[0:18] <Sonny_Jim> Hurrupm, broken the SD card socket
[0:18] <Sonny_Jim> Fixed it by soldering on a SD-> MicroSD adapter. It's not pretty but it works

[0:21] <Tachyon`> oh heh
[0:21] <Tachyon`> I did that fix with my first MID
[0:22] <Tachyon`> it's worth mentioning pound shop card readers are an inexpensive source of SD sockets

[1:25] * sidewalk (sidewalk@shell.glassbilen.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:26] <sidewalk> so when will we get 1gb mem on the pi?
[1:26] <sidewalk> should one place an order now or wait for the 1gb?
[1:26] <flaccid> how long is a piece of string?
[1:27] <Cembo> There's gonna be a 1GB PI?
[1:27] <SpeedEvil> it is questionable if 1g memory in the form factor will be available
[1:27] <sidewalk> flaccid: you thinking of getting a string enlarger? :-)
[1:27] <SpeedEvil> I haven'tnchecjed though
[1:28] <sidewalk> Cembo: im just asking, cause i didnt know there was going to be a 512mb version, but one day... it was there :)
[1:28] <uski> troll alert
[1:29] <flaccid> more like wanker alert :)
[1:29] <uski> (and I'm waiting for the $25 quad-core 2GHz model F)
[1:29] <SpeedEvil> there are devices with comparable price, and 1g
[1:29] <SpeedEvil> less io though, and support
[1:29] <sidewalk> SpeedEvil: so ive read, hence my question
[1:30] <SpeedEvil> the issue is are ram chips available in the correct electrical and physical layout.
[1:30] * sphenxes (~sphenxes@91-119-61-250.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:30] <SpeedEvil> this may not be the case
[1:33] <sidewalk> SpeedEvil: so its an issue for the market?
[1:34] <SpeedEvil> the pi is irrelevant.
[1:34] * akk (~akkana@adsl-69-105-235-1.dsl.pltn13.pacbell.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:34] <SpeedEvil> the chips may not be made
[1:34] <SpeedEvil> even an order for 250k of them would not be worth starting up a line for
[1:35] * monkeyhybrid (~monkeyhyb@unaffiliated/monkeyhybrid) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:35] <sidewalk> okey, one can place an order for the 512mb version
[1:36] * kate_r (~kate_r@host86-177-154-209.range86-177.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:36] <kate_r> hi
[1:37] <kate_r> does anyone know how i can stream from the microphone to a client?
[1:37] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[1:43] <phire> I don't think the bcm2835 can take more than 512mb of ram
[1:43] <phire> Because of the way the address space is laid out
[1:44] * troglobyte (~troglobyt@unaffiliated/troglobyte) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:45] <phire> The top two bits control the cache, so its down to only 1gb of address space
[1:46] <phire> But then the various io peripherals also have to fit in that 1gb
[1:47] <phire> They start (with the bootrom) at 512mb
[1:47] * diggy (~diggy@ Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:47] <phire> If it did support 1gb, there would be gaps in the memory (like 4gb of ram on a 32bit pc)
[1:48] <phire> and 1gb would be the absolute max

[1:52] <sidewalk> SpeedEvil: thanks to your support ive just placed an order for another raspberry pi :-)
[1:52] <SpeedEvil> :-)
[1:54] <sidewalk> does X work alot better on the 512mb version?
[1:54] <Tachyon`> it does if you're running firefox or chrome
[1:54] <Tachyon`> int htat it doesn't swap
[1:54] <Tachyon`> for general use it's unlikely to be that noticable
[1:54] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[1:54] <Tachyon`> although I'd be interested to hear if it makes a noticable difference to raspbmc
[1:54] <Tachyon`> since that does hammer the memory as well as the cpu
[1:55] <flaccid> more ram is always good

[1:59] * cccy_RegeaneWolf is now known as cccyRegeaneWolfe
[1:59] <sidewalk> isnt it the cpu that restricts the mem to 1gb maximum?
[2:00] <sidewalk> or the ... arch?
[2:02] * lansiir (~oldtopman@unaffiliated/oldtopman) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:09] * Neutron18 (~neutron@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:10] <Neutron18> how much current can the GPIO pins of the RPI provide?

