Re: Wifi stopped working

When booted with cable connected then removed after boot, what are the ping times on the wifi ie ping 192.168.0.1 (oops in your case you probably need to use 192.168.1.1 - just use ping -b 192.168.1.255 instead) leave it for a while to see if there are values over about 10 - which may mean wifi inte...

Re: hotspot again! - no system file editing

The normal version of VPN will not run on top of this ie sudo openvpn- -config filename.opvn well it will, the DNS forwarding is mucked up and the solution is cludgy At the moment you have to use the gui (i'll try and sort the command line version later) To have your wired network protected by openv...

hotspot again! - no system file editing

wifi hostpot/access point - Four command lines and a reboot - which is much easier than previous! I stumbled on this while trying to get a gui on desktop that allowed me to use multiple vpn's. I suspect it will also work with stretch lite (non desktop). I Installed network-manager which controlled m...

Re: Bluetooth audio not working in Kodi

Works well enough for me and only goes wrong if you happen to select audio in the settings menu. I tried using /usr/share/kodi/system/advancedsettings.xml - the same thing happens I tried making the guisettings read only - it crashed I doubt you will be able to run a script in background to sort thi...

Re: Bluetooth audio not working in Kodi

For what I read, the main problem with Kodi and bluetooth devices through ALSA, is that, when you configure the device, it is loaded like a plugin and not a real device, like an USB sound card, for example. Kodi seems to not support ALSA "plugins" (don't know if it is the correct term), and so, it ...

Re: Bluetooth audio not working in Kodi

I can confirm DarkElevenAngel's method works when not in the desktop (to exit use CTRL-ALT-F2 and login) and mine works from the desktop. they are mutually exclusive! You need to make a .asoundrc file in your home directory defaults.bluealsa.interface "hci0" defaults.bluealsa.device "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:...

Re: Bluetooth audio not working in Kodi

I use the full version of Raspbian Stretch and connect to bluetooth from the desktop. I make sure I can get the headphones working first, edit the guisettings, then launch kodi from the desktop menu I actually got the audio device setting from playing around with vlc which gives an error if your blu...

EVILBLADE your so close to getting it working asoundrc is created when you connect the the bluetooth device via the desktop and is exactly what you have posted. now all you have to do is edit guisettings.xml and replace the audiodevice as <audiodevice>ALSA:default</audiodevice> then start kodi do no...

Re: Pi3 WiFi Access Point routed through VPN

More secured as in what? Hi, i was meaning where the .conf/.ovpn files and more importantly the login details of my VPN provider are located. Less so but also where the SSID password can be found.
