Re: Raspberry Pi 512 openelec xbmc movies freeze

If you really are getting nowhere with OpenELEC, try RaspBMC instead. Performance should be near-identical once you get past the slower initial boot-up. http://www.raspbmc.com/download/ thank you very very much :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: your suggestion to use RaspBMC was very good. i run RaspBM...
