Haha yes! I will definitely be doing that, especially since it's going in my car.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Guess I'll put in a new order.

Re: Is my Pi toast?

D17 diode? Wow, that sucks... wonder how that happend :( Someone threw my Pi once, as I mentioned, but it just hit a wall then landed on carpet. I didn't think it was that bad, and it continued working afterwards so I just shrugged the incident off. Otherwise the Pi has basically either been on a ta...

Is my Pi toast? (yes!)

Hi guys. A while back my Pi stopped working. I figured it must be the SD card, then I got busy and only today managed to get back to trying it out again. The issue is that the red light comes on solid, and the green light is very faint. According the to troubleshooter, it seems like it's probably th...

Re: Wake from halt

Dweeber, hi. I'd love to know how you set this up? Is it possible to set up with a single button to do both (on/off, basically)? I'm putting my Pi in my car. What I want to do is have the Pi powered by the +Batt, so constant power (note: using a 12V->5V Buck converter). Then use a relay on the ACC l...

I'm also having issues. Fresh Xbian install last night. No Xbian option from within Xbmc. However, you can exit the program and it takes you to the config manager after a login. Setting up the Wlan there doesn't work for me though. Exiting the config returns to terminal and a "sudo iwconfig" shows E...

Re: Remote connection from iPhone without a router?

Thanks for the feedback guys. The issue I'm having is simply that the Pi doesn't want to connect to my cellphone hotspot (when using SSH).

The main problem with this setup is that there currently is no way to automatically power down the RasPi. I think there are three possibilities to solve this: 1.

Can Xbian/XBMC play flac music files? Given the Carputer idea, I'd love to be able to playback lossless format music, although I guess I'd settle for 320kbps mp3s.
