking at running an Ethernet wire to it. I think the shittu AT&T wireless router may be to blame for some of the connectivity and speed issues.

I'm moving my convo into here since obviously I am teh failz at forum surch.

Couldn't get the remote app to work because I have to get to the settings to set mac and IP and whatnot. Which I can't do without a remote. I'm not even bothering to send the one that came with back as I'm too used to my Logitech touchscreen and I've hated similar remotes that I've used with other people's Roku's and whatnot.

Anyway, I'll probably run and get a keyboard/touchpad today, just looking for any recs. I know I like my Logitech HT remote and it sounds like that's what you're using NC. Fish, any other things you'd recommend looking at?

Gotta get this sheet today so I can futz around on the new toy all day tomorrow.

Welp, left work early and been fuggin' with this thing for a few hours now and I gotta take a break. At this point, not terribly impressed.

Netflix is laggy and only showing in SD no matter what display settings I change. Running perfect as always on XBox w/same ethernet connection. One thing I noticed was there weren't any HD/Audio feed indicators on the Android app. Is that app just not HD? This some booshit if so.

Are there any updates to the Fusion stuff on XBMC or other recommended addons you guys are using (haven't looked at the tvonline or WTF stuff yet)? I followed the link you ref'ed, Fish and installed a bunch of stuff from zip. Most of the ones you recommended weren't there anymore, and the other Icefilms/Sportsdevil's stuff all seems to be showing as broken when I try to install the video stuff in the addons.

So, yeah, frustrated enough to quit messing with it for tonight even though I didn't have to pay for it. I don't care as much about the Netflix since I also have that in HD on my XBox (and my bluray and my tv and my ipad and my...seriously, WTF?) but I'm pretty interested in actually getting the XBMC to work...
