Re: PiZero Roadmap

I really don't see the purpose in keeping this secret. The device is going to production. Its apparent that the decision is final, so why not tell us what it is? I hope the foundation is not doing this just for some cheesy marketing reason. I thought they were above such tactics.

Re: Wifi Direct Enabled

Well I have WiFi Direct working great to send a live video stream from the RasPi to my Android Nexus-7 (with almost no lag in the video). I am doing this by SSHing into the RasPi via the Ethernet, then running P2P_UI to set up the WiFi for the direct connection. However I want to be able to establis...

Re: Alsa problem. Please help

I saw that issue a long time ago.. trying to remember. I think it had something to do with forcing a rate the sound card didn’t like, or using multiple virtual devices… But lets try to simplify and isolate the issue. I don’t think you need to set the ALSADEV variable so skip that for now. (Let us kn...

Ok, I will try these later today. Thanks a lot! So from what I understood, you are also encountering problems with recording on usb and playing through main card at the same time.

Re: Alsa problem. Please help

I would not say that I have any ideas exactly.. more like theories. I think that maybe the hardware is just not up to doing what you want it to do. I can play back on the onboard audio and record from the USB mic simultaneously but only for a few seconds before it becomes totally garbled. I expect t...

Its not needed for testing here.. just hit control-c when you want to stop recording) When you desc...

Re: Alsa problem. Please help

I suggest you use arecord -D plughw:1,0 test.wav to specify the capture device and avoid having to set parms. hw:1,0 should be your first USB sound device (2ed total sound device) and adding plug to it helps by handling some of the details. (Also note the Capital -D) As for the device busy error, it...

Re: Any one what to make a security system with Raspberry?

That is a thought that came to my mind also and I think it is a grand idea! For myself, I have a perfectly adequate alarm system already installed here, except that it was put in when radio pagers were in use. It can dial out and send pager tones but that does me no good now days. I would love to ad...

Re: Internet Radio STATION

Based on the above blog I set up a RasPi to take audio from a scanner radio and feed it to radioreference.com using darkice. This may be similar and part of what you want to do, so the guide I prepared may be a good supplement to what ghans' has linked to. It is at: https://sites.google.com/site/gly...

When you say you share the router, do you mean that you don't have control over it (it belongs to someone else?). If you do have control over it then it should be a simple matter to config it to assign a static IP to the pi based on its MAC address (and outside the DHCP range as mentioned above). Yo...
