First Retirement Project Pretty Much Complete

So the first of my retirement projects is near enough complete. It is up and running and needs some tweaks and of course regular maintenance.

So what have we got?

Well we have a nice shiny new built media centre. This comprises a nice widescreen telly with 2 Rapsberry Pi’s attached. One is a web server running some Home Assistant, NetData and some python scripts that I have developed. The second Raspberry Pi contains Kodi and Recalbox. This gives me TV, movies, music, E-book and image viewing and also retro gaming with clones of some old favourites such as the ZX Spectrum, Atari 2600, Atari, ST, Sega Megadrive and SNES. This is a really cool setup and I have added some decent headphones, a soundbar and an external DVD setup. A 2TB hard drive is attached. Finally there are 2 games controllers, a keyboard and mouse.

So what is left to do?

Well the 256GB MicroSD card needs to be upgraded to a 1TB one – there are still loads of games, PDF, songs and movies I want to add. More Python and PHP scripts need to be added to the webserver as when I get round to writing them and I could do with adding a Pico style projector for bouncing stuff off the back wall. Home Assistant needs some development work too. In time I should also like to do more with the integration of my Google Home Mini.

Apart from these nice to haves this project is complete and it is working well..

The biggest problem I am going to have with this project is deciding which of the 400 or so retro games from 80’s and 90’s I wish to play.

So the first project is ready. This should keep me quiet for a bit.
