Re: Raspberry Pi 4 USB mass storage beta

I've managed to find a device that breaks USB boot if it is attached. I have a pair of Startech.com 3.5" HDD enclosures (S3510BMU33), which are single drive enclosures. I have a 1TB hard disk in each which currently make up a ZFS pool that I have used successfully with Raspbian, and now Ubuntu 20.04...

Re: Running x86_64 apps on Raspberry Pi

Just thought I would mention - even Microsoft doesn't have a product to run x64 Windows software on ARM - they only support x86 (i.e. 32-bit) Windows applications, and ARM-native of course, on their ARM version of Windows. So expecting Raspberry Pi to have the ability to run x64 Windows applications...

It's both 4Gbps and 5Gbps. 4Gbps is the bandwidth available to do actual work, 5Gbps is the raw bitrate on the wire, including protocol overheads - see the Data encoding section at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_3.0

Use raspi-config to set the wifi country code, as that helpful message is telling you to do. If it already shows the correct country code when you go into raspi-config to change it, set it to another country code, then back to the correct one to make sure it has disabled rfkill.

But it also seems that you cannot switch back to HDMI using keys 1 or 2 of NOOBS when enable_tvout is set. That's normal on the Pi 4B. There is no way to change from HDMI to composite, or vice versa, once the Pi 4B has booted. Unlike other Pi models, you cannot use HDMI and composite at the same ti...

IMO I would be inclined to remove all reference to composite in NOOBs docs and specify HDMI only.

Not up to me, but that would be a bad idea. It is meant to work, so should be in the documentation. If it doesn't work, then it needs fixed.
