Re: Raspberry Pi 4 ethernet sometimes works

Have you actually tested the cables with a LAN cable tester to prove all 8 cores are connected reliably ? Try testing you pi4's using a different network switch just to prove its not a switch compatibility or switch setting problem. So I took the PI home with me yesterday to try it in a different s...

1) use an official RPI PSU
2) try another Ethernet cables
Sorry I forgot to add that I've done both of those already.

Raspberry Pi 4 ethernet sometimes works

So the issue I'm having is the ethernet doesn't work all the time on the RPI4. It'll sometimes wake up for half a day and then you restart it and it's gone for a week and then just wakes up randomly, truly bizarre. I've tried the PIs on Raspbian Buster, DietPi and WTWare (This is the best OS for Thi...

Raspberry Pi 4 Ethernet Port Issue

So this is the second PI4 I've had with this issue. The first one just did not recognise the ethernet cable whatsoever when the pi3 did. The newer pi4 I received recognised the cable for a bit but then stopped and won't recognise at all now. What can I do to test the port? Or is it software? Or is i...

Re: STICKY: Using a Gert VGA 666 adapter - [HOWTO]

Got this successfully working as a second monitor but now I have the problem with the vga cable, everything has fuzzy lines over the screen, I have one cable that is 95% okay. So has anyone bought a good vga cable that they can link?

Re: Multiple Frame buffer beta testers wanted

Having an issue where fb1 does not show in the console after using the ls /dev/fb* command but I'm still getting the rainbow screen on the second monitor. Any one else had this issue or know how to fix it?

Dual Monitor RDP machine with a 3b+?

So I've been tasked with finding out if this is possible. I've got the 3b+ along with a Gert VGA 666 adaptor but it can't display to desktops at the same time or I can't get it to recognise the VGA while the HDMI is enabled. So essentially is this project possible with the Pi? Remote desktoping to a...
