Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current

I was fortunate to receive a prototype of the modified HAT to test. I've written up my analysis, test results etc. So if you're interested in learning more and seeing how the HAT has been modified, take a trip over to: https://www.martinrowan.co.uk/2018/11/raspberry-pi-poe-hat-official-modified-ver...

It looks like the search has been completely disabled. Which means, no menu to look for new posts. Which means (for me): forum not usable at the moment.

Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current

I saw one supplier announcing shipping (re-)starting yesterday.

Edit:
Correction ... the notification that Insaw was for a POE HAT starting to ship but it was not the one from RPT/RPF

Re: New TV Tuner from HQ

Did you mean you can, or can't get a good signal? Im planning on buying that one for flight tracking and getting a free business account with flightradar24 :)
I use that on a Pi Zero and submit results to Flightradar24 and it works very well.

Interesting

Introduces new HAT definition as well so that it can be called a HAT yet is form factor of Pi Zero.

Re: My Pi 3 hacked

However, if you do not have physical access to it then it will be much harder than usual to rewrite the SD card.
Is it a Pi that supports booting from the network instead of the SD card?

What is preventing your physical access?

Agreed - looks like you opened up your system to hacking scripts when you forwarded ports. If you have done nothing significant on your Raspbian installation then overwrite the SD card with a fresh copy of Raspbian, turn off your port forwarding and, as a minimum, follow the steps in the guide at ht...

Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current

Since a way to create and measure the problem appears to be repeatable ... does it happen on all of the POE cards?
If not, is there perhaps a difference between the capacitors used on individual boards?
e.g. a pick & place machine mistake on a batch/run?

Converting to integer and comparing will also remove any potential issue with leading zeroes being present or not - i.e. not only a potential case issue.

Re: RPI POE hat and 40 pin header access

We put the 'EEPROM' on 0x51 instead of 0x50 and modified the firmware to cope with that. So it is indeed stackable with other HATS. It only uses the ID pins, so any other HAT should be stackable with it without conflicting pin states. Good to see ... and perhaps should have been in the technical sp...

I do it with a Behringer UFO202 (around 25GBP) connected to RPi which in turn makes it available to other players.

I'm guessing this won't work on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ due to the new gigabit ethernet chip? I tried to compile and run it (with sudo), and all I get are segmentation faults.
See the posts before yours for a different solution for 3B+

Broadcom say that they have made fixes available to affected OEMs.
So need RPF to say if devices are affected and if/when fixes will come.
