I know this question may have been asked before. I just want to know if there are any alternatives to the Raspberry Pi. I want to use it as an XMBC station, but the reviews tell me that it's a bit buggy as of now. The video forwarding and the loading times are not very good.

What I get from all this is that a Raspberry Pi is a good machine for beginners to learn programming, but power users might want to look somewhere else.

Finally, here is my question: What are some other alternatives to the Raspberry Pi. They must be compatible with any flavor of linux. One I like is PandaBoard.

Any other suggestion like that would be great. Price range is between $0-240

  • After careful consideration I have decided to go with PandaBoard ES from DigiKey website.. – tinyhook Sep 23 '12 at 20:03
  • Well actually I am having a hard time deciding between ODROID-X and PandaBoard ES .. They both seem to do the job perfectly fine. – tinyhook Sep 24 '12 at 2:16

    We should try to aim for answers to stand on their own merit, rather than just link to another site. Would you consider summarising the information here? – Alex Chamberlain Sep 23 '12 at 18:55
  • Sure no problem! – ikku Sep 23 '12 at 19:35
  • +1 for posting list of alternatives. @AlexChamberlain you should consider +1 also. – HeatfanJohn Sep 23 '12 at 22:55

    So, that was quite a job, too bad that it just remains a flat list, it would me much more useful in a different format. Some format where it is actually possible to compare the data of the various boards. But I am afraid that is not possible, or am I wrong? – ikku Sep 24 '12 at 1:19

Raspberry Pi is quite enough hardware for XBMC. Most of the problems are in the XBMC software implementation, just wait them to be resolved.

However, raymii.org does have a nice list of Linux compatible PCs here: http://raymii.org/cms/p_Small_Linux_PCs_overview

Raspbmc worked great (with a bit safe overclocking) and in RC 5 there will be the new raspberry pi turbo mode.

Really the best option in my opinion ( I still have my HUGE HTPC but for the other TV's it's RaspBMC all the way)

  • This doesn't answer the question in any way, you just state that you don't have the issue the OP is having. – Dmitry Grigoryev Jan 22 '17 at 13:26
