Powering multiple pi and boards

Not sure which area this is best posted to, but I am looking for recommendations for power supply solutions for powering more than just a single pi. I am using a zero and a servo controller board which wants its own power not power from GPIO and potentially want to expand the solution with more boar...

Mobile Streaming Media Server

Just looking for a little advice before I spend too much time digging. I would like to build a portable box that uses an rpi to provide streaming media over a wireless network to devices like iPads (other tablet computers are available :) My idea was to have something like XBMC on the rpi with a lar...

Re: GPIO advice

<t>Guys thanks for the responses.<br/> <br/> rurwin<br/> <br/> I had my own concerns about hadling the circuits direct, I think a daughter board that isolates the R-pi from the external currents etc... is the way I would go.<br/> <br/> meltwater<br/> <br/> Thanks for the links to the tutorials I'll ...

Re: GPIO advice

<r>Sorry this may be off topic but.<br/> <br/> I am thinking about a r-pi based fencing scoring machine.<br/> <br/> Fencing uses a set of open and close circuits between the scoring box and the two fencers and their weapons.<br/> <br/> The traditional solution is a big expensive dedicated black box....
