Re: Can Pi zero wifi do 2K HDMI?

Does the OP mean 'real' 2K (i.e. 2048x1080 or the reduced height versions 2048x858) or HD (i.e. 1920x1080)

They are different formats.

Re: HDMI to Displayport adapter and Pi

You cannot easily convert HDMI outputs to Displayport... Have you really got an HDMI to Displayport adaptor? The adaptor I suspect you are using (if it cost $10 rather than $100) is almost certainly a "passive", one-way, Displayport to HDMI converter (the reverse of what you are trying to do) and yo...

Re: Switch off WiFi/BT modules on Raspberry Pi 3B

Alternatively, if you don't want a BT/WiFi sub-system, the new Pi2 B v2 may be worth a look. It's now based on the same 64-bit Quad Core BCM2837 SoC as the Pi 3 B instead of the previous 32-bit Quad Core BCM2836, but is physically the same as the older Pi 2 B (no WiFi/BT subsystem, LEDs in the same ...

Re: convert PC monitor to HDTV

The answer will very much depend on where the original poster lives. If they are in the US, Canada, Mexico or Korea - then OTA TV is broadcast using 8VSB ATSC standards. There are some USB tuners available for this (though choice is more restricted and prices higher than those for other standards). ...

Re: Raspberry pi3 as a media hub for Movies and Hulu

Hulu is a DRM-ed streaming service - similar to Netflix. Same or similar limitations to running Netflix on a Pi (no DRM etc.) The Pi isn't a great platform for most of these services (though it was possible to run Amazon Prime in Kodi on a Pi 2 at one point - and may still be)

Re: Analogue PAL TV on Raspberry Pi

So you want to receive analogue PAL UHF (and possibly VHF?) composite broadcasts. For that you will need a tuner+demodulator - which will take the RF and convert it to a baseband composite signal, and then a composite video capture solution. There were USB analogue capture cards with tuner+demodulat...

Re: End of MPEG-2 license

Isn't the work on video decode in the GPU (rather than the hardware video decode module) more aimed at adding newer codecs (as the VC-4 is fixed in the video codecs it can hardware decode) like HEVC?

Re: Model A+ memory boost

Could the A+ be using the Zero's version of the single-core SoC with 512MB of RAM?

I think separately we're hoping for an A3 and a CM3.

The A+ still has a role as it is likely to consume less power than an A3 (as the single-core 32bit SoC draws less current than a quad-core 64bit one?)
