Re: Mediacenter + Emuladores + Juegos PC Steam para Raspberr

Just have a question about Kodi.

I am using a PI2 and I have noticed Kodi is running at 100% cpu and the temperature rises to 140F+. Is this normal?

Re: HEAT - P3 vs P2(Overclocked)

I am using the 8GB Sandisk Ultra that comes with pi starter packs. I have a Kingston sd card too, and its roughly the same speed.

Re: HEAT - P3 vs P2(Overclocked)

Not too sure about the codecs tbh but video playback is fine. Its interface really. Slow moving off items or going back up directories. Installing add-ons from zip and respositories is the worse though.

HEAT - P3 vs P2(Overclocked)

Hi All. I currently have a Pi2 (standard clock) running retropie. When using Kodi(Jarvis), it is slow and my Pi's ACT led is going bonkers. I am putting it down to a lack of process power so am debating one of two things 1. Overclock my PI2 2. Buy a PI3 Despite getting the speed I may require, I am ...

Hi All, Ive been looking around for casing/enclosures that are big enough to fit a pi along with other gear in (wires, breadboard, hdd etc.) but haven't had much luck.

So would a TalkTalk modem/router be sufficent enough to act as an injector?

Salvaging Sky box for to use with Pi

Hi Guys,

I about to rip out everything from an old Sky box to use the box to host my pi, hdd and other bits and pieces. I was just curious if anyone has any luck salvaging the sky parts to be used with the PI. In particular, the DvB part (for satelite tv)

Cheers.

Re: Power and HDD leds for PI2

Brilliant. I think thats on the lines.

So essentially I would need 2 LEDs with reisitors and add the following lines to my boot.config
dtparam=act_led_gpio=nn
dtparam=pwr_led_gpio=nn

(nn representing BCM number)

The mapping is correct as it was working for some games. Curious to know why it wont work with other games despite the work fine directly on pc. This most likely a fault with moonlight i presume.
