Re: Using the pi as Hi Fi system.

Yes, it is of course. I have been using Volumio for music for a while now, on several builts but also have a Raspian with a DAC testing at the moment. Depends on the age of the old tablet you can use VNC to control the raspberry pi if you run Rasbian. I also installed Pulseaudio so I can upsample th...

Re: Building a Raspberry Pi network stereo

Have you heard of Volumio and Music Player Daemon based, Pi compatible software especially for music players? It has an interface you can control using your cell phone via wifi.

Galaxy tab is complete different market, and a lot more expensive. I was talking about the possibility of hacking this devices and use it for other stuff.

Re: Cheapish HDMI portable display

to RMW5: If someone has no access to electricity then he will have to buy a generator, and the list goes on.  Why buy everything new? like Grumpyoldgit said, you can get most of the parts that people throughs away or 2nd hand.  That is the fun part of the Pi, DIY on the cheap.

<t>RMW5, it says computer not a computer system. You can use your TV as monitor, USB keyboard + mouse u can get for £10, 8GB, SD card £5, Powered USB hub £5, a small computing board that you can play with priceless! For everything else there is loansharks …<br/> <br/> (prices according to UK stock e...

Re: Adding more RAM - presumably impossible?

<t>It is all very well about how code should be written but when you look at the target purpose of the Pi then you realise its limitation/simplexity is its strength.<br/> <br/> Also there will never be enough RAM, you will just have to work with the limitations.  If it is too little for you then Pi ...

Re: Video Capture Input

Well, we will probably have to wait for the user base to increase before more hardware, software supports and "hacks" available.

Oh, Found a chip that does HDMI-CSI but could be expensive.

Re: Video Capture Input

<t>I guess it will be a while before the camera interface is available to us then.  What I am wondering also is that the availability of cameras with the CSI interface and prices.  Also that CSI interface will need a converter of some kind to conver say a composite video input to CSI if it is not di...

Re: Video Capture Input

<t>OK, I know that the broadcom 2538 SoC H,264 encoder is not covered by the license agreement in Raspberry Pi, so I am talking about NTSC/PAL video quality capture. I understand that you can use a USB video capture device with Linux which is good enough resolution from the source video.<br/> <br/> ...

<r>Go to <URL url="http://diydrones.com/">http://diydrones.com/</URL> they already has all the software you need to do that. RPi is not great for something like this.  However, I can think of with the RPi onboard, you can have video overlay of flight information, or running a image recognition softw...

Re: GPIO Programming Question

<t>From what I can see in the BCM2835 there are only 2 PWM channels which is not enough for most people.  However you can get a servo controller with a UART interface which is cheap enough.<br/> <br/> The Arduino is a mature platform with many libraries support many hardware.  It would be much easie...
