    I have just finished watching "tricks of the trade" on BBC2, using nothing more than a screen, a Raspberry PI, and some internet....

    But any "good" pc with xbmc on will also work.....

    I will make a guide tomorrow. Quite simple actually...

    Edit1: The guide is in post number 33.

    Edit2: I have to give credit where it needs to go.

    During the course of this thread, I start to mention "THE OUTERNET" I was introduced to the outernet by Amatokka, a forum memeber that is not active here anymore, either way, If he is active or not, he is the reason I know about the outernet...

    I have a 512 line, I paused for 5 minutes, and played. No problems, accept for some artifacts here and there, mostly due to the line speed...

    It will just cache, but as soon as you go away from the channel, it clears the cache.

    Raspberry pi only needs a micro sd memory card... if you run the bare minimum, the model b+ will happily run off the usb of the tv....

    I will have to get a class 10 memory card though.... to speed up the PI..

    Try OpenElec for the Pi, it is pretty quick and responsive.

    Oh awesome. Yes, it runs xbmc as its shell, just find that the underlying os is so light it really helps with low power devices. Have you seen the matchstick on kickstarter?

    Arch linix is really light! I have a couple of RPIs at home, the model b+ is vey nice, with all the plugs and whatever all lined up, and working of the msd...I have 2 at work as well. The 2 at work I run screenly, for media display boards! Works a treat, accept that if the name of a picture is Chinese, it will just skip it...

    I tried running 2 rpis in a cluster, but I failed terribly. The main never brings op the second one... plus, its a pretty useless computer if clustered...

    But regarding openelec, and addons, I did find some addons are not supported. But fir streaming purposes, we will not need the addons that comes from xbmc scunkworks...

    You can try the 1channel video addon for xbmc. If you're connection is good for it, you'll have more streaming TV than you can ever watch..

    I tried using the streaming on the raspberry but sometimes it is just to slow and don't like it. xbmc and the license issue is not for me. I like my player to play any format without any conversion.

    So I switch over to home automation with mine, created a appahe server where I use buttons to activate the pins. Connected the pins to a wifi remote relay module and use the relay module to turn on appliances.
