Pivos forks XBMC and will release it as Tofu

Interesting stuff here: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/10/prweb11249720.htm

Pivos Technology Group, known from the embedded devices, has forked XBMC. The fork will be called TOFU Media Center and initially first support the GameStick device, which will ship later this year. It’s unclear if the TOFU Media Center software will be ported to existing devices, such as the Pivos XIOS DS. To be continued.

    Why would Pivos do that? I find that quite annoying, after all the people at XBMC have done, they would just take it, change the name and sell it as theirs? THAT SUCKS!

    It’s open source, they have right to do it. So why not? Maybe at the one time later they will submit pull request of some of their changes to XBMC.

    Also they may want to implement some features, which maintainers don’t want to be in XBMC project.

  3. Sinds enkele weken draai ik Tofu op de Gamestick die ik via Kickstarter heb besteld destijds. Het draait soepel en heeft als standaardtheme Confluence, met een paar kleine aanpassingen. Je moet films wel vanaf de stick’s geheugen draaien. 1080P over WiFi is niet ideaal.

    Het dock, die later komt, heeft wel een netwerkpoort. Dan zal het beter gaan.

    Meest ideale aan de stick, je hebt geen aparte voeding nodig, gewoon een kabeltje naar de USB-poort van de TV zelf.

    Welke stick betreft dit precies?
    En draait deze stottervrij 1080p met DTS audio?
    Ik ken maar weinig android sticks waarop je XBMC kunt draaien,waarbij XBMC gebruik kan maken van de hardware video acceleration.
    Volgens mij trekken de meeste sticks daarom geen 1080p onder XBMC.

  5. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while
    people consider worries that they just do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  6. What’s up, I want to subscribe for this web site to
    obtain hottest updates, thus where can i do it please assist.
