Default Help with XBMC on Vostro a90 with Snow Leopard - 11-06-2009, 04:36 AM

Hello all, I was hoping to get some help with XBMC. I'm running SL on my Vostro a90, but so far have been unable to get the video out to work with XBMC. When I install the old GMA kexts, not only does XBMC not work, but even programs like VLC will not play video files. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help!

Do not use the old GMA kexts... and then try

The old video kexts can mess with hardware acceleration and really mess with video playback! (from my experience)

If i do that, the video works, but my when i plug the external monitor into the video out port, both screens look like an etch-a-sketch. Any suggestions?
Has anyone had any luck getting their headphone jack working?
