Re: Endless slideshow with FIM using argument --slideshow

ForFruit,

Your question was interesting (to me and many others who do not need a whole desktop/GUI environment) and your answer made a lot of sense. It was not obvious and I appreciate your work to discover the solution and explain it to us! Thank you very much!

Re: 433MHz Rx module that plugs directly on GPIO pins?

The standard simple on/off key transmitters are pretty low power. I have no problem running them from Pi pins. The standard little low cost modules are very small and can easily be fitted inside a Pi case using a 3way socket to socket dupont lead. btidey, I'm very curious to know what library you'r...

Re: Interface w/ RFM69W wireless module via SPI?

This post is a bit old, but it's #1 on Google for 'rfm69 raspberry pi' and I thought it might be useful to point out that etrombly has a promising port of Low Power Lab's (i.e., the Moteino guy) RFM69 library ... Just to save someone the trouble of going to look, I'm posting to add the word Python ...

Re: Raspberry Pi vs. Beagle Bone Black

The RPi has a VERY big user base - it didn't matter that BetaMax was better than VHS - everyone used VHS so the game was over Simon, surely if we are hardware geeks, or computer enthusiasts, or merely humans who want stuff to work well, then we should stand against this? I'm not saying BeagleBone B...

I am very interested in this application, for shutters and other motor-controlled home automation. I certainly have no answers for you but thank you for the pointer to CurlyMoo. I hope you will keep this thread updated as you explore inexpensive RF!

Can anyone confirm this? For some purposes 0.5 W vs. 0.12 W makes no difference, but for some purposes (or for sizing a micro UPS) it does. Thanks for any info!
