Raspberry Pi + XBMC = great hacking fun

Raspberry Pi

 

After months of hearing about this device from blogs and on reddit, I finally was able to get my hands on one of these devices from my coworker.  I spent the better part of yesterday trying to get Raspbmc, a linux distribution based on XBMC on my device and for something that cost $35 dollars, I’m tremendously impressed with how well it’s performing.  That’s not to say that there aren’t any flaws (you can’t really change the fact that the device is, and always will be slow) but it’s definitely a fun project for anyone that’s interested in stepping their linux game up.

 

Canucks game on SportsDevil

I was able to get everything up and running and was able to stream some of the canucks game using the SportsDevil add-on.

 

Highly recommended!
