Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Hey all, I've been working with the screenly API over the past weeks and thought I'd post some hints that might help out some other people. I've been using Python and found that the requests library makes the GET and POST process of interacting with the API very simple. It can be downloaded from her...

Surely that must be an issue with the iPad browser's html implementation and nothing to do with screenly?

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Thanks for you reply, I have looked at the unofficial documentation and I think I am applying them properly, however I still get a "Sorry, this page does not exist!" reply. I've simplified it as much as possible by using this cURL command on the pi running screenly: curl --data-urlencode "ids=2d8331...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I'm hoping to get some help on using the 'sort' API call as described here: POST /api/order Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded ids:"793406aa1fd34b85aa82614004c0e63a,1c5cfa719d1f4a9abae16c983a18903b,9c41068f3b7e452baf4dc3f9b7906595" // comma separated ids I've been using the Chrome POSTM...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

...but I'm not sure how to turn it off in between times I'm able to work on it. If you have a keyboard connected to the Pi, then press ctrl + alt + F1 which will drop you to a command line. Then execute the command sudo shutdown -h If you do not have a keyboard connected, then use Putty or somethin...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

However...I would like to be able to add the ability for someone behind the bar to press a button connected to the GPIO board, which then runs a 20 second video with audio along the lines of 'ladies and gentleman, the show will commence in 5 mins' and then another button runs a video for 3 mins and...

Re: Conceptual question - wlan0, wlan1, and usb ports

What is the order of the ports - is the upper detected first or the lower?

Thanks

Conceptual question - wlan0, wlan1, and usb ports

Hey all, this is probably a very basic question -

What determines whether or not a wifi dongle is wlan0 or wlan1?

Is it a matter of in which usb port the dongle is inserted?

If two wifi dongles are inserted, which is wlan0 and which is wlan1?

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hey all, my name is John and I'm interested in learning more about the Raspberry PI.

I live in East Texas, near Nacogdoches, so if there any other PIsters out here, give me a shout.
