Re: Zero W with Camera v2.1 - "Off Air" image

Hah - Sorry it's been a while since I've seen a TV with no signal - not sure how to describe it

The Camera does not work with any other board, cable or image either
The current board works fine with same Raspbian image and cable with different camera.

Asking for an exchange.

In order to ease the path for future readers. I thought I should clear up some misinformation from previous posts. ..... 2. There is no need to connect with a Bluetooth speaker in bluetoothctl. BlueALSA will handle the connection. You do need to be paired and trusted with the speaker. Sudo is never...

- Nextcloud Pi works
- SCP on local network is also faster

By any chance do you have a PoE Hat you can test your SSD boot with? Haven't found anyone to confirm this combo works. I've not been able to get it past rainbow screen

Hi,

I've installed Raspberry Pi OS 64 bit (beta) on my Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB),
and tested Raspberry Pi camera with it,
but it is not working as expected.
Can you or anyone else confirm that raspistill and raspivid are working in current 64 bit build?

The org's website just updated the PoE page and added the Product Brief and mechanical drawings

Re: ETA for Official POE Hat for 3B+

Thanks for the reply. I'll check into that.

So you're saying that this option would require neither a PoE hat nor a switch?

I love DIY. Most pi people do. As long as someone has done the steps before I can usually cobble together pieces
