The screen turns off after so many minutes ??? SOLVED

I've got the latest and greatest Pi 3 complete with on board WiFi. All works and I'm running 26th Feb 2016 Raspbian on a 64GB class 10 SD card. It boots onto the desktop but if ignored for xx minutes (like many Unix's) the screen goes dark). The question is how do I turn this unwanted feature off as...

Re: Playing shop bought DVDs on Pi3 WiFi

Many thanks for responding. I tried it without buying the License and it didn't work for me. As Windows doesn't need a License, I really wonder whats going on. Especially as Mint 17.3 has two versions one without Codecs and the other with Codecs which works fine. Off Topic but it will be very intere...

Re: Playing shop bought DVDs on Pi3 WiFi

Is there any way to watch a video with the Pi 3 Wi ? Another question:- Does any one know what the current status of Codecs are for the Pi ? For many years it was easy to watch a film on a PC. Now it seems quite difficult. I ask this question as it seems (to me) particularly relevant to the Pi. A pu...

Playing shop bought DVDs on Pi3 WiFi

I'm using Raspbian 26th Feb 2016 on the latest and greatest Pi 3 with WiFi. How do I play it ? My old friend 'VLC' seems reluctant to do anything. I've got a trusted external USB DVD burner attached but currently I've no idea as what to do next. There seems to be a divide between what works out of t...

Re: Raspian Jesse and WiFi Config

The Benkin WiFi Dongle kept shutting down after about 3 minutes, so I replaced it with one from element 14 (Farnell UK)

which worked fine.

Re: Raspian Jesse and WiFi Config

Has anyone got WiFi running on the Pi Zero yet ?

Most interested to hear what you did to achieve that. And where you got your dongle from.

Raspian Jesse and WiFi Config

Am I being very dumb but how do you get to install a WiFi Dongle onto the Zero. Having internet would be really nice !

A year or two on the GUI was a most helpful application /'WiFi Config' but it seems to have escaped !

A most puzzled but otherwise Pi Zero is brilliant !

Does it need a different NOOBS or Raspian ?

Is there a special version for it ? Or does Raspian just work out of the box ?
