Re: Python Script with SCP on Boot not working

Welcome to the Raspberry Pi forums.
Any ideas?

Might this be a result of the Raspberry Pi Network connection not having been started at the time the startup process runs your script?

There is an option in the raspi-config utility to control this behaviour. Option 3, then B2.

Re: Computer challenged looking for advice or Raspberry Pi

Welcome to the Raspberry Pi forums.

The replay part of your project is certainly possible.

The recording part is not possible without some sort of audio input additional hardware: no current model of Raspberry Pi board has any built-in audio input from which to record.

Re: ssh file cann't turn on ssh (OaS: NOOBS_V_3, Board: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+)

Welcome to the Raspberry Pi forums.


The NOOBS Installer is a Graphical User Interface that under some circumstances can make it easier to install an Operating System such as Raspbian onto your microSD card.

It is not an appropriate tool to use for a headless setup.

"doesn't work" is not a sufficient description to indicate what aspect of your code you need assistance with.

Link to release notes should be added to DOWNLOADS page as well (https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/) , then I could have figured out myself.

There are already THREE links on that page to the Release Notes.

yes, the yellow wire is connected to the VCC of the PIR Motion sensor and connected to 5V0 on the T.Cobberplus. The PIR is correct as well.


And is the 5 volt pin on the Cobbler/Breadboard connected to the 5 volt pin on the 40-way header of the Raspberry Pi board itself?

Re: Raspberry Pi B Raspbian OS not logging in - loop of login screen

Lots of possibilities and permutations - you just have to choose one you are comfortable with.

If your goal is to use the 16G card eventually, you could build a fresh OS on that, and then use it as the 'rescue workstation' to retrieve the vital files from the unbootable card.

Good luck.

What is the maximum SD card size for this model?
There is no meaningful maximum - the technological limits are beyond the capacity of any card commercially available at the time of writing.
