Re: How to access the Pi off another computer?

My mac can read and write also ext* file systems ;) so I will give it a try tomorrow but what bothers me now is that the USB pen drive I am trying to use as a storage for music is not mounted/shown within Moode (which is the music player running on the Pi), first attempt was with a MacOS formatted d...

Re: How to access the Pi off another computer?

Step one: Enable ssh. To do that, use another system to put a file name "ssh" in the first partition, aka /boot. Step two: On a Windows system, install PuTTY. On a Mac, a terminal window will work. Step three: Find out the IP address of your Pi. If you connect to your router, there should be a list...

How to access the Pi off another computer?

Just curious, today I got my first ever Pi 3B+ which is already up and running as a music server through Moode, I haven't yet figured how to find the path to my NAS to stream music and also why it doesn't read an old FAT32 USB dongle with some music onto it but the question here is, since the Pi is ...

Re: Case for both the Pi and a 2.5" HD/SSD?

it looks like the gpio header attachement is only supplying the +5v and gnd from the base board which appears to have its data connection to the pi routed via the usb interface. If so you should be able to use any hats you want and simply move the gnd and +5v connections to the top board in your HA...

Re: Case for both the Pi and a 2.5" HD/SSD?

Well so far it seems these boards use the USB bus which sure is faster than going through ETH in my case of utilisation of the Pi (music server) even to it won't do justice to a dedicated SSD but given the prices for small sized ones (with a 256GB I'd do more than fine at hosting my music) it sure i...

Case for both the Pi and a 2.5" HD/SSD?

Hello, was wondering if there is a way to have a single solution for both a Pi and a 2.5" HD as to have either a file server or, like in my own idea, a music server with music on a fast and capable 2.5" SSD rather than on an USB dongle. Of course it should somehow have a bus faster than USB otherwis...

Re: Any way to connect a DVI display to a Pi?

Since I can't seem to find a female DVI to male HDMI I should use an adapter, do you think this https://www.amazon.it/UGREEN-Adattatore ... na+to+hdmi would do it?

Any way to connect a DVI display to a Pi?

Long story short, I still own a beautiful Apple Cinema Display HD 23" with the proprietary ADC connection (Apple used to have a single cable to carry power as well as signal and USB to the display) and an Apple ADC to DVI converter as to use it with whatever any computer with a DVI output, since I a...
