Hi KLL,

TRYING TO USE the PI camera v2, works fine locally but not with VNC i.e. remotely. Any help appreciated - thanks
Pi camera preview / video doesn't use the framebuffer so VNC will not show it.
RealVNC has an experimental setting which can do it, but I'm not sure about the speed / quality.

Re: Rainbow Screen - even after reading the Sticky

My knock on the PiHut is that I assumed they would at least include the heatsinks!!! Why? Standard Pi don't come with heatsinks. I had the right image. I used the same 4.2 and 4.3 that I used on the Pi2. That's probably too old. Download current version (or download / install current Raspbian witho...

Did the step before that run without errors?

Re: direct ethernet connection to raspberry without router

In order to connect two devices together over ethernet without a router is to use a cross-over cable . A standard cable would make the the Pi's TX connected to the PC's TX and same with RX. They just can't communicate using a standard cable without a router unless it is this type of cable! Wrong. T...

No.

I've never used SD FOrmettar thing and everything works fine. Clearly disproving that which was asserted.
