First application with Raspberry Pi 2 is live! This is a lot different than learning Arduino! The installation of OSMC ran smoothly and was very quick. I look forward to chronicling from the mindset of a complete noob.
The only kink I ran into so far was figuring out how to configure the audio output to push to the analog output. I had to go deep into the settings menu. OSMC didn't seem to give me easy native access to a terminal to configure it in the way other people suggested so I used this method.
Next step: Getting rolling on my roadtest!
Installation progress automatically once you boot up the Raspberry Pi 2 with an OSMC image on the micro SD card
Had to do a test run with the minions to make sure everything was working!
