Re: Is the Pi suitable as a true media centre?

To be short, actually not at the moment. I beg to differ .... have you not seen the xbmc threads? Yes I have seen, but I was talking about standard soft provided by the Foundation. Actually I did not want to be hostile. I am a big fan o Raspberry Pi :) The hardware is fine, we just have to wait for...

It works, but if I set the volume to max on tv than the sounds gets crappy as the speakers start making an anoying noise.

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

Hi guys, I followed the steps you described and installation of omxplayer was succesful. The video plays well, however there is now sound :( What could be wrong?
P.S. The sound module is working and I have sound when playing mp3 songs with the moc player.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Audio in terminal - Debian

Hi :) For playing music in console you should install a console audio player. Mplayer is also a console player. I have tried about 6 console players. They all do not work. From your error log, it seems that the sound driver is not loaded. Try "lsmod" and reply the result here. P.S. The pl...

Re: Audio in terminal - Debian

Hi :)
For playing music in console you should install a console audio player. I am currently using MOP.
Also keep in mind that sound driver should be loaded before you start the player.
For that, just type "sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835".

Best Regards,
Marcel
