Setting Up Your Raspberry Pi For Headless Use With SSH The Raspberry Pi is – as we’ve seen in several previous articles – an extremely flexible piece of hardware. Once you’ve installed an operating system, got to grips with the small dimensions, and found a case for it, you’ll be able to install media centre software and perhaps even begin programming software (after all, that’s what it was designed for!). However, you might find that the business of plugging the Raspberry Pi into your big screen plasma TV – the only device in your house with a HDMI connection – is a bit tiresome while your family is watching their favourite show.

HDHomeRun Having an HDHomeRun box on your network allows you to watch Live TV directly from XBMC. 1 What is HDHomeRun? HDHomeRun by SiliconDust is a stand-alone networked TV/HDTV tuner box available in two models, one ATSC (American market) model and one DVB-T/DVB-C model (Europe/Australia/New Zealand/Taiwan). Sync multiple XBMC media libraries including Raspbmc If you have more than one XBMC installation on your network, centralising your media library has many benefits: Your watched / unwatched statuses are shared between media centresYou can watch a video in one room and continue watching it in another – without needing to find your place (in theory :))You only have one library that needs to be updated The basic steps towards setting this up: Make sure all your media is shared so that it is available to all PC’s on your networkChange all the paths in your media library to point to the shares instead of a local file systemSet up a MySQL server that contains your library data that all your XBMC installations can connect toConfigure all your XBMC installations to use the MySQL server for it’s library data The process is very well documented on the XBMC wiki, but there is one very important point to note – and this is especially relevant if you are using Raspbmc on a Rasperry Pi – Your XBMC versions must all be the same!

raspberry_pi [ PIRATEBOX] PirateBox is an anonymous offline mobile file-sharing and communications system built with free software and inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware.

Install PirateBox Stuff You'll Need Python with Arduino LESSON 16: Simple Client Server Configuration over Ethernet In the previous lessons we have seen that powerful analytic and graphic programs can be written that allow data taken from the arduino to be displayed on a PC via Python. We have shown how the arduino can be connected to a PC by either a serial cable or Xbee radios. To fully unleash the power of the arduino, it can be set up as a server, and connected to a network via Ethernet. In this lesson, we will show how to set the arduino up as a server which is controlled and queried by clients on PC’s on the same network.

Watching live TV on a Raspberry Pi using a HDHomerun  UPDATE: I have now got this working all on the Raspberry Pi without needing the ipad -> see this post Getting live TV on the Raspberry Pi has eluded my so far, I have tried various ways and nothing has worked but that was until the Raspberry Pi foundation released the mpeg-2 decoder. The HDHomerun uses mpeg-2 so thought there would be a good chance it should work on the Pi with XBMC. So using the Raspbmc build of XBMC I added the HDHomerun video stream as a source in XBMC and to control the HDHomerun I used an app I have previously tested on the iPad called TV Streamer.

How to Automatically Download TV Shows as Soon as They've Aired (or Turn Your PC into a TiVo) Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.

Raspberry Pi Network Chat in Python » Myself and @ryanteck (Mr Rastrack) ran some Raspberry Pi workshops this week. I put together a simple network chat application between two Pi’s to demonstrate how easy it can be to build a network aware application. We ran some workshops this week at a College, to train up students to be facilitators at an event we will soon be running for school children. Android Transporter for the Nexus 7 and the Raspberry Pi The Android Transporter allows you to share the display contents of your Nexus 7 tablet wirelessly with other screens in real time.
