Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hi, a servoblaster question. I have set up a pan and tilt mech, 2 servos running from pin 7 and 21 on the header. I can only reliably control only one. The other stutters, freezes and jumps. This is the one connected to the up and down arrow in the web interface. If I switch the servo connections, t...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

No settings changed, absolutely first click on 'motion detection begin', now I get as the poster at the top of page 131. raspimjpeg error, reboot or restart Worked t...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Just tried that, no luck again. It's all good, will have to get with the times tomorrow with Jessie. Regarding motion, most useful feature I'd miss is the mask.pgm feature, have a road in shot and I blank that out easily. Not sure this can be done with internal motion? Also on capture end, motion up...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Having a frustrating time today, for some reason motion is fouled up. Has been fine for months, no issues. Today, RPi Cam interface is working fine, if I use internal motion, all is well. Just external. I'd like to use motion for some quirks. Any ideas what to check? I click begin motion detection s...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Newcomer to this long thread, still reading through. Is there a way for an external program to trigger a still capture? Or gpio event? I'm thinking to trigger video/still capture not by motion event but say a reed switch on door. Thanks! EDIT.. doh! From ssh session on the pi: echo -n 'ca 1' >/var/w...

Re: Script fails after some hours

If your "requests.post" statement fails for whatever reason, you'll get an unhandled exception and the program will terminate. You might try putting that statement inside a "try / except". V interesting, hadn't thought about this. Will add a try/except like you mention ..snip This is all completely...

Re: Script fails after some hours

..you say that the pins go high "momentarily" but by waiting half a second then checking the inputs you stand a good chance of missing the signal. Is this intentional.. Hi paddyg. The pins are connected to either side of the same 2 position momentary switch. It appears very 'noisy', lots of false e...

Script fails after some hours

Hi I need to post a command from my pi 2 to a lan pc depending on state of 2 gpio pins. Ignoring the gpio states, if I fire off a command using curl from the pi, at any time, works great. Payload of 500 sets it on, payload of 100 set it off, no issues ever with curl so I am sure the fundamentals wor...

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

Well, finally got it running. Old b pi sd card wouldn't boot on pi2. Downloaded new raspbian image, installed on the card then once that was working, changed cmdline.txt to look to sda. Worked a treat. Not sure why original files on SD wouldn't work but all happy now. Cheers

Hi. Thanks to this thread, I have been running an old PiB for many months from a usb stick. Thank you all My PiB sd card is actually a micro sd running in an Adafruit adapter. Now I have a Pi2. I wish to move the PiB micro sd and usb to the Pi2 as is, hoping to avoid lot of configuration. On the PiB...

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

Hi, also thanks for this how to, worked well. From a rookie, how would I now backup the USB before making big changes/experiments! With sd used win32 tool. Now with 64gig USB, this will give 64gig image? Too big. Cheers

Edit.. Rsync sorted this issue!
