Good shout using the phone as the interface, as usual I am trying to overcomplicate things!PhatFil wrote: ↑Wed Sep 19, 2018 1:32 amIf your relying on online resources such as netflix bbc etc i think you would be much better served with a chromecast stick and your mobile phone as an interface device, quick n easy to test/check within distance selling return periods.. . Imho a Pi media centre would shine with a local repository of media supplemented with online resources.
Pi putres are fantastic multi purpose devices but when it comes to watching hidef videos in a browser the fact its a £30 computer becomes apparent. slow laggy and stuttery, when compared to the performance of your average laptop. granted im basing my views on a pi 3b and not the latest incarnation
when travelling beyond the reach of wifi signals however a pi media centre with a terabyte disk full of mood music and video could be very useful.. and again for an interface use your phone to access the pi for your user interface, Making the diy pi/touchscreen device robust enough for drunken handeling @ 2am in the dark??.. most diy projects when complete need tender loving handling at least until rev 3 or 4
