“The short answer is yeas! This bit of kit is awesome, set up.as a media player and it loads my home movies perfectly. Installed it as a nas box for tests and its flawless.
Ordered and it was delievered super quick and well packaged. Would recommend buying :)”
“When my new pi arrived I immediately installed the latest version of kodi/openelec. Openelec boots much quicker than on the old model B.The kodi user interface is not much faster but is now smooth and supple. I had already noticed that kodi 14.1 seems to decode MPEG2 in software , but this is just too much work for the older PI/512, and the audio and video rapidly become out of sync. The PI2, however, handles the extra load with ease; and without any overclocking! This evening someone was using the PI 2 to watch a 1080p film and at the same time I was using it to stream music to my tablet in another room, both without any issues.
I also bought the flirc aluminium case thinking it would act as a good heatsink when I overclock the pi, but the quad core and 1GB memory delivers so much power, I don't think I'll bother!”
