Fun With Raspberry Pi, Able-HD monitor as Media Center Using XBMC

Last week I received an email from Able-HD monitor team that my screen is shipped and it’s tracking number. They apologized for being late with the tracking code. When I tracked the shipment it had already arrived in my postbox and been waiting for a week. I went immediately and collected it before they sent it back for not collecting. After collecting I tested using Apple TV and it was gorgeous. The only comment I have to the Able-HD team is the connector is very small, if it was little longer it would have been better placing the driver circuit and the LED screen properly.

Later during the weekend I took my Raspberry Pi and decided to make it a home media center and to use the new screen. After many trials installing XBMC I was successful in running Raspbmc successfully in a decent speed.

I was able to play movies in airplay and it was playing okay.

Verdict: Raspberry Pi needs more memory to buffer 😉
