Re: PHP

What sort of motor are you hoping to drive? A. Washing machine motor :-) or a stepper motor? I guess a stepper motor, but its actually easier to control a washing machine motor.. You're better off using a motor controller and interfacing to that, the next consideration is how you want to talk to the...

Re: Inexpensive (Basic Graphics) LCD Display

I've been playing with a 16x2 LCD Display - these are the results - http://youtu.be/dxdBxfTwA04

Its all written in PHP, rather than Python as I'm using it as a stepping stone onto another project..

Re: Using GPIO pins: Voltage

I 've already played with 16x2 LCD displays that have the HD44780 controller on and to reduce the number of pins used to drive I've used a 74HC595 shift register to interface to the display from the PIC, its high level input voltage is 3v15 and so able to be driven directly from the pi and should wo...

Re: S-Video port instead of Composite / CVBS or hack??

Even when using the analogue output, its important to set the correct standard and resolution. I seems to default to NTSC which when compared to the PAL standard isnt so good. I had a play with the Pi at the weekend on a Sony 21" OLED monitor, the HDMI results where stunningly good, PAL not bad afte...
