    No Video but sound?

    Ok, before going much further, Have you tried resetting video settings on the pi ? Also have you ensured no upsclaing, picture processing etc on the amp ? Can you also let us know, when say no picture, is this just when playing back video ? Do you get the boot screen / xmbc menu etc ?

    What happens if he takes the amp out of the equation and plugs directly into tv, does he then have sound and picture ? I know he wants it via amp, but as troubleshooting goes you need to try locate source of problem so try see if it's amp or tv If with direct connection he gets sound and...

    Does xbmc use full bandwidth by default

    I know sounds a stupid question, but not convinced that when streaming the full speed of my broadband is being used, I only have 4mb speed, but if I start streaming something then run a speed test I still get just under 2mb speed making me think xbmc is only using half my speed for streaming
