Is there an OpenFLIXR for Raspberry PI?


#1

Looking to tinker with my fancy new 3B+. I’ve put Retropie on an SD got that going, (thanks to people here) got docket swarm going on it and my old 2Bs, and now I’m looking to do a Plex like media server. Just wanted to see if someone already has an image where everything is already built like OpenFLIXR. Anyone have suggestions?

I had a similar question, thanks elradix!

Hi,
Can you please explain what are the differences between the 3B and the 3B+?
Would appreciate a link to a 3B+ in Ali Express that I would be able to purchase from.

Also I am trying to follow you on the AlexaPi and I would be happy if you could recommand a cheap USB mic and USB speaker that I can use from Ali Express. and I remember that you mentioned a button - what kind of button?

Thanks,

The 3B+ is like a 3B that drank a little red bull. It has a ~17% faster CPU and way better WiFi. It does consume more power though but due to better power management and heatspreader it runs cooler. Other features include a future power over Ethernet. I don’t know yet if the new pi is available there at AliExpress. I will get back to you on that. I do know that arrow.com has a Google assistant kit that will work with Alexa. That is $15.99 USD. That kit has a button speaker and controller. It has a mic too. Arrow.com is a good site for IOT. They ship world-wide and have good prices. The kit itself is from adafruit so quality is good.

Yes I have seen the Arrow Kit - looks cool but I am not in the US and even if I will try to make a delivery it will cost me extra 10$ inside US.
thought there would be a place in AliExpress that I can get the Mic-Speaker kit.
Thanks
