[Solved] Re: Dropped frames capturing 120fps MJPEG video with Pi4B

This appears to be essentially resolved but I'm not sure why. Ran a sudo apt update / sudo apt full-upgrade / sudo rpi-eeprom-update on the 29th of April (Wednesday evening) This was in readiness to have a look at the new boot diagnostics at the weekend. However - without even having physically chan...

Re: Dropped frames capturing 120fps MJPEG video with Pi4B

Hi Hermann, Just checked again on the pi4B2 again and cut and pasted the command from the last pi3 run raspivid -cd MJPEG -t 10000 --mode 7 -w 640 -h 480 -fps 120 -a 512 -pts 480_pts.txt -ex off -ss 8000 -o test_vid_480_10_pts.avi and get the same issue (334 frames lost, largest gap 33.185ms).

Re: Dropped frames capturing 120fps MJPEG video with Pi4B

Hi Hermann, Thanks for that - that confirms my suspicion about the different numbers in the analysis . I'll check once again that the commands were identical (swap camera back to 4B2). Either way, I'll confirm that and then see if 6by9 sees this and recommends which repo to log the fault against tom...

[Solved] Re: Dropped frames capturing 120fps MJPEG video with Pi4B

Hi All, I haven't seen this specific Pi4 behaviour issue referenced in the forum before. TL:DR Capturing a 640 x 480 at 120fps MJPEG video with a V2 camera into a tmpfs "ramdisk" loses about 320 to 350 frames in 10 seconds with a pi4B2 but none or 1 with a Pi3+ (A or B) . Has anyone else seen this a...

Re: Issue with connecting GPS module to raspberry pi 3b+

Hi dipayan,

You should not need an additional USB to serial device, looking at the links there is a USB to serial chip (CP2102) built in to the module. I would just connect it with a micro USB lead and check that a ttyUSBn device is created.

Hope this helps,

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 to 12V Induction sensor

Hi gxmark,

It doesn't look like the ground of the battery powered circuit is connected to the Pi's ground. Without this, the pi's input is just floating / acting as an antenna.

Hi seanspotatobusiness ,

The Leafpad text editor uses the ctrl-C ctrl-V method including "over"paste - note however middle button paste could bring things selected outside leafpad.

If you ever do find a way of getting a system to cache the map tiles at the viewing end I would be most interested - a truly portable/isolated visual ADSB receiving station :-)

Hi Nebelhom,

The issue with the mounted / not mounted disks is that you tried to u(n)mount /dev/sda not /dev/sda1.
so here I see them
