NOOBS and RaspMC

Sat Mar 07, 2015 7:35 pm

I downloaded and installed Noobs 1.4.0 no problem. I selected to install RASPBMC and after it downloaded it said it isn't compatible with Raspberry Pi? Then it wouldn't boot at all. What's up with this?

If you have a RPi2 B then Raspbmc is not compatable, Raspbmc has been replaced by OSMC

The information is out there....you just have to let it in.

Thanks for the rapid response. I just realized that and installed OpenELEC just fine. Hoping this will replace by big and bulky five year old desktop PC that's been acting as my media center.
