Re: Energenie on RISCOS and BASIC

Yes. I am running RC15 and have the documentation for the gpio module v1.0 I am now beginning to think that I may have a duff board (or, less likely) two duff switches, as the pi-mote will also not work on Linux with well publicised Python software. I have ordered another pi-mote board from a differ...

Re: Energenie on RISCOS and BASIC

GPIO support is integrated in RISC OS. There is some documentation for the module : https://www.riscosopen.org/viewer/view/bsd/RiscOS/Sources/ThirdParty/TankStage/HWSupport/GPIO/Docs/GPIO%2C3d6 I think there is also a Basic library, but I can't find it. It's very easy to use. I have the documentati...

Energenie on RISCOS and BASIC

Has anybody used the Energenie GPIO board on a Pi B+ with RISCOS, preferably coding in BASIC An example program would be nice :) The interface is unnecessarily complicated. All it needed was one GPIO pin which, when set, simulated the signal for button 1-ON on the normal remote control being pressed...

New B+ Case from Farnell

Having been very pleased with everything else from Farnell, I have to say that I am not impressed with the new B+ cases. The old cases for the Model B were (are?) far superior:- - a much more substantial plastic body - "clear" meant clear; the new ones are opaque! - LEDs were properly visible - case...

Re: Has anyone bought Nut Pi?

Re: "You can switch cards at any time".

Not really true. You can switch cards with care - depending on what the Pi is doing at the time.

It is not really a good idea as there no equivalent of the Windows "remove USB card" facility.
