Thanks for the suggestion, but that's too much work.
Sounds like the next Beta will have non flashable support
in it anyway. But still no support for 'G' drive...

Any PVR solution for MCE will need some sort
of external MPEG encoder , as the xbox
is too wimpy to handle software mpeg encoding/decoding simultaneously.

Using MCE to view streams from an external myth box
is a sure bet though.

hard to get excited about MCE when...

...the beta won't support xenium or loopback drives.

Let me know when they add non-direct-flashable bios support
and alternatives to the native 'f' install. If a native drive is required,
I really hope they'll add 'g' drive support...

Skateordie, Try using the gentoox loader here: http://gentoox.shallax.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=17 Contains a bios and .xbe that should boot your stardust.iso disc (stardust install) and/or load your gentooxx.xbe (ftp install). You may stiill have video trouble after the install,...

OK, so I reinstalled via ftp method and was able to ssh in, get magic running, and now everything is running just fine. Now I just need to find the suitable .xbe to replace the bootloader gentoox.xbe so I go straight into linux and I'm all set, resize the text fonts larger for a composite video conn...

Thanks for the tips. I'm all set in the iso create and burn
department now!

Now I just need a simple command line perl script to rename files
to fatx format, not the bloated visual basic prog's I've seen
floating 'round... Anyone?

Thanks!

Shallax, Thanks for the reply. With the new bootloader, I was able to get gentoox installed with Stardust ('F' install). However, when I reboot the system, I get a pink flickering screen and can't read a thing. I've read the tutorials and understand that I need to ssh in and run magic. I've setup my...

Thanks for the reply. Turns out the problem I am having is more likely to do with the bios not loading correctly (no video), as posted in this thread: http://forums.shallax.com/viewtopic.php?t=1720 Looks like the Stardust.iso is just a standard UDF file, easily burned to disc afterall. But I'm still...

no video with stardust bios (home v3)?

I've got a new Xenium Ice installed on a 1.4 xbox. I've flashed both resolution stardust bioses with no problems, however, I get no video with either bios. The controller rumbles, the eject led cycles colors, and the dvd ejects to take the Stardust.iso cd, but NO VIDEO. Anyone else have problems wit...

Burning Stardust.iso with cdrecord?

Not having luck burning the Stardust.iso (home version) with Toast 6 on mac 10.3.4 that will read on my xbox (1.4 w/Samsung Drive) using TDK 4x cd-rw media or Taiyo-Yuden CD-R media. I figure I'll try 'cdrecord' (linux/unix command line). Can someone please post the settings they usually use: Ie bur...
