The goal of this page is to use a Pi as mediacenter

Hardware setup

  • A raspberry pi connected to a beamer even old
  • A remote like this one
  • Optionnal: arduino and relay
  • Optionnal: remote joysticks


Basic setup


You can set some actions to some button of the remote.




Youtube chromecast

This can be use to have youtube chromecast behaviour only with a raspberry.


All you need to do is to open automatically a web browser and calling this web page:


nano /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

@chromium-browser --app= --user-agent='Roku/DVP-5.0 (025.00E08043A)' # Netflix



There is currently no simple solution. One seems to work (never tested). This is related to the software Kodi.


Video game

The are a solution with RetroPi, not test yet by me.
