The 1A port should be capable of powering your Pi.carhandle wrote:I’m looking into what I can do differently and note that the TV has 3 x USB ports (2 x 5V 0.5A and 1 x 5V 1A).
I suspect that switching the Pi on will be no problem. Shutting it down, on the other hand, might not be so good.And will it/can it be set up so the RPi is automatically switched on/off as my TV is?
In theory that could be made to work on all but the first version RPi's which had polyfuses in the 5 volt lines to the USB sockets. In practice you shouldn't be able to buy a cable with the two identical connectors. And you would need to disconnect the other two signal wires in the cable.Mikeb13603 wrote:So my dumb question is this:
When you power the RPi from the TV, is this by connecting the TVs USB port (that can supply 1A) to a USB port on the RPi?
