Re: Raspberry Pi on tonights episode of Revolution

I know that stuff but I still think accuracy would be better.

Re: Raspberry Pi on tonights episode of Revolution

I know the second picture is from a time when it is already on. So I find it funny that they didn't bother to have a SD card in it for accuracy. I get the no power line since it is being powered from the first generation nano tech, but the SD card just seems lazy.

Re: Wireless power on / reset button

I gave up on the Youtube idea because i couldn't get good lighting to make it look decent. But after a week and I have had no problems with it. Other then it increasing the times I lay in bed watching TV since I don't have to get up to turn it on.

I have the exact doorbell from the X-box tutorial and here is what I am assuming will be the connections based on your info. Feel free to correct any problems considering I literally ha...

Re: Wireless power on / reset button

I think you are missing the point of making the button wireless. I know just shorting those together works, but I want to use a wireless doorbell from across the room to do it. I need to know how to connect the doorbells receiver into the pi. This is so my bedrooms pi running XBMC can be started wit...

Wireless power on / reset button

I have a idea for my pi that I have previously done on a original X-Box and need a little tech advice from people that are more technically inclined then my ability to just follow good instructions. Here is the original X-Box tutorial I followed (I even plan on extracting the hardware from the X-Box...
