    720p ROM playback 1080 videos?

    Hi there, I just recently purchased an android box (waiting for delivery) and plan on loading a custom ROM that is set at 720P. What I am asking is if anyone knows whether or not my 1080p videos will output at 1080 within XBMC? I would think that it wouldn't but since Android is very new to...

    OpenElec and Wireless tip

    So after doing some tests on my pi (with the help of Lambda) I have come across something very interesting. If you're running OpenElec and a wireless dongle with your pi, open up the OE config program and make sure that your "Active Wired Connection" is disabled. I had this enabled (it is by...

    Android box recommendation??

    So basically I have a raspberry pi which I use as my daily driver and an OUYA that I use once in a while to tinker with and play some NES Roms. The wifi performance is too poor on the OUYA to make it my main media player. I've been seeing an influx of a bunch of new Android boxes and wanted to...

    Raspberry Pi model B+

    Just an FYI that there is a new Raspberry Pi model that was just released. http://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/#introducing-raspberry-pi-model-b-plus I think the best change IMO is the microSD card slot. No more bulky SD card sticking out the end. This will prevent the slots from being...

I have found out that this is also the script.module.playbackengine. I click on yes to disable but it does not seem to keep it disabled because...

    Change DNS in OpenElec

    I have a question regarding changing the DNS within OpenElec. I've been reading some information about Conman taking care of the DNS settings for OE. If I were to change it to 8.8.8.8 within OE netowrk settings, will it keep the new DNS settings? I've heard different answers on this. I have...

    Has this happened to you? - warped SD card

    So I had a couple pi's that stopped working recently and so I thought initially that the SD cards became corrupt. After formatting and loading a new image onto the cards, the pi's still wouldn't boot. I grabbed a brand new SD card, programmed it and it worked on both units. I took a closer...

    USB stick recommendations

    I am thinking about moving my SD card install of OE over to a USB 3.0 stick to test out the speed and performance increase that I hear about. My question is, which USB 3.0 stick should I use? I see people have great results with the Transcend Jetflash(?) 700 stick. Are there others that are...

    Overclock question

    Does increasing core_freq make a big impact in performance on the pi? I am currently using the default OC settings based on Tuxen's image and have played around with increasing arm_freq and I notice a little bit of an improvement but nothing major (went up to 900). Just curious if increasing...
