Re: OpenELEC - aspect ratio

It forces the aspect for all content as far as I can tell and can't be over-ridden. I have a load of 4:3 content that is stuck with side black bars also.

OpenELEC - aspect ratio

Has anyone managed to get OpenELEC/XBMC on Rpi to change aspect ratios?

The options are there to remove black bars and stretch the image but they all do nothing.

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

I have yet to find a Pi build of OpenELEC which is able to stretch 4:3 content so that it fills a 16:9 screen. This is a very common feature in other media setups. OpenELEC on Pi seems to have an option for it but it does nothing at all.

It's not a new distro but a package and installed easily using the above method.
Have you tested this yourself on Rpi?

I have not encountered any issues so far. Not the fastest but it is great because it has such an incredibly low profile.

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

I have noticed that DLNA no longer works on the newer builds (tried back as far as 11315 for example). I can no longer send video or photo from my Desire HD to Rpi without causing it to lock up requiring the power to be pulled.

I have gone back to 11203 which seems very stable for me.

Re: May be a dumb question about xbmc

XBMC is just a program like any other. It needs an OS/distro.

However, there are some lightweight distros which have XBMC wrapped very tightly into them like OpenELEC or Raspbmc.

Re: miniDLNA for RPi Debian Squeeze

MiniDLNA is a DLNA server app, so you can probably view photos, listen to music from a drive attached to your Pi on your phone... In order to view files from your phone on your tv, you'd need to install a uPNP/DLNA server on your phone, and then use a client (like VLC) on the Pi... I have a Desire ...

Re: sd cards

Oddly the Mushkin 32GB now does not work at all with the Rpi - regardless of distribution - still works fine in my camera and on my PC however.

Very odd behaviour.

Re: miniDLNA for RPi Debian Squeeze

I know that if I had a DLNA TV I would be able to select my TV as the "output" for any video or photos etc that I choose to view via my phone. That is what I'd like to achieve with my RPi - have it appear as a DLNA player on my network.

miniDLNA.

So, if I get this running on my RPi, will I be able to send photos and videos from my phone to my TV? My phone is DLNA compatible of course.

Re: sd cards

T0he Mushkin 32GB from Aria (on the supported list) does not work with any of the OpenELEC builds I have tried.

Works fine with debian6-19-04-2012 but such a pain that OpenELEC is a no go at the moment.

Anyone got any ideas on how to get this working?

Same thing here. I have been working around it by using the left/right and up/down buttons on my MCE remote which move the film 1 min and 5 mins at a time respectively.

I have an old media centre remote (and IR receiver) which came bundled with a Haupage TV card I bought years ago. Works fine right out of the box when running OpenELEC.

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

Has anyone done a case yet where they have moved/replicated all the ports so that they are on one side of the case (like say a typical router). Pi is a bit of a mess with cables sticking out on all sides with the cases we see right now.

I've gone with the lego option for now.
