Re: Getting Windows 10 on SD Card

Please see the forum rules about Windows 10 Core IoT discussions.

I am certain that both Ma and Linux are fine platforms.

We are not talking about that here.
Thank you

Re: Cannot start hosted network

I am not sure the internal routing layer that this requires is in IoT. I doubt it was high on the 'use case' list.

Try asking on the MS IOT site or on GitHub if you can find an appropriate repository.

Re: IR Communication with RP2

The problems with GPIO is latency. The time it takes for a hardware interrupt to be passed on to the higher layers. This causes a large amount of jitter, even if you use the best sampling methodology. The same is true for Linux as well (not real time Linux which has a different strategy for interrup...

Re: IR Communication with RP2

Yes I understand that the physical methods vary from type to type. The question still remains, how are you planning to connect a wire from the Pi to however your have that signal decoded to? What is the physical transport mechanism from the Pi to the 'air'?

Not how they talk to the TV or whatever, how you talk to them from the computer. What would you normally expect to hook them up to, and what protocol are you expecting to carry over that hardware route?

Re: IR Communication with RP2

Well as most of the protocols for this sort of service usually turns out to Serial rx/tx over some hardware route. The question then becomes, how best can I do that?

If the protocol is more complex than that, then trying to work out is the best is a set of balances.

Re: HDMI Output No Signal

Well all I can observe is that dumb LCD panels do not seem to do this. I know I have one on my Pi. On the HDMI. 10240 - 10586

Local non HDMI will also not work unless you get the screen and Pi powered up together at the start. The RPF GPU code does not recognise it if started later.

Yep. It looks like the hardware update has broken the MS driver to GPU that was working previously. Let's hope the patch requirement to Linux was passed on to MS as well and then this should be solved quickly

Well that error seems to say that the command you are trying to run isn't in 10IoT PS.

Try listing the commands from Power Shell to see what is and isn't supported. It's in the FAQ I host somewhere.
