Re: cover options for Pi 3A+ case

For both the RPi 3 series and RPi 4 series I would say just use a stand, that holds the board in a vertical orientation and only contacts at one edge, giving enough space between the board and bottom of the RPi and the bottom of the stand to allow for good air flow. It is easy to throw a design tog...

Re: cover options for Pi 3A+ / Pi4 case

I'm raising my voice again here on this request, but now for Pi4. it makes sense to have a custom cover for the official case to support the camera out of the box with custom cable. Adding PoE hat inside the case (with suitable design for its fan) with the camera makes it more convenient as a home c...

Re: Buster bug report thread

OK, this is surprising, the OS team adopted the new java 11 in buster as the default java but it is not supported anymore in the old armv6 (pi0). this is like discontinuing java totally for Pi zero the topic is been discussed previously in: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=196887 ...

Re: Why are Raspberry Pi still using Java 8 when Java 11 is available?

Probably java 8 will remain the main jdk for quite long time. Pi0 is armv6 and java 8 is the last working version on this platform. I'll admit I haven't checked, but I'd be very surprised if openjdk 11 didn't work on a pi 0. we already killed this topic here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view...

cover options for Pi 3A+ case

Hi,

Pi 3A+ is very nice one and i hope if we can have a cover for the official case to fix the camera on it, in the same way the case for Pi zero. this will include a small cable as well

Re: 2 new options for raspivid

thank you all,

so --spstimings is good to have all the time.
for --slices, it helps in reducing the latency but with less compression efficiency. reducing the latency is good for me so i will start playing with it. i guess practical values should be within 1 - 5
