Re: Is there a way to link 2 RPis together to make a faster computer?

Hi, Just wondering if it is possible to link or daisychain two RPis together - to make a faster computer. Also, would I need two SD cards? :? And the same OS on each? :shock: So the point of this is to hook up two RPi 2s together, each running at 800 Mhz, to make a 1.6 Ghz ARM computer. :P Thanks, ...

Re: Multi-OS Media Centre

Would it work better if I did away with the multiple OS's, and just installed RetroPie, adding Kodi to it? But as far as I can see, RetroPie installs Kodi 17.3 as well, so would I still be unable to get Netflix working? Or would the XMBC Netflix Add On work here? For bonus points, I wanted Prim Vid...
