USB soundcard "Line-in" hardware suggestions.

Greets there fellas! I'm hoping to turn my Pi into a small audio recorder. I have a screen with HDMI, USB ports and speakers, and I'm planning on using for this to keep the overall size down, so I can set it up near my electric drum kit for recording. I also want to hook it up to my PA and NAS, to p...

I wish, beyond all wishes that I was smart enough to do something like that, haha. Great idea!

<t>Yeah, that's more it; I remember my Pentium III from many, many years ago with similar specs to the Pi, shut down at around 60C; since it's a smaller device I thought it'd be worth making sure it will be alright in that kind of environment. If it doesn't like running at 45-55C for prolly half of ...

Re: Safe Running Temperature.

<t>Just a quick and dirty question here;<br/> <br/> I'm looking at setting the Pi up in my garage which gets very hot on Summer afternoons, prolly around 35C maybe up towards 45C at the worst, am I likely to need a cooling fan for it under these conditions, running 24/7? If so, will one of those lit...

Re: What was your first computer?

<t>I actually can't remember much about my first computer. It had a 5 1/4 inch drive, it was massive, heavy, had a tiny green and black screen, and a gigantic red mad-scientistesque switch on the side that simply turned it off, but looked more likely to cut power to the whole state. No idea on any t...

Re: How many here actually *care* about the goals of the project?

<t>I'm one of the people who are looking at this as a media device and/or server; however I think it's understated what the educational effect of simply using these devices may be to some people. I'm reasonably switched on, I work as a network admin, but I've never tried to work with the ARM archite...

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>Quote from abishur on November 17, 2011, 00:05<br/> I wonder if you could use a passive HDMI -> VGA cable, go over the VGA, then use a passive VGA->HDMI cable to hook it back up to HDMI.

Re: Pi Games

I'm really hoping that GemRB gets ported to ARM, the R-Pi has almost perfect hardware capabilities for it. that way, when I travel with it, I'll have plenty to do, haha.

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>I'm hoping the Raspberry Pi will save me a mint in electricity, by performing all of the "always on" functions of my laptop. Including IRC, sharing of USB devices such as external HDDs, queueing/scheduling downloads, maybe running some basic servers, and running network diagnostics. Haven't done ...
