Re: mpd mpc - BBC radio internet streams stopped

BBC like to dynamically change their feeds...so i generated a script (with some interweb help) that updates them every time i start up the pi: bbcpls_class.zip There is a standalone script or a class if it helps...

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

This gets a bit more interesting! ts_calibrate and ts_test both work, but the python script still displays on my usual monitor (and if i mouse-click in the window the co-ordinates are printed), but nothing on the tft. At the start of the script it shows the correct event id (in this case event3, wh...

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

Hi Texy, thanks for the reply.

Yes you are correct, the callibration works, but not the test as you state.

Let me redo the image and try again, maybe i upgraded a module incorrectly somewhere...

Brilliant project though, going to have fun with this one.

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

Hi, thanks for the module. I can get the callibration app to run fine, but when i run the test app, it does not show on the tft (but does on the "normal" monitor. So i tried running X on the tft and that works as far as display goes, but does not respond to touch (again, the callibration did), any i...

Multiple edge-detects on GPIO

I have restored a 50's radio and shoved a Pi inside, and all is working well. I am using the original MW/Off/LW switch for selecting playlists with edge-detect interrupts. What I want to do though is read the "off" position so that it stops the player, but it seems edge detects can only be in one di...
