Der Mini-Computer Raspberry Pi setzt seinen Erfolgskurs kontinuierlich fort.
Mittlerweile wurde das Gerät 3,5 Millionen Mal verkauft, berichtet das Branchenblatt DigiTimes unter Berufung auf Eric Lee (Asien-Marketingchef des Vertriebspartners RS Components)

Der Kleinst-PC Raspberry Pi hat nun einen Konkurrenten mit mehr Power und Features bekommen.
Die neue Vitaminbombe an der Obsttheke nennt sich Banana Pi und wird von dem IKT-Hersteller und Distributor Allnet vertrieben.

It’s a little late because I’ve been very busy, and wanted to make sure the update for this goes smoothly rather than rush something out. This is a big one. Some of you may have got part of the update earlier last week and seen a ‘Service management’ or root filesystem update. That was done to prepare your systems for this update well in advance. Here’s what’s new this September:

  • New initramfs that can repair corruption when it occurs.
  • UUID labels now also supported for USB volumes
  • In October, we will switch to UUID labels for USB installs by default
  • Raspbmc is now faster
  • Thanks to popcornmix for the following XBMC changes:
    • Fix for crash when bookmarking
    • Dynamic range compression to boost center channel volume
    • Speed improvement for opening movies library
    • Fixed for compressed audio in stereo
    • Bug fixes with JPEG parsing
    • Avoid submitting too large audio buffers
  • I’ve also added the following to XBMC:
    • Windows Media Center PVR support in XBMC (thanks ‘krustyreturns’ for the client)
    • 24 hour nightly builds resumed
  • Linux 3.10 is now the long term kernel as supported by Greg Kroah-Hartman
  • Added 1-wire module support as requested
  • Fix for isochronous signal support which affected DVB adapters
  • Improved DVB adapter support
  • GSPCA webcam support
  • Fix rsyslog issues
  • New Boblight addon update fixes issues with refresh rate changes
  • Fix a bug where secure-rmc can cause high CPU usage
  • Fix a bug where failed kernel update results in no WiFi
  • Silence md5sum checks when updating
  • Downclock CPU frequency when updating to minimise likelihood of corruption
  • Synchronous writeback on vfat to reduce corruption
  • Wake On LAN support allows Raspbmc to wake a remote system before XBMC starts
  • sabnzbd newsgroup reader available in Raspbmc Settings
  • Updated standalone image and NOOBS images

PiHub01 PiHub02










Auch wenn sich der Name „PIHUB“ für uns Germanen nicht gerade salonfähig anhört 😉 macht der kleine HUB im Himbeeren-Design was her!


  • 4 USB 2.0 Ports (abwärtskompatibel zu Version 1.1)
  • 3000mA um auch leistungshungrige Geräte wie z.B. externe 2,5″-Festplatten mit ausreichend Strom zu versorgen
  • 5,2V
  • funktioniert auch ohne Netzteil für low-powered Geräte
  • Multi-TT-Prozessor für optimale Performance
  • CE- und FCC-geprüft

Der PIHUB wird im englischen Sheffield gefertigt, inklusive Netzteil kostet der Hub £19,95 (ca. €23,70), ohne Netzteil £13,95 (ca. €16,57).

Raspbmc’s August update is mainly fix oriented and fixes some issues rather than introducing new features specifically. Some good new features are planned for September, but for now, here’s what this month brings:

  • Support for Raspberry Pi’s with Micron memory to installer
  • Re-added support for Dual Audio (simultaneous analog and HDMI output)
  • Fixed some issues where some settings were not applied properly:
    • GPU and CPU temperature display
    • Cache buffer size (would have caused streaming issues)
    • Number of background worker threads (could have caused crashes)
    • Resolution of fanart (could have caused OOM on the VideoCore)
  • Thanks to popcornmix for his usual contributions:
    • Fix for visualisations in XBMC
    • Fix for adjusting video settings during playback
    • Fix for seeking issues with DVD and online content
    • Fix for issues with OGG playback
    • Fix for the buffering regression when playing files with (unused) TrueHD audio (may help other files)
  • Properly fix issue with SSIDs that have spaces in their name
  • Reduce installation and update time by making kernel header installation optional via Raspbmc Settings
  • Fix a kernel updating bug with NOOBS installations
  • If MD5 hash fails on kernel update, then Raspbmc will try and update the kernel again on the next boot
  • Updated standalone image to August release to save update time and ensure absolute package freshness

To get the update, simply reboot your Raspberry Pi. Note that if you have disabled updates via Raspbmc Settings, you’ll need to enable them first, and if you’re running a nightly build, you’ll need to switch to ‘xbmc release’ in Raspbmc Settings to get back to the stable builds we ship as default.
