    Those prices are finalised already. the model a IS $25 and the model B IS $35. confirmed by official sources multiple times. As for the OS, The spirit of the board is that its designed to be fucked about with, smashed, soldered to bits etc etc. As far as hardware access is concerned, anyone developing for the platform has this as one of their absolute priorities. Because its based on ARM, a lot of the software is going to be "Start from scratch" mode, seeing as most of the stuff developed for linux is x86, and the only thing we really have software wise that is ARM based is android. Supposedly Nokia has "dibs" on 400 of the first production boards to give away free to anyone who is considered a "registered" Qt developer, so they can begin with writing all the basic shit for it asap.

    Oh neat, a Pi Thread.

    I use a model 3 with some kind of Kodi OS on it.
    When I watch a movie and seek forward it sometimes takes over 5 seconds.

    And sometimes it works like charm.

    I doubt it's the network. It does not matter if I jump 10 seconds or 20 minutes. It's just 1 - 7 seconds where the screen is frozen.

    Probs the encoding. Some encodings seem to work way better at seeking, while others don't let you seek at all.

    I'm thinking about using my Pi 2 for Pi-hole, and have a couple questions:
    Do I need to have it wired in to my network to prevent performance loss?
    Does the router I use matter? (I have two routers that are gigabit, one that is not, should it be plugged in to one of the gigabit routers?
    Anything else important to consider?
    Actually an '06.

    Wireless will at worse add a couple of milliseconds.

    Port makes no difference. On most days you'll see a few MBs of traffic.

    Also use wildcards, I block all ru and cn domains. People are also finding the domains used by YouTube adverts (about 90% successful) see reddit for more info.

    Cheers I got it set up today, now I have to figure out how to set up a VPN...

    How did you block all ru and cn domains?

    Go to blacklist and add 'cn' and 'ru' as wildcards. No need to use any funky symbols stars etc.

    Okay, I love this thread.

    My Pi2 is now permanently connected to my primary router with the USB port and an ethernet cable. Its running Pi-hole to block ads and PiVPN so I have ad-free everything everywhere (Open VPN on my phone and laptop).

    My second Pi arrived a few days ago, and it was simplicity itself getting Raspbian loaded and running. Unfortunately, my only available display right now is an old 720p/1080i unit, so I'm squinting at the small text from 8' away. But it works! I was also about to buy the Lenovo wireless keyboard Entrox linked a few years ago, but then I saw it used a USB stick, and wasn't Bluetooth. So I looked around for a cheap wireless keyboard, and bought a Logitech K400+ today. It works perfectly.

    Still haven't had access to a Win10 machine to try Win10 IoT No worries, I'll get there eventually.

    I'd going to try using this unit at judo tournaments to run a scoreboard program, as well as record footage from matches. Would it be better to use USB webcams for this, or use PoE cameras? Does the RPi have enough bandwidth to record from 2-3 cameras and write to a USB device at the same time? Are there any programs out there for RPi that would allow me to quickly review recorded footage?

    Have you considered using one device per application? Eg one raspi that runs the scoreboard, one for each camera? This is a realistic solution.

    Also I cant remember if you answered, but .. why Win10 IoT? What are your expectations? I can potentially save you several hours of your time.

    That's the conclusion I came to the other day as well. Can't run a scoreboard and view footage on the same screen. The scoreboard program runs as an HTML file, so it doesn't HAVE to run on a RPi, but it certainly makes things easier with the RCA output. Looks like I'll be ordering yet another Pi. Still hung up on which kind of cameras to use. The Pi has 4 USB ports, with one being used for the wireless keyboard and another for the hard drive. Which leaves 2 ports for cameras, but I suppose a USB hub can be used. My main concern is whether the Pi has the ability to record from 2 cameras simultaneously while reading data from a hard drive.

    Also I cant remember if you answered, but .. why Win10 IoT? What are your expectations? I can potentially save you several hours of your time.
    Curiosity, mostly. It's not really important, I just wanted to know what's possible.

    Why not just SSH in? Do you need the gui?

    Have you considered using one pi per camera with the purpose built camera? I would be dubious of using USB 2 cameras streaming full video at the same on a Pi. I have not researched it though so could be wrong.

    1) Because I don't know anything about SSH.
    2) Yes, this is for review of matches/calls made by referees. Previously, this was done with camcorders, but we don't want to hold up the next match while reviewing the last one. Tournaments can run 6-8 hours, so we'd like the ability to just start recording, then review footage later when needed, without stopping recording.

    edit: Oh, and having the audio would be very useful, but not mandatory, which is why i was leaning towards using USB webcams.
