Raspberry Pi XBMC bundle turns micro computer into a mini media streaming monster

raspberry-pi-xbmc_top.jpegThe cheap, tiny and versatile Raspberry Pi computer gets perhaps its most consumer-friendly bundle yet today in the shape of the XBMC Solution.

Consisting of a Raspberry Pi computer, Ethernet and HDMI cables, a QWERTY-packing controller with touchpad and a bootable SD card which has the Raspbmc software preloaded on it, it’s a steal for those looking to put together an affordable streaming kit in their living room.raspberry-pi-xbmc_web.jpg
The XBMC software (or “Xbox Media Centre” to give it its full name) will allow you to input your Xbox Live ID in order to get recommended content suggestions, you can also use it to stream your personal collection of movies and music over networked storage, or plug a USB stick in to playback media content.

Said to be easy to set up within minutes of opening the box, it’s available from Element14, and will set you back a pocket-money £45.99.
