Fri Feb 15 2013 08:31:51 PM EST from generica @ UncensoredNetflix finally offers me enough value that I'd consider paying for it.
I'm thinking of canning my subscription. The limited range of selection is starting to bug me a little.
Well when they lost their contract with, Stars was it? They lost a pretty good bit of content.
Thu Apr 18 2013 20:32:25 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar @ UncensoredSo what's the most versatile internet-to-tv hookup these days? Roku? Apple handcuff TV? Google TV? Roll your own on a Pi?
XBMC is clearly the answer.
the newer pi with 512MB ram is probably a cheap and well explored option.
however, just booting a pi-bootimage on the cubieboard did not work. (which has 1g Ram but uses the same SOC - A10 all winner)
I didn't bother to look at the boot of the PI image (which works on one of the older PIs with 256 MBRam) via the serial console.
One main difference between pi and cubie board which might be pro-pi is that the pi also has a FBas chinch plug for elderly TV, the cubieboard just a HDMI port.
If you care, I could have a look at whats going wrong with the xbmc boot image on the cubie board.
I happen to have one of those "elderly" TV's ... a 32" CRT, standard definition.
I also have a 40" LCD with a 720p screen and an older computer built into it, and no, it doesn't seem to work with an external source. I wonder if XBMC can be made to boot on that.
I have a Roku. It's hackable, as I understand, although honestly, I don't watch enough television to make it worthwhile.
hacks for it.
Well, underneath its shiny surface, Linux lurks.
These days my attention span is too short for movies.
