Re: ip address

I agree to a point Bosse_B. I've never had dhcp give out an ip that was already active on the network but it may well be that I've just been lucky all my life. But to be on the safe side, as you say, choose an address in the same subnet that is outside the pool used by dhcpd and that you are sure is...

moar screen than reality

So I have this movie, real letterbox aspect ratio. Left to its own devices, it plays at 1920x800. Now thinks me, if I hang the edges over the edge of the screen a bit, I can get to the point where it is 1080 high and looks better on the TV. So I did a bit of calculating and decided how much needed t...

No repaint.

In Raspbian. I use omxplayer and have done for a while. Just recently, in the last week, I ran apt-get upgrade and now when omxplayer finishes, the screen no longer gets repainted. Moving the mouse around, uncovers the original window contents, as does minimising and then restoring the window. Is th...

Re: FTP server-twoftpd

I use winscp (http://winscp.net) from my windows pc to copy files back and forth from the pi.
Other than being a bit slow in transferring big files, it works every time and doesn't need anything installing on the pi.

clunk on audio

Is there any way to stop the huge clunk which almost blows the cones out of the speaker when something starts to play a sound?

It's the same on both of my pi(s), so I guess it must be the same for everyone.

I'm using the 3.5mm jack, as my monitor doesn't have sound.

Re: Charging devices from Raspberry Pi

Not really, no.
Unless you use a powered hub and charge from that.
The Pi USB port can't supply much power at all, and plugging in a device that draws too much power just crashes it in my experience.

Thanks for that, I'm now back in GMT.
Seems odd that users have to change DST manually though.
