Scratchy YouTube audio over HDMI -- Raspbian, 3B+

I had to re-install Rasbian on my 3b+ and am having a problem. When playing YouTube video, the HDMI audio is scratchy using Chromium. It SEEMS like it is a problem where the CPU cannot keep up. However, using an older version of Raspbian on the exact same hardware, I was able to play YouTube just fi...

Re: APCUPSD and /proc/bus/usb

What I figured out was that having ANYTHING for the device path in the config file killed the USB auto-detect. You just have to set the cable type to USB (funny how this is not the default) and make sure that "device" is left blank. This might even work with the apt-get version (no need to compile)....

With a 4G card being easily available for under $10 USD, if it wears out after two years, toss it and throw another one in.

APCUPSD and /proc/bus/usb

Hi. I am trying to get the "APCUPSD" package running (connects the Pi to an APC uninerruptable power supply). The purpose is to have the Pi allow me to remotely monitor and power up/down the UPS. Documentation here: http://www.apcupsd.org/manual/manual.html The problem is that it just plain fails. (...

Re: Resizing partitions

Quick story: I tried using "gparted" and the latest Ubuntu (running from a USB drive) to move/resize partitions, and it always crashed. Using the command-line "parted" instructions in the Wiki worked fine for me and opened up my 16GB card.

Re: Display does not work on big monitor, works on little on

OK. I solved it. The key turned out to be finding the right modes. hdmi_group=2 and hdmi_mode=69 gives me a perfect 1920x1200 display (awesome). The trick turned out to be turning ssh on, and booting the device with the non-working display. From there, I was able to ssh in and determine what modes w...

No ideas yet?

I do admit that it is a little perverse hooking up a $35 computer up to a $1200 monitor. :o

Display does not work on big monitor, works on little one.

I finally got a chance to really play with my Pi tonight, and I cannot get it work with my big monitor over DVI. I have a HUGE 30-inch 2560x1600 monitor (Dell U3011), and I CANNOT get the Pi to talk to this monitor over a HDMI-to-DVI cable. Note that this exact same cable works great with my spare D...

Re: Ethernet chip gets raging hot

Just for the record, mine is hot too (from RS). I can keep my finger on there for about five seconds before too much pain. There is almost NO network traffic, and the only thing hooked up to USB is a single Logitech nano-receiver for a wireless keyboard/mouse combo (note that the wireless receiver i...

Re: Setting up HDMI output

Can somebody tell me what the difference between CEA and DMT modes? There is considerable overlap in the resolutions and refresh rates. Which one should you choose for a monitor (DVI) vs. a TV (HDMI)?

Thanks.

Re: Using an iPad/iPhone/Something as a display?

VNC is available on Android (should be on iPad too, unless Apple still has a hissy-fit over anything open-source on their store).  It should be no problem to get VNC running on a Pi, since (AFAIK) there is a completely open-source server.

Re: proposing a name for R-PI expansion boards.

Whipped cream?

I actually think that "crust" would be the most appropriate, but, for some reason, not the most attractive name.

**EDIT**

Somebody should make an expansion board called "a la mode".  That would be sweet!
