Raspberry Pi with USB DAC running XBMC on OpenELEC

This is just a note to self, to make things easier when updating to a new build in the future. What I needed to do to get my Pi running correctly with Milhouse build 503:

First mount flash partition read/write:
mount -o rw,remount /flash

In /flash/config.txt:
gpu_mem=192
arm_freq=900
core_freq=333
sdram_freq=450
over_voltage=2
force_turbo=1

In /flash/cmdline.txt, add noram.

In Settings, System, enable advanced, then select ALSA USB DAC audio, enable passthrough, and DTS capable receiver.

In ~/.xbmc/userdata/advancedsettings.xml:

<advancedsettings>
<video>
<defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
<defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>
</video>
<network>
<buffermode>1</buffermode>
</network>
</advancedsettings>

Ubuntu ZFS DKMS

In case I ever have issues again with ZFS DKMS:

Honda parts shipped to an APO address

I didn’t expect it to be so difficult to find an online Honda dealer that was willing to ship to an APO address. After wasting time on site after site after site, I finally found one that ships to APO, but wanted to charge over 4x their normal shipping rate! After further searching, I finally found a place that will ship Honda parts to military members overseas at APO address without price gouging them! Visit http://www.bkhondaparts.com if you need to order Honda parts for an APO address without getting ripped off. (or perhaps lingshondaparts.com ?)
(this is mainly a note to myself)
