I have a Pi purely as an entertainment hub. I am more than happy with the set up and technology but one thing is bugging me. Is there an easy way to search for specific films? I have spent ages just paging through stuff and often not found what I am looking for. The search feature seems to be based around TV programmes and not helpful for films. Any advice?

Mind you, paging through random films has led me to watching some stuff I had not heard of so it does have it's benefits sometimes :-)

Cheers

Wasn't the Open ELEC forum any help?

I don't know anything about it: I only opened this thread because I have a raspberry Pi, but mine's used as a home email and file server. I looked up OpenELEC to find out what it was and I'd have thought its own forum would be a better place than Mudcat to get an answer to your question.

You can get an answer for ANYTHING on Mudcat. May not always be sensible though :-) I did look on the OpenELEC forum but could not find anything useful. Thanks anyway.

Well I've had a look and I am none the wiser. Perhaps learning German or Greek would be easier. On second thoughts I'll just remain a Luddite and stay with enjoying, Singing, Gardening and playing the Concertina

You can search for films in the Icefilms addon, and other addons, but Icefilms is my preferred one.

Decided to look for Icefilms and loaded xbmc add-on browser and wizard first to make it easier. It certainly did make it easier - It loaded the Icefilms add-on automatically! :-) And I can confirm it is good with an excellent search facility.

Cheers

I purchased the Pi as soon as it became available but soon put it back on the shelf.
I am an electronic engineer and built my own computer way back in the 70s so I was interested in this little device. I found I could do anything with my BBC B and Spectrum that the Pi was able to do and found no further use for it. Now I have given it to my 10 year old grandson who is using Scratch at school (on a PC) but hope to teach him Python and then he'll be able to use the Pi's ability to control external objects (I built a sound recognition system using a BBC B in the 80s).
The built in language I found to be very similar to Sinclair QL end therefor couldn't see any advantage in using the Pi. It was also very messy to start with as it required an external mouse, keyboard and HD ready monitor (or a VGA converter), wires everywhere. I have found a company which issues an SD card with remote access included so you can use your laptop ... much cleaner.
I would be interested for any info on what the Pi can be specifically used for, that a PC cannot do. I saw on the TV last night that this will be the year of "coding" whatever that means but I will try to find out.
