Re: Pi 3 Boots, Monitor Reports There's No Signal

Hi,
rather than using NOOBS, why not download and use the octopi image from here http://octoprint.org/download/ which apparently
already includes OctoPrint plus everything you need to run it
. I haven't tried, but will do as I plan on purchasing a 3D printer in the very near future....

Re: How to convert 3.7v battery to 5v?

Hi and welcome to the forum. A Pi3 in most cases will not require even 2A to run - it is dependant on applications running and most importantly, the additional hardware connected to the Pi when draws power from it, ie USB devices, modules connected to the GPIO port, camera board, display etc. You ma...

Re: need help enabling ssh

Ignoring the SSH aspect of the problem for a minute, are you able to ping the pi from your pc. In fact are you certain you know what the ip address of the pi is?

Re: Help with RC Receiver input

I've changed the title for something more meaningful. The channel output from the receiver will be a positive going pulse of length 1 - 2 mS. You need to measure the length of that pulse and react accordingly. You will also need to make sure the voltage level going into the Pi is of the correct leve...

Re: lcd display

Hi,
the xpt2046 chip you are referring too is only the touch controller, it does not control the screen.
You'll need to supply more info, perhaps a link to where you got the display from?

Re: Is the Raspberry Pi a good ePaper platform?

An epaper display coupled with a pi zero would be useful for a lot of projects where current requirement is relatively low and speed not essential.
For now I guess the cost is the limiting factor, not just the display itself, but the controller and what about drivers?
