Now that alpha 2.37 has been released, anyone try it that had the "orbiter already started" error?
The answer to your question is YES, I have installed the 810-Alpha2.37 update and YES when I rebooted my Core the problem was gone.
Since this has been such a menace for most non-Linux people and newbies to LinuxMCE, I would like to thank whomever is responsible for the fix. I had decided not to reinstall my core simply because I have to many devices installed and working very well, so I've just lived with doing a quick regen of my core's orbiter #21 each time after a needed router reload to get it temporarily under control. Enough bandwidth wasted.
