PiBox Media Center v0.11.0 Release Notes

Additional Information

General Status
PiBox Media Center is a consumer oriented distributions for distributed media playback in travel trailers without Internet connectivity. The UI is based on GTK+ with Cairo and the system runs on the Raspberry Pi optimized PiBox Developement Platform distribution.

Highlights for this release include
  • Support for Raspberry Pi Model 2
  • A new app: picam (webcam on the connected monitor)
  • Switched VideoLib database to JSON and added support for TV series
  • Video selection now includes poster and series artwork plus summaries
  • Video playback now supports both HDMI and analog audio
  • Major performance improvements in the video front end app and webcam playback
  • Made fbturbo the default X server
  • New functionality and JSON support to libpibox
  • Minor UI cleanup including dropping the X cursor
  • Added support for multicast registration of IoT devices along with REST interface definition
  • Major code cleanup of Pibox Network Config and associated libpnc.
  • Upgrades to latest upstream firmware
  • Verified compatibility with available upstream rootfs packages
  • Bump cross toolchain gcc to 4.8.5
  • Improved metabuild for opkgs
  • Improved cross-toolchain builds for all opkgs
  • Updates to piboxd server unit tests

PiBox Media Player's can now perform better in video selections as long as the VideoLib app was used to reduce the
size of poster art.

Where this is headed
Near term plans include support for a PC-based XM Satellite Receiver and improving the Video Front End UI to be more Plex-like.

The long term plans include integration with BLE devices to provide a wider-scale Internet of Things infrastructure, taking PiBox from the trailer into the home. Additional work is planned for WiFi Direct, improving boot times and overall performance, additional media player apps and voice and smartphone control.

0.12 Plans
  • Android app remote control over wifi
  • Hardware related projects
    • Custom cases
    • Rechargable LiPo battery supply w/ power on/off
    • Integrate multiport USB "shield" with Media Server
  • Possible BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) dongle integration
  • TV app using USB adpater
  • Music player app

Getting involved
PiBox is currently a one man project. I'd like to have more users of the system and welcome new developers.

To get started using the system please download the tarball, unpack it and use the mksd card to format your SD card. Then use the mkinstall script to install the distribution to the SD card.

To get started with development, please read the developer wiki on how to build the PiBox Development Platform.

Contact me at or if you're interested in helping out, have ideas for improvement or just want to know how to use the system.

Clean up unit tests so they are less verbose by default and specify PASS or FAIL after the test name. Added validation tests for everything up to heartbeate and made sure they properly clean up so they can all be run in sequence from a single test run. Allow generation of a unique UUID for some tests. Capture connection reset by peer message from nc but don't assume failure because of it. Run piboxd with

RM #455: Added base network address to hostap configuration.
RM #439: Fix load of hostap config to default to TKIP to match clients expectations.

RM #515: Migrate to libpibox version of logging library.
RM #542: Add menu bar that works with TAB to switch between Movies and TV Episodes. It's just the menu, but it's Cairo based so the same events work on it as the rest of the interface. This was required prior to designing a way for working with either types of db formats.
RM #511: Set new default for vtsrc and vttmp to 3 and 4, respectively, to support changes in kernel and inittab for upcoming 0.11.0 release.
