Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

first of all, huge thanks for Kodi, it finally works on my pi4. Only issue I have: When in dual monitor mode (2x VGA monitor via micro HDMI adapter -> VGA) the HDMI2 goes blank (even though this feature is disabled in Kodi). Also, when I have two screens with different resolutions they kind of fallb...

Re: Raspberry temperature

With limited load in a semi-open 3b+ case I get to 45°C with active cooling (fan blowing into the case through the side).

Under heavy load it goes up to 51° C.

No load = 35°C.

No load, no fan = 41°C, roughly.


It is a 4b, 4GB

Re: RPi 4 no video

I would use the other HDMI connector, just as a test.
Then I would use another SD card.

Are you using any video adapters? Any cables or connectors from ebay, aliexpress, etc?

I have two micro HDMI adapter cables, one is fine, the other does funny stuff on the screen.

Re: Where can I get replacement capacitors for my Raspberry Pi 3 B?

Since your Pi doesn't work anyway, I'd try to find the right caps, buy them and reflow them. capacitors are cheap, you can get them anywhere. If you don't have a reflow station (hot air), then I would try a very fine soldering iron. 45-60W should be enough Are there any other hardware issues, other ...

Re: Raspberry pi 4 external usb3 ssd drive

That should work fine then. I should've mentioned it: my 4b has 4GB of RAM. It is now my main machine and travels with me wherever I go! It even has already been to the US and came back to Europe. way easier than carrying a Macbook! And a Pi is never considered an electronic device at the airport :D

Re: Raspberry pi 4 external usb3 ssd drive

While I can not guarantee that it will work for you, it works for me! I have a 2.4A Apple charger via a micro-USB to Type C connector, standard USB cable. 1x Samsung SSD 120GB via a very cheap/old adapter on USB3 and I also have Logitech wireless adapter. it all works without any additional power re...

Re: New Raspberry Pi Project

Great project! I would look at the existing solutions and learn how they have done it. Focus on - what feature sets do you want? - will this be a custom, unique project or something you want to share? - What will you improve/change compared to the other car pis? ideas: https://i-carus.com/ https://w...

Re: Stream Raspberry Camera

We use Motion on our Raspberry Pi zeros and the fps was a bit low (recording is not a problem). It improved with a 3b but it wasn't 30fps.

So I would try something else first (like the link mentioned above).

Re: Raspberry PI 4 not shipped with accessories

I would contact Canakit directly and ask what you should do.
From what I have heard, people say good things about them. but shipping mistakes can happen everywhere.

Re: Uses for Raspberry Pi Zero/Zero W?

We use our W's for: - Kodi (more than enough to run 720P/1080P) - Surveillance camera in the garden or shed - ADSB/Flightaware tracker on the roof of the house (extremely useful not having to run an ethernet cable up there!) - fall-back Pi-Hole (the big one is wired, this one is a backup just in cas...
