Re: gpio and android

I'm putting my pi into an old nes, interface the original controller ports directly to the gpio pins, relatively easy to do and cheaper than converting them over to USB using a teensy or other avr. What I want is still possible using USB, and I'll have an open USB port on my hub, but I digress. I wa...

Re: gpio and android

Netflix relies on the DRM server being available, in all the current android ports this is missing (some sort of compatibility or licensing issue on the pi). So really you've lost your only advantage That sucks about the DRM issue, I really wish Netflix used HTML5 or another DRM solution other than...

Is there any way to interface with and use the gpio pins while running Android? Some of the things I want to do with the pi require the gpio pins. Thanks!

Re: OpenELEC & DarkELEC compiles

What is iLivid? I'm not sure I want to download it so I can use your compiles.

edit: nvm figured out how to download it, I hate sites that try and con you into downloading their crap with huge DOWNLOAD buttons and then hide the link for what you really wanted to download in the first place.

Re: Is there any place distributing R-pi in US?

I ordered mine through element 14, back in april. Just got it July 13th. After taxes and shipping it came to 44 usd. I'm sure lead time is way down now that they've increased production. From the tracking number it didn't ship from the uk.

auto start x on boot

I tried following the instructions in magpi issue 3 to auto login and start x upon boot, but all that happened is it stopped booting and halted respawn for 5 minutes. I've since wiped and rewrote the image to my sd and it boots now. Its the Pisces build.. Thanks for your help.

Re: Raspberry Pi very slow. Is this normal?

Luke, I'm running Raspbian now, overclocked to 900mhz without overvolting (no voiding of the warranty yet!). It's so much more usable than before! Before you give up on your pi, at least try one of the raspbian images. You can find the official soon to be foundation backed version ***here***

Re: Networking

I seem to have solved my own problem. Switched to Raspbian, and now I have no problems with networking, and I have it overclocked to 900mhz without overvolting. So much better now! I'm actually posting this from my Pi itself. Last time I tried to post, it took so long to log into the forums I gave up!

Re: ODROID-X....Raspberry Pi on Steroids

There has been another quad core arm board announced, this time using a Tegra 3 chip (clocked at 900mhz) and in an ITX form factor no less, no more custom cases, just buy one premade (many HTPC type cases to chose from). No word of cost just yet, but I'd guess somewhere between 100 and 150 USD. Pers...

Re: Raspberry Pi very slow. Is this normal?

I too have noticed my pi is very slow with midori. I haven't tried raspbian yet. I have overclocked it, and its MUCH more usable at about 900 mhz, which was far too unstable without overvolting, which would void my warranty. (Usb errors, keyboard acting like it had stuck keys). I'm also using a clas...
