I'm in Wellington, would like another R.Pi to run Kodi on another TV.  The 2B is fast enough, but wouldn't mind a 3B / 3B+ . Just seeing if anyone has one unused they'd rather have cash for before I order one new.

Got an Odroid C1 here you're welcome to (also based in Wellington). A little bit faster and should do the job fine.

 

Make me an offer if you're keen.

Thanks all. Figured people might have spares they're not using and would rather have a few dollars for.

 

@phrozenpenguin - would be good to see what version it is. Reference here (see image part way down page)
@frankv - thanks - where are you? Don't need wireless so you might be better keeping / selling to someone who needs it.
@michaelmurfy - sounds interesting. Probably err towards R.Pi as I already have two so better to use the knowledge I have, but if it's much the same to use then might not matter. Is it in a case?
@champakram - in a case? Could always mail it down.

Thanks @michaelmurfy, but I think I'll go with R.Pi. Just sounds better supported / understood and I don't have time to mess around. I already understand the Pi ok as I have a couple, one running Kodi and the original running Pi Hole.

there is no "messing about" you install the kodi distro onto the flash/mmc power it on and it boots into kodi, you then configure kodi as normal.

 

its really no different, its just as different singal board computer running the same software ie kodi over linux

I have a set of steps I manually run each time I install Kodi on my R.Pi, to do things like disable CEC. It's an OK level thing. It's easier if I only have one platform where I have to work these things out, between diagnostics and working out fixes. So I appreciate the offer, but think I'll go with a Pi rather the Odroid this time.

Thanks. Model 2B? Maybe PM me what you'd want for it. I don't need WiFi, so you might get more selling to someone who does.

I have a new Pi 3B+ in official Pi red and white case and official power supply which is still in box. Pi only opened and put in case. I can sell for whatever you are going to buy it for minus few dollars.

Thanks for the offer @quebec. I would tend to pay maybe 50 - 60% of the original cost for without a warranty even if it's unused. You want more than that, which is fine, best you hold onto it or sell it to someone else :)

I've got a

 

- Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1 in a case, USB wifi dongle also available

 

- Raspberry Pi Model B+ V 1 2 in a case. Think this has wifi onboard.

 

Doesn't seem like you are short of choice. PM me if interested in either or both of above. I'm in Christchurch so would be putting in a post bag.
