Re: Easy access to your Pi from Windows using MobaXterm

Great tutorial and a nice feature with RDP. What I actually would like to do is to remote control the console itself, ie. have the output via HDMI to my TV. I have tried with RDP, X-tunneling and VNC without any luck, they all transfer the output to my PC.
Any ideas?

Re: Using RCA jack for audio

Since there is not phono jacks on the Pi, I'm pretty sure astrodog meant the other end of the cable, when he said red and white jack ;)

Re: Using RCA jack for audio

Last thing: To avoid having to start the sound driver after boot, make an entry in /etc/modules, like this;

sudo su
echo snd_bcm2835>>>>/etc/modules
exit

And to check the change:
cat /etc/modules

Re: Using RCA jack for audio

Just remembered, you must first load the sound driver:
sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835

Re: Using RCA jack for audio

You could try this: sudo amixer cget numid=1 sudo amixer cget numid=2 sudo amixer cget numid=3 sudo amixer cget numid=4 I'm not sure what it will give you, but in my case numid=3 returns: numid=3,iface=MIXER,name='PCM Playback Route' ; type=INTEGER,access=rw------,values=1,min=0,max=2,step=0 : value...

Re: Using RCA jack for audio

You need to tell pi where to send sound:

sudo amixer cset numid=3 <output>

0=auto
1=headphones
2=hdmi

In your case, run this command:
sudo amixer cset numid=3 1
