Stereoscope

So, I have this idea for a stereoscope. I'm thinking 2 Pi ZeroWs, one configured as an access point, the other a supplicant which connects to the first. Samba server running on the access point. Upload stereo pairs to the samba server into directories called "left" and "right", second Pi runs rsync ...

Re: Using Raspberry Pi Zero W (OTG) as Access Point not possible

This has been driving me a bit crazy too, but my issue turned out to be quite simple to resolve in the end - my choice of wifi passphrase was too short. Changing it to something with >8 characters resolved the issue. I found the problem by manually running hostapd from the command line : sudo /usr/s...

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

OK, I've now reinstalled everything that was there before, when I got the glitches, and they have not returned. So it looks like the lesson to be learned here (for the moment at least) is: pick the OS you want and download an SD card image for that, rather than using NOOBS and picking the OS whilst ...

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

I rather stupidly wrote: @Dom - I've now done a clean install from debian6-19-04-2012.img, edited config.txt to rotate the screen & disable overscan. Glitches gone now, so we can definitively rule out a hardware problem, I think. It had been a long day - I copied & pasted the name of the wrong image...

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

Forgot to include this bit in my last post:

I also get glitches using a different monitor with the rotated display, in this case an older 1280x1024 flat screen, using a HDMI-DVI cable. As before, no glitches in normal orientation.

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

Dom asked: Can you provide your config.txt? What does "tvservice -s" and "fbset" report? Can you reproduce it with stock raspbian apps (e.g. terminal/Ephiphany)? If you can explain exactly what operations you did. My config.txt is somewhere below. It's a bit long, sorry about most of it being commen...

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

Dom asked: Can you confirm if Pi1 has the same glitches (when using the same sdcard image)? I didn't think the SD card from a Pi2 would work in a Pi 1, but it does, and I can confirm that there are no glitches when using the same card in a Pi 1 model B.

Re: Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

Thanks for responding, Dougie, It's a run-of-the mill Iiyama E2274HDS - 1080p flat screen, HDMI, DVI and D-sub inputs, using the HDMI input for the Pi 2.

Pi 2 Screen Glitches in Portrait format

I'm getting screen glitches when moving, opening and closing windows. The corrupted bits of screen can be very persistent, hiding bits of window and not going away until the whole window is explicitly redrawn. Here's a screenshot that shows the sort of thing I mean: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 7 available

Today I like to inform you about what's going on with SqueezePlug development: The lasts weeks I did a lot of testing with new hardware devices. I've tested sound cards and new server platforms. As sound cards I tried to test the HiFiBerry and the Wolfson sound cards. You may ask why "tried". That'...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi ready for download

Hi Bradypus, Are they the exact steps you carried out? I did the same, but used a 8 GB SD-card. The server comes up, play list scanned etc, but I can't get a sound out of the rpi, either via the headphone socket or the HDMI connector. The old version of squeezeplug worked fine. Not quite - The firs...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi ready for download

Outstanding work, Thomas! I've set up my Pi with the Logitech Media Server and Squeezslave, and I have to say, I'm amazed how good it is. Hi fifthQ, did you try to control the Squeezeslave via an Android-Squeezebox-App, and if so, is it something that can be used in every day life (in terms of spee...
