Re: Is my cell phone charger good enough to supply power to my raspberry pi

I see messages like this so often! Do you think we need a specific sticky 'phone chargers do not work'. Not only will the voltage sag as load increases, but I fear won't some be regulated and will give over-voltage at times, with damaging consequences. Phil That just isn't the case. I currently hav...

Re: Casting audio to Google Home Mini - is this possible?

Hi guys, I'm a total noob here to the world of Raspberry Pi and am thinking on starting on a small project. I would like my Raspberry Pi to instruct Google Home to stream a live radio station (url which the Pi fetches) at specific times of the day. However, I'm unsure whether this is possible and w...

Re: Connecting to 2 networls, one ethernet and 1 wifi

By default sshd should listen on all interfaces, connecting from either side should be possible. Are the networks on each interface are actually different, e.g. 192.168.0.0/24 for eth0 and 10.10.10.0/24 for wlan0? If the same network is defined on both interfaces, Linux routing gets confused.

Re: Executing a command over SSH via Webhooks

Bringing this back up. I have spent days mucking about with this and have come to the conclusion there is something about LibreELEC that is preventing this from working, I just can't for the life of me find out what it is. I tried it on my Ubuntu 16.04 media server and it works perfectly. I also tri...

Executing a command over SSH via Webhooks

Ok, let me give you some background. I have 4 Raspberry PIs all running Kodi on LibreELEC 8.2.5 (1 x RPI 3B+, 2 x RPI 2, 1 x RPIB). They are connected to an Acer Revo R3600 acting as a Media Server, running Xubuntu 16.04.5. The media is housed on ext USB drives and shared using NFS. The Acer also ma...

Re: Media Server and Torrent Downloader

What OS are you using on your PC? Here is what I have done. I have a Raspberry Pi running Kodi on LibreElec in each room of my house. Three of them are Model Bs and one is a 2 Model B. They are all connected to my network via an ethernet cable. A couple of years ago I got an Acer Revo R3610 on eBay ...

What you are looking for is a Television. Be warned that those on board USB sockets don't offer much current, all my TVs have them and they haven't got the guts to power my PIs.

Get a mouse/keyboard combo with a single dongle, less to power. I have various handheld ones and they are great for Kodi, but I'd hate to have to do any serious typng on one.

Re: ApplePi: A Raspberry Pi Hackintosh

You could make Raspbian look a bit like OSX, but that would be it. There is no ARM release of OSX.
