China Xbox 360 receiver Raspberry Pi – xboxdrv

Raspberry / Banana Pi with xboxdrv

I got you covered on this as well with the help of xboxdrv! Although a little late to the party the Rasbian image initially did not have the xboxdrv library like Ubuntu users were so used to. As a result Raspberry Pi users had to go through the headaches of compiling it themselves or simply find an alternative such as a genetic joystick or bluetooth based joystick control provided they have a bluetooth style receiver.

There is no drag and drop style method for any version of linux, you’ll have to be typing some commands to get it working.

MiniDLNA Server and Raspberry Pi

DNLA NAS server with the help of MiniDLNA for your Raspberry Pi.

MiniDLNA is another one of those articles where I had to go bouncing around between various sites to truly get all of the details about how to setup and maintain MiniDLNA properly. For those who do not know what it is. DLNA stands for “Digital Network Living Alliance” and it’s a protocol used in many consoles, smartTV’s even phones as a standardized protocol that they can all communicate on (depending on video and encoder). The Raspberry Pi is perfect for such a project as it’s low power and can put out an ‘okay’ level of bandwidth can can handle most 720p videos and even some 1080p videos that are encoded well. This is also great if you want to have a constant library of music and pictures that you would like to share with your entire LAN for anyone in your house to view or play.

Chinese Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver Driver setup

Wireless Receiver for the Xbox 360 from China has arrived.

Wireless Receiver for my Xbox 360 controller (Sometimes referred to as a wireless dongle) from China is one of those tools that has become more and more relevant in the gaming industry with console ports and couch co-ops. And unlike other types of electronics from China where it was inferior or simply was nothing more then a piece of plastic or an identifier chip saying what it was but it really did nothing at all. This adapter from china actually does work! But it needs the right drivers!
