Re: Raspbian Jessie?

I was talking about the official release on the download page so it is not just early adopters who are affected by this. From now on people who get the latest Jessie and put it on a machine with the 7" display will not have a problem. It will be the "right way up" to start with and they will never ...

Re: Raspbian Jessie?

I would disagree that it "works fine", it runs the screen upside down. I know the solution is trivial but it should have been included in the default settings as standard not left as another trap to put off NOOBs

If you want to control a CNC, have a look at Octoprint http://octoprint.org/ there is a Raspberry image already built.

Re: Official display and NOOBS

To answer my own question, you do need to hook up HDMI to see the install screen. An update to the instructions or NOOBS would be in order as I can see this causing problems to any truly new user.

Official display and NOOBS

Can you install NOOBS using the new display only or do I have to break out the HDMI cable?

BT Sport

BT are saying they will have an app for Android and IOS available from August 1st to watch their new sport channels. As they will not be supporting Sky multiroom, I think it would be ideal if we can get this to run on the RPi.

Does anyone know what we would need to do to get this going?

As far as I know it is the same the world over. Why run a company if not to maximise the shareholders returns?
