Re: Raspberry Pi 4 B stopped & died suddenly

Good to know the Pi isn't DOA. It was only the Raspberry Pi AC ADAPTOR P2219 MODEL: KSA-15E-051300HK (USB-C, MADE IN CAMBODIA) that broke after about 1.5 h updating and surfing and no load except official mouse and keyboard. That's a bit disappointing. Was the adapter part of the kit? Yes, it's fro...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 B stopped & died suddenly

Unfortunately I don't have another USB-C AC adapter/power supply - especially not one that could work with Pi4B. I also don't have a micro USB to USB-C adapter. I could buy, but they are a bit expensive in my town.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

Is OpenMax still supported? Will omxplayer continue to work (except for the missing HW codecs)? I'm using it a lot of projects. OMXplayer will work for H264, that stuff is unchanged, but the MP2 and VC1 codecs no longer exist on the Pi4, and OMXplayer won't use the software decoders. We are still w...

I looked at the history of BalenaEtcher and there was a bug fix concerning gzip in the latest version, so directly burning img.gz files did perhaps not work well in earlier versions.

However, we see no reason why it should not work You have a USB hub chip that speaks PS/2 ??? we are USB compliant. The nature of passive adapters is that they do not convert anything.

I did fix this bug with USB in systemd manually in the file in Lubuntu 18.04 x86, but there are still problems after a while with "socket connect failed" with pigs, and "connect: Network is unreachable" with ping6. The solution to disconnect and reconnect the Pi Zero works, but it's uncomfortable.

Re: Raspberry Pi Desktop on Lubuntu for x86?

I think it should not be more difficult to install than to add one repository, update, install one package that pulls in the rest, and reboot. I installed Tvheadend in Lubuntu in this way.

Is there a special repository for Raspberry Pi Desktop or is this included in the standard Debian distribution?

Re: Power antenna to TV HAT through antenna cable

I now use the old DVB-T box to power the antenna in stead of the 6 V power supply. I connected the antenna to it on RF-in and the TV HAT to RF-out. This works even if the box is in standby, but if I pull the plug to the box the signal from the antenna disappears, as expected.
