Re: Pimoroni 7 days and not ship rpi4.

They are doing the same as everyone else, waiting for shipments from the factory. We are currently making over 15000 Pi4 PER DAY and increasing, and are trying to catch up with demand. A company should not charge what it can not send . So simple. When I placed the order there was stock and the orde...

Re: Pimoroni 7 days and not ship rpi4.

The problem is that I could have bought it in Spain because I discovered a day after a Spanish supplier who had the rpi4 but I trusted Pimoroni and I only buyed for the PSU official on spain supplier.
Now I have a very nice power source and not the rpi4 and no answers from Pimoroni.

Re: 5V 4-pin Noctua A4X10 on Raspberry Pi

... Yes.The Noctua NA FC1 fan controller is a PWM fan controller. But given that the fan already has a controller inside it, having another one on top of it, seems kind of a waste :S My only problem with that is that it does not allow speed reading, or speed control via software :) Yes.The Noctua N...

Re: 5V 4-pin Noctua A4X10 on Raspberry Pi

And how exactly are you doing that? Does the Pi recognize the fan via USB? How to set it to something like 30% or 40%, for example? Do you have the NA FC1 fan controller? You only need the fan the cable adptor and the fan controller.That's all. The USB port of the adaptor cable is connected to anot...

Re: Chromium youtube videos bad performance on rpi3B+

Another update: The old version may have used memcpys whereas the new version uses DMA. Although DMA copies reduced the CPU usage, they seem to be a little slower. Going back to memcpy seems to improve video playback and the expense of higher CPU usage, which may not be a good trade-off on armv6 pi...

It's looking more and more like change in upstream chromium rather than anything related to the mmal patches. We'll keep looking into it, but it's not looking promising.
