Re: Raspberry Pi 4 no input, black screen

Quick update to this that might help someone. I'm lucky enough that in my house I have a few different screens/monitors, so after verifying that the Raspbian Buster image I was writing was ok (sha256 hash check) and the green flashing light was doing what it should (with no card solid on for a coupl...

Re: RPI2 freeze on boot

Hi guys, I'm also seeing this on a rpi2 running raspbian (2015-02-16-raspbian-wheezy). Potentially a little more info though, it booted fine the first time around, went through config (overclocking to a rpi2 level made it definitely faster booting), startx'ed up through to the full GUI. I used the w...

Re: ALSA lib pcm.c:7339:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

Apologies for raising this from the dead again, but did anyone get somewhere with this?

I've a pygame python script that will run untouched for approx 6 hours, then bail out with the underrun error, the script is for an raspi driven alarm clock so would be amazing to get this properly sorted.

Ooooh that IS interesting! Mostly because you got it to NOT throw the error. I'm investigating the same error, but from a entirely different perspective. I'm trying to create a Raspi Python driven (using the PyGame library) alarm clock for my boy and although my little python script does throw this,...

Well, that's a kernel panic issue.
Simplest solution would be to download the rom again, this time use a MD5 hash checker to make sure it downloaded correctly, then apply the rom.

Re: Retropie and PS3 issues.

Blimey! that one caught me off guard. Potentially, yes.. I think.

The biggest issue will be getting it alongside the 7" screen, if you're thinking of not having a screen in there and connecting that separately it will be fine.

Re: help! ps3 controller recognized but not syncing?

Hmn, odd. I found pretty much the same thing, I swapped out the bluetooth adapter for a Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR) bluetooth dongle, that now connects my Sony controllers perfectly, but my fake bluetooth controllers (that work on the PS3 itself) don't work.

Well (and I'm just guessing here) that command includes the switch 'night' which suggests to me that the feed monitor is optimised for low light levels, so when the light levels raise above the threshold it's outside the range and dropping the stream. What I'd do is look at that switch to see what t...
