Look at installing MythTV, I believe that it has a built in DVD ripping application. Search around the forums.

the biggest problem is having a dash and applications that support reading a partition table from disk. If you repartition with xbpartitioner you need to make sure that all of your apps will be able to read this new modified partition stucture. Otherwise you either won't have access to your files or...

You won't see overscan on a computer monitor. It's not the output from the xbox that causes the overscan on HDTV, the HDTV does the overscanning on its own. Something to do with backwards compatibility with composite and S-Video.

I don't think that solving the problem will be that easy as it is not only Gentoox that is having the problem. XDSL suffers from the same thing with high speed fan and all. I am guessing that the problem has something to do with the kernel. Perhaps when/if they get the new 2.6.x kernel working it wi...

Thanks for your help, but I already got in. I just launched gentoox.xbe from XBMC so I could still play my games in high-res if I want to. The only problem I have now is the stupid overscan. I found settings for fbset that managed to get everything just inside the borders of my screen, but it is giv...

I had the same problem. The only solution that I found was to set XBMC to auto for the screen resolution and just launch it from there, the beginning menu will be garbled, but just wait of press enter if you have a keyboard hooked up and it will begin bootup. I still have yet to fix my overscan prob...

I found a better explanation of how fbset works here it is: ============================================================ On v1.6 xboxes the kernel has limited support for the xbox's graphics chip and so has no built in overscan correction i.e. the timing (the sum of visible and non visible pixels) i...

I had the same problem when launching from UnleashX while connected to my HDTV with component cables. I was able to get gentoox to launch by using the latest version of XBMC set to auto for the screen resolution under settings. XBMC displays in 1080i, but gentoox didn't have any options beyond 720p....

Ok when I went home for lunch I decided to try launching gentoox from within XBMC since it seems to handle the resolution switching better. IT WORKED!!! I got a garbled screen at first when it displayed the blue loading screen, but as soon as it started bootup the text appeared on the screen clear a...

I have UnleashX set to use 480p. If I set it higher the text actually gets bigger and way off screen. So I know that's set right, and when I start an application or game the screen shows me the mode that the TV is in. However when i launch gentoox.xbe it just goes black and says Video 3 in the corne...

I have tried both choosing the gentoox.xbe and then unplugging all the controllers...same thing, loud fan and then xbox turns itself off. Then I tried booting via the boot loader, but it just wants me to insert the Stardust CD, it doesn't even recognize that I installed linux. I installed it to F wi...

HDTV is acting weirder than ever

I just aquired a nice 23" HDTV for my bedroom. I went out and bought a set of Monster's Component cables to take advantage of the high definition immediately. I was especially interested in being able to run Gentoox in decent resolutions while still being able to read eveything on screen. I had scre...

Ok I only have one question left then. If I want to use mkisofs to create and ISO image with a certain set of files what are the commmands I should use to do it? Most of the files that I want to burn to CD are avi files and therefore are not part of any ISO yet. However I can always burn the new sta...
