Re: Pi Battery Trouble

I solved the small current issue by moving to a better terminal block and tightening it down better, II am now getting 1.5A. I am going to power a screen with this . The description says it needs a 12v 4a input, so I have been looking for a Ubec that is 12v and at least 4a. I found ones that can han...

Re: Pi Battery Trouble

And I measured the temperature of the regulator 10 seconds after I started it, and the temperature of it was 207° F (97.2° C). If I would have left it I might have been able to make a cup of tea on it! :D

Pi Battery Trouble

So I followed these directions and have made a battery. Unfortunately, now is where I run into the problem. The battery is discharging at 16v, but only .35A! After my 5v linear regulator, it is 5v and still .35A of course. So, what I am wondering, is how could I harvest that wasted energy. If it mat...

Re: HDMI->LVDS converter

I would like to buy one (if available) If not, could someone lead me in the right direction to purchase parts to make one from godfather's schematics?
I'm going to use it for a 14.1" XGA (1024 x 768) TFT LCD, from a old Dell Latitude C540/C640

Thank you for the help!!!!

Re: Build a laptop reusing a dead one.

I was thinking about this also, and even though this seems like a old/dead thread, has anyone had any progress?

Re: Trouble when trying to boot

YES!
Just got OpenElec To work
I used the most recent version (From http://www.kvarley.co.uk/raspberrypi/openelec/ ) and it worked, first try.

Still haven't gotten anything past the code part for the other images though.

Re: Trouble when trying to boot

I checked using the sha1 hashes, and they matched.
It doesn't go far enough to use the command line or to use the startx command.

I've tried with both squeeze and raspbmc, and they give the same code. But with raspbmc it sometimes freezes before it can get there.

Thank you for responding!!!!

Re: Wishes for 2nd gen Raspberry Pi

<t>I think that to satisfy all of you people wishing for more RAM, there should be a Ready-boost type feature built into the distros that would be shipped with this amazing thing.<br/> <br/> Ready-boost is a feature in Windows 7 that basically lets you use a Flash Drive's memory as more RAM for the ...
