Re: How to expand to 120 GPIO?

Hi, I have a project where I need to control 60LEDs, 60buttons, and 60LCD displays. I know I am going to need at least 120 GPIO if not more for the LCD display requirements. What would be the best way to expand the current set of the Raspberry Pi 3? Thanks! https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/gpio-exp...

Re: New RPi B+: No wireless interfaces found

I have a brand new RPi B+ setup but am not able to get WiFi working. I see a lot of posts around this problem, but have not found a solution for me. What I've done: 1. Formatted a new SD Card using SD Memory Card Formatter 2. Downloaded NOOBS from here (version 2.8.1 release 2018-04-24) 3. Extracte...

Re: Distorted videos with iptv

I have raspberry pi 3 Model B and I installed LibreElec to see iptv with kodi. It happens that in programming with much movement of the camera, the image is with a blur. This happens a lot in games also with quality loss. I'm on a 60 mb internet from Tim Live and have no traffic shapping. Does anyo...

I wonder if there is a HAT for the Raspberry Pi 3 with two or three ethernet ports so the RP can also function as an ethernet switch.

Likely not as the GPIO I/O is not fast enough to obtain usable I/O speed..

Re: Share HDD with windows and Pi

Possible yes. But I am not clear which machine the HDD will be connected to, the Pi, the Windows machine or sometimes moved between them ? I any case its about installing and setting up Samba ( aka: CIFS ) on the Pi. - Either as a server for sharing the HDD to the Windows machine. - Or as a client,...

Re: How to find the IP of Pi 3 without monitor

You don't have a TV either, or know someone who has one you can use for 10 minutes? You would make things easier for yourself if you temporarily connect the Pi to a display so you can verify it is booting. If your router is not showing an IP assigned to a Pi there's a good chance the Pi is either n...

The device you are connecting to via USB is it recognised by the Operating System installed on you RPi ????
