Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 4.xx.xx+

I just got this adapter. My Pi Zero W is on version is 5.10.46+ #1430 is it possible to use the 5.10.44-1429 drivers? If not, any ideas when the updated package will be released?

Connec to to Go Pro Live Preview Headless

Hey all, I'm working on a project where I can live stream my bike rides with a ton of information using a GoPro Hero 8. I did a test yesterday and it half worked. Some of my calculations need checking I think for distance, but the biggest issue I had was the GoPro would just randomly stop sending da...

Re: How to setup any version of Minecraft on Pi4

I just tested it out, and no you cannot log into the Microsoft account on the pi yet. Hopefully Microsoft gets around to porting the new version of their launcher to Linux so we can get a pi version sometime soon. :(

Re: Copy from USB back to SD card

I think I've pinpointed my issue, I was never booting off the usb drive in the first place! I (thought) I had everything configured, but during one of my many reformats I did while testing I must have failed to actually use the usb drive and have been using the SD card this whole time :lol:

Re: Pi 4 outdoor enclosure

To supply 3 amps for 10 hours your battery must be at least 30Ah (or 300,000mAh) You sure about that math there? ;) 30 Ah to mAh would be 30 * 1000 or 30,000. I do believe you've added an extra zero onto your math. The power bank I purchased *claims* to do 36,000 mAh, but the last one I bought (and...

Re: Pi 4 outdoor enclosure

nice! Yeah, it will connect through my cell acting as a hot spot. I've picked out a battery bank that should give me 10 hours when pulling 3 Amps (assuming it's being honest about its capacity), but it's also solar, so if it's as sunny as I expect I might get 300 mAH back each hour.

Re: Pi 4 Enable UART 2 and use Bluetooth?

Oh okay, so I would do the

Code: Select all

enable_uart=1 
to do enable serial communication, then if I wanted to use UART3 I would add a line saying

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=uart3, off
which would use GPIO4 to as RX and GPIO5 as TX (or pin7 and pin29 respectively)

Good to know! Does enable_uart=1 enable all the serial ports on the pi or just the minicom? If it enables all of them how would I specifically access UART 3 or 4 etc?

Re: Figuring out resistor for 7 segment display

That sounds straightforward enough. Two LEDs in series per segment. For the normal calculations the LED forward current would be 0.015A and the LED forward voltage would be 3.4V. For a 5V supply that gives (5 - 3.4) / 0.015 = 106 Ohms. Something like a 110 or 120 Ohm resistor for each segment shoul...
