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?

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 kills NETGEAR router

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+

Re: Bluetooth flaw - is Pi vulnerable?

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.

Re: Get smart TV feed

Does the TV have output available to a video recorder? If yes ... does it allow the "smart" content to be recorded? Alternative approach ... are the video sources that you want available via a Kodi add-on? If yes - then you could use Kodi on RPi to provide your "smart" viewing and then run Hyperion ...

If not already done .... use you RPi3 to update the software on the SD card then try it in the RPi3B+

Re: Is it possible to read 10 tons digital weight scale sensor with raspberry pi ?

My reading is that "this 10 tons wight scale" means that they already have the weighing machine in use and now want to try to read it via a different mechanism (probably in addition to the existing way). If that is the case then would need to know the details of how it makes data available - or at l...
