Xbmc updating to frodo

tid=140518&pid=1246709#pid1246709 Note for 512MB Raspberry: If you have a 512MB Raspberry with a previous Open ELEC version installed, you should restart with a fresh install.

(or move your current to old before upgrade) The required gpu mem option will automatically be set depending on your Raspberry Pi hardware.

I am not a very advanced user, but I have done my best.

Xbmc updating to frodo

Make sure to entirely delete it from the app data and and the addons folder and download the frodo version and install from zip. It uses a 10-foot user interface and is designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device.

XBMC can be used to play almost all popular audio and video formats around.

f=67&t=15700 disable_overscan=1 overscan_left=57 overscan_right=59 overscan_top=20 overscan_bottom=20 This method also worked for me, therefore the first method should be preferred to avoid issue when playing back.

An easy way to resolve your fit to screen issue could be to customize UI zoom (by probably -6 or -8%).

You could choose to compile yourself Open ELEC for your Raspberry Pi, therefore i advise you to download last Open ELEC build on: *********************************************************** ********************************************** These images are provided in Bz2 tar archive, when downloaded just extract it using your Desktop (right click then extract here) or in command line: Note: For Windows users, you may need an Archive Software such as 7zip to extract this archive You will get a new directory "Open ELEC-RPi.arm-*", just go in this extracted directory to begin the creation of your SD-card.

With no additional configuration, you may have some "fit to screen" issues, in XBMC UI and play back also.

Based on my tests, i would recommend this settings, but you can change, test or prefer what ever you want.

I could not get stability on higher overclocking model than Medium.

(only setting overvoltage without dynamic frequency allocation would break your Raspberry's warranty) Overclocking is still under work in Open ELEC and Raspberry Pi in general, this is an experimental feature and you should be prepared to restore your installation in case of trouble.
