Re: Ethernet connection issue

Same issue for me. What is interesting is that on the very first couple of boots it did grab an ip address from the DHCP server and I saw the LAN LEDs light up. However it simply stopped working and despite trying fresh images, different SD cards, cables, switches etc etc I only now see the LAN LED...

Re: Weather Station now running

Well done Kevin. You have saved a lot of work for those us planning to do something similar. I have a Clas Ohlson imported WH1080 (with the radio clock) which operates at 866MHz. It's running very happily on the pi with pywws. I'm yet to start experimenting with a receiver but I'm planning to do so ...

Re: Weather Station now running

Did you experiment with this any further, e.g. the xrf unit? I'd like to isolate my Weatherstation from the head unit, and this seems to be the perfect solution.... all my connection issues seem to stem from the usb connection between the pi and the head unit. Can the XRF just "listen" to any 433/4...

Re: Weather Station

<t>For my weather station (well actually it's a 5 zone greenhouse control system plus weather station) I have decided to run a solar powered PIC as the sensor controller and to send the data back wirelessly using an RF transceiver to the house. I intend to add a transceiver to the rpi which will ser...

Re: Control systems and telemetry

<r>Thanks for the suggestions Ian. I did wonder about wifi and directional antennae.   That's certainly an option for the for the static parts of the project but I was thinking it might work out more expensive. I was looking for a really low cost alternative. Likewise the xbee looks interesting but ...

Re: Control systems and telemetry

<t>Like so many others I grew up programming the ZX Spectrum and in latter years have taken to php/mysql programming and have dabbled a bit with PIC programming. Was very excited to hear of raspberry pi. I'm listing here my intentions in case others are interested in collaboration...<br/> <br/> 1) G...
