RaspBMC is being replaced by OSMC which is at alpha4 now and supports the Pi2.

Re: Lets move to google-groups

Or is it more specific than that as in if a manufacturer wants to use it in an android device then they will need to pay broadcom to write or supply the closed source driver for it? In this case the foundation's aims are met by other OSes and therefore there is no need to go to the expense of suppo...

Re: Teamviewer Raspberry Pi

I thought teamviewer used Wine under the covers so they need to properly port it to linux first. Willing to be corrected on that that if I'm wrong.

Re: Drayton LP522 Central Heating programmer

Hi j, I'm very interested in this as its probably the one thing I have actually wanted to do i.e. turn the heating on when I wake up (rather than rely on the timer) and also before I leave the office for home. Do you have any circuit diagrams and example code for how you implemented this? cheers Rob

Re: Android Mini PC

This is a more interesting one as the chipset has support for xbmc.

However it will never have the support of a community like the pi does.

Re: OpenElec Builds with GUI 1080p.

Are you saying that the nornal openelec builds are not running with the GUI at 1080p?

I'm running build r12195 and the system info page seems to think its running at 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz and the TV thinks its on a 1080p source?

Re: HDMI CEC and XBMC

I presume that the first switch to the TV is done by the RPi firmware rather than XBMC. I get that impression as well as it happens far too quickly to have even started booting the OS yet. Fortunately I have the option to disable it from the TV side so I don't come home to a TV that has magically t...