[2:29] <Tachyon`> if you make an error, you will kill the device

[2:48] <Macer> ok. i have no idea what happened with my pi
[2:48] <Macer> it was running.. froze.. now all i get is a red light
[2:48] <Macer> it doesn't even seem to try to boot :-/
[2:48] <Macer> ugh
[2:48] <Essobi> disk probably trashed itself
[2:49] <Macer> no
[2:49] <Macer> i checked the disk in another linux box
[2:49] <Macer> :-/
[2:49] <Macer> it reads fine
[2:49] <piney0> Macer, http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting
[2:49] <Essobi> Macer: both partitions?
[2:49] <Essobi> Macer: Check TP1/TP2
[2:49] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: off)
[2:49] <Macer> blah. i sure hope that isn't the problem :-/
[2:50] * akk (~akkana@adsl-69-105-235-1.dsl.pltn13.pacbell.net) has left #raspberrypi
[2:50] <Macer> i had the most awesome openelec config ever
[2:50] <Essobi> Did you check both partitions?
[2:50] <Essobi> Cause I had just my ext partition curl up and die a few times.
[2:53] <Macer> yes
[2:53] <Macer> my ext partition is fine
[2:53] <Macer> i'm going to make a raspbmc sd and see
[2:53] <Essobi> well.. only two other things it could be.
[2:54] <Macer> since according to the red power light on and nothing flashing thing
[2:54] <Macer> seems like the sd
[2:54] * flaccid (~flaccid@unaffiliated/flaccid) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[2:54] <Essobi> Did you do an update recently?
[2:54] * coin3d (~coin3d@p4FE75378.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: coin3d)
[2:54] <Macer> oh
[2:54] <Macer> i tried to do it with no cables connected
[2:54] <Macer> and just powered with the sd
[2:54] <Macer> no flashing ok light :-/
[2:55] <Essobi> I think the flashing red means it couldn't load the firmware from the fat partition.
[2:55] <Essobi> Nothing on screen? No rainbow?
[3:01] <Macer> nope
[3:01] <Macer> nothing
[3:01] <Macer> :(
[3:01] <Macer> i hope this thing didn't burn out for some reason or something
[3:01] <fuzz1981> rebuild the fat partition
[3:02] <fuzz1981> maybe try a different sd card
[3:03] <Dan39> hmm would the USB port on my laptop make a decent power supply? haha
[3:03] <Macer> oh
[3:03] <fuzz1981> no
[3:03] <Macer> guess it was the sd
[3:03] <Macer> :-/
[3:03] <Macer> damn that sucks. there goes my openelec install
[3:03] <Macer> i had it perfect
[3:04] <fuzz1981> if the ext filesystem is intact you can migrate it
[3:04] <Dan39> main usb ports on computer usually give out a decent amount of current dont they...
[3:04] <Dan39> imma try it and see :D
[3:04] <fuzz1981> apple USB3 can supply 900mA
[3:05] <Dan39> :| doesnt seem like much
[3:05] <fuzz1981> careful .. you could fry a USB port :)
[3:05] <Dan39> dam thought they put out more
[3:05] <fuzz1981> most will probably detect over current and shut down, but some might be fused
[3:06] <fuzz1981> nah, most devices don't need that much power
[3:06] <fuzz1981> i think i read 750mA somewhere for a pi under load
[3:07] <Dan39> solution: extend the AC, not the DC :P
[3:10] * loadbang (~loadbang@host109-150-21-86.range109-150.btcentralplus.com) Quit (Quit: Sleeping. zZzz...)
[3:10] <Dan39> much better voltage with shorter USB wire from power supply
[3:10] <Dan39> not going below 4.73 under full load
[3:10] <Dan39> up at 4.85 under decent load
[3:10] <Dan39> shiftplusone: looks like the wire was the problem
[3:12] * bcgrown (~dave@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[3:12] <sraue> Macer, simply put the content from 3rdparty/bootloader and target/ from the build from http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/ to the fat partition and the rename KERNEL to kernel.img
[3:12] <fuzz1981> still a bit low but should be fine
[3:13] <sraue> maybe backup and later restore your old config.txt from there
[3:13] <Macer> sraue: i will try that later. i just installed raspbmc on another sd to see if it was the SD
[3:14] <Macer> wonder what happened
[3:14] <Macer> odd
[3:14] <Macer> it was working fine for like.. weeks :)
[3:14] <Macer> could be an actual bad sd
[3:14] <Dan39> fuzz1981: yea i think i still need a better wire
[3:14] <Dan39> now im using wire that came with my cell phone :P
[3:14] <Dan39> its shorted at least, but probably not heavier guage

