Re: MAME

This is a great project, seeing as someone also put a Pi in an old Gameboy case, there is potential to have a portable arcade machine, or use one in the car with PS3 controllers, very good indeed.

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

Do you know what the Tuxbox is sending the feed out in? The Raspberry only has the H.264 codec. See if you can change the format the stream goes out into, I did this for my Hulu, Amazon, BBC Iplayer streams to fix a similar issue.
