Re: Control GIPO from an External IIS webserver

Easiest way I can think of would be to set up a web server on the Pi too, and have a page that simply responds to web requests from the other one using GET and/or POST data. eg, you have a link/button on the first page that will have a link like http://RaspberryPi/control.php?GPIO1=1 to turn on GPIO-1

Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current (FIXED - New Hardware Release)

The HAT I received today (which is the new revision) is so far working well. Definitely better than it did before. Even my RF Receiver for my wireless keyboard would kill the USB after a couple of seconds of use and it would show constant voltage warnings with the first version. Nothing like that so...

Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current

What communication would you like? A blog post. Probably some tweets. Plus an update to the original PoE hat launch blog pointing to the new blog post. We've told everyone there is a problem In a forum thread, if they happen to find it. If the TV hat had been launched with a comment in the forums t...

About 7000 brand new PoE Hats arrived and are now on the way to resellers.

That's really great. Looking forward to seeing them 'in the wild' and getting a new one :D

Like I said, it's a weird one, but we do have a fix and are working on getting it out there asap.
Is there any point holding on to what I have now? Or should I just be returning it?

Re: PoE HAT - USB Ports not working - over-current

Ok, so, I'm a little annoyed as well. I was able to order this product on the 19th Sept, I had not thought to do any google searches to find out if there are any problems. In between ordering (and shipping) of the HAT and it arriving i mentioned it on a forum thread i am a part of, a few people ther...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Perhaps, but since I wrote it, that's the way it was intended to be interpreted. :) Haha, fair enough. Like I said, we're pedantic re:licencing, so I just wanted to make sure :) Nope. That goes into Screenly Pro territory. ok, good to know that it is available if we want to go that way :) Is there ...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Am currently investigating using Screenly OSE at my work, a School (yrs 1-12). The device will (most likely) not be given access to the internet on the VLAN it will be put on. What will happen re:date/time. Is there an option to set it manually if we have to? or can we somehow tell it to use our ow...

Read Halt State off GPIO?

Is there anywhere that you can read the difference between the Pi being on and in a Halt state? thinking about putting one in the car with a small battery pack, the Pi will run off the ACC power normally, when the car is turned off that is disconnected and the Pi runs off the battery, when that happ...

Re: Use Pi to control device using serial connection

thanks for the reply, i don't understand a great deal of this but am slowly learning. so, to bit-bash i don't use the SPI pins, just the normal outputs and control them manually? i found this pythan code, would this not do what i want?

Re: Use Pi to control device using serial connection

Ok, while this topic was being approved worked out a few things. i believe i need to use SPI0 MOSI and SPI0_SCLK so, question is this smart enough to automatically use the SCLK when i send data out over MOSI? In my BASIC code i need to switch the CLK to low or high depending on the bit im sending is...

Use Pi to control device using serial connection

Ok, i have one of these http://www.4dsystems.com.au/prod.php?id=73 I am making a control board using a Picaxe micro processor. I was wondering if it was possible to use the Pi to control the device , I would use a web server to control it instead of manual push buttons on the picaxe. This is the dat...
