Re: Pi device name not showing up on my router

No the other two PIs are DNS, I do have other things with static IPs that are showing up though.

Pi device name not showing up on my router

I just noticed that the device name for my PI2 isn't showing up on my router anymore. This was showing up after installing the PI2 with Rasbian, and still showing after I setup PLEX on the Pi. I think this must have happened when I set a static network address on the machine. Running the 'hostname' ...

Re: Another PI2 not booting thread, but...

I checked the capacity of the cards by loading then up with media file, and this all looked ok. I've currently got one of the 32GB cards loaded up with Emulators and roms for the Nintendo DS, and this is working fine in an R4. So it looks like the cards themselvs are ok. They were also bought from d...

Another PI2 not booting thread, but...

I've had my PI model B, almost, since the launch, and had my PI2 for a while and have had no trouble making bootable SD cards, but recently have I tried my PI2 with 32 and 64 GB cards and can't get them to boot. I've tried three (two 32, and one 64 - all Samsung branded), First I tried to burn off-t...

Re: Children programming the Raspberry Pi

I think something graphics-centric like the Dark Basic games-design language would be a good introduction, as children are now more used to immediate access to ‘flashy graphics’

Re: How is it for remote access?

Yes, I was meaning a 3G type device. A lot of the older ones tend to work best with Linux in my experience.
It would be interesting to see how your blutooth tests go as well.

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

I’ve just had a (very geekie) idea.
I can put one of these inside a Dreamcast and connect it up via an appropriate cable to combine my current DC/PC Linux/Programming setup all under the hood of the good old Dreamcast. Yay!

I want one… In fact I think I want at least three!

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

<t>I’ve got a couple of old hand-held TVs kicking around up the loft somewhere. I don’t think it would take much to modify one of these to take the board, and it should be relatively straight forwards to wire it up to the screen. It would be better in something with a higher-def screen though. My wi...

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

Hmmm, I would have had access to a 3D printer at my old job… unfortunately not now.
Then again if it’s general ‘PEN-STICK’ sized I’m sure there are plenty of cheep and readily available cases out there.

Re: What comms devices have been tested?

Thanks, it’s good to know the wireless options are being looked at, as these could open up a lot more possible uses.

On a similar note, has it been tested with older programmable/command-able serial devices, Laser-Disks for example?

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

Or on the more geek-ish side, how about a person monitor!
It’s small enough to fit on an arm/wrist strap and should be easy enough to hook up with pulse/heart/temperature monitors etc… and the software wouldn’t be rocket-science!

Should work well for emulating older home-micros and consoles.
Could get the kids interested in laughing at the old games, then interested in the programming side… just like much of us older generation did!
