Re: Pi2 - is the file transfer over ethernet better than B+

? What's a 'proper' ethernet implementation?
The one in which ethernet chip is not connected to USB which can cause all sorts of problems.
Surely a implementation that works is 'proper'?
No. If it is not rock-solid I don't think it is 'proper'.

Re: Pi2 - is the file transfer over ethernet better than B+

I was looking for alternatives, but all of them has minuses (not perfect software, prices). So probably will fight with Pi 2 :-)
I think Odroid-c1 has a proper ethernet implementation for the same price as Raspberry Pi.

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

And that's not the only problem with raspi. It took a long time before I could use my Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 5000. It kept repeating or missing keys that I couldn't even log in typing password. I could use it by adding something to boot line which would then force all USBs to be 1.0. On...

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

RS Components is a reputable company which advertises this power supply as an accessory to raspi. I can't imagine them selling it without properly testing it. The cable was fixed to the power adapter, it couldn't be changed. And I'm not the only one to complain about ethernet on this forum. There ar...

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

The power supply was 1.2A from RS Components so it can't have been dodgy.
I guess I won't risk it the second time since not much has changes in the latest model.

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

As far as I understand, both USB and ethernet ports share the same bus (or something like that) which caused ethernet to drop occasionally. I know it invariably did in my case so I wonder if B+ now has the separate buses for ethernet and USB?

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

Is the LAN and USB implementation in Model B+ any different from Model B?
I used to have a Model B but I sold it because after a few days I would lose ethernet connectivity.
I need a rock-solid ethernet connection so I wonder if things have improved in Model B+?

Re: RetroArch on Raspbian: the tutorial

I use pisnes because it gives a much better analogue sound quality.
This is probably due to the analogue sound being more CPU intensive than digital HDMI sound.

That's what it does.
Having to zoom each page several times is a pain in the neck, hence this program was developed.

I haven't tried that adobe program but Kindle can view pdfs but you need to zoom every page which isn't very comfortable.

Re: Turbo overclock without SD corruption - is it possible?

Does this corruption occur randomly whilst running or does it look like it's shutdown properly and then failed to restart? If it's randomly occurred, can you check for any error message in dmesg?

It is possible because I'm using it, just not with external hdd, but with roms on a different partition on the SD card. First, you need to mount your hdd. If you're running GUI, hdd should be automounted, if not, mount it with command from this site: http://raspi.tv/2012/how-to-mount-and-use-a-usb-h...

Re: Getting my RPi tomorrow, question about SNES project.

Try playing Axelay without overclocking and report FPS stats.
That game is unplayable unless overclocked at at least 900MHz.
Only at 1000MHz does it run full speed (PAL version).
