Re: Faulty power supply?

... I use noobs with latest Raspbian and XBMC installed on it. I guess the command would be the max_usb_current=1 on /boot/config.txt right? ... possibly not it will be the noobs boot partition you want to change personally I'd change all the fat partitions config.txt files that you can find does x...

Re: Faulty power supply?

Thanks mate.

My intention was to avoid having yet another piece of kit hanging around the TV (the USB hub). I will keep this set up for the moment, and probably ask for a replacement of the 2A power supply.

Not having voltage issues with the 1A one makes me wonder that it is definitely faulty.

You will need to open the SSH port (22) in your router. I would recommend to: 1) not use port 22 for SSH. Change it for another one. 2) Limit in iptables or hosts files the IPs allowed to SSH in. 2) Use SSH keys, so it makes it safer. 3) If can't manage to get SSH keys working, use a STRONG password...

I never been able to power entirely the USB hard drive (2....

Re: Pi stops working after unplug HDMI

oh! I didn't know this exists! I would buy one, but the issue is still annoying me :/ I’m fascinated by this. It seems like it’s almost an electrical issue, unplugging the hdmi lead is causing something to spike on the board which is causing a crash. That’s how it seems to me anyway. I’d like to fi...
