I just helped a friend configure his Pi 2 as a media center using OpenELEC. I had a really difficult time getting a web browser working properly in Raspbian. It's odd because it worked perfectly on the original Pi.

Hope you enjoy it!

I suppose you can't just take a ready set up card from the Pi and plug it in to the Pi2?

I'm posting this on my Pi 2.It's definitely much faster than the B+ I have as my media player in the kitchen. It quite happily surfs youtube, ebay and my mail apps at full speed.I've chosen the 900mhz overclock option in the 'raspi-config' menu and I installed Chromium browser and the Synaptic repository.To be quite honest, it's faster online than my aging 2006 Macbook :)The only downside so far is that it won't play any media from my MLB.TV account, but it's all good.

I should be getting mine in about a week. It's still in pre-order.

Forget the Chromium browser: Midori with the Gnash plugin is the fastest and most stable browser with video playback.


I'm liking this Pi 2 more and more by the minute.

LOL seems we could almost have a Pi section I would be lost without mine now connected to my main tv and works perfect.
