Dear Sir or Madam, Could you please let me know if a monitor without an HDMI port can be used with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, as a display? What monitor did you have in mind, and what inputs does it support? There is only the Official 7" Touch Screen: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-p...

Re: Minecraft server locally fast, but publicly slow

WiFi worked fine on my Creeper Pie SMP server when I was testing it. What version of Minecraft, and which server software (mine is Java 1.12.2 and SpigotMC )? Multiple routers can result in NAT3, which can affect gaming performance. I also don't understand how your "all in one" modem + router could ...

Re: Reasoning behind dual Micro HDMI, and potential future alternatives?

... I have not seen this micro connector in the wild. It's not uncommon on Ultrabooks and tablets. I have some micro HDMI cables from a previous Ultrabook (Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro), so it won't be a problem for me... assuming I can find them (we've moved since then). In fact I bought an Asus UX31 laptop ...

Re: Raspi 4 - USB power out and USB drives

Has the current output of the Raspi 4 increased over previous models? To answer your original question, no, from what I've read the shared USB power output is the same 1.2A as the Pi 3B(+). However, as others have said, that should be enough to run a portable HDD, unless you have something else con...

Re: Noobs and Resbian saying low power but power supply is fine

Well, in that case you have a problem. Either your power supply or your Pi is bad. Qualcomm Quick Charge has nothing to do with 5V regulation. The charger still could have too much voltage fluctuation under load, or as the poster above said, it could be the micro USB cable in between the charger and...

Re: RPi4 - MicroSD card speed classes supported?

... With a SSD reading at 500 MB/s - and connected to a Raspberry Pi via USB 3.0 - the 25 MB paged out, followed by a 25 MB paged in - it takes 0.1 second , which is acceptable. That might be acceptable, if it were true... USB is provided via an external VLI controller, connected over a single PCI ...

Re: raspbian wheeze

If your original Pi model B is the first revision, then there are some differences in the GPIO expansion header (besides the obvious addition of 14 extra pins). If it's the second revision, then it aligns with the first 26 pins on the new header. For example, if you are using GPIO21 (pin #13) on the...

Re: RPi4 support to boot from USB

Yes, as has been started multiple times in similar questions posted in the last day or so, USB boot is being worked on and will be enabled in a future firmware update (no time frame available at this time).

Unlike previous models, the Pi4 has on-board upgradable firmware.

Re: I can´t boot from usb in pi 4

You could probably do it the old school way with /boot on the SD card and / (rootfs) on the USB drive.

I wonder if the bootcode.bin only method will work? (EDIT: Ninja'd by thagrol)

I'll be testing this and other stuff when my back-ordered Pi4 computers arrive.

Don't waste money on an A2 card. Unless the device is A2 certified it will be slower than an A1 card. I and several others have already learned that lesson the hard way.

Re: can RPI-Zero work as RNDIS gadget while same time accepting USB mouse

No. The hub prohibits USB Gadget mode (that's why you can't do it with the multi USB port models like the 2B and 3B, they have a built-in hub).

Why would you need a mouse with a Pi0 USB gadget?

Short answer, you can't. The Pi4 uses a new version of Raspbian (Buster) and upgrading from one version to the next (Stretch to Buster) is not recommended. Longer answer, you shouldn't. If you look online you'll find ways to upgrade an older version to a newer one, but that's not recommended because...

USB 3.0 makes perfect sense. Slow I/O was a major limitation of the older models. Dual 4K micro HDMI was surprising. I expect people utilising that will be a very small minority. Most would be happier with a single standard size HDMI, and if they really wanted to support dual screens they could have...
