Get an XBMC client running on Raspberrypi without attaching a keyboard, mouse, or wired ethernet.
- Micro USB power source (5v)
- HDMI cable
- SD card (recommend at least 5GB)
- Install: information here: http://www.raspbmc.com/
Really easy on Mac OS
NB: Configure the wifi during your install (or you will need to use a WiFi extender eg. TP-LINK in extender mode via wired ethernet port.)
- Enable remote control via Android
Connect via SSH:
- SSH to Raspbmc
- edit the gui settings to allow android remote:
sudo vi ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml
- Search for esallinterfaces
- Set it to true
- :wq to save and exit the file.
- Install XBMC remote for Android or iPhone.
It might say connection refused. ignore that and go to settings:
- Set the IP address to your raspberry pi (use a network scanner like Fing to find it)
- Select 80 as the port
- Username and password blank unless you've changed them
- Use as remote (ignore connection refused).
