Re: Issue with HDMI Adapter

I had the issue with HDMI adapter recently. Was a white one sold as compatible with Pi Zero.
My solution was to use a sharp craft knife to cut away a few mm of plastic on the adapter.
Obviously needs to be done carefully because of risk of cutting finger - but worked perfectly for me.

You might get some help on http://forums.slimdevices.com
An alternative and very simple approach would be to run LMS on your spare Raspberry Pi and tell the Boom to access that.

Re: Network request to TV works from any device but Raspberry Pi

Maybe the various quotation marks or other symbols are causing issues.
Try searching for other curl command line examples that people say work on Linux and have various quotation marks throughout.

Re: Who to contact about ordering boards with codecs unlocked?

Last one for MPEG2 expires in Feb 2018 according to
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of ... -2_patents
which, if correct, could mean that RPT can ship with it enabled from then on.

Re: Can't SSH to rasperry Pi with public ip address

Some acronyms and terms in this reply but you should be able to look them up for more detail. At home you are behind a NAT router. You would have to setup port forwarding on the router to direct your SSH traffic to your RPi. However, as soon as you do that you can also expect automated scripts that ...

Re: Can Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or Zero W be sold in Australia?

Should be listed in the RMC database at

but I don’t see it.
If RPT is not the importer then I would not expect to see RPT there - but the official importer should be there.

Re: Updating AIY

But take care if you have made modifications to the original code.
A mechanism for keeping end-user changes separate to the Google code so that it is less likely to break in an update has been worked on but not yet accepted into the official code.

piCorePlayer (pCP) included option to install LMS on RPi as well - works very well.

i.e. Using piCorePlayer turns your RPi into a Squeezebox and will work fine with your existing set-up including sync.

I've not tried Strech yet but I did read that networking interface names have changed (default at least).
So wlan0 possibly no longer correct until you made you edits.

Re: Is Pi3 vulnerable to broadpwn wifi security flaw?

The attack is based on buffer overflow in the firmware for the device.
The blackhat posting gives an example of a/the memcopy call that was subject to the overflow that could be exploited.
I think that someone from RPF, while jamesh is away, should be getting this checked.

The audio quality from the analogue socket has greatly wimproved over the years ... so if you have not tried it yet then you should give it a listen (assuming you are running relatively recent firmware / OS).
