Raspberry Pi 4 usb power button/switch works how?

I see some places selling power supplies for the Raspberry Pi 4 with a on/off button/switch. Sometimes with an LED. Example: CanaKit USB-C PiSwitch What is the button doing exactly? Does the Pi read the button status and shutdown? Are you supposed to watch the button in code and do something when it...

Re: Clone SD card on Windows but multiple devices appear

I wanted to clone my Raspberry Pi card on Windows. Found many easy instructions on how to do it with Win32 Disk Imager. Put card in Windows, Select device, read and save. Easy.

Re: Clone SD card on Windows but multiple devices appear

On Windows you need a program that can read Unix/Linux file system and the copy will as large or larger than the size of the sorce sd card. The first half of that is completely untrue. A program that makes an image of a card does NOT need to be able to read Unix/Linux file systems. It reads the raw...

Re: NOOBS 1.3 problem with booting OS on SanDisk 16GB Ultra

I made 3 noobs sd cards yesterday.

Only one had this problem. (all created on same pi for ease)

I reformatted again, placed Noobs again, then it was working.

Re: Make Pi work with BOTH TVs and computer monitors?

I'm assuming you've already tried auto-detect (i.e. having no display-settings in config.txt), and that didn't work? I just tried with a fresh Noobs 1.3 Raspbian install. On the TV it defaults to 1080p no problem. On the DVI monitor it defaults to 1600x1200. After a few moments the monitor itself d...

I have a project where the same Pi will be used on an HDMI TV and a DVI computer monitor. Not at the same time. When I connect the Pi to an HDMI 1080p TV with these config settings: hdmi_group=1 hdmi_mode=16 Everthing is fine. But if I bring the same Pi to a DVI 1080p monitor the resolution defaults...

Re: Disable NOOBS splash screen?

I do a regular install just to bypass that screen.

But I still was wondering if there was a way to disable the screen because I like NOOBS, just dislike the splash screen.

I like NOOBS because my SD cards fail so often it saves a bit of time when having to rebuild a card.

Re: Easy shutdown/restart using a toggle switch!!!?

Connected P6 to toggle switch. (using the P6 ground)
Connected GPIO with a shutdown script watching it.

Works perfect for me.

Easy shutdown and startup with a single toggle up/down momentary switch and 3 connections to Pi.
