      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

XBMC audio goes HD

19 posts in this topic

I know this is something alot of you have been bitching about for awhile.

http://xbmc.org/dddamian/2012/05/30/xbmc-audio-goes-hd/

What is AudioEngine? A complete re-write of the core audio sub-system of XBMC, and a two-year project comprising some 22,000 lines of code.

Spear-headed by lead-developer gnif, with contributions from many other team developers (dddamian, gimli, fneufneu, anssi, memphiz and others!), AudioEngine brings high-definition audio to the already amazing XBMC. No matter the audio source, AE handles the decoding, resampling, transcoding, encoding and streaming of your media, including for the first time DTS-MA, TrueHD and 24-bit audio. XBMC has never sounded better!

I would rather see them do another full release with this included. Not sure if it makes sense to use a nightly build?

Why not?

I've always used the beta builds.

The nightly builds for XBMC are generally rock solid. You could always get a bad egg, but I know several people that permanently run nighties.

Can I install a nightly build and it not fuck with any of my skins, settings, or library?

It should still work.

I had no issue going from Eden to the nightly.

Are you upgrading frequently? My concern is mostly with that. Whether the nightlys will be stable enough that I don't have to worry about continuously updating

it wont really matter, my piece of shit AMD HTPC won't allow streaming HDMI audio to work with my 768 resolution television.

Wow, I didn't know this existed. I am planning on building a HTPC and I was going to use Windows media center. This looks like a better alternative. Does this do TV channels with a cable card, and will it give me a guide? (like a channel guide with tv listings and such)

Like so:

Pretty sure you're better off using WMC for PVR / TV viewing functionality and XBMC for everything else.

This is what I do.

Thanks for the responses. That's a shame, XBMC looks really nice, it would be nice to have an all in one application available. I think a big draw for an HTPC is the PVR ability. I can get rid of my DVR/Cable box.

Does anyone else use the Android app with XBMC? Seems when I upgraded to this version my TV shows don't populate with info and artwork in the app itself like with 11.0 final. I can still use it as a remote and my movies have the artwork/info.

I was thinking about setting up a PVR but because of package pricing it would cost me less to continue using Verizon's DVR box. Would have been interesting to set one up but don't see a point in my case.
