Media Center enclosure with RaspBerryPi?

Does anyone know where you could get a large case for the raspberry pi? I need one where it can fit hard drives and maybe include usb and microusb ports on the case itself. Anyone know of a solution?

That's what I needed. Now another question, if I log out, how do I stop the script?

actually I want something I could write to rc.local to start on boot.

Automate timelapse

Is there a way to run a bash script without having a user logged in via the raspi itself or through ssh? I wrote a bash script to take images every few seconds, and run it via ssh, but as soon as I close my putty window, the script stops. I want to be able have a battery pack and take the raspi to v...

Re: Motion - Ip Camera Possible

Are we opposed to using external hardware sensors? Because why wouldn't you guys just wire a motion detector

and wire it up via gpio and write a bash script to toggle the camera on/off with the motion detector?

Accessing Camera via python

Is there a way to access the camera using python? I want to mess around with some SimpleCV functions, but as this isn't a UVC camera, I'm not quite sure how to actually use this camera board.

Re: Why is the beagleboard so much faster than RPi

Different family of ARM CPU. MHz is all but meaningless for comparision between non-identical CPUs these days. It's not a big surprise that the more expensive board is faster, which leaves you with a simple choice. (Price vs speed). So do you know what the major differences are in the 2 CPUs that m...

Why is the beagleboard so much faster than RPi

So I'm playing around with the simplecv framework and trying to run it on a rapsberry pi. But the problem is, that it only can process a single frame in 15 seconds. I used the same code on a beagleboard and it ran literally 10 times faster. What am I not utilizing on the RPi that's making the progra...

RC timing circuit for resistive sensor

I need to build a RC circuit to read 'analog' values from a resistive sensor. I saw and implemented this code from adafruit import RPi.GPIO as GPIO, time, os DEBUG = 1 GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) def RCtime (RCpin): reading = 0 GPIO.setup(RCpin, GPIO.OUT) GPIO.output(RCpin, GPIO.LOW) time.sleep(0.1) GPIO...

Webcam

anyone suggest a good webcam to work on the raspberry pi? The one that I currently have produces very blurry images and doesn't really work well with my computer vision project. I can't really wait for the camera module anymore (thought I would get it in Oct or early this year at the latest) and I h...
