Re: Connecting External 2.5" HDD to Raspberry Pi

Hi All, I'm trying to connect a external 2.5" HDD to my raspberry Pi but it failed to detect the drive. I suspect this could be a power supply issue. So next i want to try connect my HDD drive to a external power supply, using another 5V 1A charger. Here is the USB cable i have on hand. The 2nd USB...

Re: Connecting External 2.5" HDD to Raspberry Pi

Personally I'd take a good powered USB HUB and power the HD keyboard and RPi from that - one plug , one love ;) Yeah. I prefer that too. Currently limited on budget and since i got another power supply available, so i thought i could power my HDD using the spare power supply. I will try it later wh...

Re: Minimun Power Required to Run Turbo Mode without Any Iss

probably not the internals all run at 3.3V and less .. 5.0 is mainly for the USB but the VR may not work properly enough if less than 5.75 YMMV some RPI's may just not overclock In that case i think i have to try each option and see which one my Pi can handle best. However how to check whether my P...

Re: Minimun Power Required to Run Turbo Mode without Any Iss

Basically you want to have as close to 5V across the test points, when running, as possible. The Pi will run with less volts, but you will lose stability on the Network and USB (and maybe HDMI - I think that uses 5V for something). Some Raspis will just not handle Turbo overclocking. If it doesn't ...

Hi All, I'm David, 29 from Malaysia. I've been working as an electronic / semicon engineer since i graduated. I found out about Raspberry Pi through a computer magazine, initial thought on this little computer is, it works perfectly as a small media center in my house. So i bought it without second ...

Minimun Power Required to Run Turbo Mode without Any Issue

Hi All, I've own a Pi for almost a month now and I'm happy with its performance so far. Now i would like to try to boost the Pi performance through overclocking in raspi-config. The thing is i tried Turbo mode before and it corrupted my SD card in next boot. Did a little investigation and i find out...

Re: Minimum Power Requirement to Run XBMC

I manage to tune up the voltage across TP1 and TP2 by using shorter micro usb cable. Now my voltage across TP1 and TP2 is 4.81V and the initial video stuttering and distorted audio problem is gone! :D

Re: Minimum Power Requirement to Run XBMC

I've installed latest raspbian and firmware through NOOBS 1.3.8, finally i reinstall the XBMC. I tried to play some videos through UPnP and it can play nicely! However i observed at the beginning of video playback, there are a short period of time (~30s) where video stuttered and audio slight distor...

Re: Minimum Power Requirement to Run XBMC

The primary suspect now is the power supply, i measured TP1 and TP2 under shutdown mode and i get 5.02-5.03V. When i boot up my Pi with LAN on (Command line mode with XBMC off) the voltage dropped to 4.87V. I haven't tried to measure the voltage when everything is turn on, (my TV is occupied by my ...

Minimum Power Requirement to Run XBMC

Hi All, I encountered some issues when running XBMC on Raspbian. I've successfully install XBMC and boot it up nicely, GUI looks smooth. The problem is when i try to play video (mkv 720p or mp4) through UPnP or play video directly from SD card, the video stuttered and playback was not smooth. Howeve...
