Re: Transmit data entries to Raspberry Pi from PC

I think the other posters may have missed the point. You could simply enable the ssh daemon on your Pi then you could use SFTP to copy the files to it like you originally proposed.

Re: Raspberry Pi Model B not running for more than few hours

If I had to guess, I'd say your Bluetooth data collection program has a memory leak.

Re: Loop for command

The shell on the Raspberry Pi is bash. You can google looping in bash or you can look at the bash man page by typing:

man bash

on the command line.

Re: Login trouble

The default password should be raspberry, not pi. The username is pi.

Re: Control Raspberry Pi with own made iPhone app?

Well, there's Swift on the Pi: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=163043 And a quick Google turned up MQTT for Swift as well, so there's that. Or does Swift support a web server? Node.js, Python, etc. do. But you said you weren't interested in any other languages. I think he me...

In that case, I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Re: Control Raspberry Pi with own made iPhone app?

I set up my Raspberry Pi to be a controller for my pool/spa and I wrote an iPhone app that I can use to control it from anywhere (not just at home). Here is a screenshot of the iPhone app (I hope this works -- I've never posted an image on this forum before): image1.PNG There's really nothing magica...

Re: Looking for waterproof wi-fi antenna on short cable for

I've used this one outdoors. It connects via Ethernet but it works fine with the RPi.

He probably won't need such an in-depth knowledge of electronics if he uses the pre-made electronic ink module you referenced in an earlier post.

Re: raspberry Pi 3 supports the LabVIEW application (.exe) f

Even if you could install a full version of Windows 10 on an RPi 3, the LabView software is compiled for the Intel x86 processor family. It would not run on an ARM processor-based system like the RPI 3. Update: One of the other posters noted that there is a company that makes a product that allows y...

Re: Protecting SD Card: Delay before poweroff?

I never realized that SD card corruption was a danger when cutting the power to the RPi. That makes it a little impractical to use as an embedded device (imagine having to do a graceful shutdown when you unplug your microwave oven or TV).

Re: Using rotary switch with pi (Python)

Make sure you use switch debouncing (either in hardware or software), otherwise you'll get lots of intermediate states when you change the switches before it settles down to the final state.

By the way, you can leave off the the "-p 22" -- that's the default.

Re: convert PC monitor to HDTV

Silicon Dust has a tuner called HDHomerun that receives ATSC signals over the air and converts them to an ethernet stream (not sure about the format of that stream). You might be able to use that with an RPi but the RPi might not have the horsepower to decode and display that stream in real time.

Re: VNC at startup

You always have the option to ssh to your RPi from another machine to start VNC server. You don't have to leave it connected to a monitor and a keyboard.
