Re: Any word on the missed-keystrokes/repeating keys problem

I did. The Apple keyboard works.

It's just that this setup is rapidly becoming a bulky, cumbersome pain in the ass.

Re: Any word on the missed-keystrokes/repeating keys problem

I tried using an external power supply. Then I tried using both at the same time.

Then I tried powering the Pi using only the dock but with the Apple keyboard, and that works. So power does not appear to be the problem.

Raspivid locks the Pi up after every couple of executions

Hi all. So far I'm pretty disappointed with the camera. Aside from frequent visible glitches in both the preview and the recordings, raspivid locks up the Pi after every couple of runs. I was just executing it with various effect and exposure-mode options (one at a time) to see what they did, and I ...

Re: Any word on the missed-keystrokes/repeating keys problem

Thanks for the replies. And I have updated Raspbian. I was using a Motorola Atrix dock, which is simply a USB keyboard, HDMI monitor, and battery in a laptop-looking clamshell; it makes a really cool monitor and keyboard combo for the Pi. Or, at least it would, if the keyboard were functioning prope...

Re: Raspivid recording quality poor and glitchy

I'm getting glitches in the preview when recording, so I don't see what this would have to do with the SD card. The glitches are there when I play the file back. Also, a file-copy test to the SD card shows write speeds of 16 megabytes per second or so. I find it hard to believe that it can't sustain...

Any word on the missed-keystrokes/repeating keys problem?

I've updated my Raspbian, and my Pi is still essentially unusable because of missed keystrokes and repeating keys. I've tried swapping the port that the keyboard is plugged into, and even dual-powering the thing with an external power supply and battery power through a dock connected to the USB port...

I moved the keyboard to the bottom USB port (closest to the board), and the problem still happens.

This thing is useless as it stands.

Use Raspberry Pi to calibrate TVs and monitors?

Hi all. I'm often asked to calibrate friends' and family members' TVs. I don't have a Blu-Ray calibration disc yet, but I was thinking that a Raspberry Pi could be an even better calibration tool. You could even power it with a battery if you wanted to take it to a store to check out some TVs before...

Re: Multiple keystroke and temporary failing keyboard

It's the Atrix phone dock made by Motorola. There's an Adafruit tutorial about it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZkz_a52I6s&list=PLBCAE1FE90CD5206B&index=6 The only other thing plugged in is the usual Wi-Fi dongle. Can't remember the brand, but it's the most popular one for the Pi. I think th...

Re: Making Pi discoverable to Macs with Avahi isn't working.

Ha! Well, now my keyboard drops or repeats characters at random, another longstanding known bug. It's way worse than the Avahi problem, since the Pi is nearly unusable at this point.

I guess I can more easily shell into it now with a computer that works, so it's a trade-off...

Lastly, you need to do some configuration.

Well, after no changes other than a couple of OS updates, this suddenly works. The Pi shows up in Finder's network browser.

Re: Multiple keystroke and temporary failing keyboard

Hm, more than a year later and this problem still exists. I've updated to the latest firmware, and I'm getting missed keystrokes and endlessly repeated characters at random but frequent intervals. Test points show that the voltage is 4.89.

Yes right. I’ve pulled from the GitHub repo, because Andy added two fixes. First for disabling the timeout and more importantly the -g parameter where you can change the keyframe interval. Since the segmenter only starts new segments at a keyframe changing -g allows using different least common mul...

I never set the DNS manually, and right now it's pointing to the router. The name without ".local" doesn't work either. I also did a NOOBS install just a couple days ago.

Re: Making Pi discoverable to Macs with Avahi isn't working.

Thanks. The name is valid ("pi256"). I already checked it in both hosts and hostnames.

I can connect to the Pi from the Mac using AFP if I manually type in the IP address, and the hostname is shown correctly in the Finder sidebar. But pi256.local never works.
