Re: starting omxplayer in .profile

it still doesn't work for me. i am using the CLI. if start omxplayer directly from the command prompt it works. but if i start it from a .sh script (i noticed it doesn't only happen if i put it into .profile) then it doesn't react to any keyboard presses. i have to reset the pi afterwards. does nobo...

Re: Pi 4 questions

but why would a big.LITTLE CPU be advantageous for spectre mitigation? in my understanding out-of-order execution simply could be disabled in a big core and then power consumption also would go down and be comparable to a little core? so better put in 8 big cores and disable out-of-order execution i...

Re: Pi 4 questions

People would *like* USB3. People would *like* support for more RAM. However, there is nothing to suggest that those features will actually be part of the SoC that goes into the Pi4. It is *speculation* that those features will be present. Now, as it happens, I think there is a decent chance that th...

Re: Pi 4 questions

i am also very excited already even if it still is at least a year away. :)

i think the main features are pretty much clear (usb3 and support for more ram) but how they will achieve it while keeping backward compatibility (will they?)... i have no idea... :)

starting omxplayer in .profile

i would like to start omxplayer automatically after booting. so i have put it into .profile and it works fine but i also need to be able to quit it with esc. why doesn't this work if i put stuff in .profile? how can i achieve this in a non-complicated way? :)

@Aydan: oh! i see! i misunderstood the gadget setup.

@aBUGSworstnightmare: sorry, i was refering to Aydan's post.

@DavidS: it's not only a presentation of still images. it should be video with 25fps. but i will look into the SPI nevertheless. thanks!

Re: HDMI splitter?

thanks! the piwall project sounds interesting too.

about that gadget thing... are you sure this would work with a raspberry pi 3 as gadget and zeros as "clients"? since in all tutorials i saw it was the other way around and the zero always was the gadget?

Re: HDMI splitter?

price isn't my primary concern. i would like to avoid having to deal with 20 (or so) sdcards and linux installations. :) any other ideas to make this more convenient? net booting doesn't work with pi zeros right?

(i think at the pihut you can order 2 pi zeros per order (one pi zero + one pi zero w).)

HDMI splitter?

i am doing an art project where i need to display videos on a lot of small screens. i was thinking of waveshare 5" screens with a resolution of 800x480 for example. i would like to avoid having to use one raspberry pi per screen though since that would be quite cumbersome. does anyone know if there ...

Re: issue with waveshare screens

i don't think that's the issue. i made the correct settings in config.txt according to the waveshare wiki. and if i turn on the screen before the raspberry pi it reliably works. the problem just arises if i power it from the raspberry pi's usb. then the start up order seems to be a bit random and so...

issue with waveshare screens

i use various kinds of waveshare screens for my projects. there is one problem though. i think the raspberry pi requires that the screen is switched on before itself gets switched on so that it can recognize it. but i would like to power the screens from the raspberry pi usb so that only one power s...

strange behaviour when turning on raspberry pi with a relay

for an art installation i use a raspberry pi with a 5" hdmi screen. it seems like the raspberry pi doesn't recognize the screen if it doesn't get turned on before the raspberry pi. so to make this fool proof i used a relay which turns on the raspberry pi a few seconds after the screen. it seems to w...

I'm not sure what you mean by "stuff just gets copy&pasted thousands or millions of times". Nobody designs like that. Hardware or software.
what i meant is that chips can have a billion transistors but a lot of this number can be things that repeat a lot, like sram cells.
