Hostname assignment & a question on config management

    I'm after upgrading to Thibor15c. Absolutely love the firmware with its many features. I have two small questions though. One is more related to Thibor than the other but I said i'd ask the second in her as i've seen Thibor has got the same xbox setup as myself.

    Firstly. I have a v2.2 WRT54G which requires me to envoke the overdrive feature using the nvram command. If after doing this I create a backup of my config, will a restore config be enough on a nvram cleared newly flashed WRT54G. It's a small question but one I would like to know. I actually asked this question at the end of another thread but didn't get any response.

    Secondly. I have an xbox hooked up to my network through one of the lan ports on my wrt. Unfortunately you can't setup a hostname on the xbox. But i saw a feature in Thibor for assigning hostnames based on ip/mac. I tried it out but it didn't seem to work properly for me. If my workgroup name was "Home" shall we say. What values would I need to fill in to give my xbox a hostname of "xbox". Edit: The end result I want is the ability to be able to ping my xbox with the command "ping xbox".
    Thanks Brian.

    your xbox can have the hostname set in the ms dashboard. if you're using xbmc or unleashx i don't know where it would be.
    as for clk-freq, restore the backup and tell me if it works
