Re: Adafruit Speaker Bonnet breaks scratch :(

Just for the sake of asking the question: have you tested with the Speaker bonnet only? Or is your motor controller still connected? Which board do you use?
The RoboHAT uses pins needed for I2S Interface (18-20; https://4tronix.co.uk/blog/?p=1196).

Re: How to attach Raspberry Pi Official Display to the CM IO Board V3.0

... Use a USB hub and a USB WiFi stick i.e.. You can also use a USB ethernet adapter
Or the hardware you use for posting in this forum. Download the file, copy it to USB stick, insert into CMIO, copy to the RPi and use it.

Do you have the Adapter board available?

yes. Either buy the Pi Zero camera cable, or the official Zero case if you're fine with a short cable.

Re: How to almost "shutdown" the Pi, only HDMI showing an image, to save battery

The only thing that the Pi does is, every two hours, do some computing, even networking, and automatically change the image displayed via HDMI. Then sleep for 2 hours. The image should keep displaying for these 2 hours. your 'image' which will be shown for 2 hours is all static, right? So why not u...

Re: Field Recorder

XLR is just the type of connector, so more intereting is the type of audio you want ro record: balanced audio or AES3 digital audio?

For differential audio have a look at PCM1865 as it supports (up to) 4 channel differential input. Connetion to host is via I2S.

Re: i2c2 (hdmi) speed

I see!
How do you initialize/access the HDMI I2C bus from the ARM (as it is normally used by GPU only)?

I'would be interrested to know as it could allow re-writing of EDID data without the need of external tools.

Re: i2c2 (hdmi) speed

What is your intention of using HDMI-I2C port? it is usually used as Display Data Channel, i.e. for reading EDID data of the connected monitor.
