This tutorial mainly teaches you, Raspberry PI to install XBMC system, how to configure Chinese, wireless network card configuration, video plug-in installation, to watch movies.


Raspberry PI


First download the XBMC system. (The following system according to personal choice) instructions; XBMC system will be updated regularly, please download it yourself or check the latest download officially


1. Raspberry PI Generation 1 B+ for XBMC system: 2. Raspberry PI Generation 2 B for XBMC system: 3 Raspberry PI generation 3 B for XBMC system: 4. You can also download the official OPENELEC system (as shown below) :


The above system can download one at will


After downloading, install the system with "Win32DiskImager software." The config.txt configuration file needs to be modified or replaced once the system is installed (same as raspbian system installation steps). Otherwise it cannot be displayed! How to modify the configuration file and install the system please refer to the "Basic System Installation tutorial" in the tutorial.


Ii. xbian Settings related to launching Raspberry PI. After the Raspberry PI is installed with XBMC, it will take a while to start the Raspberry and see the "progress bar". (The screen after startup is as follows, the system version may be different or the desktop display may be different) but roughly the same


We first modify the Chinese setting: Important note: the following steps need to be carried out in strict order, first operate the first step and then the second step, if the following steps 1 and 2 are reversed, the screen will spend the screen, nothing can be seen clearly. We need to start over


1. Move the mouse back to select [SYSTEM], [Settings], [Appearance], [Skin]; Select [Font] on the right, flip the page to select [Arial based], then move the "cursor" away, wait a few seconds, the system will automatically change the confirmation options


2. Chinese: Select Appearance and International on the left; On the right, select [Language], Enter, find [Chinese (Simple)], enter. Wait a few seconds, the interface will automatically change to Chinese characters.


xbian system configuration: 1, the configuration of wireless network card needs to enter the command line interface, and this is a graphical interface, don't worry, click the lower right corner of the "house" icon to return to the home page, and then click the lower left corner of the "power" button icon, there will be a prompt "exit, power off, hibernate, restart, standby" and other options, select "exit", and wait to see the command line interface


2. After entering the command line interface, you will see xbian login:, enter xbian, and press Enter. There will be "password:", followed by "raspberry" (it won't show anything), and then just enter.


3, Enter the correct password, you will enter the xbian "config"; Config>Settings>System>Resize SD (Expand the system to the entire SD, open). select Select and then yes.) Config>Settings>System>Overclocking (overclocking, you can select Medium) Config>Settings>System>Hostname (device name, device name, device name, device name, device name, device name, device name. You can modify our own modification to "yxbian") Config>Settings>System>Timezone (time zone setting, select Asia after entering, and click the space bar, that is, select it, and then "*" will appear in front of the parentheses; Then select "shanghai", again by pressing the space bar.) Config>Settings>Accounts (set your root password, etc.) Config>Settings>SSH root login (enable) Config>Settings>Networking: (" Wireless "network Settings, provided that you have installed a driverless wireless network card, and recognized by xbian, using this wireless network card is not worried.) Select and go to" networking ", you will see "eth0 and wlan0", move the cursor, select wlan0, and hit the enter key. Then you see "() 1 [DHCP]", select it, and hit the space bar, after which an "*" will appear in parentheses, and then hit Enter. After you press enter, "scan" and "custom" are displayed. Select Scan and press Enter. After a few seconds, the WIFI hotspots around you that the wireless card has searched for will appear. Select the WIFI hotspot where you know the password and hit Enter to enter. Then see: SSID and KEY, generally SSID has been automatically filled in, password (key), then only you know, knock on the keyboard, enter your password. After entering the credentials, press tab, select change, and press Enter. The message "WLAN credentials successfully updated" is displayed. Just press Enter. And then, and so on, and so on, not surprisingly, will appear Successfully connented to 'name of your wireless hot spot. If successful, you will see the IP address assigned to wlan0... But if it works, you don't always see it. Was it a success? It's very simple:


4 Restart: ctrl+alt+delete after a few seconds, automatically restart, enter the XBIAN graphical interface, find "system Settings", "system information", if you can see the assigned "IP address", you have been connected to the network... Congratulations, but don't worry. To watch video movies, there is a Chinese video plug-in has not been installed... How to install see the following introduction: First on the computer browser open the following address: Download this Chinese video plug-in. After downloading, do not unzip it. First put it on the computer, then turn off the Raspberry PI and pull out the TF card, then plug it into the card reader, go to "My computer", find the SD card, and enter, and then copy this Chinese video plug-in to the SD card surface on the line. The direct copy is done without questioning, insert the SD card again into the Raspberry PI, and launch the Raspberry PI. Enter System and Settings, enter Plug-ins, enter Install from zip file, enter root filesystem, and enter boot. Can see "repository. Googlecode. XBMC addons - Chinese - Eden. Zip" the Chinese plug-in, then choose, and press enter (mouse, you can directly click) then it is ok to wait a minute, the lower right corner will be prompted to "success" or something like that. After installation, enter "System, Settings", enter "plug-in", enter "Get extension function", select "Chinese Add-on Repository", select "Video extension function", you will see the names of various video websites... (If the Chinese Add-on Repository file is empty, restart the Raspberry PI and try again.) Thunder see, PPTV, Youku, etc., just choose one, click install... The other same operation... Open them one by one... After all the operations on one side, the word "open" will appear after the success. Plugins are sometimes updated if they can't be used, you can download the search XMBC video plug-in and copy it again to the SD card


5. Watch video: Go to xbian desktop, go to "Videos", go to "Extensions", choose your favorite video site ,,,, and start watching movies...

Matters needing attention

If the display is not correct, configure the resolution of the config.txt file first.


If there is no sound using the peripheral speaker or speaker, please turn on or off the audio pass-through output or adjust the audio output in the system Settings


Suggestion: If you watch TV for a long time, please do a good job of heat dissipation function, the necessary heat sink fan is best armed
