Is it possible to get the breakout board thing as a separate part? Or do you have to buy it in the Dev Kit?

Wondering if I can get a bit of help from you guys...
All of a sudden I'm having a hell of a time trying to create a bootable sd card for my Raspberry Pi, I've made several RasPlex clients and 2 RetroPi ones before but somehow I just can't get this one to work...

I downloaded the latest RetroPi image (Pi2 and Pi3 version going into a Pi2), unzipped it and then mounted it via Win32 Disc Imager I've tried 3 different SD cards and can't get it to boot...

I've pulled both a working RetroPi and Rasplex SD card from 2 other Pis and it boots perfectly in the Pi I'm trying to build... I'm at a loss, can anyone offer any suggestion?

Looks like I've found the issue...
Seems to be a problem with my tablet... I was writing the SD card with my tablet's SD card slot (as previously). I ended up rewriting the card with my NUC and it works perfectly...

What a strange problem to have!

I have a raspberry pi model b laying around and wondering what i can use this for. I originally had raspbmc but a couple of years back i upgraded to the pi2 with osmc.

Would the original pi1 model b run the retropi emulator too slow or have slow downs during play?

Is there anything else fun to play around with for someone that does not have advanced skills in coding or terminal/command line skills?

80's games and 8 bit titles are no problems with a first gen Pi, single core.

90's games and 16bit titles prefer a newer multi-core Pi2 or Pi3 (not so much the multi-core itself, but those Pis were a newer architecture, had hardware floating point, better performance per clock cycle, and could run a little faster without problems).

Can just play with the emulators on your PC to start with if you want?

Raspberry Pi (across all models) has officially beaten the Commodore 64 (across all variants) to become the third best selling personal computer platform of all time:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/raspberry-pi-sales/

Apple Mac and "IBM Compatible" x86 PC of course come in #2 and #1 respectively.

Not to shabby for the young Pi. Give it a while and I'm sure they'll top the entire Commodore/Amiga family.

I picked up a Pi3 Kit a few weeks ago from Logicware to build a media player from. I had some questions before purchasing which they replied incredibly quickly and helpfully. They're based in WA, happy to help an Oz business, even though it's a few bucks more than some of the other international sellers.

Worth noting that some of their kits include heatsinks and fans installed, which save trouble of sourcing your own if you are planning to run intensive tasks.

Could you make any recommendations for which kit might be best suited for this purpose?

I know it says Pi2 and the kits you've linked are Pi3 but ideally, I'd like to buy a kit with enough upfront expense/grunt to last me awhile

Personally, I would just opt for the Pi 3 for a few reasons - It has onboard wifi/BT, is significantly faster than the Pi 2, supports 64-bit instructions and isn't that much more expensive that I've seen. Somebody feel free to correct me as I'm going off memory. Plus, if you ended up keeping the unit for a while, having the extra capability there to use it for other projects in the future without having to worry about performance is nice.

I was reading a benchmark comparison of different boards the other day (http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...march-2017-arm), the Pi 3 falls around the middle or so, but I think for a beginner like me, the huge community and abundance of addons makes it worthwhile.

As for the task you've linked, I'm unfamiliar with nodes, but this thread and this comment in particular might be worth reading - https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/com...de_on/czkuinh/

Thanks for the advice. Its more economical and environmentally friendly to have a Pi or two running than a full desktop machine. I'll plan a purchase accordingly

Anyone built a multi IP camera viewer with their Pi? I'm not wanting NVR functions, just want a way to do realtime viewing of my cameras on TV.
