Re: The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W Thread

Is there a quick comparison chart of the tech specs of Zero 1 compared to Zero 2 somewhere?

(Sorry if it's easy to find, I did have a quick look!)

This mouse isn't technically Bluetooth, it's "2.4 GHz with USB Unifying Receiver". So you don't need or use Bluetooth on the computer using it. ---- Edit: snap! ...and if the keyboard works, it sounds like the mouse's battery may be suspect? In fact, do the keyboard and mouse each have the...

Hi. Assuming it's this part, that you are referring to: PiDAC.JPG ...then it's simply a mechanical support for inserting a self-tapping screw (or nut and bolt) through an additional hole in the front panel, between and above the two RCA/phono sockets - to give extra physical support, and reduce the ...

Re: RPi3 Power Woes

Is the voltage output of your PSU adjustable? Can you measure the voltage actually on the Pi (GPIO pins) and NOT the PSU output?
Try increasing it to 5.1V?

Re: easiest way to find pins on the GPIO header without counting?

Glad the photo is visible now. My mod works on a Pi Zero H as well, of course. I agree it's covered by a complete 40-way connector, or a HAT, but then you don't need to count pins anymore after that's been connected - hopefully correctly! My mod is useful for adding individual single Dupont connecto...

Re: easiest way to find pins on the GPIO header without counting?

I put some Tippex/Snopake in three locations on the black plastic of the GPIO header between each block of ten pins, and another blob on the PCB near pin 1. Helps me count pins more easily, as you only have to count within each block of ten i.e. 01-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40. pi_4x10_pins_copy3.jpg The...

Excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean by "stereo width" (such that 1796 and 1920 are meaningful values) ?

I would strongly recommend spending your money on a cheap, used TV (HD, or HD-ready, with HDMI-in) perhaps from a charity shop! - rather than the small 5" monitor you specified. It will give you a MUCH better workspace - a full-sized, rather than miniature, desktop, and it will have a case/stan...

Maybe it was down to using USB 2 (slow) or USB 3 (fast) interfaces?

Re: how much can i do, i am interested in using it for are pihole, VPN, NAS, kod

If you don't have, or can't afford, a separate Pi for each project, then it might be a good idea to get a separate uSD card for each project, and keep one card for each project. As you probably know, the complete OS and all your software, settings, apps, data, etc are contained on ONE card, and so p...

Re: Shutdown button problems

Does it work if you disconnect your own button, and CAREFULLY use a single female-to-female dupont cable to briefly short GPIO physical pins 5+6 together?
