Re: SIP client with auto answer?

I don't need the auto-answer ability, but this really simple rpiphone thing looks decidedly intriguing for a 1970s-rotary-phone-converted-to-VOIP-whatsit thing I'm building. I need to find a USB audio dongle whatsit for further testing, but the latest binary definitely runs on a vigorously-updated-l...

Re: BBC Radio-4-Matic

Quick update - now with full AC power for everything , with the whole lot running off a single 12V power brick. (Previously the radio side had been running off batteries. Which lasted for an amazingly long time - audio amplification was only starting to get a bit faint by early June. 1970s electroni...

Re: DNG and Digital Cinema Cameras

Slightly off-topic - a bit higher-end than a Raspberry Pi camera, but some nutters have got raw video capture working on an EOS 50D. Might be useful for someone?

Edit: I didn't get this link from Slashdot! Saw it on various photography-related sites over the weekend... ;-)

Re: Case

Realised I could clamp the ribbon cable coming out of the camera board between two bits of Lego, giving a surprisingly solid support. There's nothing poking into the cable, and there's usually a slight gap between the two pieces like that anyway. Next step: adding motors and the Mindstorms whatsit s...

Re: PIP - Raspberry Pi IP Sender

Nice work, but it's already really easy to find a Raspberry Pi on a network through Zeroconf – install avahi-daemon on the Pi and any other Linux machines, then Bonjour on any Windows PCs and you’ll be able to connect straight to ‘raspberrypi.local’, or whatever the Pi's name is. There’s instruction...
