Re: HTPC uses

1) If you mean playing Blue Ray discs (via a USB Blue Ray player) the short answer in No. 2) You should have no trouble streaming 720p from a NAS, I can stream 1080p over smb with no issues. 3) Look on the back or front of the plug; it needs to be 5v and be able to supply at least 750mA (ideally 1A)...

Re: RasPi Power Issues

@Kuki See here ( http://authenticate.rsdelivers.com/staticpages/pi/returns.aspx ) for RS returns. I don't think RS are coping with any aspect of distributing the RPi. The demand for it seems to have totally overwhelmed them, which is strange because I've never had a problem using them in the past. J...

Re: HDMI CEC and XBMC

@Sappher If it's not working with your current set up your probably running a version from before libCEC was ported. The latest builds of OpenELEC and Raspbmc both come with libCEC set up for the Pi and it works "out of the box", so an easy option to get CEC going is to install one of those. Alterna...

Re: RasPi Power Issues

This has affected mine for a few weeks now and I've gone back and tried older versions of OpenELEC with the old firmware and its no different (might be an idea for you to try too, see here - http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/ ).

@mahjongg thanks for your input and advice, I appreciate it.

I was able to reproduce it by running OpenELEC ...

Re: RasPi Power Issues

Searching the forums it appears f3 is meant to trip at 1.1A On the schematic found here ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Raspberry-Pi-Schematics-R1.0.pdf ) f3 is labled as 1A1 6v, which supports what I found in the forums. The fuse on my Pi is marked "7", so I assume the fuse ...

Re: RasPi Power Issues

Are you having your Pi overclocked? Maybe that's causing extra current consumption and might also explain freezing after a while. The TP1 - TP2 voltage should stay above 4.85V for stable operation. If the Polyfuse starts to trip, your Pi is either using 2 much current or your Polyfuse is defective....

RasPi Power Issues

My Pi has started misbehaving :( after months of perfect use. When I first got the Pi I was using an iPhone Charger (rated at 5v 1A) with a micro usb cable and later used a blackberry charger (rated at 5v 750mA). Both worked fine and did not cause any obvious performance issues or crashes until earl...

Re: Rewind And Fast Forward not functioning in XBMC

I've done some poking around and I believe (could be totally wrong!) this is down to omxplayer. In OMXPlayer.cpp I found this, which (I think) explains why /* only pause and normal playspeeds are allowed */ if(iSpeed > 1 || iSpeed < 0) return; I'm sure I saw somewhere else this may be related to an ...

I am having an issue with the fast forward and rewind functions on OpenELEC xmbc (r11298).

Are you referring to an external device, such as the Pulse8 adapter? Such a thing is not needed with this latest build. The HDMI CEC codes from the TV are recognised by software in RPi and are then sent as control codes to XBMC (currently via HTTP not via the Pulse8 libCEC route. I also have a Sony...
