Raspberry PI 3 | HOME CINEMA

You can use BerryBoot to install a load of different OS' on your Raspberry Pi 3, including Android. Go through those and see which suits your needs best :)

 

BerryBoot also makes it SOOO much easier than having to do all the work yourself.

Use Retro Pi. You can install kodi on it and use various methods of controlling it such as a controller or wireless keyboard with ease


If I don't seem to laugh very often, it will be because I sold my soul for more PC parts.

I think that Raspberry PI 3 Model B can run windows with no problems , and when i connect it with TV i can use it for newspapper reading , youtube , netflix , that is allot better than Rertro PI

kodi and retropi dont like each other, i know its an option, but it does some very odd glitches.

 

if it's just for media center purposes, kodi will do fine, and they have ready made images for the pi. i dont know about the netflix side of things tho.

they have an ARM build of windows 10 for the pi3, i'd dare say "no problems" will most likely be an overly positive estimation tho.

Yeah, I have one at home. It just sits there collecting dust to be honest, but with Android, Kodi and a wireless keyboard/mouse combo it can be a cool little toy :)

Nope, I haven't personally installed the Android from BerryBoot. Although everything I have used berryboot for (Debian, NOC-PS Lite and a few others) has worked perfectly.

 

I'm sure the interwebs might have some knowledge of how it work. I just know it's Kitkat :P

As I had a Plex server I didn't wanted to bother with Kodi so I used http://www.rasplex.com/. Great "out of the box" experience (as far as a Raspberry Pi could go), worked really fine with a remote server, even with heavy files (+30GB) a Playstation 4 struggled to decode, thanks to native Direct Play. But you'll need a Plex server.

I don't know about Netflix though.
