hdmi_safe=1 not as documented?

According to: http://elinux.org/RPiconfig hdmi_safe Use "safe mode" settings to try to boot with maximum hdmi compatibility. This is the same as the combination of: hdmi_force_hotplug=1, config_hdmi_boost=4, hdmi_group=2, hdmi_mode=4, disable_overscan=0 So if I've read that right:: hdmi_safe=1 Shoul...

New Debian download info please?

I see on the downloads page there is now 2013-02-09-wheezy-raspbian.zip
Any chance of having a user (i.e. not too technical) note of the changes over the previous version?

Re: How much sales do you think will raspi make?

15th January 2012 I said in this thread: "My prediction is 500,000 by the end of the year!"
Farnell have said they have shipped 500,000 and the indications are RS have shipped a bit less my guess is 350,00.
So I think I made the closest prediction. Do I win a prize? :lol:

Re: Is anybody using an unpowered hdmi>vga converter?

We have tested four HDMI to VGA adaptors. Unpowered adaptors will only work up to about 800x600
Powered adaptors will do 1920x1080.

If we add a powered 'repeater' then the Unpowered adaptors will do 1920x1080. The problem is 'powered repeaters' cost more than the Unpowered adaptor

I have a DS1338-33 RTC clock that works on August's Wheesy download by following bootc's instructions. I've now upgraded to 2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian 3.2.27+ but during booting it says: "Setting fake hwclock: loading system time" and time is set to last shutdowns time. Also during shutdown I see th...

Re: Rev2 boards are here!

I don't think it safe to assume if you order from Farnell now that you will get a Rev2 board. It is quite possible that further shipments of Rev1 may be in transit from the far east to Farnell.
