Re: Streaming PC signal to PI using power line adapters.

I'm not a very big fan of the powerline adapters. They won't work if they're attached to a surge protector or a UPS, they won't work if the circuits are on different phases, they won't work if the outlets are electrically isolated from each other in the circuit breaker panel for some reason. If the ...

Re: Rpi as a wifi-router: low speed over wireless

Wow, sorry for not responding any sooner, work is busy. Anyway, I asked about the setup because the Ethernet port on the Pi goes through the USB 2.0 Bus, meaning that you have a max (theoretical) speed of 35 MB/s (or 480 Mb/s if you like things in bits instead of bytes). Now I suspect (hope) that wh...

Re: Car audio project

My only thought is you'll end up consuming a 12v outlet that way. I've used a great thing in the past called "add a fuse". Basically it lets you connect two fuses to one fuse holder so you can safely power devices without pulling new wires through the fire shield of your car. They're pretty cheep ( ...

Re: Shairport V1 image

If it's not working on the model B+ then the issue is most likely that the boot files on the SD Card need to be updated using rpi-update. If the base image hasn't updated these files, you *should* be able to boot from the card in the older model B, run sudo rpi-update it's been a while, but a sudo a...
