Re: Movie2Serial on Raspberry Pi (LED array)

Movie2Serial on Raspberry Pi (LED array)

I am new to the Raspberry Pi so I apologize in advance if I am missing something totally obvious. I also posted this topic on the Processing site but haven't gotten any feedback. I am trying to play video on my LED WS2812 array. Currently, the array has 89 pixels per strip and 64 strips. In the past...

Installing Arduino IDE

I am trying to install Arduino using these instructions: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Linux Every time I try to extract the downloaded files by right clicking on the compressed file and selecting Extract Here, Xarchiver pops up and does a bunch of stuff. About 15 seconds into doing stuff it stops...

Re: Practicality of OTA PVR

@Wurlitzer, I am originally from Western New York but I live in California now. Thanks for all the commentary! I think I have enough to get started now but I am sure I will be back here as I run into problems. I was looking at LibreElec but I wasn't sure if it would make things easier or not. I will...

Re: Practicality of OTA PVR

@Wurlitzer thanks for the realism. It sounds like I am in for a challenge. Did any of the tutorials you read stand out as better for a lamen like me (I also notice that a lot of them leave out key steps)? I still don't understand the advantage of the HD homerun so I am planning to go with the Hauppa...

Re: Practicality of OTA PVR

@Sumatra I was just about to open a new thread on this very topic when I saw your post. I have a beaglebone but I am thinking about getting a Raspberry Pi as there seems to be more literature on this type of project. Do you think it would really matter? I too was looking at using a Hauppage TV tuner...
