I have been testing the raspberrypi as MD for some time now and am loving every second of it.
Phenigma has been doing a awesome job.
imho the rPi has great potential with CEC, its GPIO pins and all the aditional boards one can get for it.
The Pi has been great so far, sometimes it has a hickup in that it doesn't close the playing vid, but all in all, awesome!
No noise what so ever very low power.
Phenigma, thanks so far!
Matt - see my earlier post in this thread re LiveTV etc. But the short answer is you can watch live TV via you actual TV - we provide control of the TV for this purpose and you can also watch live TV via any STB's you have controlled by your system too (either locally in the room or sometimes via a video matrix for a larher install where you have centralised STB's distributed through an HDMI Matrix).
Yes you do loose the Orbiter UI on the TV... but you have it instead on your tablet or smartphone instead. The UI then is right in your hand... and you can switch to any room/device and control it without having any TV's on at all...or turn a TV on from tablet/smartphone if you want to etc etc.
All the best
Both very valid and good points. Being in charge of, and being able to modify, your MD is essentially what i was referring to in my last paragraph. And if you are a VDR user then I can see why loosing that would be a big hit.
