Re: HDMI working different on all RPi3 models

- Have you verified that your system boots correctly when connected to a normal screen ? - And there is never anything showing ? No rainbow square, no splash screen, no console during boot ? - Is the Pi networked so that you can log in via SSH and run commands ? I think is is simplest if you install...

Re: Remote Desktop of RPI using internet of my GSM

You have this guide:
https://docs.dataplicity.com/docs/make- ... or-your-pi

It is a bit complicated, and outdated. You should maybe skip the part about tightvncserver and use the RealVNC server that should be already installed on a full Raspbian installation.

Or is it too many pixels to process? Like you said, it all depends on what processing you want to do and how quickly you want the response.

Re: Root Password Rejected

Just a clarification..
When you use sudo you do not enter the "root" users password, you enter the "pi" users password.
The root user should not have a password, its a security thing.

Re: Need clarification on GCC/OpenCV/Raspbian

The compiler/assembler should be able to create machinecode for NEON even if itself is compiled to run on non-NEON devices.
So it is more likely something to do with the compiler flags used when compiling OpenCV.

I dont think https://jasperproject.github.io/ uses any cloud services for the speech recognition.

What is it that you consider an "issue" ? I guess this script is ran in some specific way to go into the history like that.
