Pi3 Power Supply and Pi2

Noting the slightly higher voltage, can an Official Pi3 power supply be used with a Pi2?

I have a spare Pi3 supply, but due to a failed ex phone charger now have a pi2 without a supply.

Re: a train sim for pi?

Siam have for years produced a lot of train sim games mainly for DOS. If there is a suitable DOS emulator for pi these might wll run. Some demos on site but avoid the windows ones.

Re: audo/video sync in dvb-t

If you are still using XBMC try disabling the "I have a dolby capable receiver " option (or something similar - not by XBMC at the moment). I found this reduced the problem. Then try pause/resume if it recurs to a lesser extent.

I echo Dweebers words of caution. Check everything before you press "start".

Normally you would be using the Physical Drives which are the numbered drives in the bottom part of the list.

For those having problems. The alternative I use is Roadkills Disk Imager from http://www.roadkil.net/program.php/P12/Disk%20Image I find it works most of the time. On the occasions it does not I find that using the "restore device for formatting" button on the Raspbmc installer fixes the card witho...

Re: 1080i AVC (h264) Tv recordings no longer work - Black Sc

ITV HD Video is mpeg4. These did play with XBMC. I have also noticed that now they do not play. Video's from BBC1 HD and BBC HD played sometimes but not always. I suspect the ITV HD problem is something to do with an XBMC update and will in time sort itself out. If anybody in UK has a 512 version Ra...
