Re: MPEG / VC1 licence on PI3 not working

DirkS : Thanks. I'd set it as low as it would go, because up until today, I'd had no problem with the Pi graphically and I wanted as much memory as possible to be available to the OS. I'll try it at 96, see what happens. DougieLawson : Problem was down to the GPU memory split. Increasing it to 128 c...

MPEG / VC1 licence on PI3 not working

Earlier today I ordered an MPEG2 and VC1 decode licence from the Pi Store, to use on my new PI3. The keys arrived within an hour or two, I copied and pasted the keys from the email into /boot/config.txt then rebooted. Following a reboot, I checked the keys were working by using the command from the ...

Re: Wheezy apt-get update errors (collabora)

The collabora and wolfram repos haven't been needed for ages and are safe to remove. However, wheezy is unsupported. Ah, ok. I went to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and commented out the entry in collabora.list and wolfram.list and the problem has gone away. I realise Wheezy isn't supported, just not go...

Re: Coloured square / red square when powering up

Having just booted from a new raspbian-only image dated 2015-01-31, I notice that the red square doesn't appear when booting. So it seems it's a noobs issue. I can cause the multicoloured square to appear by booting with my 1A psu, but don't see coloured or red square when using the 1.2A Nokia PSU. ...

Re: Coloured square / red square when powering up

rpi-update hasn't changed anything I'm afraid. The red square appears during the initial display of the rainbow coloured splash screen during both a cold power on and a reboot, and it's still doing that after running rpi-update. NOOBS or dedicated raspbian image? what does vcgencmd version report? ...

Re: Coloured square / red square when powering up

Actually I fixed a bug (last night) that could cause the *red* square (over-temperature) to appear during boot (without there being anything wrong). If you are seeing the *red* square then I'd be interested if running rpi-update fixes it. rpi-update hasn't changed anything I'm afraid. The red squar...

Coloured square / red square when powering up

I replaced a Raspberry Pi Model B 512Mb with a Raspberry Pi 2 recently. The original Pi was running happily on a 5v adaptor, indeed I was able to overclock it to 1Ghz and had no problems with it crashing. The New Raspberry Pi 2 shows a multicoloured square when first powered up, then again a little ...

Re: Pi gets hot and freezes

Is it possible that the problem here is with the power supply? I've a Pi running Raspbmc. It gets quite hot sometimes. It used to occasionally crash when updating the library, but at no other time. I felt the Pi and found it to be hot, then assumed that the heat had caused the crash. As it turned ou...

Re: Linux kernel is now 3.18

I wasn't familiar with using rpi-update to select different versions of firmware, so this took me a while, but I can now confirm that reverting to the previous firmware with : sudo rpi-update f74b92120e0d469fc5c2dc85b2b5718d877e1cbb fixes the problem, and I can now measure the temperature with the 1...

+1 for rollback I'm rather ignorant as to the more detailed workings of rpi-update, and previous firmware versions. How can I get rpi-update to revert to the backup it makes (does it?) or how can I download the previous version that was working fine for me? I last ran rpi-update a few days ago and a...

Re: Linux kernel is now 3.18

Hi,

Just to add that I ran sudo rpi-update on my old Model B 256Mb about an hour ago, and can no longer see my 1 wire DS18B20+ temperature probe after a reboot. Previously it's been running for about 6 weeks without problem.

I have nothing showing in /sys/bus/w1/devices :(

Can you test two different firmware versions to see if there's any difference: sudo rpi-update - latest firmware sudo rpi-update d9eb02 - previous firmware and compare? Both versions gave pleasantly (if not shatteringly) loud analogue audio from the audio jack. I couldn't tell any difference betwee...

Comparing B and B+ through some cheap PC speakers, the B+ is still much quieter than the B. I then tried amixer cset numid=3 100% and this killed the sound completely.
