HDD/SSD to Pi with SATA to USB adapter

Hey all, I'm wanting to connect up an HDD or SSD to my pi using a SATA to USB adapter. I just want to know how much power they would need to run properly since they would need more power than the Pi can give through the USB ports. I've heard that they need power in the region of 5V at 2A. Is this co...

SD to Micro SD adapter

I'm thinking of upgrading from the raspberry Pi model B to the 2. Problem is, all the cards I have are regular SD cards while the 2 only takes Micro SD. What I need is an adapter to use regular SD cards in a micro SD card slot. I have found this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sintech-SDHC-SD-card-to-micro...

GPIO composite video in/out

Hey all, I've been wondering, .... that it may be able to output other types of signals such as composite video or even allow it to be input via the GPIO pins. :?: maybe even some sort of HDMI capture. I honestly have absolutely no idea if this is possible and thought that maybe some of you guys wou...

Re: BBC BASIC Raspberry Pi port. Loading from tape.

Many years back I wanted to get some BASIC programs off a BBC tape and store them as text files. I managed to achieve this by: 1. Use audio software to capture the tape sounds to a .wav file 2. Use a program (in PC BBC BASIC) to scan the file and convert the frequencies to bits and bytes 3. Use ano...

Re: BBC BASIC Raspberry Pi port. Loading from tape.

Hmm... well, I can now get the programs onto a computer but, does anybody know of a way to trasfer this data to the pi (without taking out the SD card, copying the files over and rebooting). To be honest, I've never actually used any of those retro computers with tape recorders (I'm only 16! give me...

Re: BBC BASIC Raspberry Pi port. Loading from tape.

Ah well. I do have the OS on an 8GB SD card (The pi wouln't read my 16MB one) so I'll just have to save them on there.

BBC BASIC Raspberry Pi port. Loading from tape.

Not long ago, I found an official port of BBC BASIC for the Pi (not running in a program but rather it's own operating system) which can be found here http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CAoQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.raspberrypi.org%2Fcelebrating-50-years-of-basic%2F&ei=rrToU8yJJI...

Re: [Release] bare metal RaspberryPi BASIC

very nice from what I have seen but I do have 1 small problem, my USB keyboard doesn't work with it. I'm using a 'microsoft wired keyboard 600' if that changes anything.

Oh :? Well, the battery that I'm considering using is an external mobile phone charger so I think that the voltage should stay consistent as the battery discharges.

Re: 5v - 12v step up for portable Pi

I recently received the monitor in the mail! After a bit of testing using a variable power supply, I have discovered that this particular monitor will run off of as little as 4.6v without modification! Although, decreasing the voltage used increases the current needed so it will use 330 - 340mA (the...

I'm fairly sure pirate radio is illegal. Hence 'pirate' radio. If you mean broadcasting it over the internet, that's fine.

Re: 5v - 12v step up for portable Pi

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, from what I have seen, 12v batteries (NOT just car batteries) are usually quite large, less portable, much more expensive and have less mAh's than other, lower voltage, batteries. I have done some quick research and have found that, even with a 5v -> 12v step-up,...

When I got my raspberry pi last Christmas, all I could think about is how I could turn this into a handheld (or very portable at least) gaming console using the RetroPie OS, also, since I have to do my research project at school this year, I thought that this is the perfect opportunity!

retroPie not responding after 1 button press

after using retroPie a few times earlier, it just decided to not respond to anything after just one button press. I have tried restarting the Pi many times and even re-imaging the SD card with retroPie. I have used it before with no problems so this is really unusual. It did start doing this after I...
