Suitable replacement for the Rpi?

I am currently using a Rpi 3 with a Qt application as a HMI. The application runs fine to a certain point and it can do about everything. There is however one menu in which the machine will send a lot of bytes to let the HMI display text on the monitor. And it is simply too much for the Rpi to handl...

Re: Rpi NAS port forwarding

I have a KPN Xperia box V10, build by ZTE.

I just want to be able to scroll through the files and upload/download stuff remotely, essentially a Rpi based dropbox if you will.

Re: Kodi resolution problem

Well it is fixed now, in the calibration screen there are 2 arrows on the corners with which you can adjust the screen. In my preferred resolution I could not see these things. When I changed to a smaller reso, I just happen to have noticed them.

Doing the layout for 60 buttons manually using place is always going to be a pain. Mowa, not really, not for me atleast. I do this in processing all the time.

Re: Decent python website?

I cannot have 100% control over the button sizes. Besides that python is not recognizing the height= instruction. The value you put in the width function is not the amount of pixels, but the amount of letters. If I want bigger buttons, I apparently need to increase the text size but that part seems...

Re: Decent python website?

Which for loop? Indentation is a pain for newbies in python. It is best to use an text editor that shows the white space character so that you can be sure that all the code is indented correctly. For example (spaces replaced by full stops) def myFunction(args): ....print("first line of myFunction")...
