[0:00] <jer> ozzzy, so no driving empty school busses or motorcycles for you! =]
[0:00] * llorllale (~llorllale@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:03] <dodokuse> tow an empty schoolbus full of motorcycles
[0:03] <ozzzy> no driving big straight trucks either
[0:03] <dodokuse> ... with a bicycle :D
[0:04] <ozzzy> I had DZ and M
[0:04] <ozzzy> now I just have G
[0:04] <dodokuse> i drove a giant truck with air brakes before... i was afraid my foot would slip off the brake pedal because i had to push down so hard

[0:10] <MINIMAN10000> one thing i was wondering on the raspberry pi is undervolting. You can hop in a text file and set over_voltage 1-6 but I don't see anything on undervolting
[0:10] <MINIMAN10000> raspecifically speaking about the rasberry pi 2 B

[0:17] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: It cvan also be tiresome when people doubt your needs. I understand lots of people think they need to do something because they don't know the alternatives. This is not the case and it's a very clearly simple expressed need.
[0:18] * c00ljs (~c00ljs@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:18] * tombrough (~tom@cpc3-newt3-0-0-cust8.19-3.cable.virginm.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:18] * pklaus (~pklaus@p200300514521D50002C008FFFE88220F.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[0:19] * gagabone (~gagabone@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/gagabone) has left #raspberrypi
[0:19] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: There's 4 projectors, and 5 raspberries and 5 sets of speakers, running 5 different videos of different length in a loop on omxplayer. at specific intervals (non periodic) of a 5 count loop set of the "main" video (which is not the longest), only one of the videos should produce sound. It's an art instalation
[0:20] <SpeakerToMeat> There's no remotes, no finger, no controlling people, only endless loops of videos whose possitions regarding eachother are always shifting given continuous loops of different length
[0:21] <Jack64> SpeakerToMeat: there should be some signal you can send to the running omxplayer that mutes it..
[0:22] * Trid (~tyler@2602:306:bde7:6b50:6c88:663d:f7ca:d5c9) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:22] <SpeakerToMeat> Jack64: No from the front, while the omx library omxplayer uses has a SetMute method, it is not exposed to any keystroke by omxplayer. But checking the source code for omxplayer and the embedded omx library, I saw it has a dbus call I can use for mute.
[0:23] <SpeakerToMeat> Jack64: I was going to replicate the methods used to expose SetVolume to a keystroke to bring a keystroke to SetMute, but this is better/simpler. all I need to do is make one of two dbus calls.
[0:23] * NemeSys (~NemeSys@unaffiliated/nemesystem) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:24] <Jack64> maybe you should pursue that, a quick google search turns up nothing. it's weird there's no key binding for mute, I don't consider mute to be an optional feature on a media player..
[0:25] * pklaus (~pklaus@p200300514508CB00CDE3D66C013E3F99.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:26] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: There's 8 speakers with no external volume or power control methods. And the videos always shift regarding one another. the options to act externally here are either setting up 8 triact/relay boards to manually power the speakers on/off via gpio control, or make day long loop compilations of 5 videos and calculate shifting mute periods to cover a whole day and have them reset the exhibit
[0:26] <SpeakerToMeat> daily. both are methods that require LOTS of resources, thus I analized and determined producing a mute on th eplaying system was the fastest simplest solution, and I it seems I was right, specially now that I found a working mechanism
[0:27] <SpeakerToMeat> Jack64: it is strange. But remember omxplayer was a test player done by a group to try doing decoding and playing on the raspberry, and once it was dropped people continued to support and extend it because they saw other uses. Mostly automated I think, so it's not a very common player
[0:27] <SpeakerToMeat> Jack64: Anyhow modifying the code to bring a keystroke set to mute shouldn't be more than a day's work at most.
[0:27] <Sonny_Jim> SHouldn't be more than 20 minutes tbh
[0:27] <Sonny_Jim> There's code already there to read the keys and change the volume.
[0:28] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: Yeah should be just copying and refactoring some code.
[0:28] <Sonny_Jim> But why do you have to mute it in the first place?
