Halloween Magic Mirror

Hello all, Another one of those "I'm sure it's not that difficult but cant find how". If anyone has seen Shrek the taking mirror then I want to recreate one of those with my PI. The hardware etc all easy to do . The hard part and the thing I've spent hours at the library (google) researchi...

Re: LIRC Brute force attack

Hello Neilgl, I've just had another search and cant find it... Are you saying there is a conf file out there for the LG BD370 ? or details of how I can make a conf file for it ? I can find other LG BD's but not this one or the others that I believe are compatible. Would you have a link to the stuff ...

Re: LIRC Brute force attack

@Neilgl You could do a web server on the esp8266 and eliminate the PI altogether https://www.teachmemicro.com/simple-nodemcu-web-server/ I agree with sparkie in that I’ve been fiddling with RPIs for a good few years (nearly ten on this forum :-0) and I’ve only had one SD card fail in service and tha...

Re: LIRC Brute force attack

Thanks for the answers… Ah another interesting thing to get over as well then if the latest OS doesn't support it anyway. If I looked at Arduino options (I do like the little NodeMCU things based on the esp8266) doing an IR recorder should be fairly easy but without a remote in the first place I’d s...

Re: LIRC Brute force attack

Ah, I registered and signed in and a download button then appeared. I've downloaded both files and the rmdu file looks like it may have all the details I need in it. Would you have any advice on how to convert that file to something LIRC would understand? I guess it may be a simple mapping procedure...

Re: LIRC Brute force attack

Hello PIDD,
Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately the links to the BD390 or BD370 files don't work they take you to a page but there is no download link on it..
Do you know if one of these files will have enough information in to be able to make a conf file for ILRC ?

LIRC Brute force attack

Hello all, I have an LG bd370 blue ray player and lost the remote some years back. I have been severely ignoring my RPI building stuff lately so thought this would be a handy excuse to get familiar with a making an RPI remote using the LIRC library. This would be a pretty short simple project if the...

Re: Shutter Glasses

Thanks for the reply, I'm still "working" on this project but in my case I would need a bluetooth 3D Shutter Glass instead of a wired one. I'm not exactly sure what kind of Bluetooth 3D Shutter Glass would be Ideal for this Project since most the ones I found online of them only work with...

Re: Shutter Glasses

I didn't intend to leave it wired and would have gone back to some sort of Bluetooth or IR link. However to get it working and prove the concept having it wired takes out a load of variables and things that can go wrong. My advice would be to set it up wired then look at remoting it. My other Issue ...

Re: Shutter Glasses

They were the cheapest active glasses I could find on eBay. ie they have to have some electronics in and not just passive bits of plastic. Some use infrared to sync with the TV, some Bluetooth etc. I tried for a bit to find the transmitter end somewhere and reveres engineer it but to no avail. In th...

Re: Live Hologram Display

Yep just a flat piece of glass, perspex etc. With something black behind and either side it will still look the part from the front. The image will be a little distorted depending on what angle you put the glass at. But I've found this may or may not be a problem depending on what you are displaying...

I guess you mean the Hologram effects shown on YouTube and the like made from a bit of plastic cut and stuck together like an truncated , inverted pyramid and placed on a screen? If so then I agree they do look great and I have made a couple myself. As for you application, do you need to to see the ...

Re: Recorder Based Pipe Organ

Thanks for the input. You are totally correct in your assessement. After posting I stumbled accross a python module called MIDO this decodes MIDI files (and does a lot of other things). Now I've seen inside the file I think it may be easier than I orignially thought. As you said the file contains a ...

I like the look of that.
An RPI with a big monitor and some extra functionality like relative positions etc would finish it off .. Oh and maybe a box or tow but then half my stuff never actually makes it in to a proper housing...

Re: Read Pixel colour from screen.

So could I feed it jpegs with a C script ?
So I'd feed it jpeg 1 then switch my GPIO on then feed it Jpeg 2 then GPIO off etc ?
