Re: 2-Way Communication via Telnet and an Automation System?

If you want to use some sort of web control at the end, why bother to write telnet server first? Just write your own web server (which is really easy with python and some libs). Then you can use what ever method you want to make those http requests (like if you use it from command line just simple c...

Re: Raspberry Pi Home Automation Ideas...

I have work in progress/done for following: 1) RPi internet radio / controller / alarm clock / temperatures 2) Arduino more temperatures / light control / display 3) Android software to simply control these from my phone over home WLan So RPi is the heart that connects these together, Arduino(s) con...

Re: Popping noise on analog output

Well done!!

You made something that sounded close to impossible looking the earlier posts. Thanks for taking the time to dig into this dom. I can live with the initial pop as long as I know I do not have pop every single time some app is giving audio out or ending the playback.

Re: Lights and monitoring

Hi, you can take a look at our open source domotic framework Freedomotic. Here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=5073 there is a specific topic. regards Hello, Unfortunately I will not be a huge help to your project. To be honest I hate java and this project of yours just prove...

Lights and monitoring

Hi all, I'm still waiting for my Pi but project research is already fully going on. I have three main purpose for my Pi as a "production" phase if the supply of them ever gets high enough that I dare to order myself a second one. 1) media player: (the HDMI with 1080p is just too tempting) This might...

Re: Cooling Ram + CPU

I think copper would cool down the raspberry better than aluminium Cu is a better heatsink material than Al, but it's probably gonna be surface area that limits performance for a sink of this size rather than materials. That said, anything is better than nothing. The battle between copper and alumi...

Re: Static I.P. on the Pi

Hi, It's a bit difficult to tell as we do not have info about your network configuration. I think the safer way to do that is record your PI's MAC address (# ifconfig -a) leave the interface setting to DHCP and log in to your router. From the routes DHCP menu you can set up static lease for the RPis...

Re: CAN Interface

Hey, This looks really interesting project. One think I would like to promote a bit. Megasquirt which was mentioned earlier could be really good development/education platform. It has can support from version 2, it's open and when you plug in the MS simulator board you get pretty cheap ECU + engine ...

Re: Powering Pi with 9.6v 1800mAh battery pack

You can also put 3Ohm resistor that can handle 8.5W between. That will limit it to 1667mA on 5 volts which is just below the 1700mA limit.

Re: python login shell?

How about booting the RPi to X and starting few terminals (FE. python, and file editor and bash) automatically:

And then you just specify the software you want to start at login in to the .xinitrc file in the users home directory.
