Re: Headless Media Server for Large Music Collections

Have look at my standalone LMS server - Squeezelite setup: http://www.gerrelt.nl/RaspberryPi/wordpress/tutorial-stand-alone-squeezebox-server-and-player-for-bbq/ I'll check that out! I ended up using a USB2GO cable with my Android phone and a 64 gig usb stick to cart my music around, but I'll check...

Headless Media Server for Large Music Collections

I've been researching headless media servers that I can control with an Android app, largely for use in my car but also capable of just bringing into the house and using there as well. I came up with a MiniDLNA / BubbleUPnP option, but given I'm just south of 60 gigs of mp3s it takes north of 2 minu...

I believe that you can change the default location of where your Wordpress blog is located, from the default of the root of your website.

Depends on how many, and which, lights are lit up after the Pi is completely restarted.

Re: What do you think about the Ch-ch-ch changes?

One of the areas where many discussion forums fail is dilution of the content due to far too many sub forums. Thankfully much of that has been resolved here, which should make information finding and sharing much easier.

Nicely done!

Re: My Raspberry Pi can`t start - ext4 error

Sounds like an install went horribly awry there somewhere. You'd need a linux-based OS running to retrieve the data from the SD card, which you can do with a bootable CD like Knoppix or similar.

Re: Power Usage and extra USB hubs?

That should be sufficient of a power supply, as long as it is a quality supply. As far as the USB hubs, some folks just want more plugged into their Pi. A USB wifi dongle and a USB stick for improved Pi performance takes up both slots, but what if you want to also plug in an external hard drive for ...

Re: USB BluRay

AFAIK Linux doesn't yet support the legal playback of Blu-Ray, and there seems to be some debate as to whether the Raspberry Pi has the horsepower to handle a full Blu-Ray stream anyway.

Re: Connect Pi to internet using ethernet to pc, then wirele

For sharing like that you need to make sure that whichever operating system that you have on the laptop supports Internet Connection Sharing. If it does, then Google how to set that up. You will also need what's called a crossover cable, which looks just like a regular Ethernet cable but it's wired ...

Re: I never knew that people were flipping Pi camera's that

Actually, it more likely just means they are out of stock. On ebay you want to keep the listing active for 28 days or more (so google search etc picks it up) even when you are out of stock, one way to do that is to temporarily increase the price way above normal e.g. $999 - you won't sell any, but ...
