I'm using Raspbmc. I can drop to the console by using the 'off' button in the XBMC UI and then pressing Esc.
However, how do I return to XBMC from the console? Typing
exit in the console returns me to the XMBC UI. However, once I did this, I cannot return to the console from the UI. Now the intermediate screen that asks me to hit Esc doesn't appear anymore and the console reappears immediately. I can work in the console, but after a minute or so, the XBMC UI just takes over.
exit to leave the console wrong? What do I need to do to correctly restart XBMC after spending time in the console?
