Re: Jetson Nano or RPI4

Forum is usually more right than me. Sorry, though for sure I did Hangout calls with older rpi systems, might have been microphone off USB camera. Sorry for my confusion. Octane scores discussed in previous post ( https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=243783 ) constantly moving tar...

Re: Jetson Nano or RPI4

You may be right. Looks like at least 4 connectors on the audio output. I've used it successfully with headphones. But haven't tested it with a headset. Seems like my rpi2&3's worked with headsets.

Jetson Nano or RPI4

If anyone is interested in a comparison of the Jetson Nano to the RPI4 I wrote up a comparison including the audio and video capabilities. https://other2funstuff.blogspot.com/2019/11/jetson-nano-and-rspberry-pi-4.html And just as heads up Microcenter has lowered prices on some RPI4s in store.

Re: A simple PI4 fan controller

Thanks for the post and experiment. Estimated cost? Might want to check fan blowing both into and out of enclosure for energy and cooling difference.

By the way, if you run "sudo ./vl805" with no parameters it displays the version of the currently running firmware. Note that this may differ from what's in the EEPROM if you've just reprogrammed it but not rebooted.
VL805 FW version: 000137a8

Re: FLAC working on Rpi4 1 GB, not working on 4 GB

Today reflashed Raspbian Buster desktop. FLAC files from original source are now playing fine in VLC with Pi4 4 GB RAM. Files that were transferred previously still do not work. Something was wrong with the file transfer which corrupted the FLACs, don't know what it was. Go figure.

Re: Outdated Octane Benchmark Score on Raspberry Pi 4 1 GB RAM

Saw the official case and thought that the pi4 is going to need a fan because my temps were already higher than I like without a case so didn't purchase. The outdated octane scores I posted didn't include any case in a relatively cool room.

Re: FLAC working on Rpi4 1 GB, not working on 4 GB

Yes, had a USB 3.0 thumbdrive and USB 3.0 Hard drive connected. Put the FLACs onto the desktop, shutdown, removed t he USB 3.0 devices. Still, FLAC over VLC doesn't work properly, gaps, jumps.

Again, worked on 1 GB RAM with USB 3.0 devices, not working on 4 GB RAM. Thanks.

Any reason a FLAC file plays with gaps on a 4 GB RAM Rpi4, but works fine on 1 GB RAM version? Same microSD card, VLC player.

Re: Outdated Octane Benchmark Score on Raspberry Pi 4 1 GB RAM

Outdated Octane Benchmark Score on Raspberry Pi 4 4 GB RAM is 8454.

Just trying to show rpi scores. Yes, have lots of other scores from other OS and boxes, but hoping this is helpful to the Rpi community to compare and contrast old benchmarks to new 4 versions.

Great job by the Foundation to keep this quiet, something the bigger companies can't do. That itself is a valuable performance.

Can't wait to team the 4 with a Coral usb.
