I got me a Raspberry Pi 3b to use as an HTPC. I though I'd load it with LibreELEC/Kodi.

My question to yall is this: Can any of you hosers see any problem with using this French-Canadian type wireless keyboard? I know I'd have to reach farther for the entrée button and such, but it's really teh cheaps for a new one, eh? It's not as if I'd be using it to type novels, just playing movies from my home network and possibly a bit of web surfing.

The French-Canadian keyboard arrived today and it werks great! I don't usually use trakpads, but when I do I like great bigguns like this one. Very good tool for TV/couch computing. Good bargain, would buy again.

The exo-lingual layout isn't a problem at all, & the punctuators seem to be positioned correctly right out of the box. Maybe it would be clumsy to write code, i dunno.

Here, I'll type something with it...

How do you use a PI as a HTPC? Im curious. I have a dell that I use for internet radio mostly.. a crying shame I know. I have movies on the HDD, but I never watch them and my TV has apps for all the online stuff, that work great..

The latest Pi has HDMI, wifi, bluetooth, camera input & most importantly a fast enough proc to play HD media. I don't have a smart TV & don't think I want one, because Big Brother. Especially when the $35 Pi does the same thing but I retain complete control. It even switches on & off with the TV cause it's powered by the TV's USB plug.

I recommend it highly.

But what do you run on it? Is there some sort of apps that will connect to netflix etc? or do you just use it to play media off of a HHD or something?
