Re: Add External Antenna to Raspberry Pi 3

Thank you for all your comments. I decided to keep Rpi3 as is and use a wifi USB device when placing rpi3 in a metal enclosure. Could you share with the group the name, model number and source of the wifi USB unit you purchased? I've been unsuccessful in locating a USB wifi dongle with detachable a...

Headless video playback

I'm a NOOB who's running his Pi in "headless" mode (connected to Win10 client via mstsc.exe ). I just got my camera connected and working. I've made a few *.JPG still-shots with raspistill . These display well with Desktop file manager; no problem there.... But I can't playback/view the videos from ...

Sensing/logging weight variations in beehive

I posted this yesterday in the General Discussion section and should have posted it into here instead. -=-=-=-=- A key "vital-sign" indicator of a honeybee hive's health is its weight or, to be more precise, its weight changes . So I'm attempting to harness the RasPi3B to the job of measuring and re...

Strain gauge/load cell advice needed

I need guidance finding a RasPi3B-compliant sensor to take and report constant (OK, once every 15 minutes, but full 24/7 persistence) weight measurements of a stationary mass. The “mass” is a fully-operational honeybee hive. I need to measure its weight and log its variation as these bugs gather nec...

Re: New to Pi

My footprints into this RasPi World are still very fresh and I share your teething pain. The experts will tell you never-Never-NEVER just pull the plug on this unit. You'll likely goober the OS on the SD card and thereafter blow another hour diddling with the NOOBS service. But telling you what NOT ...

SD Card Copier failure

Happy to see latest-version Raspian's new entry in MENU|Accessories:SD Card Copier utility. :D But it doesn't work on my RasPi3. :( Using either a NOOB Samsung 16gb EVO SD card or a freshly SDFormatted disk, I've repeatedly failed to make a copy of my Raspian OS card via the new CardCopier app. Each...

Re: Bluetooth not working after update - information needed!

My Bluetooth is WORKING as before. No problems here. But "as before" also means my RasPi still refuses to boot up fully functional and connected to my iPazzPort Bluetooth mini keyboard/mouse pad. I still have to boot up with an old USB keyboard/mouse and then manually fiddle with the Bluetooth servi...
