Re: Beginners fail - NOOBS wont fit on 4GB card

Thanks for workarounds, I had already found other posts stating to delete unneeded files, but that is not the point if wanting to get the kids involved. NOOBS lite it not a solution either if following Carrie Anne's book, it is not covered. I deliberately left him to it, to make him work things thro...

Beginners fail - NOOBS wont fit on 4GB card

Just gave my 13 year old son a copy of Carrie Anne's book, my Raspberry Pi, 2 Sandisk Ultra 4GB SD cards, cables etc and left him to it. He failed immediately as NOOBS wont fit on a 4GB card, picking Rasbians says needs 2512 MB but only 2369 MB is available. This is a major problem for beginners who...

Re: No more Gert... kits

I got my kit from Tandy a couple of weeks ago, assembled in 2-3 hours last weekend and it was fun even educational. I am not new to soldering having assembled through hole kits 30 years ago as a teenager and the odd custom interface cable in my job, but never any SMD. It is nowhere near as difficult...

Re: HDMI not working from new??

Hi Got my Pi yesterday, composite video worked ok to TV, but no HDMI to TV (1.2m cable). I found this post but it offered no solutions. Tried another HDMI cable (existing 10m cable from a PC to TV) and it worked, so I tried the 1.2m cable again and it didn't work. Here's MY solution, I swapped 1.2m ...
