Re: Overheating issue

Received my 8GB model this morning, it currently idles ~ 10c above my 4GB model ( 48 - 51 v 39-40 ). I should stress that this is an unfair comparison, the 4GB is in an Argon One case (which is basically a large heatsink) whereas the 8GB hasn't found a home yet so is running outside the case. Ambien...

Re: Raspberry Pi OS (64 bit) beta test version

Just so happens I've a 3b+ and 4b4 v1.1 idling around, I'll try it out on both once I get another couple of PSU's.

ETA: Scratch that, 8Gb model just ordered.

I can say that the Rapsberry pi has rarely seen stability and durability in operation.
Based on the rest of it, You might want to edit your post ;)

Re: RPI3B+ not booting up from Micro SD

OTP bits (ONE TIME Programmable) cannot be reset, however the 3b+ should have came from the factory floor with the relevant bit set, only the 3b may (or may not) need this set. In effect your 3b+ is already at factory settings unless you've messed around with the other OTP memory, I feel that your p...

Whenever powered on, a Raspberry Pi computer will always try to boot the system. What it can't do (as far as I know) is not boot after a power interruption (like you can configure in some other BIOS system So, if i understood ok, i can't use it as a router without an UPS.

Remove the spaces, I'll look at your config.txt later, busy right now but I'm sure someone will be along shortly.

Extending the console over two screens would be a very odd use case.
That's how I read it 6by9, it appears from the OP that that is what he wants to do though why? Clarification required I think.

Extend by width (why?) or extend by height (more feasible but again why?).
