Re: Raspbmx XBMC and PlexXBMC problems

Another RaspBMC & Plex user here. Everything was working fine for me until this morning. Now everytime I try to start Plex up on my Pi, the thing hangs on the xbmc background screen with no text & no response to remote control inputs. Bloody annoying but at least Plex still works on my ios devices, ...

Yeah, i've swiftly realised that I need some python help so a workshop on this would be good.

Re: Raspberry Jam for Milton Keynes

dwch, glad to hear you resolved your issue. Was it an easy fix in the end? I find myself requiring assistance too this evening. I have written a simple python script that listens to the serial port and displays anything it finds. If from the command line I type "python test.py" my script starts runn...

The project will of course be demonstrated, all I need is a hot air balloon, two dozen chinamen, a dinosaur egg and a vinyl record, preferably jazz.... Seriously though, I plan on adding a proximity sensor to a spin bike and sending the data to the Pi. I will then create a game that forces you to ex...

Is it wrong that a grown man was seen this evening dancing around like a lunatic by his neighbours because he had just sent a few characters through the ether from his Arduino to his Pi :?

You can now operate your GPIO's via a browser apparently.

Anyone interested in giving this a go and feeding back? Im busy getting my pi & arduino talking via RF.

By the way you didn't need steps 5 and 6 but I guess you did that deliberately so you would have a backup copy of the driver on the Pi.
Always good to have a local copy.... ;)

Re: Raspberry Jam for Milton Keynes

Gonna give the rpi-update a go tonight. Sounds like it will kill all of my hard work getting wifi up and running, but at least someone else has trodden the path and provided instructions. Lets see how I get on.

Has anyone tried installing/using RiscOS yet?

Hey Daniel, Glad to hear you took my advice and got the Edimax, also pleased that you found it easier to get up and running. I think where I went wrong was not updating my firmware, as I didn't believe any updates had been released (and also didn't check) but sounds like the latest firmware supports...
