Windows Installation Windows installation is very simple and works on Windows 2000 / XP, Vista and Seven. First, fetch the Windows installer from this link here and extract the contents to a folder. Next up, run the program called “setup.exe”, you may receive a UAC prompt if running Vista or later. This is because the Raspbmc installer needs to run as an Administrator on your system to write to the SD card at block device level. Raspbmc's HDMI-CEC to Control XBMC with your TV remote Edit: Raspbmc RC4 now has CEC enabled out of the box – No need to enable the XBMC web server. It uses the newer libCEC which has significantly better support for different manufacturer CEC-based implementations, so chances are it will work just fine with your CEC-enabled TV. CEC is a specification that allows control of CEC-enabled devices that are attached through HDMI. Raspbmc has included a basic implementation of CEC in version RC3, meaning you can now control your Raspberry Pi installation from your CEC-enabled TV remote (well in theory, anyway). You’ll need a CEC-enabled TV or amplifier that is connectioned to your Raspberry Pi via the HDMI connector.

Setting up OpenELEC on the Raspberry Pi It’s been a while but I have got OpenELEC happily working on my Raspberry Pi. I want to use this blog post to work through some of the issues I had and how I solved them. What is OpenELEC, well: “OpenELEC is a streamlined Linux distribution that includes only the essential software components and drivers needed to run XBMC and a handful of supporting apps/services” OpenELEC itself was originally designed for other platforms and is currently in the process of porting its software over to Raspberry Pi, therefore it is in a constant state of change. If you encounter an issue it would be advised to check the bug reports and possibly add your own where appropriate.
