Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I'm looking for something dead simple for my MIL. She's currently staying with us and is struggling with Mediaportal and a Harmony 885. She finds the remote daunting even though we only use half a dozen of the buttons and everything is set up with activities, etc.

I've been wondering if a pi, xbmc, an external drive and remote like this could be an easier solution.

Can it be as simple as 'press the power button', the tv and pi start and away you go selecting tv series and controlling the volume, or do you need to switch between IF and RF to control each of them ?

the motorola remote has IR for tv (with learning) and RF for xbmc (you push one button at the top to switch between them).

you basically shouldnt turn off the pi, it can take 30seconds or so to boot up, and that would annoy most users. and its really low powered so i never worried about leaving it on.

my parents (around 60yo), were using xbmc just fine.

its a stable now, it does reboot every once in a while, but it boots back up without you needing to do much. you might need to do some maintenance on it every so often, i havent had to do anything in the last 6 months. just been in my kids room.

Does the PI support 1080 output? Any issues playing back common internet sourced 720p and 1080p material?

Does the PI have an analogue audio output?

Cheers

There is a standard 3.5mm jack for audio out to an amplifier. You can add any supported USB microphone for audio in, or using the I2S interface you can add a codec for additional audio I/O.

ive only ever used HDMI audio myself.

ive played back 1080p MKVs/mp4, 720p MKVs/mp4 without issues many many many times. ive streamed hulu on it which i think was 720p.

it has very great video playback capabilities. cant remember the last file i had an issue with. might have been divx3 (thats very old, and hasnt been widely used in 10+ years).
