XBMC Live 10.0 – Zotac HD-ID11-U

February 23rd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have an Acer Revo AR-1600 with XBMC running on it hooked to a different TV. It worked so good I thought I’d do a similar setup for a second TV. The difference this time is that it’s in a room that doesn’t have CAT5 run to it, so I wanted a box with WiFi built in. I selected the following items, and purchased them from newegg. The remote is the same remote as I am using with me Revo. I decided to get the same one again because it works great.

  • Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11-U
    • Newegg Item #: N82E16856173005
    • Price: $249.99
  • AVS Gear HA-IR01SV MCE VISTA Remote Control
    • Newegg Item #: N82E16880121001
    • Price: $21.20
  • Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVT 250GB 5400 RPM 2.5″ HDD
    • Newegg Item #: N82E16822136387

I’m actually not using the WD HDD for my XBMC box.  Instead I had a 4GB flash drive laying around that I installed XBMC on.  This way I can put the WD HDD in an external case and use it as a portable hard drive to take with my laptop.

Bios Settings

Hold down the ‘del’ key while the machine is booting to get into the bios settup
Exit -> Load Optimal Defaults
Advanced -> ACPI Settings -> General ACPI Configurational Defaults
Advanced -> ACPI Settings -> General ACPI Configuration

  • Suspend mode -> S3 (STR)
  • Repost Video on S3 Resume -> Yes

Getting suspend to work

A Source said that they inserted the USB Mouse and Keyboard on the back USB Ports, they two, that are farthest from the eSata, also resume from S3. The other two, by the eSata, don’t resume from S3. The front USB port resumes form S3 as well.

I simply enabled all the usb ports, that can, to resume from S3, this way if I moved the IR receiver then it would still work. You can try them from the command line with the following:

sudo sh -c 'echo "USB0" > /proc/acpi/wakeup'
sudo sh -c 'echo "USB1" > /proc/acpi/wakeup'
sudo sh -c 'echo "USB2" > /proc/acpi/wakeup'
sudo sh -c 'echo "USB3" > /proc/acpi/wakeup'

Then you can see if it added them to the wakeup by running:

cat /proc/acpi/wakeup

If the remote will now resume from suspend you can have the machine add wakeup to these usb port on startup.

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

Now add the following to the end of the /etc/rc.local file, but before “exit 0″:

echo USB0>/proc/acpi/wakeup
echo USB1>/proc/acpi/wakeup
echo USB2>/proc/acpi/wakeup
echo USB3>/proc/acpi/wakeup

Obviously if you figured out which USB you needed before, then you really only need to add the one. You may want to try the command ‘lsusb’ it may give you some insight as to which USB to use. When in run lsusb it gives me:

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 1784:0008 TopSeed Technology Corp.
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f2:0402 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0930:6545 Toshiba Corp. Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 Stick (4GB) / PNY Attache 4GB Stick
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 003 Device 003 is my IR Sensor (back bottom USB below eSata below lan) ,
Bus 001 Device 004 is my Thumb drive that I have the OS installed to. When I rebooted my machine ‘lsusb’ gave me the IR Sensor on Bus 003 Device 002, so maybe adding all of them is the best idea.
