Having watched the Raspi TV video, it actually needs USB OTG, so at least I've got one of those cables about.

It's MINI HDMI not Micro, which is unfortunate as I have a micro cable already.

Looking for micro usb hubs, am I correct in thinking I need to avoid any of the USB OTG versions as they cross over the cables?

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

Fixed it so I now have letterboxing by using config.txt, however I'm left with several ~ along the top and codec info and flashing _ along the bottom?
Any tricks to black them out?

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

Found this to be nice and simple using the deb package, however my Pi is connected to the TV via composite and is 4:3, my videos are MP4 16:9. At the moment it's cropping the edges off, but I want the full picture, is there a setting anywhere to get it to letterbox? Nothing available on the TV itsel...

Re: The new forums are here!

I hate having negative feedback provided to me when launching new designs on websites, but on the pi theme I can't spot links with the text of a post. (Did you see it?)
