Pulling the Power Cord

Hello fellow Pi fans. I was wondering, has anyone actually damaged a Raspberry Pi by pulling the power? I'm putting in a unit as a video display, and it's going to be mounted without a keyboard or mouse. It's going to run 24/7, and I'm wondering, if it crashes or locks up, is pulling the power going...

Re: Run video on startup, can't stop it

Thanks for the replies guys. The unit is being used completely off line at the moment, although I am considering the benefits of getting it onto the network for future updates...so tapping in and killing it that way might be a good idea. The only issue is we're on a wireless network that requires lo...

Run video on startup, can't stop it

Hi there. I'm just trying to figure out how to run this command and then be able to exit; "/usr/bin/omxplayer --loop /home/pi/Desktop/exhibit.mkv" on startup. I'm just trying to play the video "exhibit.mkv" on a loop via omxplayer as an exhibit. The issue is, once it's loaded up, I cannot stop the v...

Re: Any reason to turn off the pi?

Thanks for the reply guys. I think what I'm going to do is create a semi-permanent spot for mine in home theatre system and leave it on. Based on the replies here, it's the way to go as messing with power connections all the time is pretty problematic, and it's dirt cheap to run!

Thanks again.

Any reason to turn off the pi?

Hi there.

So, i'm rocking a raspberry pi 3 as a retropie, and I'm wondering if there is any real reason to turn the thing off? Powering it down and then unplugging it every time is pretty difficult if I want to tuck away the cables..
Just wondering what everyone else does.

Re: No wireless interfaces found - Rasspberry PI 2 Model B

this is devilishly similar to the issue I'm having as well. If you find an issue, can you let me know? Oddly, I can see my networks if I right click the Wifi button and attempt to configure via SSID (this is from memory, it might say something different), but I have no idea how to configure the 4 bo...

Premiertek Nano Wireless issues

Hi there, I've been scouring forums (including this one) for answers but I've come up short. I'm having issues getting this device to work with the Pi Zero. it's worked before with no issues with all the same hardware I'm using now, and I'm not sure how I made that happen, but it's not working now. ...
