Re: Eben Webinar for element14 on 4th April

I would love to but family holiday will get in the way and the data roaming charges would probably kill me before SWMBO.

Thankfully it seems there will be a recording for those who cannot make it to the live event.

Re: Pictorial Buying Guide

<t>I might be wrong, but I thought I read somewhere that the R-Pi hardware does support HDMI 1.4, it is just that the drivers to make it work (HDMI-CEC) don't exist yet?<br/> <br/> Can anyone else verify this?<br/> <br/> If so, it might be worth the small additional cost for the HDMI 1.4 cable...<br...
