Nice! We need to get someone on conning TI to open all those DSP codecs for the OMAP3/4.

Or are you aiming at an OMAP-only version?

TI are the only ones from whom I've heard even grumblings of opening stuff.

Hi, I love what you are trying to do, and I would also love helping you port xbmc for ARM arch, and even eventually the Android mobile OS.
I sent you a PM, I can't wait to get started helping port.

Fantastic work McGeagh. The Pandora community is watching with interest.

Hmm... the hardware is getting there quickly folks!

Just a quick update for u all... its been a while, i know.
Im looking into OpenGL ES 2.0 in order to do the video rendering, because at the moment the software renderer isnt adequate enough. I have increased performance (of at least the GUI) by a considerable amount compared to the version shown in my youtube video, but still not good enough for general use. My main priority atm is the video rendering.
Hopefully i'll have something more substantial by next month.

Nice. Thanks for the update. Hows the skinning engine performing if you are entertaining inquiries?
BTW, do you need additional equipment? we can maybe raise some money and get it for you on here.
You probably know that the Tegra stuff will be out shortly, and probably by gen 2, end of next year, will it have the horsepower that TI is doing at the end of this year on non floating point capability. On the GPU end it should be substantially better than anything else, being essentially an underclocked second gen ION. I think they will provide a Linux SDK at some point. I think if the basic stuff is done, we should see incredible potential with that SoC, bang for buck.

The gui isnt performing great, but is useable if u dont mind lag... no figures to give, sorry.
As for equipment, thanks for the offer, but I dont think I need anything (atleast not now).
The only thing i need is my knowledge of GL (ES) to be better lol
The tegra is definately an interesting thing and will look into it eventually... cant say much more though, sorry.

Although there might be more developers interested in helping with the porting that doesn't have hardware, so raising money for the foundation is always appreciated.
I know myself to be abit interested in helping out.
