Re: Camera Interface Specs

The missing of a reasonable fast interface into and out of the device may be the reason for its reduced success. You have an amusing definition of success.... Neil Id think such people also request that Ford make their basic compact cars do 0-60 in under 5s, and complain bitterly when Ford point th...

Re: Networking a Model A Pi

I set my Model A up using a Model B, 256MB v1. Mainly because I had the B on hand before the A arrived. After much swearing and cursing, I had an Edimax EW-7811UN connecting nicely, powered down the B, removed the SD card, put the adapter and SD card in the Model A, booted up and it worked first tim...

Re: Firefox

Is applying specific patches the same as a fork? I don't really know have an opinion, and don't really want to start a debate on that. Not starting a debate, but it does depend what you do, it sounded more than applying a few patches, was a whole patch and rebrand thing, which would be why you usua...

Re: Firefox

Ice Weasel is a name that Debian uses to refer to the browser as the Firefox trademark rules prevented them from using the branded version as they wanted under their definition of Free Software. The trouble being, they werent just redistributing Firefox, but modifying it and effectively forking the...

Re: 3 Raspberry Pi's, multiple Power Connectors

The caveat with that is that the current supplied is limited to 500mA, which is just enough to run the Pi, but definitely not if you plug in any USB devices.

Re: 3 Raspberry Pi's, multiple Power Connectors

Should be easy, just depends if you want working or pretty. Get a 5V 3-4A power brick, can be USB or a jack socket. Get 3 micro USB cables and cut off the full sized USB ends. Get a terminal block, or prototype board if you enjoy soldering. Connect the 3 red wires to the +ve from the power brick, an...

Re: Camera Interface Specs

Oh I agree completely, add-ons and increased market for the Pi can only be good things, if nothing else they will push the cost of each board down, making them even cheaper. I think the "problem" starts when you want to add things that require extensive work from the Foundation and/or Broadcom or th...

Re: Camera Interface Specs

I believe you are vastly underestimating the market for a digital video-in solution, even without HDCP. I dont think people underestimate potential markets, its just that the Raspberry Pi is a "small low cost computer for education". As soon as you start adding more things to it, particularly when ...

Re: Camera Interface Specs

Perhaps there is another way to achieve your goal?

Does it have to be real time video processing via a controller?

Would almost real time work, such that you have a camera that streams to something, and the Pi transcodes it into H.264 or just outputs it via HDMI?

Re: Camera Interface Specs

I thought that men who have such vast intelligence, knowledge and wisdom as to be able to diagnose me as obsessive / compulsive for keeping this thread going would certainly be able to provide an “off the shelf” solution for my technical requirements.

Re: Camera Interface Specs

Isn't it easier to use an external h264 encoder connected via USB or a network camera with h264 support instead of looking for someone spending month in developing something like a HDMI interface? You'd think so, wouldn't you. Just some people have an idea and won't abandon it as long as theres a t...

Re: Camera Interface Specs

Broadcom (very busy at the moment and will NOT be interested in the project - no money in it) Opening up their SoCs to the DVR and video processor market has no money in it?

Re: Camera Interface Specs

Please remember, I’m not talking about raw CCD output. I’m talking about “off the shelf” cameras that may also have some on board recording capability. These cameras are already tuned and output video in HDMI. Which is surely identical to how the Raspberry Pi with the CSI camera will work. Camera (...

Re: No Display with Riscos

Maybe you have the same problem I had, it sounds similar. The Pi booted fine with one of the Linux images, but the RISC OS one did nothing at all, little flash from the LED and nothing else. Turned out it was my TV being stubborn and I added "hdmi_force_hotplug=1" to the config.txt and it then worke...
