sub: Sorry - haven't read the whole thread, but can someone tell me the preferred place to buy Raspberry Pi these days, and how long do that take to get to NZ? Also be interested to here whether you got a PSU and case from the same supplier.
I develop some PVR software called NextPVR which runs on Windows, and recently built and released a PVR addon for XBMC. I've only seen it working Windows, but others have started using it with their Raspberry Pi devices in RaspBMC RC5 or OpenELEC, and I'm keen to take a look at how it runs.
hey sub, yeah element14 is best place for raspberrypi, should only take a few days to get to you.
case best place is modmypi.com, element14 takes way too long to ship their case (ordered one a few weeks ago, no case yet)
power supply, ive used the following successfully
- iPhone usb power charger
- Computer usb port
- TV usb port
if you need someone to test nextpvr with the pi let me know, currently using 4tr but would happily switch back to nextpvr if worked on pi.
