Why haven't you brought one yet?

New Raspberry Pi Model B+ released.
>>
Because I don't fucking use my last gen model B.
>>
>>43608035

>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.
>>
What's the difference between the model B except for the GPIO and USB ports?
>>
>>43608035
Eh, i might buy one to make a dedicated torrent box. We'll see.
>>
>>43608071
I think the 3.5 out has it now. I wonder if it made image quality worse though.
>>
>>43608071
Fuck the poor kids. I got mine for controlling things through GPIO.

Besides, shitty TVs use HDMI now. It should have a displayport output instead, because HDMI is deprecated.
>>
>brought

the english language is kill
>>
>>43608075
None except it takes less power now
>>
Have no idea what I'd do with it.
>>
If only it had two LAN ports
>>
They're fucking cool but I don't have any real use for one. It would probably end up sitting on a shelf.
>>
>>43608264

>not using usb to ethernet

I could see why you wouldn't but its next best option.
>>
>>43608084
Doing this now with deluge and its awesome. Have torrents download all night, stream that shit to my chrome cast all day
>>
>>43608483
But muh Gigabit
>>
>>43608620
The Raspberry Pi doesn't use gigabit anyway........
>>
could I use this as a NAS for 1080p video?
>>
>>43608674
Yes
>>
>>43608684
how about 2 1080p streams at once
>>
>>43608668
What, then why have a gigabit ethernet port?
>>
>>43608035
>Why haven't you brought one yet?
Maybe because no one here can even boot one of those.
>>
>>43608674
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.
>>
>>43608533
How do you stream your files to chromecast?

I might copy your idea.
>>
>>43608773
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
>>
>>43608075
composite video is fed through the 3.5mm headphone thing now
>>
>>43608761
But it doesn't have a gigabit ethernet port, are you high?

http://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#networkingNoGig
>>
>>43608807
I have a UHS-1 MicroSD, so I'll test the speed of it in a second by transferring some chinese cartoons to it through sFTP over the wireless.
>>
>>43608620
it would be bottlenecked by the shitty usb speeds anyway
>>
How difficult would it be / Is it possible to solder a SATA connector to the GPIO Pins?
>>
>>43608035
because it's depreciated as fuck and you can get better android sticks for less money. they've been milking their shitty little computer for too long.
>>
>>43608837
That's the old one. The B+ has it.
>>
>>43608968
Source?

Maybe I am high LOL
>>
>>43608838
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.
>>
>>43609002
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)
>>
>>43609002
thanks anon.

I guess I'll have to look for something else to send my 15 gig autism rips.
>>
What would I even do with it?
>>
>>43609033
http://docs.cubieboard.org/products/start#a20-cubieboard
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.
>>
>>43609125
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.
>>
Because I have an Arduino
>>
>>43609114
1. Let it gather dust like 90% of people who own one

2. Become a fat neckbeard and turn it into a Linux home media server

Tell that to the people this shit was originally targeted at, CRT SDTVs are still fucking everywhere.

I'm afraid that's shit weed, anon-kun. Real weed has colors that do not appear in the palette of a Call of Duty game.

shwag isn't that bad for joints as long as there's no seeds

no comparison to the real thing though, obviously

>>
>>43608761
Because the Ethernet port that's on it uses a USB to Ethernet ic anyway - it's all USB.
Just add more USB.
>>
Because when I decide to get another SoC I'm going with the more expensive, but better, beagle system. I like the onboard disk and thought that the SD card was annoying, finicky and slow.
>>
>>43609984
You sort out the goddamn seeds you fucking idiot.
>>
>>43610064
no shit you dickwheel, but it still tastes like seeds, enjoy your shit weed
>>

Sure hope you don't mean the camera.

Looks like good dope though. About like what you can get for cheap in any college town.
>>
>>43609634

The original A and B boards are still available for those who want them.

No need, I have an odroid already, 2x USB 3 and quadcore arm a15.

Fuck off, stonerfags. No one cares how cool you are for smoking weed.
