I formatted an 8GB SD card and then used Win 32 imager to install DEbian 6. I then downloaded OpenELEC from a forum link then used Win 32 imager to install it on to the same sd card.After plugging it in/starting up the system took about twenty seconds (Holding breathe mode ) then sprung in to action flawlessly playing media files. Works a treat. disconnected the keyboard and plugged in a 16GB memory stick full of files and it played my Modern Family shows (Legitimate) perfectly. Newie I know but if I can think of any thing I have missed I will edit my post. Great wee media center that I hope my grandson/duaghters will help me with in my dotagejasperthedog wrote:I am planning on using my Rpi as a sort of media center (preferably for streaming football, or youtube videos) and while browsing the forum heard of something called xbmc, which (if I understood correctly) would maybe allow me to do this. I just have a few questions (being a complete newcomer):
1) What is it (no need for a complicated answer!)?
2) How can I install it on my Pi
3) How would i "use" it?
I would be extremely grateful for answers to these questions, and I am sure someone will help me out since everyone here seems so helpful
The first step isn't necessary - you've not "installed OpenELEC to the same card", you've actually overwritten the Debian6 install with the OpenELEC install. Minor point, but I just wanted to avoid any confusion.Choagy wrote:I formatted an 8GB SD card and then used Win 32 imager to install DEbian 6.
