Re: Raspberry Pi 4 - new VLI firmware issues

Thanks, starting to see a theme of adapters here... The "data mismatch" issue has been identified - there will be an updated vl805 utility distributed at some point in the future. Thanks for the feedback, the data mismatch was particularly frustrating as it's not predictable, I initially thought it...

Sure, I'll get that when I'm home from work... it's a USB 3.1 Gen 2 to M.2 SATA III adapter, the Amazon listing says it's a VL716 but I'll confirm this with lsusb tonight.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 - new VLI firmware issues

I'm getting the data mismatch problem that Chimneyfactory mentioned however in my case I can't flash back to default even after a reboot: I downloaded the file directly on the Pi then followed the instructions. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo ./vl805 -w vl805_fw_013701.bin VL805 FW version: 00000000 * data ...

Re: USB SB X-Fi on Raspbian

Having the same issue with my Creative XFi HD USB... The device is detected and playing a 24bit/96khz WAV results in horrible scratchiness, this is a real shame, I'd love to use this card with the Pi. UPDATE: I converted the same file to 16bit/44.1khz and plugged the XFi into a powered hub, this mad...

Re: stupid question on IR receiver....

Run this:
dmesg | grep lirc_rpi

if all is good you should get an output similar to the below:

Re: PHP GPIO Library

You'd be a hero in the RPi world if you did!!!

The amount of potential that would open up is huge.

I'd have a go myself but have no idea where to start... any pointers? Guess I could start by looking at the python wrapper.

The Pro ones have round corners on the end piece where the air ones are right angles...

Re: Shame on you eBay sellers!

I don't disagree with making a profit and I understand how the retail business works, however as I understand there is not yet a wholesale outlet for these devices which means the seller must have (assuming they were procured legally) purchased them at RRP, and is selling them for 3 to 4 times!

You can get reasonably cheap RS232 to Ethernet servers... would be much simpler than using an RPi to do this (there's way cooler stuff the Pi can do), all you'd need then is a script on the myth box to pass on commands, and to top it off it could be controlled by anything on your network. http://www...

I've attempted something similar with an Apple TV 2 (similar hardware specs to RPi, but has a faster CPU) running XBMC and streaming DVB-T content via network, it failed miserably on anything other than Standard Def, based on that I would say yes the RPi will handle SD content however HD content wil...

I'd go with a USB dongle like error404 suggested... it will be easier in the long run, having a separate access point just increases your power consumption and makes another point of failure... well 3 if you count the PSU and associated cabling.