[3:38] * Goleif (Goleif@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:39] <Goleif> Hi! I'm trying to add an NFS source as a video source in XBMC. But the RPi just freezes for ~10 seconds and then absolutely nothing happens. No folders shown or anything. Anyone who has experienced the same thing and fixed it?
[3:39] <rikkib> RPi + STM32V embedded system + switches + relays + relay buffer + 2A DC - DC
[3:40] <rikkib> Debug interface and pl2303 module to debug serial.
[3:42] <invisiblek> Goleif, are you adding the nfs source from within xbmc?
[3:42] <invisiblek> might be better off ssh'ing in and mounting it
[3:43] <invisiblek> then adding the local path in xbmc
[3:44] <Goleif> invisiblek: Yes I am. I don't really have any unix skills (unfortunately). Should I just use "mount -t path path" then?
[3:45] <fuzz1981> http://www.flickr.com/photos/89957509@N03/8177478524/
[3:45] <invisiblek> probably best off googling how to mount an nfs share, depending on your situation there may be more variables here than i care to work with haha
[3:46] <invisiblek> as long as you can ssh to it, it should be pretty easy

[3:46] <invisiblek> lol fuzz1981 why?
[3:47] <fuzz1981> why not? :D
[3:48] <invisiblek> heh
[3:48] <invisiblek> i was unaware you could power it from gpio
[3:48] <Goleif> invisiblek: Thanks. Good night.
[3:48] <invisiblek> that's pretty cool
[3:48] * Goleif (Goleif@ Quit ()
[3:49] <fuzz1981> yep .. just feed it regulated 5v
[3:49] <fuzz1981> using a mini box ATX DC-DC PSU
[3:49] <invisiblek> my pi is going into this: http://invisiblek.imgur.com/all/
[3:49] <invisiblek> bleh
[3:49] <invisiblek> stupid link haha
[3:49] <invisiblek> http://i.imgur.com/fBhxU.jpg
[3:49] <invisiblek> that ^
[3:49] <invisiblek> so i might consider using the gpio instead now that i know about it
[3:50] <fuzz1981> nice
[3:50] <fuzz1981> i'm mostly playing with custom clustering protocols/algorithms .. my office has enough full blown heat generating computers in it :)
[3:51] <invisiblek> heh
[3:54] <bcgrown> anyone know a good auto-highlighting/auto-indenting text editor for writing Python in Linux? and no i'm not going to use vim or emacs. :)
[3:55] <invisiblek> nano
[3:55] <invisiblek> maybe? (not sure if it does python)
[3:56] <invisiblek> yep, it appears it acn
[3:56] <invisiblek> can*
[3:56] <Dan39> vim
[3:57] <bcgrown> what, how does nano do python? gedit is good but doesn't indent

[4:06] <bcgrown> murder whoever invented vim

[11:04] <jondot> hey guys. so after a week with a raspbian on SD card, looks like it wont boot and reinstalling gets me tons of I/O errors
[11:04] <jondot> this means SD card is now broken?
[11:04] <steve_rox> could do
[11:05] <steve_rox> installing from a master image file?
[11:06] <jondot> what do you mean?
[11:07] <steve_rox> usually you download a image file
[11:07] <steve_rox> and write to the sd
[11:07] <jondot> well actually i'm using raspbmc which is based on raspbian. with time i just used it both as streamer and as local home server
[11:07] <steve_rox> least in windows
[11:07] * scummos (~sven@p57B1B2C5.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:07] <jondot> yes, thats what I did. I wrote the installer to SD, then let it boot from RPI and it downloaded everything etc
[11:08] <steve_rox> i guess check the sd card in windows using chkdsk or whatever , try another sd
[11:08] <steve_rox> thats 2 options i can think of at moment
[11:09] <jondot> these things are so crappy like floppies??

