Would a Raspberry Pi running Linux make a good home theater PC? (Part 3)

Episode 949 (16:53)

Ashar from St Johns, Canada
Raspberry Pi

Scott isn't sure, but if Ashar is comfortable with it, it may be. The chatroom says that the Raspberry Pi is more of a science fair project than a usable computer. A streaming stick is a better option. Roku has one, but he'd need a TV that has an MHL port. There are others though that would still be a better option than the Raspberry Pi.
