Powering gaming Raspberry Pi 3 and official Touchscreen

Hiya So I am running a Raspberry Pi 3, with an official 7" touchscreen, in a nice case that I got. Now I want to power it with a battery/phone charger. I have tested with a couple of the small chargers as below, but that gave me 1hr 43 min, and another about 2hours https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazo...

Re: Official 7" Touchscreen

Hi guys Think I just sorted it !!!! So to help anyone else out there that suffers from this I read the Downloads page on Raspberrypi.org, which mentioned to extract the img from the zip using 7-Zip, I did so, and burned it to the sd using etcher.io, and it booted into the gui desktop straight away !...

Re: Official 7" Touchscreen

So this just keeps getting stranger and stranger. I have now hooked up the pi to the main TV, which is 1920x1080 and works with 2 other raspberry pi's perfectly.

@scotty101
That is not the case, it is definately going into X because the ssh/password change dialogue is graphical, and the cursor is following my finger on the touchscreen, it is not at the command line.

Hiya XBMC is exactly what you are looking. I run XBMC on an ubuntu PC, and use the TVCatchup plugin, it gives you most of the UK freeview channels for Live TV as you requested, other plugins are available for internet streams and on demand TV, no dvb-t card required.

Re: Software to display images full screen?

Not sure about that.

But you could crontab a script to run every 30 seconds or minute to see if feh is running as a process. If not it could start it with the command line as above.

Reply off list if you are not sure how to write this simple script
