Re: Raspberry Pi Home Server

Thanks for your work so far, I am trying out Moebius as a base for a torrent server, so far I am impressed with Moebius.

I am looking forward to the torrent installation. I have so far tried Transmission, which is ok for downloading but will not seed back. And Deluge crashes my Pi.

Re: XMBC carputer buttons

Point taken on WiFi. If this was my set up, I would be looking for a solution that would not involve my phone. Let's say the OP is driving along the road in his truck listening to some music on his Pi when his phone rings, he is going to want to pause the music before answering the phone, hands free...

Re: XMBC carputer buttons

Any OS will do, but I would just use raspbmc +wifi + iphone/android app + not write a line of code. If you really want buttons you could use usb or gpio but you will need to learn to program first. I don't think the WiFi is an option as the set up is in a truck!!. Perhaps a remote control may be an...

Re: LVDS Boards for laptop Screen

Possible workaround:- Use a very thin PCB with the correct track pitch. The connector is usually about 1mm inside and should happily accept a small board, as long as you don't force it. If too thick carefully sand down until it fits. This idea was contributed by Phil P. Hope this helps, -A I really...

Re: LVDS Boards for laptop Screen

Thanks for the offer, I may just take you up on that. The main problem I have is the G5 TDMS cable has a different package to mount it to the Logic board, it has all it's wires soldered to a connector, the G4 mod in the link I posted earlier use's a small connector for each wire, sounds like it is a...

I have tried all three, but I will not be using XBian in the future due the issues that Sam is claiming, if these allegations are true and XBian have "borrowed" Sam's installer then they should do the honourable thing and publicly announce this, along with an apology to Sam. For the moment I have se...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

I have just checked RS for availability and they are claiming 19 weeks for dispatch, which seems quite a along time, near enough 5 months.

Re: RS cases - cheapest?

Ahh, but if you order another Pi (you can't have too much Pi :lol: ) and 2 cases then all you will pay is £4.95 shipping for the lot, then you can have your Pi and eat it :!:

I do agree that RS's shipping is a little steep for 1 case.

Re: Chromium browser build failure

Slightly off topic but I feel it is relevant. Has anyone had a go at porting Opera mini for the Pi?, it runs on most cell/mobile phones that no doubt have ARM architecture. This is all beyond my capabilities, I am a bit of a noob on the porting or programming front, just a simple Pi user. Andy. BTW ...

Re: Raspbmc Release Candidate

This is great, the only issue I have had so far is that it hangs slightly when selecting items from the menu's, it also play's some of my AVI's, not sure if it play's them all, not had time to test them all.

Re: Windows apps for Pi

Yes I know Windows will not run on the Pi, but this may well run on the Pi with some work as I believe that there is an ARM port of ReactOS.

BTW not sure if this is the right place to post this.

Re: Smart TVs on the Cheap

I believe that the team over at XBMC are trying to port XBMC so it will run on the Raspi.

If they achieve the port then you should be able use an iOS or Android device as a remote control.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello all.

I'm Andy form the North East of England.

Been following this project for a few weeks now, I am trying to get my local school to have a look at the Rasp PI.

I can't wait to get my hands on one, I love tinkering around with Linux.

Cheers
