Re: switch the ethernet off while using wifi

@pcmanbob : thanks, it works! ifconfig eth0 down does remove the interface logically and in addition does delete its associated routes , leaving the routes using wlan0 intact : which is the desired result ! Subsequently however ifconfig eth0 up does not automagically rebuild routes using eth0 . Oh w...

switch the ethernet off while using wifi

My Pi 4, running vanilla Raspbian GUI, has 2 network connections available, viz. 1. wired ethernet LAN (dedicated IP 192.168.1.10 provided by the DSL gateway's DHCP server) 2. WiFi access to a 4G mobile network IP 192.168.2.x by DHCP. My ADSL is slow but unmetered, 4G much faster but metered, so I w...

cheap hub or otherwise splitter, adapter ? ---> Pi 4's USB-c socket ?

Goal : to make full use of the R Pi4's USB-type C socket and its associated controller, while freeing the built-in USB-A sockets for other needs. Are there adapters on the market out there which would allow simultaneously and safely to : 1. feed-in the DC required by the Pi and accessories, and 2. c...

Will apps (TV), designed for mobile phones, work on the Pi ?

I never owned a cellular phone, smart or otherwise, so... this question may be very dumb : with Android on the Raspberry Pi 4, will it be possible to download and run so-called "apps" intended for the Android of "mobile" phones (or tablets) ? As for home internet access, I'm thinking of switching fr...

Re: Monitor w/ integrated speakers (HDMI) : Sound too weak

You have probably already checked but maybe the cable isn't plugged in enough resulting in a low sound. Another reason maybe that either a pin in the hdmi cable or raspberry pi port is bent or broken which if your unlucky enough could be your issue but this is quite unlikely as I have never had it ...

Hi! I have the Pi 4 output digital video+sound thru HDMI to a standard 22" display panel (BENQ GW2280).

On the Pi4 it seems to be ignored, probably because the new DVFS firmware knows better. Negative values appear ignored indeed.

Das hat also nichts mit Raspberry Pi zu tun, denn man hat das selbe Problem auch auf x86/x64 Linux und kodi.
Aber es ist nicht nur Kodi: die Videos von Amazon funktionieren in Chromium nicht mehr, selbst wenn "widevine" manuell unter Raspbian installiert wird.
