Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

I suspect I know the answer to this from reading posts and looking at the datasheet, but are there any spare PCI-Express lanes that can be used by addon cards? For example, if someone wanted to add nVME storage to it, is it theoretically possible without going via USB? On a related vein, what is the...

I...I don't even know why you're still replying... Ditto. I also don't know why anyone started taking this thread in a direction that is not relevant.

Did you read the whole of his post? Did you? Especially the bit about spending a lot of money on something he doesn't need and how that was a terrible way of thinking? He was considering a $1000 TV that he doesn't need, just so he can use DTS with his Pi. There's no guarantee the Pi will EVER get t...

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

Essentially though, I think this topic might as well be renamed "Hardware-assisted DTS downmixing" because unlike yourself, I expect a lot of people might be happy with 2.0 DTS if the ARM CPU was capable of downmixing without choking too much, because that would at least allow anybody to play DTS a...

People that want to use a remote - have any of you tried using the XBMC remote apps for Android/iOS? I know it's not quite the same as a physical remote but when you've got direct access to your libraries on the app, does it matter? =P

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

<t>I don't think CPU/GPU power is the issue, as far as I know the decoding is done in hardware and the Pi is more than capable of it (early testers said they could play 1080p without an issue).

Re: USB HD and Samba performance

Isn't the ethernet controller actually attached via the USB bus, so we're actually limited by the speed of USB in general?

If that's the case, that might explain why performance seems so poor when using a USB HD to transfer stuff via ethernet.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

A system image would be nice. Liam, have you had a chance to look at the OpenELEC code yet? I believe they've actually worked on more than just getting XBMC to compile and it might have less bugs/missing features than the raw XBMC code?
