Because of course it is.
Nice little custom block on that thing. Ridiculous, but nicely done.
What a waste too. I got the original Pi's running in up to 35c greenhouses without any issue
For sure. I think its more of a case of can it be done, not should or has to be.
How does your unit deal with the humidity?
So will the 3's be capable of playing uncompressed blu-ray style files (MKV's) over HDMI?
It seems to hardware decoding is there for the video, I'm just concerned about the audio (7.1 DTS-HD passthrough), and network capability. I know the 3's support wireless "n", but that doesnt mean they'll get 150Mbit or 300Mbit, and a raw blu-ray stream is often greater than 100Mbit.
It's so cool seeing all the projects people do with these things...
Registering interest in a Pi 2 B with case if anyone is selling.
Sweet, thanks. All I wanna do is distribute DAB over the network so I don't have the TripleJ delay issue. Nothing more annoying than streaming JJJ while getting dressed etc and then putting on the FM radio in my helmet to ride to work and having to listen to the same segments again.
I've found a dedicated DAB module which looks like it might be fun to try and integrate. Skips the use of a separate DAB radio over 3.5mm jack and all the power requirements for it.
Yeah - I love seeing what other people do. I wish I could just complete a single project
They are in IP67 cases, so just fine.
My RPi3 just showed up.
Just spotted this thread and purchased one to retire my Pi V1... Bluetooth and wi-fi make it a lot cleaner for my home theatre usage... (just an HDMI cable out)
I know that the raspberry pi isn't designed to be used as a computer but for the same price you could get a computer with a power cable, a mouse, a key board, a video cable and an OS already installed.
The raspberry pi 3 may only be $56 from RS (still not cheap) but you still need the SD card and all the other stuff.
And 20x the size and power usage.
Yeah that's a good point. What I was trying to say was that for the same price, you could get a real computer.
but do I want a full-sized computer sitting behind my TV on the wall or a little box that fits nicely and can have the power run up through the 'hole in the wall' behind it...
Yep. Got an old Pi scraping temperature and other data. sfa power usage. Ideal for the job.
Got my RPi3 up and running with OpenELEC. Snappier than the old RPi2.
Will have to give some H.265 content a try and see how it goes.
Hopefully the H265 goes you well. I haven't seen a lot of it though. I don't think it'll be prevelant any time soon.
So how many do you have for sale?
Where's the best place to buy this from? Keen to get one as a low power/low heat streaming device.
Do they play well with windows? Is it possible to put windows on it?
H.265 is still a no go. Just tested it with some high bit rate 1080p. Much better than the RPi2, but still not enough grunt.
Probably can do H.265 720p, but i don't current have any to test it with.
Maybe things will improve with better Kodi support.
Generally Element14 Au, but at the moment, wherever you can get stock. I bought mine from here at a price premium.
Windows is a no go (Well there is Windows 10 IoT, but its not a desktop environment). Your best option is Raspbian, or other Linux distro.
Nope, no GPU support. It's gonna suck.
Yup. H.264 and VP9 are your only options.
