Re: New dedicated category for Games?

I think good idea too. Its always been a bit strange that two completely unrelated subjects have been lumped together.

Maybe more likely to be noticed in the feedback and requests section?

overzealous

I think your are too quick to stifle discussion. Example below http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=17963 Except for title its actually a pretty sensible discussion. You may say it has nothing to do with the foundation but on that basis neither do 99% of the other topics on here. I...

How far did you get? From memory first boot takes quite some time and it goes through an update process. Did it get that far?

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

But using the all-inclusive £99 delivered from Amazon Roku2 cost vs base cost of a model A that's not available and still needs VAT+shipping added is a bit cheeky, but I'll let you off with it this time ;) Opps, yes, you're right. I'd forgotten it was the model A that was $25 :oops: I've spent £46....

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

So again we come back to cost, can we implement a system that's secure enough, cheaply enough that we're not getting into Roku2 territory ? Again, it depends on which side of the swamp you're on. UK Roku2 price is around £99 = $154. Given that the Pi is $25 that means it would need to cost less tha...

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

You can pick up a roku 2 for 79 bucks. It's cased, comes with a remote and a power supply, and can do what you want without any buggering about. I take your point, I'm not sure the price translates that well in the UK though, Roku 2 is £99 at Amazon.co.uk I think I'll quit while I'm behind... I'm b...

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

I don't understand the hostility towards this request. I think he was sort of agreeing with you wasn't he? Wasn't it just a suggestion for policing a way of paying for a license? I agree $70 was a bit steep though :) but I'd be happy to pay extra for a mpeg2 ready version and I'm sure $70 was pluck...

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

If you want an mpeg-2 compatible pvr, there is a large choice of prepackaged ones out there - by the time you factor in the cost of a psu, case, storage, cables, some sort of remote and so on, the pi is probably more expensive and definitely more hassle. I don't want a PVR, I want a media streamer ...

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

I was also expecting that the numbers would be low, although its not showing that way from those who have voted (maybe you can argue that those not interested would not even look at the post in order to vote). I have to say though the options, if you assume that the Pi is never going to work, are pr...

Re: Mpeg 2 poll

Perhaps the point should be phrased this way... *Who* should be the ones to get the license? Surely not the Raspberry Pi Foundation as it's simply not part of what they are set up to do. Equally inappropriate would be RS or Farnell. The entities that should get the license would be (possibly) Broad...

Polls don't look that great in the forum, they could be improved. I'm sure that'll be pretty near the top of the priority list now I have pointed it out ;)

Yes, that was really the idea behind my poll, I wanted to find out how many people would be prepared to pay hence the option to vote at the top of the post.

I also do say in the original post that it would cost money..

You mean you don't think they'd want to sell even more if there was an additional market? Production will catch up one day..

Mpeg 2 poll

I was really excited getting my Pi, I know it probably isn't the use for which it was originally intended, but mine was detined to become a perfect little media player. I enjoyed setting it up as a xbmc box, it is quite impressive, it plays my H264 encoded dvd collection beautifully. But my PVR save...
