Re: Need help with IDE and USB connections

You won't be able to use the IDE to USB adaptor board in the way you are describing. It can only provide an IDE connection from a USB port, it can not handle this configuration. Your best option would be to remove the circuit board from the case and use the premade holes to thread cables through or ...

Re: oneninedesign B+ case

Bought this case in black and it's become my favourite Pi case. My only complaint would be that in order to fit the camera to the top cover, the camera cable has to be twisted 180 degrees and it is extremely awkward. A very well made case aside from that minor problem.

Re: Ford Sync USB Updating

I've used a cheap USB switch to do exactly this in my car, seems to work fine.
It's really just a nice way to do your option 2.

If you figure out a way to do option 1 I'd be pretty interested.

Not my device, but the same thing

Re: Media Center enclosure with RaspBerryPi?

If you're looking for a 'large' case, you might be best off putting all your components into a Mini-ITX case. Should have plenty of space for hard drives and they generally have a few USB ports on the case (some wiring/adapters needed) I'm using an Antec ISK110 VESA , which has the added ability to ...

Re: PiFan - Fan on a case mod

Sorry, but that is totally wrong. Unless you are supplying power via the GPIO pins or back-powering via USB, and therefore bypassing the input polyfuse F3, you will "blow" that polyfuse if you try to take more than about 250mA total from the USB ports. You are correct, the F3 input polyfuse does su...

Re: PiFan - Fan on a case mod

290mA is well within the USB spec of 500mA. Just because a spec claims an Amperage does not mean every device will support that. USB 2.0 Spec is 500mA and 3.0 is I believe 900mA, however the Rev1.0 Pi did not support current output that high, with a maximum output current of around 100mA across bot...

Re: In car OBD II scan gauge

Set a static IP on the Pi, and run an Ethernet cable straight from your laptop to the Pi. You may need to set a static IP on your laptop while you're using this connection. You could leave the laptop end of the cable in your glovebox, or wire it to a female port in the glovebox if you're worried abo...

Re: Pi enclosure with a hard drive

I've been looking a few m-ITX cases to see it anything would be close (don't mind a little modding) Hey jetto, if you haven't already heard of it, take a look at the Antec ISK110 VESA case, it's a very small M-ITX case that supports 2 2.5" drives and can be mounted to a screen or surface. Might not...

Re: Pi Media/Server Case incl. 4x HDD + DVD + ATX

I forgot to say that the Pi is running on the 5V standby line. So if I turn off the switch the ATX shuts down, but the Pi still has power to perform its shutdown script
Actually I just noticed that you mentioned that, my bad!

Again, fantastic work, I look forward to seeing more of it!

Re: Pi Media/Server Case incl. 4x HDD + DVD + ATX

connected to a douple-pole switch, which turns on/off Pi + ATX-power supply You'll need 2 separate switches, one for the Mausberry Switch, and one for the ATX PSU. If you turn both off at once, your SD Card may become corrupted, as the Mausberry circuit still needs power while the Pi is shutting do...

Re: RasPi Carputer

Hi There sghsmorgan For a safe shutdown and power-up switch, I'd take a look at Mausberry Circuits ( http://www.mausberrycircuits.com/ ) They make a few different kinds of power switches that allow safe shutdown and power-up on the raspberry pi. They also make a switch that can be wired directly to ...

Re: Securing the SD card

Swapping the SD card would allow alternate software, possibly malicious, to run, which would be a security risk. Swapping the HDMI or ethernet will not enable this risk. An attacker who has prepared a malicious image almost certainly has a Pi that they tested it on. They can just swap the Ethernet ...

Re: Securing the SD card

This would help prevent people from stealing sdcards but not much more (Ethernet cable is still exposed). You could lock the whole thing in a monitor/desk like Chapters does... but people still take the keys off the keyboard. so I would opt for glass touch screen and no keyboard/mouse. I didn't rea...

Simultaneous python commands?

Hello all. I have written a python script that uses the GPIO to flash some LEDs and play a sound when a switch is opened (for a proof of concept burglar alarm). The lights work and the sound plays, but unfortunately when the sound is played, no other commands are processed at the same time, leading ...
