Re: Run AI with Raspberry Pi, Introducing Grove AI HAT for Egde Computing

Wonder how the tools will run on a Pi4. "If". I just tried installing the board in Arduino IDE on my PineBook (arm64). Can't install it on that either. When I get a chance I've got a few other SBCs with RPi compatible GPIO headers to try, but I feel the result would be the same. It's a nice bit of ...

Re: Run AI with Raspberry Pi, Introducing Grove AI HAT for Egde Computing

My preordered one arrived yesterday. It's a well made board. I look forward to there being more information so I can make use of it. At the current time, their Arduino board definition doesn't seem to be compatible with the armhf version of the Arduino IDE. Ie can't use that on the RPi. I'm hoping t...

Re: Removable HDD caddy as case

But I could also use the ATA connector for GPIO. That was one of the things that interested me. I'd have to make sure that the earths on the IDE cables or the connector aren't all joined of course. Now if I was feeling a bit silly I could give it SPI ethernet via the IDE connector, but it doesn't se...

Removable HDD caddy as case

Hi. This is just an idea that popped into my head. It's only partially formed, because I can't think of an actual use. I have some removable ATA HDD caddies which are next to useless these days. I had an idea of mounting a Pi in one, but I can't think of why. They have a few desirable qualities as a...

Re: PLS HELP! Strange Audio issue :(

Did you fix it? Around the end of September the audio part of the firmware was kind of broken. I had the same issue with the builtin PWM audio.

Re: Least objectionable cheap DAC?

I have considered that but doesn't HDMI audio force resampling to a certain rate for standard compliance? Beyond that it is a possibility. But what's the analog output like on them?

Least objectionable cheap DAC?

Hi! I like to listen to music on one of my Pis while I'm doing other things on them. So far I've found the best experience for me is using RISC OS with DigitalCD (audio player) with my cheap kit valve (tube to non Commonwealth residents) preamp and amplified headphones. I can't narrow down why RISC ...

Pi3 too big for it's breeches!

I really like my Pi 3 and the case. Trouble is when I connect a ribbon cable for breadboarding or a daughterboard to the GPIO I can't put the lid on because there's not enough clearance. It's a shame because I quite like the case. I also have an acryllic case but I don't like how the Pi rests on it ...

Re: best addon screen (please list what works ... URL is fin

Do you mind if I jump in on this? I've been looking for similar for my Pi 3. Do the ones intended for the Pi B and such work with the later models? Aliexpress has some real cheap ones listed that state that they are for the early models. As far as I know it shouldn't matter, but I don't know everyth...

Re: Advice needed on programming language choices

Probably not the answer you were after but I'm using an esp8266 and the core to suit for the Arduino IDE to run an egg hatcher. It monitors temperature and humidity and controls the heating system plus gives me a Web page based live update on its stats. You could go for an easy mode embedded solutio...

Re: omxplayer very slow on Pi 3

I just want to add something else here. With the experimental OpenGL driver enabled, display_rotate does nothing in config.txt I run in portrait mode normally, but the Pi only works in landscape with the OpenGL driver. Not a big deal, and not surprising but it should be mentioned to prevent frustrat...

Re: omxplayer very slow on Pi 3

I see Thanks! Kudos to the developer(s) of the OpenGL driver still. It's a major achievement. I disabled it and both omxplayer and mplayer started working. omxplayer was definitely using hardware mpeg decoding, which was nice. mplayer was using software of course but CPU usage was still low enough i...

omxplayer very slow on Pi 3

Hi there. I thought I'd give my Pi 3 a spin with multimedia. I didn't get it for that but why not, eh? I bought the Mpeg 2 license and set it up. It's definitely right. But the thing is, every video I've tried with omxplayer does the same thing. It goes fullscreen, and after a long wait starts to pl...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi there! I've been interested in electronics since... well a very long time now. I'd taken an unwilling break from it mostly for nearly a decade until recently I was forced to dig out all my old stuff to solve an urgent problem with what I had at hand. It meant finding enough hardware to do the job...
