Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Sorry for the delay, I've been ridiculously slammed lately. Finally managed to draw one on paper. Probably not as nice as I could have made it, but it gets the information across. The push button switch create a temp connection to signal the screen to turn on. The rest is dependent on the the conne...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Yes. Don't forget to connect all wires to USB end and have it connected, or the screen will not stay on. so i have to put an usb connector to the another end too and plug it in the laptop/phone? at that end,the 4 pin is enough right? I did a test of this to be sure, and 4 pins work thanks.so on the...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

When I tested this, the 5 pins need to be connected, but my setup is a little different since I use the breakout board instead of the 5 pin cables. It's worth a test... but my setup has 2 breakout boards connected to each other with the 5 pins. Theoretically, because the cable should work also. tha...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

This setup worked with the laptop. I used it with my Mac and it works great. In regards to the cable, you'll probably need to strip the connector end of the female micro-USB as most likely there is not a "sense" wire connected to the ID pin. I'll see what I can do about the diagram. i found this: h...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I don't have a schematic of the setup, but the video should explain what I did (if you can stomach the poor quality of the video). Basically I connected all the pins of a micro USB female breakout board to a micro USB male breakout board (simply grounding the sense pin will not work... I tried). Th...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I was able to get this working on the pi with a prototype switch. If there is enough interest, I may make some available for purchase. I was also able to make the connection to my Mac as well as a second monitor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-a3qS45Z_ro hi.can you post the schematics? thanks
