Hi.
Since the Raspberry are completely sold out everywhere, in all models, I would be interested in some other alternative product. I have seen some, but they do not work well and there is no support, neither from the manufacturer, nor from a community that maintains it.

My application is simple, but still I don't know if there is something serious alternative to Raspberry that works. I just need to receive commands through the serial port and play videos for playback according to the command I receive.

Something so apparently simple, it took me a long time to do it on Raspberry, make the serial port work, cancel running videos to launch a new one, configure the boot to have a black screen and optimize it for a fast boot. Having to start everything over again in another system can be a nightmare, but if there is no stock of Raspberry or expected date, something will have to be thought about.

Regards

There's a parts shortage on. Check stock next year or so.

I'm on the "wrong side of the bed" regarding any company/person that are taking resources that should have been used used for youth education and and use them commercially. Especially when equivalents exists for marginal extra cost. If you don't like it, so be it, also gmb.

someone is buying a product that's doesn't have restrictions on use, you think they should they have to pass some "worthiness test" to buy it?

manufacturers sometimes restrict commercial use of devboards because they are sold at a loss to advertise parts, I don't think Rpi are selling at a loss

A hardware solution is to control a cheap video switcher via a GPIO or perhaps there is a video signal line you can ground to blank the display.
