Controlling fans

Hello, I've got a guitar Tube amp that gets dangerously hot without fans on. I've installed two 80mm fans that are indeed keeping the amp at a good temperature, however, they're currently running off an old 500w PC power supply, and it's a bit of a waste to have that running just to power two fans. ...

Media server?

Hello, I'm currently using my pi as an xbmc media player, however, I was wondering if there was a particular application that would allow me to create a home media server. I'd prefer a way with minimal set up, but if I have no choice, that's fine. (something that can run within Raspbian, or even an ...

Transmission-Daemon: permission denied

I currently have one, dual purposed Pi. I have two 8GB SD cards, one with the latest version of Raspbian on it, the other, with the latest version of OpenELEC. I'm using Raspbian as a torrent box (GUI on at the moment, due to issues that are easier to fix with the GUI running) I'm downloading all to...

Raspberry Pi Hidden Camera

I went to the Maker Faire and picked up a Pi camera board, as well as a nice aluminium case for my Pi. I was thinking of creating a hidden camera using this, that could be stuffed in a pocket, and the camera sticks out through a button hole. I plan on powering it using a portable battery powered cel...

Transmission daemon glitch?

I've been using my pi as a bit torrent server and viewing the daemon as it downloads either directly on the display or on my android device, remotely. It was working, however after this last boot, it will not let me connect to it on my phone. What's going on?
