Re: Weather Station Components

Awesome, thx for the hint! I also searched on aliexpress with the name of the maplin products but that way I haven't found anything useful! As I see they also offer a set including a rack which might save me some construction time. ;-)

Sadly the shipping costs even more than the whole product... :-/

Re: Weather Station Components

Hi willip5, thank you for your reply. Banggood also doesn't offer these products, but it is also good to know that these maplin parts are flimsy. It would be nice to get some more information about your weather station. Soldering is absolutely no problem, I got enough experience even with smd parts....

Re: Weather Station Components

Re: RPi Touchscreen - How to turn it off?

You can just switch off the backlight of hdmi screens by forcing them into power-saving mode. But as far as i know there is currently no way to set the brightness of the hdmi screen. The only option i read about was a kernel patch to give the user access to the corresponding i2c connector and then y...

Re: Sleep Mode - and or turn off backlight?

Does these discussions lead to anything?! I have to agree that this was a really bad story. In fact I bought the previous version after I have informed myself. In the beginning they said that brightness control isn't implemented yet but that it will follow. Also they said in the beginning that the o...

Re: Sleep Mode - and or turn off backlight?

What I've seen so far a lot of people (including me) want to use it for alarm clock or at least as a smart home control display. ;-)

Re: RPi Touchscreen - How to turn it off?

So you could execute rpi-update and see if that solves your problem! ;-)

Re: RPi Touchscreen - How to turn it off?

I'm not quite sure whether apt-get dist-upgrade is enough. I guess you also have to do rpi-update, did you do so?!

Re: Can I turn off DSI LCD?

Sure, the feature could arrive in the next 4 days. But let's be realistic, we are talking about programming stuff! There is still a chance that it might take a bit more time! :-D

Yeah last week they said that it should be done IN the next week. That week has just started so it can still take a few days ;-)

Re: Sleep Mode - and or turn off backlight?

You'll get it when it is ready. Makes sense! :-D Of course we are patient. But it would be nice to get some feedback about the estimated time until it is finished/published. I don't think the coding will take that much time but depending on human resources, more important tasks and release cycles, ...

Re: Touch screen interface with MS Exchange

MS Exchange is a very special project... I tried to connect to my exchange server from java. I found a provided library, but without documentation or any further support... I guess there might be much better libraries available for other programming languages, but I never tried or even searched for ...

Re: Sleep Mode - and or turn off backlight?

Sounds really good so far. Please notify us, when there is a (beta) release published! =)
What are the values that we can set? 0-255 -> Off-On?!