[11:13] <steve_rox> i just suggest testing another sd in it to eliminate a few possiblitys
[11:14] <Opinie> mind my butting in? does jondot's got a bad card, does he?
[11:14] <Opinie> *-s
[11:14] <jondot> i put a new one now, it starts installation again just fine
[11:14] <steve_rox> not sure
[11:14] <steve_rox> im near about to pass out
[11:14] <Opinie> k
[11:15] <steve_rox> could try read/write tests in windows on it
[11:15] <jondot> Opinie: well yea, it was fine for a week but thats it. i'd give it like total 10 hours of operation on an Rpi as a streamer
[11:15] <Opinie> erm. did you over clock it much?
[11:15] <Opinie> *overclock
[11:15] <jondot> no, i don't even know how to do that
[11:15] <Opinie> ok
[11:15] <jondot> i'm using raspbmc out of the box
[11:16] <jondot> can i low level format this thing or in any way return it to factory settings or is this got like a physical sector bad
[11:17] <jondot> i find it hard to believe that this thing has sectors that can die.. its not like it is magnetic or sth
[11:17] <steve_rox> full formatting it on any device should display any errors i think?
[11:17] * loadbang (~loadbang@host109-150-21-86.range109-150.btcentralplus.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:17] <jondot> well i got a ton of IO errors from RPi when i attempted to reinstall a fresh raspbmc distro on it
[11:18] <steve_rox> IO error suggests communication tho , a dead sector etc i doubt would create that error?
[11:18] * trijntje (~quassel@ubuntu/member/trijntje) has joined #raspberrypi
[11:18] <jondot> i see. well i'll try some kind of low-level format.. see how that can be done
[11:19] <steve_rox> shove it into windows and tell it to full format it?
[11:19] <steve_rox> i dunno im too sleepy for this now
[11:19] <Tachyon`> that won't work
[11:19] <jondot> yea will do
[11:19] <jondot> thanks
[11:20] <Tachyon`> the windows full format merely verifies
[11:20] <Tachyon`> you need to fill the card with data
[11:20] <Tachyon`> then format it
[11:20] <Tachyon`> to make sure naything bad is remapped
[11:20] <jondot> hmm.. ok i can do that too
[11:20] <jondot> it matters how many files?

[11:20] <Tachyon`> one file if it uses the whole card
[11:20] <steve_rox> what about chkdsk with full sector checking
[11:20] <jondot> k
[11:20] <Tachyon`> does that actually write to the sectors?
[11:21] <steve_rox> it tests them
[11:21] <steve_rox> so i assume yes
[11:21] <Tachyon`> but does it WRITE to them
[11:21] <Tachyon`> a lot of things test by merely reading

[11:38] <n1ko> first hit with google and "openelec emulators" http://openelec.tv/forum/128-addons/38614-openelec-game-console-emulators
[11:38] <Sonny_Jim> I think that link is for x86
[11:39] <n1ko> yes..?
[11:39] <Sonny_Jim> I was wondering more along the lines of RetroArch
[11:39] <Sonny_Jim> But I think I'll need to get a stock Rasbian image and install Retroarch and XBMC
[11:39] <n1ko> afaik theres nothing ready, but copying those guys efforts shouldn't be too hard
[11:39] <jondot> i have a theory
[11:39] <n1ko> just compiling the packages to arm and s on
[11:39] <jondot> does it take extra-power during installation?
[11:40] <n1ko> jondot: nope
[11:40] <jondot> b/c i have rigged my pi into my TV USB port
[11:40] <jondot> it didn't even install on the new card - i got 'i/o' error
[11:40] <n1ko> hook up proper power, i bet your tv cant supply 700mAh
[11:40] <jondot> looks like everything now works on the old card + connecting to power outlet
[11:40] <jondot> n1ko: it worked for a week, today i got the SD corrupted
[11:41] <n1ko> might be or might not be related, but easy to rule out

