Re: FullPageOS - RaspberryPi distro that displays a webpage

Hi @guysoft UPDATE: I just noticed this: https://github.com/guysoft/FullPageOS/issues/92 :) Could you please describe where this project is at now? Is it still alive? The last release on GitHub was around 7 months ago. https://github.com/guysoft/FullPageOS/releases Since then, hasn't the Raspberry P...

Re: 4-Channel Audio - More Difficult Than It Appears?

It's freaky how much I would like an answer to this question as well. There seems to be a lot of people wanting to do a carputer with Raspi but even 4 years or more after Raspi was released, the audio situation in relation to carputers is still a bit tricky. Would it be possible to start a CarPuter ...

Re: [Tutorial] In-Car Raspberry with Wifi Access point - DWA

This tutorial is fantastic! Exactly what I was trying to do. One issue I have not resolved is power-down. If I unplug my Raspbmc it complains that it was not shut down properly. For me, this project isn't overly legitimate without answering that question. That wording may sound more critical than I...

Re: RPi Official Touchscreen - Kodi

Latest Milhouse build has proper touch support (including multi-finger gestures). See: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=231092 Approaching one year later, the official build in the Raspbian repo still lacks proper touch support, if I'm not mistaken, as I just installed it for the first time ...

Re: Volume was not properly unmounted ...

For those running OpenELEC 5.0.8 and who want to get rid of this innocuous but annoying error, thankfully we don't have to worry about git clones and compiling. Lucky that, since OpenELEC doesn't have git or APT available! Fsck is available by default: # fsck fsck from util-linux 2.25.2 Which appear...

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

https://github.com/huceke/omxplayer/blob/master/utils/PCMRemap.cpp It looks like OMXPlayer already checks to see what the output capabilities are. I don't think it hardcodes 2.0 over there. It could be that the check isn't done properly or something, but really this is speculation. There may be an ...

Thanks for the reply, but as I say, bitstreaming (what you just described) works just fine.

Sure hope that we hear from Dolby :/ For those who may not be aware, Dolby Digital (DD) is also known as AC3 and you may find that you already have support for AC3//DD in your HDMI device, particularly if the device is a reasonably new TV.
