Re: Crackling sound from google assistant instead of spoken response

Well I'm probably not the most helpful person in the world and I know next to nothing about this sort of thing. But I'll hazard a guess that the Raspberry pi just isn't powerful enough to handle the algorithms. I would try going to a text to speech website (I used https://www.naturalreaders.com/onl...

Re: RFSniffer - Can't get it working

Ok, I soldered a 17.3cm wire onto the transmitter, however, nothing happens when using codesend. I think the transmitter is faulty as I think I have soldered the antenna properly. Any suggestions? Thanks.
