Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

AFAIK Raspbian provides libcec 1.6.x whereas RPi support has been introduced with the 1.8.x releases. This is never gonna work until Raspbian updates libcec to 1.8.x --or-- You can manually compile libcec 1.8.x on the RPi and install it that way That's what I did, compiled it, and made sure to unin...

Re: GPIO Permission Denied

I"ve started looking into the possibility of creating a GPIO group that a user could be added to. I have never played with udev before but this looks like it controls this type of thing for hardware permissions. Are there any udev experts out there that could give me some pointers? Doesn't look lik...

another thing, I see a few log in the home directory which contains an error about the libcec: ERROR: Unsupported libCEC interface version. 5634 is greater than the version XBMC supports (5888) though 5634 does not really seem greater than 5888 to me :mrgreen: Does xbmc actually require openGL?

Possibly, maybe ask apt-get what packages those files belong to? I can't remember the exact syntax.

Re: Too high voltage? (PSP PSU 5.4 V)

This would chain tot he regulated PS we're creating above with a voltage of 7.4V (2x 3.7v cells). Don't forget that's the "empty" voltage of lipo cells. They're 4.2 V/cell charged and they don't drop off much under light load. I still don't understand why you're even considering a linear regulator ...

I noticed your instructions explicitly disables a lot of useful features in the configure step, hence the lack of cec support. "--disable-pulse".

Quite easily built with components similar to what we're discussing. I'll look at buying in some li-po's and a few components and have a go at building something you guys can use.

Re: Too high voltage? (PSP PSU 5.4 V)

As mentioned, you will want to go for a low drop regulator if you want to keep the source voltage below about 8-9V. I'll do some experimenting later to see how low you can get with the various regulators I have around.

According to the OpenELEC wiki it requires "ssh" in the cmdline.txt, but it would appear that berry boot starts it in such a way that it doesn't read this file.

Re: Too high voltage? (PSP PSU 5.4 V)

A 7805 will deliver 1A and the R-Pi only takes 700mA so it should be fine as long as what's sourcing the current can provide that. The problem with the 1A rated chargers is they probably don't actually put out 5V at 1A. As the current increases the voltage likely drops. A higher rated charger will ...
