Re: lxpanel

If you just want the media center features, I'd recommend you download and install Raspbmc: [url]http://www.raspbmc.com/[url]. Raspbmc is a Linux distro with XBMC pre-installed and pre-configured, you should be up and running very quickly.

Re: lxpanel

Please provide more information, what are you trying to do? LXPanel is the program that runs the bar at the bottom of the screen, managing the application menu in the bottom-left corner and the applets in the bottom-right corner.

PulseAudio is simple to install, just install the "pulseaudio" package: sudo apt-get install pulseaudio After installing, reboot. If I remember correctly, no further configuration is necessary. You'll also probably want to install Pulseaudio Volume Control, provided by the "pavucontrol" package, and...

Re: Downmix to mono question

You can list all the sound devices on your system with the command: aplay -l (I'm pretty sure aplay comes with Rasbpian, if not install the alsa-utils package) You'll get a few lines like: card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1] In this example, this is device 7 on card 0, which would...

Re: Trade-offs between RaspPi and Arduino

The Ethernet/USB hub chip in the Model B is the reason the Model B uses more power than the Model A, if you need Ethernet then you're better off with the Model B. Since you mentioned Wi-Fi in your original post I assumed you would use it to transfer the data. The Raspberry Pi and the Arduino are two...

Re: Trade-offs between RaspPi and Arduino

It sounds like the Raspberry Pi or a similar full-fleged computer would be the way to go, using a USB webcam with an Arduino and streaming the video would be difficult. You'd need to write the driver (unless there's one already), write a highly efficient video transcoder and streamer, and have to fi...

The "screen" program only works with console (i.e. text-based) applications, not with graphical programs like XBMC. What are you trying to accomplish? You can probably do what you want with other tools.

The first will list all of your Pi's network interfaces, the second will list the capabilities of any wireless network interfaces, and the third will list all the kernel modules (drivers, basically) currently loaded.

Re: Power down/Autoboot use with Openelec/tv

Given how little power the Pi consumes, I'd just leave it on all the time. I haven't tried OpenElec, but RaspBMC (another XBMC distro) does log in automatically. OpenElec's website appears to be down so I haven't been able to research further.
