Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

<t>I wasn't necessarily talking about the Pi, and sometimes compile once, deploy to many diff architectures is important.

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

In fact, decoding DTS to 5.1 speakers seems to work for some films (plays through tv). So it"s only stuttering when decoding DTS to stereo.
Hopefully that info will help some devs at some point

Will come back to the blockiness as I"m done in for tonight.

Not having much luck here. Used dd to put 10870 (page 23) on my card, figured I try it before trying to solve my stuttering prob.
Took 2 hours to copy on. So far been waiting 20mins for first boot.
