Re: /dev/ttyUSB0 as a serial link

Hmmm... good news on the Psion side. Could it be the weather station device needs rigging up differently, perhaps for different flow control handling if you have checked baud, data, stop bits and parity? I would retry PL2303 but with different pinout cabling as this seemed to work for me (giving rts...

Re: /dev/ttyUSB0 as a serial link

I have a Chinese rip off (apparently) (bought off ebay for tuppence so what did I expect huh?) PL2303 (with a see through outer cable to the silver shielding) USB to 9 pin serial cable which I am using to try to rig up a DEC VT520 to my Pi for subsequent nefarious activities involving Colossal Caves...

Re: New Pi halts at USB devices

Did you patch your Debian image beyond the April default release?

It could be your sd card being too fast. If so, patching the debian OS may fix it.

Re: Cheap powered USB Hub (UK)

I also have just bought the Currys Logic 4 port powered hub which includes 2 amp 5v mains adapter and built in USB cable to hook up your Pi. Its nice, compact and works with my Pi, EZ USB to 2x PS2 port converter (which hooks up my PS2 kbd and PS2 mouse) and a Prolific PL2303 USB to serial converter...

Re: Pi with 16GB SanDisk Extreme Class 10 45MB/s WORKING

Thanks for your write-up. I have the 16GB Extreme 30MB/s and I couldn't get it to boot whatsoever, not even getting to hardware interrupt errors. I'm looking to buy a new card. Would you mind running a CrystalDiskMark benchmark with your SanDIsk 16GB 45MB/s card? I'm interested in seeing that card'...

Re: Pi with 16GB SanDisk Extreme Class 10 45MB/s WORKING

This will probably also work for SanDisk Extreme 30MB/s and who knows - maybe other class 10 cards also with the same symtoms of my two mentioned above.

Enjoy! :mrgreen:

Hi, After getting frustrated with my Class 4 4GB card (1m40s to boot), I purchased a SanDisk Extreme Class 10 45MB/s from play.com at a great price of £15 inc free delivery. I encountered 2 issues, namely: 1) when booting from Debian (April 2012 build) it was getting grumpy about mmc hardware interr...
