    Good news for you half-hearted RPi owners

    New video features! MPEG-2 and VC-1 decode, H.264 encode, CEC support | Raspberry Pi
    So you just use it fully as a cheap media playback device

    PS now that they are freely available on next day delivery from CPC - if anyone wants to get rid of theirs for 20 - give me a shout

    I've been thinking that if the Pi could act as a http server and a RDP client it could actually be used to really cheaply upgrade projectors to network projectors that would work out of the box with Windows Vista/7 Developing a Windows Network Projector (Windows Embedded CE 6.0) it is just a RDP client with a web control interface. A Pi could probably pull the job off for practically nothing and with the serial output/input of the Pi you could control most projectors via their serial ports too.

    I just tried the CEC support and it worked fine with my Samsung TV. I must admit I was surprised it worked without any fiddling!
