Re: Disable Raspberry PI hdmi switch automatically after tv power on

why not just switch off the HDMI of the RPi?

Code: Select all

vcgencmd display_power 0
or

Code: Select all

tvservice -o

Re: Lirc Setup on Stretch

I don't know your particular configuration. With Debian there comes a helper script to ease the migration lirc 0.9.0 -> lirc 0.9.4.

Did you try that already?

Re: [LIRC] irsend runs into timeout sporadically

sounds great, thanks for the hint. My first aid procedure now was to revert all my LIRC RPis back to jessie. To keep up the good WAF :-)
So I gained some time to experiment with solutions not dealing with LIRC.

Rest in Peace LIRC.

Re: WiFi adapter question.

My system is Raspbian/ stretch based. You must have installed the package 'firmware-misc-nonfree'. I don't know if that is the case for the standard Raspbian image. From that package the adapter requires firmware file: '/lib/firmware/rt2870.bin'. It's plug and play. No driver compilation needed. You...

simply install Termux on your smartphone. This provides an (almost) full fledged apt environment with all your beloved linux utilities (e.g. 'rsync', 'scp') all included. To install 'rsync' on your smartphone is as simple as typing 'apt install rsync'.

Re: How do you force a wifi interface to be a certain wlanX?

if a device is found that is not explicitly specified by any rule it defaults to '0'. If after this a device is found to which you explicitly assigned '0' there is a conflict ending up with a device being named as 'renameX'.