[12:24] <xranby> which
[12:25] * xranby sends apology to all English speakers
[12:25] <artag> i have a little pack from oyama-mobility that says it's 2000mAh. But I suspect that's the pack itself at a typical lithium 3.7V. Once it's boosted to 5V, it's pulling a fair bit more out of the pack than is going to the load
[12:27] <xranby> and Cymraeg speakers, i really should study more languages.
[12:28] * akiwiguy is now known as akiwiguy|away
[12:29] <Jck_true> artag: It is... Just a plain lithium battery wrapped in tin foil and soldered to a stepup converter...
[12:30] <Jck_true> Talking about all this... Anybody know of a OS suitable for the RasPi that could survive reboots like that?
[12:30] <Jck_true> I'm thinking something could mount the SD in read only
[12:31] * hyperair (~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:31] <artag> that's what I was asking earlier. it's possible to configure linux so it mounts the disk read-only and keeps all its temporary files in ram. then if it reboots, it loses temporary stuff but the disk isn't corrupt
[12:31] <xranby> Jck_true: edit /etc/fstab and use something like:
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /lib/init/rw tmpfs rw,nosuid,mode=0755 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> varrun /var/run tmpfs rw,nosuid,mode=0755 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> varlock /var/lock tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /var/log tmpfs defaults,noatime 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /var/lib tmpfs defaults,noatime 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /var/cache/apt tmpfs defaults,noatime 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> tmpfs /etc/network/run tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
[12:31] <xranby> /dev/sda1 / ext3 noatime,ro 0 1
[12:32] <artag> you also need to move logfiles and /var stuff off though
[12:32] <xranby> Jck_true: the idea is to keep all system log folders in a tmpfs
[12:32] <xranby> and then your system should boot fine using read only
[12:33] <Jck_true> Let me just make a note of that :)
[12:33] <Jck_true> Maybe even extend the FAT32 portion
[12:33] <Jck_true> Let it write it write occasional logs to that
[12:34] <Jck_true> (Make sure I write only a sepcific times and close the file the moment I'm done)
[12:34] <artag> the best thing for logs is to syslog them over the network to another machine
[12:34] <xranby> Jck_true: you can have a script to enable "service mode"
[12:35] <xranby> sudo mount -o remount,rw /
[12:35] <xranby> umount /var/cache/apt/
[12:35] <xranby> umount /var/log/
[12:35] <xranby> umount /var/lib/
[12:35] <xranby> and then after updating packages re enter ro-mode
[12:35] <xranby> sudo mount -o remount,ro /
[12:35] <xranby> mount /var/lib/
[12:35] <xranby> mount /var/log/
[12:35] <xranby> mount /var/cache/apt/
[12:35] <Jck_true> I'm working on the idea of turning the Raspi into a small PLC unit that's programmable over a web browser
[12:36] <Jck_true> After you finished configuring it the setup will be written to the FAT32 part
[12:36] <Jck_true> (So it's easy to backup and recover on a windows maschine
[12:36] <Jck_true> Sorry - My english is pretty horrible today
[12:36] <artag> you could have an additional fat32 partition for that, keep the boot partition safe
[12:37] <Jck_true> My biggest issue is creating some form of web ui for a plc language...
[12:37] <xranby> Jck_true: i have tested running debian systems in read only mode for over a year on 70+ installations using the above method
[12:38] <Jck_true> xranby: I didn't even know it was that easy - I was having all sorts of ideas about finding linux in the 2.6 branch and loading everything into a ram in a miniefied system etc etc

[14:51] <gazzwi86> but I want to detect when the foot hits the floor or at least close to it
[14:51] <harbaum> depends on the application. For short ranges these optical sharp sensors are nice: http://www.acroname.com/robotics/info/articles/sharp/sharp.html
[14:53] <harbaum> utrasonic devices don't work that well on short distances and only have a low resultion in time as you have to wait for all echoes until you can start another conversion
[14:54] <harbaum> But the "number of devices" is difficult. Do these sensors count as one device? If yes, why doesn't a complete keyboard?

[14:57] <Macer> going to dd this damn sd once i get the chance
[14:58] <gazzwi86> I'm projecting onto a public street and need to have all the tech mounted on a wall
[14:58] <harbaum> These don'tneed reflectors.Tey work well on nearly anything
[14:59] <gazzwi86> harbaum: do they need a wall or something to reflect of then?
[14:59] <gazzwi86> or would it just been the foot
[14:59] <artag> this uses the Sharp sensors http://publicinterventions.org/phantom-railings/
[15:00] <artag> but they're aimed at chest level rather than foot
[15:01] <harbaum> that shouln't make much of a difference
[15:01] <artag> i think they're the older analog ones though rather than the ones harbaum linked

[15:12] <Hodapp> anildigital: you want to use it on a Mac? Good luck.
[15:13] <anildigital> Hodapp: why?
[15:13] <anildigital> both raspberry and mac
[15:13] <Hodapp> anildigital: because of the huge array of FSes that Linux supports natively, OS X supports damn near zero of them.
[15:13] <Hodapp> just about the only ones I can think of are FAT and NTFS (if you abuse that 'native' term quite a bit)
[15:13] <anildigital> Hodapp: :(

[15:14] <anildigital> NTFS works with rPi?
[15:14] <Hodapp> you might be able to get the drivers for it working.
[15:14] <applegekko> yes all linux distros support ntfs
[15:14] <Hodapp> applegekko: *all* of them?
[15:14] <Hodapp> I highly doubt that.
[15:14] <applegekko> its built into the kernel
[15:15] <anildigital> applegekko: should I go ahead and format it with ntfs support?
[15:16] <Hodapp> Are you talking about ntfs-3g? That's explicitly not a part of the kernel.
[15:16] <Hodapp> anildigital: if you do format it, I wouldn't put anything important on it yet.
[15:16] <anildigital> Hodapp: hmm ntfs 3g and nffs are different?
[15:17] <applegekko> ntfs 3g is the module
[15:17] <Hodapp> applegekko: and it's FUSE, which means it's in userspace, not the kernel.

