I’ve been using ohai’s excellent ruby-sdl in my quest to build a
TV + remote control multimedia jukebox interface. Everything is working
great so far but the documentation for ruby-sdl is a little lacking and
I haven’t found any mailing lists.
My specific question is how to force ruby-sdl to use directfb, such that
it displays on the TV out. I have it working in graphics mode on the
console just fine. I can get freevo, which uses pygame, which uses SDL,
to display to the TV, so I know it’s possible.
Has anyone tried this before? Or know of a better place to ask?
