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....

Regards,

Re: Raspberry pi Zero Nas speed

Hi, I cant comment on NAS speed, however I was using a ZeroW to run a VPN, the speeds weren't great, things did improve if I over-clocked the heck out of it, even then I don't think I hit 10Mbit, they were better than 2-3 though.. I think the issue you are seeing is that everything is essentially co...

Re: Raspbian Lite: Please have SSH enabled by default

Hi, It was deemed a security risk, I can totally see why it was done with the distro having a default user and password. Have a look here and you will see you can still setup headless, with a minimal amount of extra messing about... https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/he...

Re: retroflag NESpi

Hi, No room in the case at all really it's quite cramped. I have got a Kingston 2.5" 120GB SSD in a external USB caddy, the drives are about 20UKP and you can get a caddy for about 5UKP, the NES case is about the same size at the caddy, so I just sit the case onto of the caddy, looks quite smart.. h...

Hi, The case has two modes, for safe shutdown you need to install a little bit of code, it's fairly simple and easy to adapt. 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...

Re: Rpi3 B SSD boots but won't reboot....?

Hi,

The same discussion as been taking place here viewtopic.php?f=29&t=229228

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: Pi Hut 3D Xmas Tree, and many GPIO questions

Hi, I've just ordered one of these, it's arriving maybe tomorrow. Having read the docs, on your daughters setup, you didn't set a program to run at boot did you ?

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-...

Re: Unable to Boot RPI 3B from SSD disk

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 !

Re: Unable to Boot RPI 3B from SSD disk

Hi, Is your pi failing to reboot or cold boot ? My own experience here is that the type of SATA --> USB controller will dictate whether reboot works or not, nothing on the OS side will help if it does not work, one thing you may want to try if you have one if attach a USB hub and connect the drive t...

Re: Kodi crashes on start (logfile)

Hi,

Is this installed from the repository?

Kodi needs lots of gfx memory, 192mb from memory, and you are forced to use the legacy OpenGL driver, the new drivers will cause issues....

My advice would be to stear clear and use one of the distros for Kodi.
