Pi Zero- could it be utilized straight OutOfBox?


#1

Compared to the demand only a lucky few got the pi Zero on its launch. Is there a community member testing ORx on the new pi zero. Do share your comments on its feasibility on challenges.

Straight off the bat, I would say it could be used without problems. As far as I know, it has the same CPU as Pi1 B+, except that it misses the SMSC USB hub end ethernet controller (it sucks anyway), and only has one USB port. If you attach a powered USB HUB to it and connect the tuner and WiFi dongle, then the 2.0.000 image for Pi1 it should work. USB ethernet adapters are not supported, though.
