My Raspberry Pi 3 just came yesterday. Planning to turn it into a music player and output to my Schiit Mimby with Rune Audio installed.

No knowledge at all about this but shouldn't be a problem with all the guides online.

Download the image from openelect.tv look for raspi image 2 or 3

Image to your microSD and you are all set.

In case you are interested in the wiki the full link is openelect.tv

I am assuming you use Kodi as a HTPC to play your music. I am not a sound music fanatic so I am not sure if this will meet your requirements. There could be better solutions out there.

Hope this helps and have fun with the raspi 3!

starter pack usually include the raspberry pi and also some of the key accessories such as SD card (loaded with OS), casing, and power supply. items included in the start pack varies from different sellers.

I bought mine from element14 but I only get the raspberry pi and the casing. the official casing looks quite sleek. previously i had a non-official one but the cut aren't that good.

you can use your android phone charger as power supply, it works for me.

the above should be enough for you to get started.

what kind of programming are you looking to do? i mainly use it to test my script locally before deploying them on the cloud.

I've been using ug802 (android mini stick dual core 1.2G arm, changed the OS to ubuntu) for years for this purpose.

Used VPN and transmission, connect to external powered 3.5" HDD

If dual core 1.2G arm has no issue, I don't see how quad core RPi has issue.

What writing error on transmission did you see?

Recently I bought an OrangePi Zero, and intending to play around to replace my old tv stick.

Hi everyone, I use my Rpi3 as a retro game emulator and media streaming box(less so as a Linux PC). Just burn the retropie image onto an SD card, load some roms and start playing with some old usb controllers lying around. I also downloaded and installed Kodi into Retropie.

Games and endless movies, TV series and beer, perfect way to waste a weekend. All free, except for the beer of course

Hi, has anyone used the Rpi3 installed with Home Assistant as bridge to Google Home/Mini to Broadlink RM Pro (IR & RF) for Smart Home automation?

Thinking to get one to try out.

one thing that can be done with r-pi 3 is to pair it with a HD camera

I used OpenHab instead. It should be able to bind to Broadlink devices.