[0:28] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: But for now the dbus approach is better for my needs, since I'm controlling this all from python with a distributed system anyhow
[0:29] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: Because the main video should only sound during certain moments, the others should sound at different intervals. they're all on a common space.
[0:29] <Sonny_Jim> So some poor sod has to sit there all day hitting a mute button?
[0:30] <SpeakerToMeat> There is no mute button dude. How many times do I need to say this?
[0:30] <SpeakerToMeat> It's automated
[0:30] <Jack64> Sonny_Jim probably meant an external mute
[0:30] <SpeakerToMeat> It's controlled from a central unit with python code communicating thorough a queue
[0:30] * andersoldahl (~andersold@2601:6:7580:1cd:59a6:3c47:bed7:221a) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:30] <SpeakerToMeat> Ah. well there's no external mute either
[0:30] * gbaman (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] * sentriz (~sentriz@unaffiliated/sentriz) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:31] <SpeakerToMeat> Audio goes direct to amplified speakers
[0:32] <Jack64> ah, that makes it harder yes
[0:32] <Sonny_Jim> So there's more than one Pi?
[0:32] <Jack64> dbus seems to be your best bet then, especially for use with distributed control
[0:32] <SpeakerToMeat> there's 5 pis
[0:32] * lord4163 (~lord4163@78-68-207-39-no226.tbcn.telia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[0:33] <SpeakerToMeat> Jack64: Yes, the unit with the "main" video has a schedule list of when sound must be given to one of the other PIs, and send command via rpc or a message queue
[0:33] * lord4163 (~lord4163@78-68-207-39-no226.tbcn.telia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:33] * hjf_ (~hjf@unaffiliated/hjf) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:34] <hjf_> has anyone tried to use raspi as a video multicast client?
[0:35] <hjf_> a friend of mine wants to set up a bunch of TVs and display the same picture in all of them, distributed in a location that's about 10.000 square meters
[0:35] <hjf_> i told him maybe raspberry pies in each TV would work
[0:35] <SpeakerToMeat> pictures or video?
[0:36] <hjf_> video would be great
[0:36] <pksato> all videos on sync?
[0:36] <hjf_> not critical
[0:36] <hjf_> it's a bus station, he wants to display bus times and advertisements
[0:36] <hjf_> he basically wants to broadcast the screen of a computer to all TVs
[0:36] <pksato> Yes, some guy make patch to oxmplayer control others player on other pies.
[0:37] <hjf_> HDMI would be too expensive
[0:37] <hjf_> so maybe raspi every few TVs and an HDMI splitter
[0:37] <pksato> ah... signage
[0:38] <hjf_> if all raspi can tune into the same multicast stream it would be easy and scalable
[0:39] <hjf_> just basic linux and boot straight into video player, nothing else
[0:39] <pksato> https://www.screenlyapp.com/
[0:39] <jasabella> heh reminds me of junkyard jumbotron
[0:39] <hjf_> awesome
[0:40] <Sonny_Jim> SpeakerToMeat: How do you maintain sync? Surely over the course of a day the videos will slowly drift by a couple of seconds?
[0:41] <SpeakerToMeat> Only the main video is vital to sync regarding audio, a daily shutdown at night and powerup at day might be enough.
[0:41] <SpeakerToMeat> If not, I'll have to delve into timecode syncing. which will be a pita
[0:41] <SpeakerToMeat> And probably will have to drop omxplayer altogether and pray I can make hardware accelerated gstreamer or vlc decoding work
[0:42] <Bilby> hjf_, i'm using ~15 raspberry pi units as digital display boards
[0:42] <Bilby> using screenly
[0:42] <Bilby> no wait, we're using rise
[0:42] <Bilby> i evaluated a ton of them a year ago and that was the one that was best for our uses
[0:43] <SpeakerToMeat> Ugh Imma have dinner before I faint
[0:43] <SpeakerToMeat> People in IT
[0:43] <SpeakerToMeat> try never to help artist friends if you can avoid it
[0:43] <Bilby> !summon something squiggly and screaming to SpeakerToMeat
[0:43] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: Got sushi
[0:43] <Bilby> it's not a pearson's puppeteer, but it's not bad
[0:44] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I'll check that one you say for future projects. How about libraries for rise? you dev in linux? good access to hardware devices and accel in libraries?
