The Kodi Raspberry Pi Case

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

It is with great pleasure that I get to announce the addition of a new joint venture with one of the most important players in the media center industry, Kodi. We began talking in 2012 after the launch of my first product, Flirc. After they wrote an article about flirc, my relationship with the board members soon strengthened as I was praised for one of the best accessories for their media center software. Their praise was received with great honor, I made flirc specifically for Kodi, and to receive that feedback from the team itself was incredible after years of hard work.

We have built a great relationship with the team, and the Kodi Raspberry Pi Case was a natural step in our growing relationship together. It’s with great excitement to announce a limited edition Kodi Raspberry Pi Case, which is available today from our store, and customers outside the US can get theirs at our partner, The Pi Hut located in the UK.

Flirc USB will also be on sale for 25% off only through our site to celebrate the launch. I look forward to many more ventures with Kodi. Please check out their full press release and don’t forget to watch the great video that Nate put together.

Big thanks to Nate, Franz, and Martijn for their help, patience, and collaboration over the past 6 months in nailing this to perfection. It was a pleasure working with them.

Kodi is the registered trademark of the XBMC foundation and Flirc was granted permission to use their logo.

New Store

I’ll start out with the juicy stuff. If you head over to the main flirc website, the buy link has been replaced with ‘store‘. It’s no coincidence that flirc has been extremely popular in the raspberry pi community. So it only made sense to help customers by giving them the convenience of purchasing the raspberry pi and it’s accessories at flirc. However, if purchased together, there is a 4.00 savings off the order. That’s awesome!

New Support Site

I’ve also added a new support website. I’ve decided to go with zendesk which will be populated with as much information as possible to help solve common issues. If you had recently emailed me in the past, my response time was hit or miss. As Flirc has grown, so has my responsibilities. I do this on the side of a full time job, and I’m a new father. It’s getting extremely tough, so I’m redirecting support questions to a knowledge base which will most likely answer your question. If not, there are the forums, and then me. I’ve been pretty active on the forums, but I can’t keep up with the sheer volume of emails that hit my inbox. Nearly all of them are easily answered somewhere on the site. I’m just making them easier to find.

New Products

Okay, so the theme for today’s post is the raspberry pi. I’ve got some exciting stuff coming out for that, it’s going to make some waves. More updates soon.

New Bootloader

I finished a new bootloader that will be shipping on newly shipped devices, more details on why tomorrow.
