    Which Version of PiCorePlayer for RPi2 Model B

    Hi All,
    I've got a now redundant Pi2 that I want to experiment with PiCorePlayer on. At present I am using a really old ReadyNasDuo which is stuck at LMS 7.80. So I'm missing out on a lot of stuff. It's slow but it does what I need it to mostly. I'm not expecting speed increases from the RPi2, but hopefully the ability to go with LMS8.0 for BBC sounds/spotty and other plugins.

    What release can the Pi2 handle? Looking at release notes 3.20 talks about RPi2/3. The info talks about using older releases on newer hardware but not the other way around.
    Thanks
    Adam

    I would suggest to use the newest version on your RPI - that will give you the best pCP with most options and fewest bugs.

    I updated a Pi2B to the upcoming pCP 8.1.0 earlier today.
