Re: Asus Tinker board

Lots of Raspberry Pi's are sold as the heart of a mediacenter solution, bundles are popular with a price wehre the board itself is not the only part of the price (case, power, cables, remote control, sd card). If only a fraction of the 11 million Pi's sold are sold to people with a 4K television the...

Re: 25 years ago: the birth of Linux

Perhaps Minix may come to the Pi 2 or better 3.

Currently Minix is ported to the Beagleboard, ARM V8 required, which is also in the Pi.

Re: Flirc in python

If I understand the FLIRC specs it behaves as a HID device after programming it. This means you assign keycodes to IR remote buttons. Have you tried something simple: program a key IR remote key for example as 'A', plug in the FLIRC in the USB port and see if the A character appears on the commandli...

Alex, did you notice any quality improvements? Amount of megapixels is not all that determines video quality. Amount of noise, contrast range to name a few matter too.
