Re: New AirPlay Mirroring Server (Open Source)

Hi, First of all, thank you for this project, it's working beautifully! I see that it was recently changed such that a black screen appears when there is no connection. Is there a way for nothing to appear instead (so I would see whatever is running behind). In my specific case I'm running magic mi...

Re: AirPlay screen capture using shairpoint-sync

Hi, A few notes about your project: 1) shairport-sync is audio-only, to the best of my knowledge. For AirPlay mirroring, you'll have to use RPiPlay (an open source program I'm developing). 2) RPiPlay uses OpenMAX for decoding and rendering H264, which usually cannot be captured in screen shots. Howe...

Adding power control to USB hub

Hi all, I'm trying to add a software-controlled power switch to a USB hub I have. The hub uses the Terminus Tech FE1.1s USB hub chip which, according to the datasheet (linked below) has "Ganged Power Control" (which I found means that all ports share a single power switch). As far as I am able to un...

Re: Ethernet Adapter RPi Zero Problems

Did you find a solution to the problem? I think I'm seeing the same issue with the Realtek 8152B, a hub (either FE2.2s (Terminus Tech FE1.1s clone) or HS8836 based) and the Zero. It must be somehow linked to the Realtek 8152B and probably some wiring issue in the hub or the ethernet adapter. To answ...

Still not seen this though I have jumped to Mojave on one but of Apple kit.

Wonder if it’s an extension clashing?

Re: Clear last rendered frame

Video_scheduler is a red herring I think. You're flushing the tunnels, but not the input port of video_decode. The decoder therefore still has a chunk of encoded bitstream to decode, and keeps going with that after your flush. The workaround is pretty much the expected way to do things, in that you...

If you have a tunnel into video_render, then I would have expected flushing the tunnel to have worked. Have you got a simple test app that I can try (much as I hate trying to find my way through the IL framework)? I have now investigated the issue and created a simple demo program. It seems like ca...

Hi, I’m using OpenMAX in my program for rendering H264 video streams (I have a decoder, scheduler and renderer). The stream can be interrupted (paused), and when that happens, I’d like to clear the last rendered frame, so that what’s underneath is displayed again, like before the video rendering sta...

Does it support AirPlay 2? And can I thereby choose my rpi as one of many outputs? AFAICT, it's not even known what AirPlay 2 means for AirPlay mirroring protocol-wise. So no, AirPlay 2 is not supported. For more details on the protocol evolution (or how much about it can be reconstructed from info...

Re: Setting up network bridge under Buster

Well, what you added to dhcpcd.conf affects wlan0, for sure. If you did not block dhcpcd from taking care of eth0 -among others-, it will. That is its default behavior: fetch an address via DHCP for any unconfigured interface that comes up. Add "denyinterfaces eth1 wlan1 usb0 ..." to the beginning ...

No, no.

There is the old way of configuring networking under Deb...
