On Raspberry OpenELEC Tvheadend works well streaming directly to TV, but how about streaming to TV and to a computer?
That’s what I did today. For 15 minutes every 10 seconds pidstat monitored CPU usage for the Tvheadend program while streaming both to TV and my computer. Here’s the chart.
Although related with XBMC this tip is intended to Raspberry Pi community (it’s also possible to all other XBMC clients).
I’ve experimented several skins aiming a better user experience and performance, from all Refocus was the best. Refocus is able to give a very good user experience and the best performance for Rasbperry Pi. On System -> System Information my RPi was doing (at best) 62fps @ 1080p (which is awesome!).
I’m a proud owner of Raspberry Pi, and I hope to have much time to spend doing software / hardware stuff with it.
However this post is about my will to see RaspberryPi as mediacenter: mounting my network shares and streaming DVB-T channels. I live in Portugal, so DVB-T channels are encoded in H264/AAC.
