    You can install Hyperion in OpeneElec or in Retropie, but if you only want to have this working with the games, forget openelec. Follow this steps with fully working retropie 2.3 image:

    1. Enable SPI module in raspi-config, is in advanced settings. Then reboot.

    2. Install Hyperion as described in tutorial and reboot.

    3. Enjoy!!

    Actually you can use Retroarch with Openelec and play emulated games directly from Openelec and XBMC.

    Follow this guide: http://openelec.tv/forum/128-addons/72972-retroarch-addon-arm-rpi?limitstart=0

    I have it installed and it works like a charm. The only issue I found was everytime you start a game, you have to configure your controller. Maybe there’s a way to get around this, but I still haven’t found it.

    I also have build my Hyperion ambilight set with a USBTV007 EasyCAP capturing my TV output. I want it to capture also the Retroarch but I don’t know what is the priority given to Retroarch for the v4l driver. Can anyone help me?
