Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

I think, that http://openelec.thestateofme.com/ is good place for actual compilation. Also http://sparky0815.de/openelec-download-images-fat-files/ is good place if you are lookin for sd card images. There are 900M SD card images (intended to fit onto any SD card with a nominal capacity >1G) on the...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

It has gone very quiet. A lot of the action has moved to the OpenELEC Testbuilds thread, but the last few days have been quiet on the OpenELEC front - no updates coming through on git. I'd also note that the last update my build box got didn't build (I killed it after over a day of running the buil...

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

Would it be possible to decrease te size of the 2gb image? Doesn't want to write to a 2gb toshiba sd card cuz it comes a few bytes short. If images are made from actual SD cards then this can too easily happen (unless you happen to have a card that's at the small end of the stated size). That's why...

Re: Installing OpenElec using Windows

It's pretty easy to install OpenELEC from Windows. All you need is the Win32DiskImager tool (the same one you'd use to write any other RPi image to SD card) and an OpenELEC image (I have a script that builds 900MB images to fit onto almost any SD card, though you'll need Linux if you want to reparti...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

I've a simple question. I've red that raspberry PI can decode h264 video using its GPU. But if i have an AVI (with for example divx @ 640x480), can Raspberry decode it? Or there isn't sufficent CPU power? I won't dive into the technical details of DivX (or Xvid ) vs. MPEG4 vs. H.264 as that's cover...

That's the great thing about having an automated build. They just pop up there even when I'm busy on other stuff :)

I should probably set up some kind of alert so that I know when new ones are done.

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Anybody else having problems with audio on AirPlay with r11264?

I've tested AirPlay audio in the past, and it's worked fine, so it seems that there has been some sort of regression.

Oddly AirPlay video seems fine with r11264 (at least from AVPlayer HD).

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

r11232 image (should fit on 1GB SD) and release bundle available for download. I'll drop subsequent ones as I make them onto the same server . Does this include the passthrough fix mentioned in the test builds thread? I'd don't know for sure, but given the timings I'd say it's highly unlikely.

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

For those using VirtualBox or similar it might be easier to configure a small second hard disk as a fake SD card for the purpose of creating images rather than putting up with the slower IO to a real SD card. I did a blog post with more details on this approach.

Using dd to copy the card, it makes no difference if I make the partition smaller, its making a copy of the card..... including unused space.. To make my smaller image I first made a smaller ext4 partition for storage. I then used count= option on dd to limit the number of 1M blocks. In my case I l...

I took my own advice and made a smaller image that fits onto a 2GB card.
