My bluetooth mouse

My bluetooth mouse

This is simple, but done so rarely that I forget. Use the tablet to enter pairing mode, [maybe] press the button underneath the mouse, the tablet will ‘find’ the mouse, press the button underneath the mouse for good measure to confirm the pair, and that’s it.

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi

I bought a Raspberry Pi to act as a Media Server in the home. I bought a PI, case, SD card and power source. As ever here are my notes. Currently, getting started (or 1st boot), 1st customisations, and early days with the media browsers and XBMC/Kodi. I have BBC, ITV and YouTube working, Channel 4 is going to be very hard and so is Sky, since among other things since Silverlight is deprecated.

I have given up, and bought a Roku stick. In addition to the challenges of getting all the channels I want, even v3 of the Pi struggles with iplayer HD; it might be the CPU, it might be the BT broadband plus speed but it’s too hard. I shall reconstruct the page and use comments, as one of the purposes of making a notes page was collecting the various web pages that helped me get to wherever I got.
