Re: When will Raspberry Foundation admit that the Pi destroys your SD cards?

Okay, I had a few moments to relax, and allow me to apologize first. I was quite pissed off, as an important component of my home automation system broke down (it was on the corrupted sd-card that was in my Pi 3). I'm going to start with a fresh batch of high-quality sd-cards (and usb on the Pi 3), ...

Re: When will Raspberry Foundation admit that the Pi destroys your SD cards?

I always do a clean shutdown, that's not the issue. I always use qualified psu's. Sometimes corruption occured while my pi was running in the middle of the day, suddenly filesystem corruption everywhere, and even e2fsck wouldn't be able to fix it. I think I went through 4 or 5 corrupted sd cards in ...

When will Raspberry Foundation admit that the Pi destroys your SD cards?

After ending up yet again with a corrupt sd-card, my patience is officially over. I want the Raspberry Foundation to admit their boards destroy sd cards, and I expect them to come up with a solution. 1. It's not a PSU issue. I'm using a 5V -2.5A psu that came with an official kit. 2. It's not a qual...

Re: Setting hotspot to auto login

There is no easy way to do this, I'm afraid. What you can try: - Inspect the HTML of the login-form and figure out the names of the HTML input fields. - use the "curl" tool, to do a HTTP POST with the correct values, based on the info you've got from the previous - once you get it working, add it to...

Telelens on camera module

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to mount a telelens on the raspberry pi camera. What steps would be involved? I assume I need to remove the current lens to expose the sensor, but where do I go from there? Can I just buy a CMOS lens with telezoom support? If so, which brands make them, or where ...

Hi, I have a raspberry A+ with camera module, and I'm looking for a case. However, I can't find a single one that matches my taste.

Re: interface loses IP address after starting OpenVPN connec

I figured it out eventually...

The problem was that I set up the wifi with the wifi assistant provided in Raspian. It configures the wifi with the wpa-roam option, which caused the issue.

Once I configured my wifi and dhcp options directly in /etc/network/interfaces, everything worked fine.

Re: CCTV / Webcam Camera

You should check which codecs your webcam supports. Most webcams can fall back M-JPEG, which should be easy to decode (even on a Pi).

If you need to do mpg2 or mp4 decoding, it might get trickier.

Re: random wireless lockups with rt73 driver

Did another test with a powered hub. The problem seems to get even worse this way, and I already lose connection after a few minutes.

Problem seems to occur as soon as I start the streaming (lots of network I/O). Can this be related to the various USB issues users have been reporting?

Re: random wireless lockups with rt73 driver

One important addemdum:

I've connected the dongle directly to the pi. Is this a good thing to do? Or should I add a powered hub? I've also added an usb webcam to the other port. I'm streaming the webcam over the wifi dongle.
