TVVN 0.9.8

10 September 2015

Just a quick update that I’ve just released a new version of TVVN (0.9.8) to the official repo. Based on past experiences, it will take a couple days to hit the mirrors. Meanwhile (and going forward for that matter) you can go to the github release page to get the latest version.

Clean up XBMC’s screensaver cache to get rid of blurry low resolution slideshows.

10 September 2014

I have XBMC run a slideshow of family photos in screensaver mode. Problem? XBMC caches the images automatically and therefore the photos are replaced by low-resolution, blurry cached copies. This is noticeably annoying especially if you have large, hi-res TV. I approached the developer of the screensaver addon about the problem but it is out of his hands because the cache are managed system-wide (within XBMC of course).

OpenELEC: kills XBMC using keyboard or remote

03 June 2014

I recently ditched my aging 12.04-Ubuntu-based XBMC setup to go with OpenELEC which is purposed-built and thus very fast. Because it is so streamlined, you lose the flexibility of a full-blown distro setup. One of which was the lack of lircd support on the recent builds. With my previous setup, I could use lircd to map a particular keyboard/remote key to a script that would kill and restart xbmc when it hang.

TV Viet Nam 0.9.1

06 June 2013

Great news! The long-anticipated update has been released. v0.9.1 is now in the official repo, so make sure you force-refresh in case xbmc was too lazy to do it automatically. Thanks to your error-reportings and donations, your continued support make it worthwhile to keep maintaining this addon.
