Re: Bittorrent Sync on RPi

From the bittorrent sync forums, it sounds as though you install just as per any other linux installation.

Reports have been that it uses a fair whack of the Pi's CPU, but I guess that's to be expected.

Re: Bittorrent Sync on RPi

I had a quick look on the bittorrent sync forums yesterday on this - there did appear to be some people who had it working on raspbian. I am contemplating a photo storage system comprising two (initially) pi's: Pi 1 - Owncloud server and Bittorrent Sync. Photos from my smartphone and tablet would be...

Re: BBC Radio-4-Matic

or, indeed, could you use the dials on the front to somehow set the delay?

Re: BBC Radio-4-Matic

What a great idea. Have you considered hooking up a GPS dongle to get your location so that the time delay can change itself based on where you are? i.e. if you move, it would automatically pick up the right delay to use?

Re: MPEG-2 practical solution(s)

thanks - i keep checking out the progress on decoding the mpeg2s with interest. to be honest, that's partly why ive buried my head in the sand with regards getting any transcoding done. I really should get it sorted though - got a pi hooked up in one room for mpeg-4s and above (its mostly kids stuff...

Re: Thoughts on possible setup?

If you are after a dedicated media machine (i.e. to do nothing else), then you're better off looking at one of the "Openelec" builds (have a look through the forums). These give you an interface that it designed for media center. One issue I think you might find is that when you rip your DVDs to the...

Re: Metal cases and the wisdom of them

I agree - my initial thought is that you're asking for trouble.

There's nothing wrong (IMHO) with a bit of lego - insulating, and perfectly sized!

Re: SD Card slot replacement

if you have a look, there's a thread somewhere in the "power users" section about someone who replaced the sd slot with a micro sd adapter. He basically soldered short lengths of wire from the existing slot to a micro sd to sd adapter. It could be that this is the easiest/most practical solution for...

Re: MPEG-2 practical solution(s)

great, thanks - that looks like the thing I need for recordings. It will be interesting to see how this interacts with the xbmc plugin - I imagine this will move the xbmc part of the setup to just being "schedule recordings", with any viewing done via the "TV Shows" page (so long as I can rename the...

Re: MPEG-2 practical solution(s)

Been thinking about this some more, and one possible answer may lie in XBMC itself... http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Import/Export_library According to this, if you export a library, then you get an xml file containing (amongst others) <fileinfo> <streamdetails> <video> <codec>h264</codec> <as...

MPEG-2 practical solution(s)

Hi Like many, I'm using a Pi as a media pc, based on Openelec. I have a large collection of media, including a whole host of file formats that I've ripped over the years. Included in this media collection are quite a few mpeg-2's - mainly where I've just ripped a whole DVD to the HDD either as vob f...
