Andrew I fail to see how adding an RPi costs only $35 and find this suggestion to be very misleading to the point of this being false advertising.
The pi itself cannot be cannot be acquired for $35. The pi itself is $35USD + taxes and shipping, this comes to greater than $50CDN dollars for a pi in hand. An SD card is required ~$10, a power supply is required ~$10, an additional license is required ~$100 (something you fail to mention above). So with taxes and shipping and the required additional pieces adding an RPi2 MD or UPnP Media Player costs upwards of ~$170USD each. That is a *very* far from your suggestion of $35 to add an MD.
Just a query about the above FAQ.
Q: Will a Dianemo-Rpi2 Core/NC support a local MD & HDMI audio?
While the Rpi2 hardware will definitely support HDMI audio we do not currently plan to support MD functionality on the Core/NC itself. We don't think the performance will be adequate (we may revise this if tests prove performance is not a problem). But since adding another Rpi2 as an MD or as a UPnP Media player is simple and only costs an additional $35 USD we feel that’s an acceptable limitation.
will there be a different image for the Rpi2 as an MD? Will this license cover the Rpi2 as UPnP Media player?
