Re: RPi(Retropie) totally wrecks HDMI-CEC !?

Thanks for your reply! Apparently I’m not the only one having problems with this. So your setup also suffers from things around CEC that weren’t working anymore after connecting a Pi. If I mention correctly we both ended up disconnecting and resetting the CEC/ARC to make things work again. But, in t...

Re: RPi(Retropie) totally wrecks HDMI-CEC !?

Thank you very much for your reply! Unfortunately in my case even when disconnecting the Pi, the tv and/or receiver still just don't 'see' each other anymore, so it looks like the hdmi handshake is totally gone. Also this can't be recovered just by re establishing the handshake since no settings has...

The issue in short; Samsung uhd 65" tv (2016) Onkyo tx-nr616 receiver PS4, bob-player. The RPi2 put with hdmi into the onkyo, that's connected on the arc-input of the tv. Every...

Re: What shader is/are this?do you know?

So you'd prefer smoothen things up a bit, without additional lcd/scanline squares or lines? I also wanted to take a look at what I can accomplish that way, but then it should be really smooth I personally think. 2 or even 4 times hq is still much to blurry imho (in front of large screen, while sitti...

Re: Sound quality on RPi2 ?

Anyways, if audio is not good enough for your needs or your future project, I recommend getting yourself an add-on board for your RPi. Or maybe an USB soundcard even.

Re: Raspberry Pi 2 Pin out

Quick question, wonder after looking at the link that's given here... I see there's multiple ground pins. If I, in example, plan to connect a couple of led's and a switch, is it recommended to use multiple different ground pins from the gpio connector, or doesn't it matter if I connect all ground wi...

Don't know that type in particular, but do have tried several cheap-aftermarket-stuff usb controllers, and the ones I tried all work. As soon as the one you pick does work and is recognized, the changing of buttons often is accomplishable by just modifying your cfg files. Not really gamepad specific...

Little bit late, but indeed there are couple of things that need to be moved in the install.

Curious, and in need of advice... What emulator or emulation front-end / image do you use, or prefer? Made a little poll for this also. If that isn't appreciated, feel free to remove moderators.
