Re: HDMI Ethernet Channel - Would it work?

Do you know if the SoC also does not support HDMI ARC? Both are part of the HDMI 1.4 spec. What exactly in the SoC is preventing this sort of data from being accessible to the cpu, why does it allow CEC access but not the other channels? Or is it related to the closed source parts of the firmware?

Cross-compiling for 3.2.27 kernel

I'm using the tools from the raspberrypi github page, specifically the arm-bcm2708hardfp-linux-gnueabi compilers, however the resulting binary ends up being (when read with the file command: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 3.3.4,...

Re: opengl/ changing screen resolution

AFAIK, RGBA32 is just four 8-bit unsigned values, one each for red, green, blue and alpha.

Building a cross-compiler for Raspbian on Mac OS X

Hi, I currently own a Mac and would like to cross-compile programs for the Raspberry Pi rather than having to wait an age for native compiles. I've followed a lot of different instructions around the web, so far I've: * Compiled binutils for arm-bcm2708hardfp-linux-gnueabi * Compiled stage 1 of gcc ...

Interfacing with a board from different supply

I've been given a lab kit from Uni for my subjects which contains a microcontroller, LCD and some other peripherials. It runs on a 9V which is then stepped down to 3V3. Is it possible to connect any of these digital signals to the Raspberry Pi? And if so, what would be the best way of connecting it ...

Re: RPi Model C

I think it would be a big mistake if the foundation were to introduce new models at this point because it would fragment the userbase. They also have other things to worry about like the camera module and the stuff (cases, software, documentation etc) for the educational release. Yes, but that's th...

Re: GL extensions

Check http://elinux.org/RPi_VideoCore_APIs#OpenGL_ES or http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 318#p36318, they should list the extensions that are reported as supported by the pre-compiled libraries.

I really wish that a new model would use at least ARM7 or higher, having to recompile everything for ARM6 is not fun at all.

My Raspberry Pi intermittently turns off after booting, and I've tried all combinations of different USB cables, charges, SD cards, and what peripherals are connected, all getting me nowhere.

Re: opengl/ changing screen resolution

Its pretty damn pointless to give us header files and sample applications then go back and say sorry we can't tell you how they work but your still allowed to use them.

Re: Switching video modes

You should be able to use /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -e [GROUP] [MODE] to try out the different modes... If you get stuck with one you can't see however, you might need to type blindly or ssh in and go back by typing /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -p Setting the config.txt is the right way to go about it though o...

I just realised that the Alpha boards had holes for screws to screw them into a mounting board from the photos on http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/78 and this link , but the production board doesn't have any making mounting it on a board or in a case very difficult. Was there a special reason the...

Looking at the PCB and the schematic - the data lines on the microUSB port used for powering the device goes nowhere, and it feels to me like a great letdown if someone wanted to use the Pi as an extremely overpowered USB device (think like http://hakshop.myshopify.com/products/usb-rubber-ducky ) or...
