you claim that you have done a Hack to copy the videoutput of the HDMI port to the PiScreen interface.
I would like to know how you have done.
Thanks by advance.

PiScreen isnt supported on XBMC. However there is a work around to copy what is display on the HDMI port(fb0) to the PiScreen.
To do this, we will need Framebuffer Copy.pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get install cmake
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ git clone https://github.com/tasanakorn/rpi-fbcp
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd rpi-fbcp/
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ mkdir build
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cmake ..
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ make
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo install fbcp /usr/local/bin/fbcp
To use Framebuffer Copy the console needs to be on fb0. If it isnt already there, you can change it to fb0 using this command;pi@raspberrypi ~ $ con2fbmap 1 0
The run framebuffer copy in the backgroundpi@raspberrypi ~ $ fbcp &
You should now have fb0 mirrored onto fb1(PiScreen).

Thank you so much for your response. I will have to try that.
I hope that xbmc will definitely come to support some additional screens like yours.
Keep on your good job !

Im having trouble getting the installations complete cmake .. gives me
CMake Error: The source directory "/home" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
A little new to linux and my pi here, trying to get lcd working at least for a final project for school, wanted to make car media kit running raspbmc, using bitsync to auto load music onto pi. Any help would be great i have the bitsync and wifi dongle working to auto sync just cant get lcd to display, i understand using raspbmc using the clone isnt the ideal way to achieve this just wanted a user friendly gui for display in a vehicle.December 10, 2014 at 7:30 pm #3107Mark WilliamsKeymaster
Did you create the directory "build"? This is the step just before
