Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

How do I get the camera to automatically begin motion detection after a reboot?

I have the schedule settings set to the default Day Mode = Sun based but on reboot the Motion Detection button says 'Start' which I take to mean motion detection is not running.

Thanks

Re: P1 & P5 pinouts R1 & R2

Wow very useful.

Please can you add a similar chart for P2 (and I do mean P2) which on the Rev1 board is populated with a very useful header as it has extra GND pins

Thanks
Paul - still Googling for a P2 pinout

Slightly off topic: but has anyone a solution to robustly mount the SD card - I want to use a Pi in a nasty vibrating installation and don't want the card falling out. Suggestions?

Re: Injecting 5v on to the GPIO 5 volt pin to power RPi - do

So you probably killed RG2,
RG2 visually looks ok. Can I cut it off and solder another one in place?
A good candidate for conversion to using a switched regulator if all the other parts look ok. :)
Could you kindly expand? I had assumed it was unrescuable

Re: Injecting 5v on to the GPIO 5 volt pin to power RPi - do

Ah I just found the issue - brain fade!

I had assumed a project that I was converting from Ardunio to RPi had a 5v PSU .....it did not instead it was 12v . Doh!

Glad to hear people powering pi through gpio pins - makes installation in a small box easier

Injecting 12v on to the GPIO 5 volt pin to power RPi - don't

To save having to have the USB micro cable sticking out I thought I'd power the Pi by connecting the +5v and 0v pins (Header P1 pin2 and Header P1 pin6) to my 5v PSU - the same technique worked lovely with the Arduino. However on the Pi, the red LED came on, there was a little tiny 'phut' then the r...
