Re: iMac style case

Let me start by saying i am not an electrician. The cable that powers your monitor is probably, i am still not an electrician, sufficiant to carry a little more current than your monitor needs.... So solder the wires that power your hub transformer to the inside of the monitor where the cable plugs ...

I found that heating it over the cooker and then cuttin/melting a little smaller than needed then using a sharp unburnt knife to shave/wittle...

Re: Android/iOS remote control device

Hello,

If you plan on using xbmc variants it is easily controlable over lan. There are remote apps available for android and iphone already and they work very well.

As for your wireless adapter I guess yoh will have to try it. Mine worked. Fine plugged directly inti my pi.

Re: I am really suprised My Samsung TV remote can control XB

Bloody hell!!! It is magic. I have an lg tv, every time it spewed out the info about cec i thought it was something to do with tv card.

Same on lg can navigate through menus and select things with the ok button but there is no response from the back button. The magic has failed.

Re: Berryboot v1.1 - Boot menu / OS installer

I just found out that it does actually boot from the sdcard after looking for the usb stick, it boots around three times but then loads whatever you have installed to the sd.

Re: Berryboot v1.1 - Boot menu / OS installer

If you want to use USB storage, you will need to reinstall Berryboot, and select during installation that you want to store all data on the USB stick. In that case only the Berryboot system files will be installed on the SD card, and everything else will be on the USB stick. Having some operating s...

Hello it is a case for an ipod shuffle, the little square one.

I really can't get over how well it fits, it is like it was made to measure, I mean perfectly! Like I said I can't get over it. :-)
