Why haven't you brought one yet?
New Raspberry Pi Model B+ released.
>no more Composite output
Wasn't the whole point of this thing to be so poor kids could get access to cheap, affordable computers that would plug into their old, shitty TVs?
I'm still thinking of getting an RPi and a serial board though to set it up as a micro terminal server.
A NAS is nothing more than a hard drive on a network. It's up to you to decide that the transfer speeds of whatever media you're using is fast enough for 1080p. Since this is the Raspberry Pi B+, and only fits MicroSD cards, you're either going to have to buy something that converts the GPIO pins to SATA, or get a dev board that actually has SATA built in because that would be the cheaper option.
It's a good thing you didn't say "As an HTPC to play 1080p video", because the Pi struggles at even that.
But can it handle the throughput of that data is what I'm wondering?
I remember reading somewhere that the ethernet and usb port share the same connection to the board so it struggles with high bitrate operatios.
I'd be using a SATA to USB enclosure
Transferring ???????, I get an average transfer rate of 1.8MB/s for a large 1.5GB file. This is for writes. It's estimated that it will take roughly 13 minutes to finish the transfer.
Again, this is for writes. It is possible that reads could be as much as 1.5x as fast.
So the resulting question is: What is the bitrate of the 1080p video you're watching?
If you like to watch 32GB direct Bluray rips, then the Raspberry Pi isn't for you.
If you like 700MB shitty yify encodes, then the Raspberry Pi is for you, but at the same time you will earn the eternal scorn of anyone with taste.
The results are a measurement of the Pi B's (not the B+'s) capability and are not bottlenecked by the source (a RAM disk), nor the target (a UHS-1 MicroSD card with write speeds faster than USB 2.0 can provide)
Here you go.
It has SATA and the Ethernet is independent form the USB so it's not bottlenecked, unless you want Wifi in which case it would be.
Pick any of the three. I suggest the Cubie 2.
Having said that, if you're going from external USB to the board, that's an obvious weakpoint. You should probably go for a direct SATA connection, if not a really big 64GB SD card.
The B+ dont have Giga, that fucker is high.
Are you sure he is the one thats high?
I am pretty high, pic related.
This any better? Thats some old shit from a while back.
Why haven't you smashed yours when you realized how shit tier and how they lied because it would never work as a programming learning tool for developing countries?
