Raspberry Pi, XBMC 12 — and more!

February 16th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Raspi_Colour_RThis has actually been working for a while, but time to make an official announcement. We’ve successfully ported GeeXboX to the Raspberry Pi board! This includes full OpenGL ES acceleration for XBMC, 1080p HD video hardware decoding and HDMI-CEC support. There’s no official release yet, but in the meantime you can try one of the latest snapshots from the development tree (and head over to the documentation for install instructions). In other news, you will notice that the snapshots now feature the recently released XBMC 12.0 ‘Frodo’, which includes the AudioEngine with HD audio support, including DTS-MA and Dolby True-HD, and is the first release to officially support Live TV and PVR.

Finally, we’re going to demo these latest GeeXboX updates at the Technical Showcase during this year’s Embedded Linux Conference (ELC 2013) in San Francisco on February 20-22. We’ll have working demos of the latest GeeXboX running on several systems, including CuBox, Raspberry Pi, PandaBoard, and more. If you’re in town, come say hi and see what we’re working on!

    Nice job guys! I tested it, controlling geexbox directly from the tv controller thanks to CEC is awesome!

    Can you upload an IMG or ISO file?
    I use a Windows PC and I can burn a SD card using Win32DiskImager.

    @Montekuri
    I’m trying to use the script direct from the Raspberry Pi, using a SD to USB adapter. So, the SD card is at /dev/sda1.
    But I have no success with the script. This is part of the erro message:
    “Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disklabel”

    Ok, I solved it! Raspbian OS has no mkfs.vfat. I installed dosfstools and the script worked!
    sudo apt-get install dosfstools

    And I used /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1

    FYI: no need to reply unless you want me to test something: been testing the 20130503 build and so far I have not been able to get LiveTV using VDR or TVHeadend backends to work. I looks like this is due to the /dev/dvb/ directory and everything under it is missing. I will test the 20130509 build and let you know if the problem still exists.
