Re: HDMI Splitter

I would also be very interested if anyone has got this working. I tried boosting the output using config_hdmi_boost=4 but with no luck. It boosts up to 7 but I didn't know that at the time. My pi is now tucked neatly in a flight case and getting it out is a huge faff. Can someone else with this prob...

Re: Switching Audio Output with a Button

I had to add the following to config.txt to prevent the audio being awful (white noise): disable_audio_dither=1 Unfortunately my HDMI splitter caused prevented an image appearing on the hdmi cctv screen I've fit in the box so I have had to remove the splitter for the time being until I figure out wh...

Re: Pi 3 CPU Fan

I bought this set: http://amzn.to/1WDOKsB Needs a bit of dremeling to fit properly around the micro usb and 3.5mm jack connectors. Also a bit of a pain to remove the SD card unless you remove some material from there. I soldered an inline 15ohm resistor to the fan to slow it down a bit (was quite no...

Switching Audio Output with a Button

I am building a SNES in a box with a 10" HDMI screen. Unfortunately the screen has no audio so I have set the default audio to the 3.5mm jack using raspi-config and have a small speaker connected. I also have an HDMI splitter that goes to a female HDMI port in the side of the box in case I want to p...

Re: which is better

Noob you deserve a medal for your patience! I got frustrated just reading this thread... Nexusrex buy the raspberry pi and start tinkering and then ask questions when you get stuck. There is very little you can do to break it and almost everything you ask is searchable via google. If you had the ras...

Re: Unreal Speccy Portable - ZX Spectrum emulator

Must add that all the other keys that I had to remap with loadkeys work unreal_speccy_portable. The arrow keys and "o" are the only ones that don't seem to. Not a huge problem in games and i have swapped the keymap so that the arrow keys don't require the shift key combo. Will only be a problem if i...

Re: Unreal Speccy Portable - ZX Spectrum emulator

Hi Andrey, Thanks for your reply. Haven't had a chance to try fuse yet but "o" is 164 because I have my pi in an old spectrum with the membrane keyboard plugged into a flexible rubber keyboard USB controller. Also found that I couldn't use caps shift+ 6 (or 7) to move down or up menu (works in conso...

Re: Unreal Speccy Portable - ZX Spectrum emulator

Hi Andrey, not sure if you are still working on this program or not but I've found a bug whereby keys with keycodes over a certain number aren't recognised. I.e. I have the line keycode 164 = "o" in my loadkeys map file and it works at the console but not in the emulator. I've also found that pressi...

Re: Unreal Speccy Portable - ZX Spectrum emulator

Got this running with the zx membrane keyboard mapped but have problems with the mapping when I go into the emulator. If you could add shortcuts to the menu items that would be incredibly helpful as the main problem is navigating this. I.e. pressing q when the menu is up exits etc.

If your TV is on your network can you not use that to stream from your android phone? Samsung Galaxy S2 has something called Allshare which allows you to stream to a DLNA client or a Windows Home group (even though the home group itself is an abomination :lol: ) You're quite right but it's still th...

Well, that's fantastic news. If they release the raspberry pi stuff for free, I would pay a small sum depending on features and lag (i.e. £3 if it is only good for streaming video and £5 if it's good enough to use for gaming) to get the Android software ad free from google play.
