Re: Camera module problem with motion

Having this issue now, Sadly the Pi i decided to plug into is a 256. So memory seems to be an issue here too.


Looking forward to trying to get motion working.

Re: Brand new rPi + bad F3 polyfuse

if your poly return to less resistance you will most likely want todo something about it. On my rev1 Pi, I bridged both sides of the poly with small piece of wire :shock: . Surely NOT advised :lol: but I have been running that rpi every second since and had no issues (with a tested power supply). So...

swapped out the pi today with a model B.

Re: Dropping Pings

Looks like it could be related to power issues on the other Pi (known blown poly).
Finally a good test on the new setup.

Re: Dropping Pings

I figured I would bump this thread.

I am having ping drop issue about .2 - .4 % packet loss. Most recent Arch as of 2 days ago. Hardwired. Confirmed switch and network equipment is 200% percent. No tx/rx errors at either side, etc.

Anyone else experiencing issues?

Re: MAX31855 Thermocouple driver

I dont know why you can't go over 1000C, It really depends on the thermocouple. K types go into the 1000C range http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermocouple

Thanks BlueBill, I know there was something I was missing on that circuit, I was unsure of switching 24vac, only thing that really made me know it was safe was looking at what other thermostats were using.

Re: Thermostat314 - rPi/python powered Thermostat

Yeah, I considered the radio thermostat options, seems REALLY straight forward.

I am really interested in other temperature control applications, Like kilns. I figured this would be a fun start to get the brain flowing.

So what were trying to say here is, the pi is going to outlast you, and that's what everyone wants isn't it ? :lol:

Actually I tried all 3 transistors. I also have tried using two transistors as that seemed like a logical move when I saw I was seeing half the current draw then what was needed.... But it didn't do the trick and quickly made question my understanding.

One of which was a brand new 8GB class 10, Once I pass 900/2overvolt setting I get dramatically slower sc card speeds with a DD test. (read and write slower) I tested 2...
