Re: Safe Running Temperature.

<t>WereCatf said: <br/> <br/> <br/> To the OP: I don't think 45C is too much for RPi to operate in, but if you feel like it you should get by with just using passive cooling. You could just get a regular CPU cooler and remove the fan from it, that would already be plenty for RPi. Especially if you g...

<t>PotatoHandle said: <br/> <br/> <br/> Yeah, that's more it; I remember my Pentium III from many, many years ago with similar specs to the Pi, shut down at around 60C; since it's a smaller device I thought it'd be worth making sure it will be alright in that kind of environment. If it doesn't like ...

Re: If the first batch is to stimulate interest in development...

<t>Honestly I have no doubt it will work out no matter what happens, though I wouldn't mind like 10-50 being set aside for people who are able to make killer apps such as XBMC. I'm not sure what qualified XBMC to get early access to the Raspberry Pi but it would be nice if we got more developers lik...

Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

<t>Michael said: <br/> <br/> <br/> Its actually the other way around.  If you want to downmix the Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus or DTS audio to stereo on the R.Pi, you need the appropriate license.  Similarly, if you want to downmix/transcode Dolby Digital Plus or DTS to Dolby Digital you need a...

Re: RaspberryPi Portable as RaspberryPi Model C???

<t>A handheld doesn't exactly lend itself well to typing out code without having a full sized keyboard. I see it fragmenting the market too much, if anything a cheap laptop would make more sense but then that will add tons to the cost.<br/> I think the RaspberryPi team has done a very good job at fo...

Re: NES + Raspberry Pi for retro gaming and media center (Difficulty Moderate)

<t>I'm going to be really interested to see what kind of software you end up using on this. I'm thinking of doing something similar just not putting it in an NES or anything. I just want a cheap media center that can play whatever video file I throw at it and can play some old retro games via emulat...

Re: DOOM3 source code released

<t>If the SLI on the Voodoo cards he is using is anything like todays cards it does not double the VRAM. If you pair up two cards it will be the max amount of the VRAM of the card with the lowest amount, so two cards with 1.5GB and 1GB would only have 1GB of VRAM.<br/> <br/> Also there could be othe...
