Re: What are your OVERCLOCKING settings when using XBMC??

I'm running forced overclocking (not dynamic/Turbo/whatever it's called)

arm_freq=950
core_freq=450
sdram_freq=500

No overvolt.

Re: Connecting a fan to the gpio connectors

I use a USB-to-3Pin adapter, like the one shown below

That particular one is listed on FrozenCPU.

I plugged the cable into one of the USB 3.0 Ports on my MondoHub and it works fine to power a 50mm fan.

If you're staying within the constraints of the SOC and open source stuff. Yes its exactly like 'PC' debian at the command line. Its a slow processor and the USB implementation leaves a bit to be desired, but it is Debian and almost everything works as Debian. If you're a BASH junkie, you'll be rig...

Re: SD card compatibility list

2 - San Disk 4GB Class 10 works fine too.

Re: Which SD card technology to use?

I don't believe SDXC will work in the PI even some Class 10 SDHC cards have been known to cause compatibility problems. So basically you have the choice of SD (2GB card or less capacity) or SDHC (4GB card or more capacity). All memory card readers can handle SD however some depending on how old it ...

SD or SDHC in the card reader on the Pi itself. I have used 32GB, 16GB, 8GB, 4GB and 2GB SD & SDHC cards in mine without problems. You can use any of the three technologies with your powered USB hub. I use a 128GB SDXC Lexar card in a USB Adapter, 64GB San Disk in a Card Reader, and (2) 32GB Micro S...

So what's the latest on the creation of an interface for connecting an LCD via the DSI connection?

I've seen a few posts mentioning that it was not going to be anytime soon, and others stating it was being worked on and something should be available shortly.

Re: Power supplies? USB hubs?

The vast majority of users use a power supply rated for 5v 1A. That's not to say a 5v 700ma won't work, but having 1A available is better than having only 700ma If running from a Powered USB Hub, I recommend using one which has power switches for each individual port. This allows you to power off/on...

If they are too slow in refunding your money, you can try contacting your credit card company and initiating a chargeback. It would seem ample time has passed to process a refund, imho.
