Re: Blade Chassis

With the new compute module you could easily design a blade chassis to house as many rPi's as you needed.

Re: Transfer speed SAMBA/ethernet/router

Don't forget that the protocol overheads of samba will also slow down the transfer speeds as well.
Ideally for the Pi you will want to use a protocol with small overheads so as to get the fastest transfer speeds. I found FTP and NFS to be ok.

Re: UPiS - Uninterruptible Power intelligent Supply

Looks to be just what I need for a project I have in mind.
What sort of time frame do you have for these going on sale? and do you have any plans in the future to allow for increasing the battery backup? So that the Pi can run for longer when the mains is down?

Re: wireless AP with hostapd and realtek chipset (works)

I'm looking to use one of my pi's for a wifi access point by the TV. I'm in the process of building hostapd to support my wifi dongles RTL8188CUS chipset as set out above. However I want to keep my existing DHCP server and just pass the DHCP requests through the pi to the devices connected to it. Do...

Re: pacman -Syu - operation too slow

I've managed to mitigate the issue slightly, by manually using wget to download the repo db files and then over writing the existing entries. After running pacman -Sy it all seems to go ok and I can now install programs from these repos without it erroring.

Re: pacman -Syu - operation too slow

It is odd. I've tried a number of times through the day and I've also tried different servers. It seems my pi just does not like those repos. And it is only those listed in the 1st post that it has an issue with.

Re: Cyntech case - quick review

So far I can say this is the best case for the Pi available at the moment. I've the raspberry one and a green modmypi case and the modmypi case is so bad in comparison. I'm looking to replace it with the blueberry case in Jan. Also Cyntech's customer services are excellent, I was expecting case feet...

Re: Wow! First production enclosure just arrived

I'd just like to say I bought one of these case last week and it is a really well built case. Cyntech are great to deal with I asked about feet for the case and was sent some a few days later.

The case is way better than my ModMyPi one.

Re: 'Nokia 3310' type LCD add on board

Texy, are you able to access the unused GPIO pins with this at all? And which pins are used for the screen?
Considering a screen for IP info on my dev Pi.

Re: Berryboot v1.1 - Boot menu / OS installer

Any chance CEC support can be added for the installer/boot menu at all? Would make it simpler when booting on a TV to launch openelec/other xbmc distro?

Re: Preparation for additional codecs???

In light of the recent codec licenses for mpeg 2 and vc-1 I was wondering when we can expect the licences for dts and ac3?

These are the ones I'm really interested in.
