Heads up that RISC OS is back in NOOBS, if you'd like to add it.
This would be excellent.

Re: RISC OS and Hyperpixel Screen

No idea about the screen. But the zero W might not be all that suitable if you want to connect to the internet with it. You want an Ethernet port to connect your Pi to a network using Risc OS.

Re: RISCOS and wireless?

For a desktop computer (such as a RPi with RISC OS) WiFi does not make any since. It's totally the other way around IMO. The files you need for your Risc OS projects are so small, that there's no real need to worry about plugging straight into the router if it's not conveniently placed. Here's how ...

Re: What can I do with RISCOS?

I've poked around Google for a while seeing if I could find any cool projects that anyone's done with RiscOS, but I'm not seeing a whole lot. Here's what I've been up to: https://blog.dxmtechsupport.com.au/playing-badass-acorn-archimedes-games-on-a-raspberry-pi/ There's a couple of guys out there p...

Playing Badass Acorn Archimedes Games on Risc OS

Ok, so I think just about every retro gaming nut out there has figured out by now that the Pi is a brilliant platform for emulating classic 8 and 16-bit consoles. What's perhaps not so well appreciated is that there's a whole library of games from the exact same era that were written to run natively...

Re: Watching Australian TV on a Raspberry Pi with no Antenna

This is for the Freeview Australia. It doesn't get you any British television. That sounds similar though. Over here, Freeview do the digital broadcasting as well as offering streaming on the internet. The channels you get from this are exactly the same as if you connected an antenna to a set top bo...

Re: Watching Australian TV on a Raspberry Pi with no Antenna

I have NBN and one TV :( But I have many Pi's and Monitors :lol: Wonder if there is a 64bit Kodi? Probably wont work if OZ free to air TV is h.264 encoded as that uses the h.264 VC4 decoder? My ignorance is showing - Kodi google time. I'm not sure dude. The extension seems to just work. I didn't wr...

You are aware that this isn't strictly legal, yes? I'm talking about you streaming it. If the stream comes via an IPTV service, then its perfectly legal.
This sounds a bit dodgy.

Freeview is the official digital platform of the free-to-air channels.

I've seen it advertised on billboards.

Watching Australian TV on a Raspberry Pi with no Antenna

Hey everyone, I recently set up my Raspberry Pi media centre to stream Australian free-to-air channels over the internet. I've done this using Retropie 4.4 on a 3B+, but you should be able to install this Add-on on any Kodi setup. You might need a VPN to access these channels outside Australia. Full...

Re: Why is raspbian seem dead?

Looks like it's being updated all the time from what I can see. There was a whole new version just the other month. The browser works perfectly for me for basic lounge room use like bandcamp and youtube and podcasts and so on. I only really have one tab open at a time though - because ateotd it's a ...

Re: Trouble installing RISCOS on Pi3

Hi, I'm new-ish to the Pi, and still have a RISC-PC running here too! I've recently bought a Pi 3B+, having used RISC-OS on a Pi 2B for some time now. The Pi 2B has Raspbian and RISC-OS both on the same micro-SD card, plus a few other things too. This means I can easily boot up in either of them at...

Re: Trying to dual boot RISCOS and Retropie

Thanks! I'll give option 2 a go. I have to unscrew my case to swap cards, which is kind of a drag when you just wanna play a few levels. If I can't get dual boot working, I'll just get another case.

Re: Trying to dual boot RISCOS and Retropie

Thanks for the super prompt replies.. muy obrigado :)

So, where to from here?

I have 2 SD cards - could I write the image to one of them, and then make a tar.xz from that?

Or does the RISCOS file system ruin that?

Trying to dual boot RISCOS and Retropie

Hey everyone, I'm trying to set up an SD card to dual boot RISCOS and Retropie so that I can play some Acorn Archimedes games as well. It says on the website that the NOOBS boot loader can install RISCOS.. but when I go to do it, it's not in the menu. I've tried PINN as well and have had the same pr...
