Re: Android App to shutdown, reboot, ping

Did you try the back-button? once or twice? Or stop the app (by app manager. don't delete data.) and start again. If settings inserted correct, it will start with the startscreen. But it should be enough to use back button, if all settings are inserted. I am using it on ICS and Jelly Bean and it wor...

Re: Android App to shutdown, reboot, ping

Hm, did you insert the settings data like host, user and password. The app makes no sense without these data inserted. It controlls the RPi over SSH and needs the data to connect. So without these data, the user never reaches the other screens. Can't get it working on ICS - never gets past the data ...

Re: Android App to shutdown, reboot, ping

hi Fabi280, nice solution, but I don't like have to install and configure things on the RPi. For my solution, you only have to start ssh server. On my Raspian it is started automatically. And than you you have to install the app on your phone, enter the RPi-Host-IP, the username and password and if ...

Re: Networked Speaker/ USB Soundcard

I started to use mpd with MPDroid and it works fine. I only connected the RPi with LAN, AudioJack2Cinch with my StereoReceiver and with power. No Screen connected. But I got the problem, how to shutdown the box. It's not good to simply plug off from power supply, but i don't like start a pc or lapto...

Ok, but the shutdown question is a newby question and so it would be interesting to put an info in the basics forum.

What do you think?

Re: Android App to shutdown, reboot, ping

Why not use an android ssh client? I like to have a simple solution where I install and insert the credentials once and then controll the RPi by buttons. Don't like to bind per ssh client and enter the commands by my own. And it also works for people that are not interested in linux. For informatio...

Re: Someone likes this metal case?

Think its not to big. If you put all the connectors on your pi it becomes to the same width and height. And for me, I don't need to see the led indicators. I created an AndroidApp to controll my RPi. It shows me, if it is running and its possible to shutdown with halt or restart. as i see its nogood...

Hi everyone, here are some photos of my new metal case with red lid. What do you think what it is worth? If you like to do case modding yourself you can find the basis case here: http://www.ebay.de/itm/251119551203 https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1631844/RPi/IMG_20120726_213527.jpg https://dl.dropbox.com/u...

Re: RPi metal case

So, here is my newest version of RPi case. It's the same case, but a little bit more case-modding. If i find an angled USB-Power cable, it will be possible to bring out all the cables at only one side. The RPi is held by an selfmade plate from KAPA-Plates. At the end the lid is varnished in red. htt...

Re: RPi metal case

Does someone know a solution to bring out the RPi connectors?
E.g.: A HDMI connector mounted in the case and connected with a short cable to the RPis HDMI connector.

RPi metal case

My solution for a RPi metal case. It's a rectangular tin in sandblasted optic with single lid. I fixed the RPi with cutted and self-adhesive Kapa panels. The cuttings where done by a dremel. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1631844/RPi/case_RPi_01.jpg https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1631844/RPi/case_RPi_02.jpg

Re: crackling of sound after some minutes of playing webradi

Is this using hdmi or analog audio? The analo audio is definitely at lot worse quality than the hdmi variant - I suspect this is due to the state of the analog drivers which are still being worked on. It is using analog audio. But when it works for some minutes and than starts crackling and after r...

Hi to all. I'm trying to use Raspberry as player for webradio. With VLC it started, but i got some errors and it was crackling from beginning to the end. So I tried "mpg123" and it starts fine. But after some minutes of playing it starts crackling. Not so much and aperiodic, but its nerving. After s...
