Re: PI 4 - can't change desktop resolution VGA

Just to clarify, setting via EDID doesnt work with this VGA adaptor as it doesnt return any information to the pi. Which would be a bit odd, since the way the EDID information is communicated to the host PC uses the exact same method over the HDMI interface as it is over the VGA interface, so no co...

Re: Where can I get a Pi Replacement?

Hi, I don't know where to get a Pi Replacement from. It's from 2017 and its RPi3B. I want to know if I could replace it even though it's from Amazon. On Amazon things tend to change a lot now. What could I do? What do you mean by "replacement"? Do you simply want to buy another one? If so, just cli...

Amazingly, the Pi 4's USB 3 bus is fast enough to drive a gigabit network to its max (for reading files).

The gigabit Ethernet interface on the Pi 4 is connected directly to the bus - not via the USB controller. (Also, USB 3.0 runs at 5Gbps, which is five times larger than 1Gbps).

Thank you for your reply.

There would not be a 64 bit Raspbian beta version to download somewhere ??

I want to be alpha / beta tester if that's possible :)

Regards.
Raspberry Pi do not currently produce a 64-bit operating system. There are 64-bit OSes available from 3rd parties, however.

USB 3 powered hub

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good USB 3 powered hub? I need one to connect 3 bus powered USB 3 hard drives to my Pi 4. At the moment I'm using a Pi 3B+ with the 3 hard drives connected via a USB 2 hub, but obviously this could do with being upgraded once I swap it for my new Pi 4 :D It ne...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

Does that mean the SOC can address 24 GB ? There may be an off by one error in my math and there are probably no suitable packages with 24 GB available so let's say 16 GB would be possible? 24GB would be 8 of those 3GB DDR's in the iPhone X or 6 x 4GB chips from the Pi4B4.

Re: Kodi is broken on raspbian buster

I am not even sure if a version like Stretch, that is, compiled for the Broadcom legacy driver, will work on the Pi 4. Not if it tries to use the Broadcom legacy driver on the Pi 4. There is no legacy driver on the Pi 4, since the only graphics driver is the new one, i.e. the open source ARM-based ...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

By my reckoning, it will fit into a RPi3B official case with that side removed, as a temporary measure until the RPi4B official case is available. It is available, but in such limited quantities.

Yup. I upgraded a Pi 1 with 512MB memory to Buster and discovered Kodi doesn't work, so that will be getting put back on Stretch for now. Not really a problem as I don't use that Pi very much - it got Buster first so I could test if everything still worked before I moved the more important Pi's only...

Re: Kernel only boots on old firmware

The simplest way to get both Pi's working is simply to download the latest version of Raspbian and use that. Upgrading the firmware using sudo apt update, sudo apt upgrade is the recommended way of upgrading the Pi firmware when running Raspbian - if you do anything else then you risk things breakin...

I see sdram_freq defaults to 3200!

That's a big improvement from 450 ....

Indeed. That's because the BCM283x uses LPDDR2, while the BCM2711 uses LPDDR4.

Thanks. There was nothing obvious that said "This is the driver the Pi 4 uses by default", so I wasn't sure which one it was. raspi-config also still says it is experimental - is this still the case on BCM283x?

Re: Raspberry in Tesla Model 3

When the Pi's USB port is operating in device mode, as it must do to be used as a mass storage device, you can only attach one thing to the USB port. Whatever you attach to the Pi's USB port when it is in device mode *must* be a USB host. In this case, that would be the dashcam. Your only option is ...

I would personally go with btrfs, since this merges the filesystem with the volume manager, so should be easier to use.
