3. Configuring XBian
To configure basic and advanced XBian settings you have two main options. In both you can change basic and advanced settings or add additional packages, updates and many more
Option one is from within the XBMC GUI menu where you go to System > Settings > XBian
Option two includes SSH connection from another computer or directly on Raspberry Pi if you have keyboard/mouse connected.
Stop XBMC or connect to your Raspberri Pi using SSH (see: Part 2: Connect to your Raspberry Pi using SSH) You should now be seeing xbian-config
Below is the structure of XBian-config. We recommend having a look at the bold entries.