[0:44] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: Sick reference bro
[0:44] <Bilby> Rise is pretty good, they distribute a base install that is basically plug and go
[0:45] <Bilby> lemmie see if i can find the doc i was using to evaluate
[0:45] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I really wanted to pummel Nessus after all his manipulations and stuff
[0:45] <Bilby> lol no shit, what an asshole
[0:45] <Bilby> err <_<
[0:45] * Gathis (~TheGrey@unaffiliated/gathis) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:45] * Bilby flees
[0:46] <SpeakerToMeat> even if it was the puppeteers intervention that eventually benefited humanity

[0:46] * sentriz (~sentriz@unaffiliated/sentriz) Quit (Quit: quiting)
[0:47] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:47] * strobelight (~strobelig@c-50-147-227-97.hsd1.ga.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:48] <SpeakerToMeat> Hell, power if acting funny
[0:52] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: Or you mean between the 5 movies? there is none. started all together via network command, but since they're different lengths they shift in regards to eachother all day. Only main movie has sound that's syncronous to video events, the others have ambient sound
[0:56] * diegoaguilar (~diegoagui@187-163-193-24.static.axtel.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:56] <Sonny_Jim> So, really what you wanted was a way to mute sound via the network across 5 pis
[0:56] * gbaman (~gbaman@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:57] * MasterPiece (~MasterPie@unaffiliated/masterpiece) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:57] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-228-80.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[0:58] <SpeakerToMeat> What I want is to mute sound on a pi, playing with omxplayer yes
[0:58] <SpeakerToMeat> the command to do so will come thorough the network in this case.
[0:58] <Sonny_Jim> ..over a network
[0:58] <Bilby> I just found all my digital signage research
[0:58] <Sonny_Jim> Really could have done with mentioning the 5 pis bit earlier ;-)
[0:58] <Bilby> i should update it and throw it up somewhere
[0:58] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: WHy?
[0:58] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I'd be grateful for that
[0:58] <Sonny_Jim> Because there are only a few ways to mute over a network
[0:58] <Bilby> eh, with SSH all things are possible
[0:59] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: What extra ways do you have to mute locally that do not work over a network?
[0:59] <day> which is the most used minimal debian image for rasp2?
[0:59] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: do you only want to mute the audio regardless?
[1:00] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I don't know what roll to eat last
[1:00] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Yes.
[1:00] * exobuzz (~xbuzz@2001:470:1f09:1970:c49b:7ace:5466:f30b) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:00] <ali1234> if so, just change the pin functions directly
[1:00] <Sonny_Jim> In future, try and explain what it is your are trying to do fully, rather than saying "No, that won't work because X"
[1:00] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Somethign that needs to be done on omxplayer itself, since alsa doesn't affect it as it seems to be using direct hardware.
[1:00] <Bilby> Oh I hate that
[1:01] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: You see, the network part does NOT affect this at all.
[1:01] <ali1234> if you change the pin functions it is like unplugging the audio connector
[1:01] <Bilby> I usually try to eat them evenly and then save the last piece of my favorite one to eat the last
[1:01] <Bilby> SpeakerToMeat here's what I found - this is from Jul - Sep 2014 so a little old but not too bad. https://justpaste.it/klxx
[1:01] <Bilby> Iirc, Rise may be supporting video on the Pi2 soon
[1:02] <Bilby> basically what we do is point Rise at a google doc
[1:02] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: I feel you failed to read or grasp what I was saying and that was the reason for our impasse. I was clear, I need to mute audio, internally on the pi, without using external methods to mute. you refused to acknowledge it and chose to believe I was wrong and external methods were what I needed.
[1:02] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I'll check it out, thanks a lot
[1:02] <Bilby> and have the person who updates the schedules just chnage the doc. it was easier than training them directly on the rise suite which is pretty complex :|
[1:02] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Interesting. Where can I read more on this?

[1:02] * PKodon (~PKodon@unaffiliated/pkodon) Quit (Quit: KVIrc 4.3.1 Aria http://www.kvirc.net/)
[1:03] <Bilby> SpeakerToMeat You're welcome. I'm trying to convince my business partner to start publishing a blog of the neat stuff we do, if I can do that I'll start pushing up a ton of RasPi things
[1:03] <AirForce590> Bilby: Awesome!
