Cubieboard v2 (A20)
Linaro Raring Server
with XBMC (SDcard image)
Linaro Server 2013-10-14 XBMC autostart with framebuffer, with CedarX acceleration, smooth playing mpeg encoded files. Installed SSH server and Midnight Commander eth0 configured as dhcp client. After starting connect by SSH with the login/password root/root
Fixed: 1. 10 min living bug | 2. h.264 played without pink artefacts, but some files still choppy
Issues: 1. Lib CEC 2. Reboot/shutdown from xbmc menu 3. Changing vertical sync settings in xbmc can affect to framebuffer fullscreen scaling 4. SATA mount by hand, or fstab config 5. Unnatural colors in video (?)

NO XBMC!
HW video decode is working, and libhybris is integrated: http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarX/libve. This solves issues with weighted P-frame prediction in files like the Sintel movie trailer described here: http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarXVideoRenderingChart.
