Re: RELEASE: EmulationStation 2.0-RC1

So I got everything up and running, mapped a generic USB controller using the main settings menu, but it doesn't work in game, only keyboard works

What am I missing?

I only see N64, PS3 and XB360 controller instructions on the wiki, nothing for generic USB controllers

Re: Is my Pi dead?

700mA is the absolute minimum needed iirc

If it is not pushing out exactly 700mA, that could be the problem

I use a 1200mA Nokia charger

No, the router is not running MiniDLNA or any other type of media server other than Samba Server, it is literally only sharing the files over the network, so nothing other than devices with network access can see the files, Chaneru can't see it without the Pi, or with it at the minute Surely followi...

Can we assume that you have the file location specified for LMS using the squeezeplug setup (music library)? If so, then you need to edit the minidlna config file: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MiniDLNA#Media_Handling What are you using on the Roku to play the files? Roku is rubbish as it ha...

Re: Use Pi as a Plex Media Server

There was a previous discussion about this. Plex Media Server is proprietary and closed source, and does not run on the Pi natively - it is compiled for x86. There are ARM versions about, but they are designed for a few specific NAS appliances and there's no guarantee that they're even compiled for...

Re: Rasberry Pi Doesn't Do... Anything...

Try formatting the SDCard using Windows instead of the formatting utility, format it to FAT32 then copy the files to it again and see if it boots

If that still fails, try a different SDCard

Re: Is anyone actually trying to use Raspbian for desktop us

I gave up with using normal desktop environments, found it quite ridiculous that the Pi was designed specifically for Linux yet there is still no X hardware acceleration, its a deal breaker for me

XBian is now its permanent OS and I use it for streaming movies every night
