Re: Tandy Multiface

Just to correct a few misunderstandings here .... its an older version of the gertboard's PCB with Tandy parts, probably not completely compatible with the version described in gerts gertboard manual, but close. it was made before gert and farnell decided a pre-built version could be cheaper than a...

Re: Wireless N

OK, so a bit more about the 72.2 mbps vs 150 mbps connections. The issue seems to be channel width on the 2.4 GHz band. If the channel width is the standard 20 MHz, the "150 mbps" labeled adapters (like the typical ones we're using with the Pi) are restricted to 72.2 mbps. To get 150 mbps, you have...

Failing Wi-Fi Adapters? RA2800/5300

Howdy yall, I have been through three Wireless adapters in the past two months and can not figure out why they are failing. I am using one specific model based on the Ralink 2800 chipset.

Just trying this now, it seems to be stuck at "Pipeline is PREROLLING" Any ideas where it's gone wrong? Did your pictures capture okay? Have you checked your permissions on the folder that you are outputting to? Does it error out or just sit there? How much CPU is it using? It has been working pret...
