What is the Power Supply you are using with the Pi ?Uk2us88 wrote:Thanks got everything I need. I went with the openlec and it's working. Only problem now is when I add my external hdd to the rasberry pi, meaning plugging into the USB port it boots however everything stops responding.
Do I need to format the hdd anyway? It's a wd passport if that matters
Power Supply you need a quality one with at least 5V 1A and then measure TPi - TP2 voltage as per:Uk2us88 wrote:Micro USB. I noticed that it "reboots" when plugging the drive in as well.
Yes, XBMC (the basis of RaspBMC and OpenELEC) supports adding servers as media sources.rowdy_white tiger wrote:I'm currently building a raspberry pi media server. I also wanted to try and build a raspberry pi media player. In the end i saw that you specifically wanted it to run off of a hdd, but my plan/ experiment is to connect the Pi media player to the server. Do you think that the interface of OpenELEC could support a function such as connecting to a server?
Actually... I plugged the HDD directly to the RPi and it worked fine!masterluke wrote:Yes both NTFS and FAT32 will work fine.
No I don't think a "Y" usb cable will help. You will probably need either a powered USB drive, or a powered USB hub.
