Re: Boot from HDD and boot wait times

Hi, As LTolledo says above,several of us have found that reboot success is dependent on the type of SATA -> USB chipset used in your adapter, there were discussions here https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=229228&p=1405530#p1405530 and here https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view...

Re: Commodore PET Mini

Hi,

Fantastic !! I spend HOURS typing gauge measurement details into one of them many moons ago, next to it was an original Macintosh, I wasn't allowed on that though :)

I will have a look if it fits on our printer I will give it a go.

Re: Advice on using Pi as TVHeadend headless backend.

Hi, I have it running headless and from what I have seen it does not overly hammer the SD card, the info for the EPG guide is not huge anyway, I suppose if you are going to use it for recording or time shifting then that could be a different matter, and then an HDD could be a far better choice.

Re: Raspberry pi Zero Nas speed

Hi,

I was running over Wifi, the limiting factor with the ZeroW was the CPU usage, you may not experience this if you have no encryption on your NAS.

My VPN now runs on a Pi2 over Wifi, with that I easily see 20mbps, I am now limited by WiFi and Internet speeds....

I think the issue you are seeing is that everything is essentially co...

The fan is really quite noisy, I think because it is mounted directly on the case, a little bit of paper between it and the case may help, not sure how effective it is, it do...

The culprit is likely to be the SATA -> USB adapter you are using, I have the same drive as you and it works fine.

Re: Choppy replay with TV uHat on pi zero w

Hi, I think the instructions state that for playback a Pi 3 is recommended, getting the MPEG-2 key may help for SD channels.. If you want to watch TV on the Pi itself, we recommend using a Pi 2, 3, or 3B+, as you may need more processing power for this. https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/raspberry-pi-...

Hi,

I had no issues with cold boot, only rebooting when it would hang, changing the adapter worked for me, the case I got was only 6UKP, it may not be the greatest quality but it works and that is good enough for me. Good luck !
