About to order a pi, can you check my parts?

Sat Mar 30, 2013 3:24 am

Hi can you check my parts and see if they are okay for using an airplay setup? Also, do I need a powered usb hub for a keyboard and mouse? When it is all setup I won't need the hub so I don't have to worry about powering the soundcard or wifi.... I think.
Thanks!Image

Well this is coming from one new pi user to another:

I've had my RPi for about two months now:

All I needed was a simple 4-port usb hub (list of acceptable usb hubs found at: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals)

Simple mouse (wireless)
and I use a wired keyboard.


To power the pi I have an android charger (5V at 1Amp) and an HDMI cable with an 8-gig SD card.


From the looks of it, you're pretty prepared, buddy!

Add a power supply, and you are all set.

Just a tip about those usb soundcards, make sure the speaker cable isnt heating up, those things have crap voltage regulation
