Raspberry Pi, XBMC 12 — and more!
This 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!
