Re: trying to buy more than 1 pi zero

Hi, this is an approach that I thought of as well but the P&P is as much as the pi zero itself so I will effectively be paying double for each single order. 4 pi zeros £20, P&P, £20, total £40.!!! (I live in Spain)

trying to buy more than 1 pi zero

I'm having great difficulty in trying to buy 4 pi zeros (1.3) for my 4 camera cctv project. Every where that I try to order 4, they say limited to 1 per customer. How do people get more than 1 pi zero (the cheap £5 version). Its a joke!!!

Re: RaspBMC + Video file failures

I have exactly the same problem with Raspbian and xbian and tried every different way possible but still it freezes, so I have given up trying to get it to work. If someone does get it working 100%, then I would be interested in having another bash at it.

Re: [TUTO] Install and SetUp minidlna media server

This is crystal clear, especially for a linux novice such as myself. Why can't others detail their instructions as clear and concise as yours rather than assume we know the basics and ramble on with little bits of code here and there with bits missing in between. I don't know how to do it but your c...

openelec freezing on Raspbian

I am on the verge on giving up with this. First I installed wheezy and got openelec running, but could not get it to see my wifi adaptor, although it worked under wheezy. I then upgraded to Raspbian and could not get openelec to work. I was advised to add the '--force-architecture' command, which I ...

Is there a version of openelec that will work on the new raspbian package, especially a version that will enable my wifi to work with openelec. I currently have wifi working perfectly on my copy of raspbian.

Now it wont work at all and in the bootup messages, it says cannot find device "wlan0". Have you upgraded yet and manage to get the MicroNEXT dongle working with Raspian Che...
