Re: Making a gamecube controller adapter for wii u

Somebody has emulated the (currently sold out everywhere) official GC adapter to allow any USB controller as a Super Smash Bros controller via a Beaglebone Black. https://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/2pnsx1/mod_use_almost_any_usb_controller_with_smash_wii_u/ The Raspberry Pi SPI or GPIO pins ...

Re: Using DVBLink TVSource as PVR on RPi

I know you posted your problem in late-2013. but I get a similar error installing dvblink-server 5.0.0 and it's probably not worth opening a new thread for a problem that may not get a solution: pi@raspbmc:~/dvblink$ sudo dpkg -i dvblink-server_5.0.0_armhf_wheezy.deb Selecting previously unselected ...

Re: Where is the Bottleneck?

All data has to pass down a single USB 2 bus, so 480Mbits/s max. Take away half that for USB overhead, 280Mbits/s. Now that need to be shared between the HD/USB stick and the ethernet. So 140MBits/s. That's probably an absolute max you are going to get (about 15MB/s) Now you probably have some more...

Re: Wii Remote Interface

Just found this post. And once I get my powered usb hub and also a wii sensor cheap I plan on trying this out asap. Anyone have a good way to hook the bar up to the raspberry pi? Any old infrared LEDs work as a sensor bar. Though a I nicer setup would be to buy $2-3 wii sensor bar (from eBay or som...

Re: Wii Remote Interface

<r>The Wii's Opera Browser and Kylo (<URL url="http://kylo.tv/">http://kylo.tv/</URL>) have great interfaces for Wii remotes. Unfortunately Kylo is Windows-only and the Wii's Opera Browser is obviously only for Wii.<br/> <br/> We should make a browser extension ourselves to bring these features to e...

Re: "HDMI-CEC" : Using your current TV remote to control R-Pi (and more!)

<t>Raspberry Pi has the full HDMI implementation, alongside the basic audio/video output it can use "HDMI-CEC," a less well-known communications protocol built in the HDMI specification. CEC stands for "Consumer Electronics Control".<br/> <br/> This allows your TV to communicate with HDMI devices, l...

Re: Devices that you will be purchasing for use with you Rpi

<r>That makes sense: a maximum of 480mbps to share somehow between USB devices and ethernet.<br/> <br/> So does that mean a R-Pi model A is with a USB hub + a USB to ethernet adapter is effectively same as a model B (except for RAM)?<br/> <br/> I\'m still a little skeptical that it is. I hope we are...

Showing somebody new to the project the homepage, with its ever-changing blog posts, no video, no pictures and is not a good way to begin.<br/> <br/> A new user (with no understanding of the project) should be abl...
