    Hello again tomlohave,

    thank you very much for the hint concerning /usr/lib/alsa-utils/alsa-mixer-setup.

    I have changed there the volume values of the loudspeakers according to my needs and it works perfectly now.

    Concerning the problem I had with the Surround Audio Jack being set to “shared” after reboot:

    I added the following line to alsa-mixer-setup:

    amixer -q set "Surround Jack Mode" "Independent"

    Now everything works like a charm! Thank you!

    Best regards

    P.S.: by the way: when I edited /etc/network with nano, there was a whole page down full of error messages concerning nano. It did launch ok after that, but anyhow something seems to be broken there. Where can I report such bugs?

    Hi tomlohave,

    1. WLAN: I activated wait_for_slow_device and it did the trick! THANK YOU!

    2. Sound:

    I use an on-board sound card: NVidia CK804 with Realtek ALC850 Rev0
    In XBMC: Audio output device: “Defaults (ALSA)” in “5.1 / Analog” configuration
    If I play 5.1 movies I cannot hear any dialogue speech, since the center box is not active. I only hear the surround sound, music, the sub-woofer, etc.
    So that the center box plays properly I have to change some values by hand: I do this with “alsamixer” on the console: I change the “Surround Jack Mode” from “Shared” to “Independent”
    Additionally I make some changes in alsamixer to the volume levels of PCM, Surround, Center and LFE, so to fine tune the volume level of all speakers to my room situation

    After rebooting, those sound settings are reset to the default values. Do you have an idea how I could make this settings permanent / why they are reset to default after reboot?

    Thank you!

    Heyho tomlohave,

    I just wanted to go for some tests with the files that you provided, when I realized that these files are only availiable for i386. Since I have x64 installed, is it possible to provide those files in 64bit, too?

    Thank you

    So as far as I understand, currently GeexBox does not come with any VPN functionality whatsoever?

    In this case I would like to express a feature request: Please implement openVPN (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenVPN) into GeexBox.

    Until then, could you give me a brief introduction on how to install something manually onto GeexBox? Say I would download the sources of openVPN, how would I compile them for GeexBox (I assume that GeexBox comes without any building utilities such as ggc, make, etc. or not?). Or can I install readily-made packages of other distributions onto GeexBox, etc. Ubuntu-deb, openSUSE-rpm, etc.?

    Thank you for any input/hint/advice/howto/help, etc. 🙂

    Another example would be to want to connect a GeeXboX to a fileserver, which is only accessable via VPN due to security/firewall reasons. VPN is an essential element of network security ourdays.

    IIRR an 1.x version of GeexBox supported an advanced netup configuration for this kind of stuff, or am I mistaking?

    @tomlohave:

    @TV implementation: I prefer to wait for the solid implementation of TV in the next version, than hacking it on my own.
    @USB boot: Great, Plop did the job! Thank you very much for this tip!

    @davide: Is there any road map and time schedule for future releases?
    Is there any time estimation on when TV is going to be included in GeeXbox?

    @k-putt: Unfortunately openelec has a somewhat pathetic installation process that requires booting from USB. So it disqualifies, too, unfortunately.
