Re: [PLUG] EXTERNAL: Re: Open Streaming Media Box



I purchased a few Raspberry PIs in the hopes of replacing the big hunking PCs near my TVs running XBMC.


I got XBMC installed on the SD card, the PI boots up on it, updates itself, etc, but XBMC seems to be slow and buggy.


So I am wondering if your XBMC on the Raspberry PI performs acceptably??


I apologize if this is an off topic forum question.

I just set up a Raspberry PI at home using an XBMC distro.  This streams files over NFS of SFTP and a bunch of other protocols.  Works best with h264 encodings but it can slog through other formats.  And it's only $30.


I'd be interested in your final setup, I have a similar (but very low priority) issue at work.

Does anyone know if there are any Linux powered set-top boxes similar to Roku or Apple TV that let you stream media to a TV? I'm looking for something that is open enough that I can configure it to open a pre-configured stream on startup and start dumping it out the A/V ports.


The idea is to create a streaming appliance to send out to our school districts so they can play our live streams into their district wide closed circuit TV systems.
