Re: Power a chassie fan

well, you can feed them from 5V (that is usb voltage), however they will not work at full speed (they need 12 volts)
you will need to re-solder the fan's wires to usb or gpio

Re: Does anyone have this cheapo DVB-T/Analog tuner from Eba

As far as I know DVB-T uses MPEG2 which the Pi can't decode. A solution like that can be used to stream the output over the network from the Pi but you'll need another computer to watch TV. This one can be had locally for €27 and is listed on the page mentioned earlier: http://www.terratec.net/en/p...

yes, it might be there but since i do not know anything about its chipset Linux shell command lsusb might identify the chipset. If you post the output here a reader might decode it for you. yeah that would be easy given i have the tuner, but i do not have it yet, as i don't know if it would be supp...