[15:18] <Hodapp> it's also what you have to use on OS X, I believe

[15:22] <anildigital> back to suqare one.. what should be the file system format for 1TB usb harddrive.. which would be connected to mainly RPi and sometimes in a month or so to a Mac machine?

[15:25] <anildigital> fo usb harddisk
[15:26] <gordonDrogon> an alternative might be to put the disk into a NAS type service - then both can access it via the LAN ...
[15:26] <applegekko> ext4
[15:26] <applegekko> btrfs
[15:26] <woozly> Guys, I have 16Gb SD Card, but after burning it with wheezy, I see not all space
[15:26] <woozly> how to get my space back?
[15:27] <gordonDrogon> boot it and run the raspi-config ...
[15:27] <chithead> you need to increase the size of the partition
[15:27] <woozly> oh.. good, thank you guys!
[15:27] <gordonDrogon> doing it on the Pi is easier. you get the menu automatically at first boot time.
[15:27] <Hodapp> Don't use btrfs, it's half-baked and unstable.
[15:28] <Hodapp> gordonDrogon: that's what I ended up doing.
[15:28] <gordonDrogon> yea, seems the easiest way these days.
[15:28] <Hodapp> ext2/3/4 are good, but you may not find good cross-platform ext4 support. OS X has drivers for reading ext2/3 at least, but it sounds like writing is unreliable.

[19:16] <DexterLB> those hdmi->vga cables, they are supposed to need RGB colour format on the hdmi, right?
[19:16] <artag> yeah, simple cables won't convert digital from rpi into analog for vga
[19:17] <plugwash> Some vendors are selling passive HDMI-VGA cables, these will only work if the device specifically supports a non-standard analog mode on it's HDMI connector and the sellers offering them without making this extremely clear are IMO selling goods that are not fit for purpose

[19:23] <DexterLB> doubt that it can all be fit inside such a tiny connector, and even if it is possible, only for $10?!
[19:23] <DexterLB> but still, it's worth a try

[23:18] * dekroning (~dekroning@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:18] <plugwash> and it really needs to be a storage scope
[23:18] <fuzz1981> i use a usb scope

[23:19] <scummos> I have a analog 2-channel scope from 1970
[23:19] <scummos> it's pretty good for being from 1970 but it's obviously not a storage scope ;P

[23:19] <fuzz1981> round CRT display

[23:20] <scummos> plugwash: oh, yes, indeed
[23:20] <ebswift> is a scope used for designing as well as for finding a fault?
[23:20] <fuzz1981> you move the trigger across the time axis
[23:20] <fuzz1981> yes
[23:20] <rikkib> A spectrum analyzer is high on my wish list if I had the money. Specially one that goes to 3GHz.

[23:22] <scummos> now I just need to solder it
[23:22] <scummos> (I have most of the parts too)
[23:22] <ebswift> yeah... what about for looking at loads and deciding on resistor/capacitor values, or does all that come down to maths?
[23:22] <scummos> and then it has to work of course
[23:22] <fuzz1981> network analyzer for RF?
[23:22] <scummos> yes, for around 400MHz
[23:22] <fuzz1981> nice
[23:22] <scummos> the hardware could theoretically handle up to 3.5GHz or so

[23:27] <rikkib> Hmmm. I thought you were.
[23:27] <plugwash> and we thought we might end up doing some 5.8GHz stuff too (hence why we got the FSH8 not the FSH4)
[23:28] <DooMMasteR> plugwash: aren't they pretty much basic devices
[23:29] <plugwash> the FSH8 is a pretty conventional specan but it's portable

[23:30] <plugwash> one thing I have realised since we got the FSH8 though is that there are two types of specan

[23:30] <DooMMasteR> plugwash: in what aspect?
[23:31] <plugwash> which makes them relatively slow because most of the information in the input signal is lost
[23:31] <plugwash> while there are now some specans that digitise first and then analyse
[23:31] <plugwash> making them MUCH faster because they can reuse the same input information for all frequencies
[23:31] <DooMMasteR> plugwash: the Tek can do both??? but RT stuff is limited in bandwidth
