Re: Rasbery PI 2 Media Center

using my phone as a KODI remote (running yatse) i can tell kodi to play different audio tracks to 2 android devices running BubbleUpnp but I have not tried it with Video but in principle it should work. Im pretty sure that bubbleUpnp can be used to direct content from a server to dlna enabled device...

Re: Kodi Frrezzing during playback of streams

have you tried changing the buffer setting? advancedsettings.xml <advancedsettings> <network> <buffermode>1</buffermode> <cachemembuffersize>377286400</cachemembuffersize> <readbufferfactor>30</readbufferfactor> </network> </advancedsettings> should be found (or created in) home/osmc/.kodi/userdata

This thread has just brought back a lot of memories of trying to teach BBC Basic to "Builders 1" and "Brickies 2" day release students (Cf Tom Sharpes Wilt books) 35 years ago :D nobody could explain to me why ;) but thats what post grad researchers used to do !!!! to boost the stipend :D

Re: Looking for some advice about which arduino to choose

well that was quick - installed pip, and picocom and then asked pip to install ino - worked like a dream - fast command line build and upload - no more tightvnc :D I know the pi has a lovely graphics chip which is not being used but its low cost and I cant afford a monitor ( or the space) atm lol

Thanks for your detailed answer. I read about the problems with the sparkfun board but they seem to be on arduino versions 3 and above mine is 1.01 - I wonder is there a later version or the source that i can compile?

Thank you both for your detailed responses :) Its an awful long time since I've written any code that runs under interupts (remember the amstrad pcw :o ) so that may be a challenge - will read up a bit about that.

Looking for some advice about which arduino to choose

Hi I am looking to interface one of my Pi's to an arduino, hopefully they will communicate by usb(serial) but having looked at arduinos there seems to be a multitude of them if you include clones etc. I dont know very much about them and would like to keep it as cheap as possible, Currently the Pi h...

Re: I2C level shifter - Explain like I'm 5...

you dont need any sort of level shifter for the 1 wire interface - I have one of these (surplus to requirements used once before I realised I needed more than one bus so I went for the rpi3 from sheepwalk (8 buses)0 pm Ime if you want to save a few quid :-)

what version of OW are you using (currently trying to get 2.9p1 running) I can get owfs and owhttp running with a similar setup but struggling with owserver (I want to use perl to read)

I get the UU in device 0x68 when hwclock is working but

echo 0x68 > /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-1/delete_device
reverts it to 68 and allows i2c-tools to access it ......

Re: Pi telnetting into router to get stats

Thanks I had a look at 'EXPECT' but while looking at it I found a telnet module for perl and since I was going to use perl for the rest of it I thought I'd give that a go amd managed to make some progress. Just now need to get better at PERL :D :D
