Re: HP Pavilion 23xi

I did try a different HDMI cable, borrowed from the TV, and that had the same problem. Anyway, perfect now.

Re: HP Pavilion 23xi - SOLVED

I bought a HDMI to DVI-D cable today. Put the /boot/config.txt back to default, i.e. all commented out, connected the RPi up, switched the monitor on and then the RPi. Everything works a treat, I'm now getting the full 1920x1080 at 60Hz as expected. So, in case anyone else has the same issues, they ...

Re: HP Pavilion 23xi

Thanks for your reply. The EDID setting suggested by the monitor were: CEA [mode=1] 2 3 4 16 17 18 19 31 DMT [mode=2] 4 9 16 35 47 58 82 83 85 Of these mode=1 group=2, =3, =17, =18, and mode=2 group=4, =9, =85 were the only ones to output, but of those only those at 480p or 576p, so nothing like the...

HP Pavilion 23xi

I've bought an HP Pavilion 23xi full HDMI 23" monitor. Trouble is other than the following settings in /boot/config.txt hdmi_group=1 hdmi_mode=1 I can't get the monitor to display the output from the Raspberry Pi. Does anyone have any recommended settings for this monitor? The default operational mo...

ASM book to learn from

Can anyone suggest a good book to learn assembly programming for the ARM CPU from? I'm following through the fantastic Baking Pi tutorials (currently reached Lesson 08 Screen03).

Re: OS SD-card (Baking Pi), using the Pi.

Edit the source files and build the projects on the pi itself. Make sure you have installed YAGARTO on the pi. Then copy the kernel.img file from the build folder and copy to your other SD card which already has a Raspian image on it, replacing the existing kernel.img file (rename the original so yo...

Re: First c program write in raspberry pi.

I like working in the terminal on the RasPi and use nano as my text editor to write c and c++ programs. However, if you are a beginner you would be best advised to use an IDE to help, Geany is a good one on the RasPi, but would strongly advise that you install the debugger plugin for it, which will ...

Re: In a program detect keyboard char

It might be better if you were to explain exactly what you are trying to do. If you put a function that requires user input in a condition inside a loop, like you have done, then of course execution of the program will halt at that point and wait for user input before continuing.

Re: set up ssh

What router are you using? No doubt you will be able to gain access to the router which is normally located at 192.168.1.1 and that should give you access to the admin functions from which you can "see" the connected devices, which if the RPi has had SSH enabled on it and is connected you should be ...
