I have an ubuntu server with XBMC installed and the server connected to a TV via an HDMI cable. To launch XBMC I am running the command:
sudo init xbmc
By using ssh to remote to the server and then running the command that way. This seems to work fine at the time and I will be able to watch a film or a TV show. After a few hours XBMC seems to stop running whether it is playing something or not, which means that every time I wish to watch something I have to ssh to the server and run that command.
My ideal solution would be to only have to run that command once so that I could turn the TV off and go away for an indefinite period but when I come back I can use XBMC without having to log in and run that command.
I reckon I must be starting XBMC incorrectly or perhaps there is something in the settings that I have not set properly, can anybody help?
