Re: OpenELEC vs Raspbmc?

Very wierd indeed. Even with my entry level PVR from my previous post, the Pi is much, much faster - stable - with streaming over our (complex, multiple routers) " home" network. I get the same results as Alex, just a few seconds for the pi, sometimes a little bit more for the Dane-Elec. Try changin...

And the associated drivers and software prove videocapture is now standard in Raspbian.

Re: OpenELEC vs Raspbmc?

Yes, you must definitely do something wrong. Actually there is not much speed difference between the XBMC derived flavors in the sense that it infuences usability. (I am not saying there isn't) They all start even very large movies within 5 seconds. Compared to my dedicated Dane-Elec SO Speaky PVR m...

That would be " Car recognition" ? You should be able to figure out how to do that with the camera and the Pi based on topics on the forum. No need for GPIO. ;)

Als het alleen om dit specifieke apparaat gaat zou je Behringer een mailtje kunnen sturen of ze je de data sheet van het protocol willen geven.

Re: kitting out a classroom

If you really want 30+ RPi's connected on the cheap, read something about grid computing. Speed should be satisfactory in the classroom and a single hub can connect to the outside world. My solution would be ( and is ) to use connections (human) and try to convince them to give their old 100Mb switc...

Re: Can't turn on swap after installing Raspbian with berryb

The latest Raspbians do not use a swap partition, but a swap file as you are trying to use. Just ignore it. The swap is OK by default. You will get an IO error because the file already exists and the swapfile is protected and governed by the system. The problem is that there is so much information t...

Re: C# mono - anyone get visual studio plugin to work

You are specifically referring to synchronisation. Well, that's pure wintel. The current synchronisation primitives on Windows are heavily based on processor instructions built into the X86 family at least in part on the request of Microsoft. But you can indeed implement at least the API on a differ...

You should edit your reply to me a little, because now it looks that I made certain statements ;) This is a common statement: that Windows is bound to x86.

Re: C# mono - anyone get visual studio plugin to work

WinCE targets at least ARMV4 so that is at least a more viable option. Also WinCE is an almost exact subset of the Windows API. But as you state, and many have done so on this forum in different threads, you can not and never will be able to run windows X86 binaries on any current ARM processor nati...

Re: C# mono - anyone get visual studio plugin to work

You mean a kind of ReactOS CE? Because WinCE is the closest Microsoft itself came to porting Windows to ARM. In theory that is possible. Given the timelines for ReactOS itself, I would not be too optimistic. ReactOS itself is just like Windows a X86 family lock-in OS. Mainly because the X86 family a...

Re: NOOBS: Raspian install stuck at Resizing File System

Are you sure you set the right option(s) in the SD formatting tool?
You have to set "Format size adjustments" to "ON" otherwise resizing will fail.
If RISCOS worked, you probably set that option ;) and not in the cases for Raspbian and Arch.
See the quickstart guide.

In that case, I know what you did wrong: the default settings for the SD formatter are wrong for installing Noobs.

Actually, although the hex value 0x285a5a is correct, the easiest would be based on less or equal, so you should use 0x275959.

Re: Raspbian: omxplayer now has x11 dependency?

If you add the line as suggest it will NOT consider X as a dependency, because it is only recommended. Thats why I wrote that that line is pretty much essential. Otherwise, by default, the X libs would be listed as dependencies.
