Re: Raspberry 4 not recognizing USB-Hub behind USB-switch

As i said above, i also tried to connect the hub without the HD being connected - so the HD is not to blame. And i also said that i am using the original Raspberry Pi 4 power adapter.

Hi Trev, here the screenshots (1280_1, 1280_2 and 1920_1, 1920_2). I hope it helps.

Re: VLC for Buster - pi4 4gb Problem @ 1280x720

Thank you for your advice - but that didn't help at all. It was -even with all contents deleted - the same pic. What i discovered is that in 1920x1080 resolution the appearance is better - i also get the top window line with the min/max/close buttons. In 1280x720 this is not available. Seems to me a...

Glad you finally got it backed up (I hope you tested the restoration too! ;) ) I will find it out: I want to restore it to a freshly installed Raspbian, so i do not have to add again all my personal features. Just a question: is it normal that backing up the backup stops at 99% calculating the chec...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

I repeated the backup-procedure and again after 6945 MB of 9514MB the same error happened: Backed up with errors.
I checked the log and there is the same error like before, when i couldn't backup at all.
It says 'disk full' - although it was an empty 32GB card.
The log is attached.
