Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Thanks for PINN...very handy. The true test for me would be when i break an install, would I be able to reinstall it without losing the other 2. The short answer was yes. I use: Raspian Full LibreElec Raspian Lite Raspian Lite being the one I normally break. I've put all 3 on a SSD and I broke Lite ...

Re: Pi4 with 4Gb Ram. Setting max mem for GPU ?

When I set it to max, it was via the Pi settings in Raspian. The highest was 800 plus. I'll just leave it at stock going by the above explinations. A bit curious what you meant by "codecs" are these the same codecs used for playing/enconding types of video/audio? Edited my post above to clarify tha...

Re: Pi4 with 4Gb Ram. Setting max mem for GPU ?

I'm not sure if it's a fault but I set mine to max and Raspian failed to boot. I edited the config.txt via a Windows PC back to 64 and the Pi booted ok again.

Maybe it's a thing on the "to do" list but my Pi 4 (4GB) didn't play nice with high settings.

Re: Raspian Lite on Pi 4

I went back to the full version for another look round and found that there were many settings disabled. Once enabled and some added and removed software, it's turning into a capable desktop that looks like something out of this decade, not a few ago! "flat is better" Flat can be good but not when i...

Re: Raspian Lite on Pi 4

You might find the the comparative lists prepared by this forum user helpful? https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=244211 Alternatively, but lacking the 'gain experience by doing it yourself' element, you could use the "Desktop but no installed software' variant of Raspbian?

Raspian Lite on Pi 4

Hi All, I've been testing out the Pi 4 with Raspian and I'm finding it helpful to use the "Lite" route. I'm using the lite version for a few reasons, the main one being learning a bit more about Linux in general and a clean base to start from. I have no problem having to start from scratch if I make...

Re: Should I wait for Raspberry Pi 4b+ (4GB Ram)?

I went for the 4GB just to cover any future needs. For the small extra cost it made more sense IMO.

I was hovering over the buy button too long on the first batch. Used the "Notify Me" from Pi Hut. Got the email and ordered first thing last Friday morning, got the Pi the next day!

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

I have the Pi 4 (4GB) Apart from it being very toasty, the performance seems to be lacking. I've tried Raspian and it suffers bad screen tearing and barely plays x264 via VLC. x265 are not an option unfortunately. I've tried Raspian lite and one media centre (the ELEC one) again with varied results....
