    New to RPI 2 and have a few questions !!

    OK here goes, I did try to research this but it still seems confusing, so I figured I'd post here. 1) I had transferred a few Addons on my SD card to install on the RPI using OpenElec, I can't seem the find them, so I assume this is not possible from what I'm told. So for now, do I simply take...

    Restarting and adding back an existing OPENELEC (KODI) configuration

    When I initially set up my Pi 2, I didn't realize that when I tried to swap out my OS I would end up installing two. I only have an 8 GB card and can't buy a new one presently. Currently I have Raspbian and OE installed and have no use for Raspbian. I think I'll be able to reformat my card...

    Combo kit deal?

    I really don't wanna monkey around with buying components from all over the place, so was wondering what you guys thought about this as a starter kit.
