So I have a spare Raspberry Pi Zero at home from a failed DIY project, I was contemplating reusing this as the frontend for my media center, the frontend would only be used for Kodi (OSMC) and streaming PC games via moonlight.
I've managed to get OSMC installed and working over Wi-Fi - Recordings still need to be tested.
I've also managed to get moonlight installed as well, but the zero is struggling to stream content, I think its the Wi-Fi but wanted to get feedback.
Using Wi-Fi and Xbox controller - Struggles to stream content
Using Wi-Fi and wired mouse - Struggles to stream content, but slightly better than when using an Xbox controller
I've then tried using a wired connection using a Targus USB Hub with Ethernet (http://www.targus.com/uk/usb-3_0-hub-wi ... -ach122euz
) - The streaming looks good, but unfortunately none of the USB devices work, I'm assuming the hub isn't compatible with a Pi.
I'm thinking options are:
1.) Buy a supported USB/Ethernet hub, but all the ones I have seen aren't powered
2.) Buy a supported powered USB hub, then try and use Wi-Fi (Not sure this will work)
3.) Buy a powered USB hub and separate USB to Ethernet converter
4.) Try and find a supported USB/Ethernet hub that is powered
5.) I have heard that the Google Chromecast Ethernet Power cable is supported by Raspberry Pi: https://store.google.com/product/ethern ... chromecast
Any feedback/advice would be appreciated