[1:03] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: That sounds like fun. do you work in very different embedded projects?
[1:03] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: are you using HDMI?
[1:04] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: hdmi video, but plug (local) audio not hdmi audio
[1:04] * gbaman (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:04] <Bilby> We work with a bunch of small businesses with weird problems so we're always looking for inexpensive solutions to things
[1:04] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: I like that, a lot, it's something me and dad want to do.
[1:04] <AirForce590> Bilby: Would you like to see my project?
[1:05] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: As he says, we integrate solutions we're not brand vendors with a warehouse of stale products to push :D
[1:05] <Bilby> IE rather than buying a distributed digital billboard system, build one out of Pi's. We're also experimenting with a Pi-based Asterix VoIP server and a Pi server to monitor remote server rooms
[1:05] <AirForce590> Wow
[1:05] <AirForce590> Awesome
[1:05] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: abotu the asterisk server, there is something a friend of mine did a long time ago you might find interesting.
[1:05] <Bilby> I have base code and designs to build a pi-based internet monitor that would automatically power-cycle modem / router if connectivity is lost and notify someone via a mobile data connectino when it happens
[1:06] <Bilby> AirForce590 link to project?
[1:06] * codestorm (~codestorm@cpe-75-83-205-183.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:06] <AirForce590> Bilby: Just a photo, it's a work in progress but I'll give you links when I'm done
[1:06] <AirForce590> to blogs
[1:06] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: You know asterisk has an extensions limit. He used an old machine so this should work on a pi well too, well he virtualized with OpenVZ which is a VERY low system cost virtualization as it's not hardware virtualization. set one asterisk pbx on each instance and connected them with the asterisk internal bus protocol
[1:06] <Bilby> Coolio
[1:07] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: He could manage a couple thousand extensions with a simple machine
[1:07] <Bilby> Hah nice
[1:07] <Criggie> transcoding would be the limiter
[1:07] <Bilby> Do yuu remember what the extension limit is?
[1:07] <Criggie> if you ahve to transcode, it'll be much lower
[1:07] <Bilby> Iirc i've seen some big asterix boxes
[1:07] <SpeakerToMeat> Yes transcoding would be killer. but generally in a single location you want to avoid transcoding anyhow as you can control the codec environment end to end.
[1:07] <SpeakerToMeat> it's the outgoing stuff that can kill you
[1:08] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: 250 or 255 I think
[1:08] <Bilby> We have our "phone system" on a Pi right now. Started on a B which was a bit laggy, went to a 2, it's amazing
[1:08] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: consulting the schematic, the analog audio out is on GPIO40 and GPIO45
[1:09] <Bilby> eheh, i don't think that'll be a problem speaker. Our biggest client at the moment has less than 100 extensions iirc
[1:09] <Bilby> they're using a samsung voip system which has been okayish
[1:09] <ali1234> see https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bcm2835/BCM2835-ARM-Peripherals.pdf page 102
[1:09] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: What do you use for an FXO (to convert pots to voip)?
[1:09] <ali1234> and https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/schematics/Raspberry-Pi-Rev-2.1-Model-AB-Schematics.pdf page 2
[1:10] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: So, disabling the gpios would effectively kill sound?
[1:10] <Bilby> for the Pi just a sip trunk provider
[1:10] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: I'll check that, thank you so very much
[1:10] <ali1234> yes, just change the function mode
[1:10] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: is tristated out a valid mode for the gpios on the bcm?
[1:10] <ali1234> you can do that by using /dev/mem to write directly into the special function registers
[1:10] <Bilby> actually i think we're technically using skype right now haha
[1:11] <ali1234> you probably don't want to tristate them unless you like loud popping noises
[1:11] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Can't use python-rpi-gpios for that I guess
[1:11] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Eh... true.
[1:11] * codestorm (~codestorm@cpe-75-83-205-183.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:11] <ali1234> you can use anything you want, but i have found that libraries like those are too clever for their own good
[1:11] <ali1234> and if you change the function register it "helpfully" turns off audio completely for you
[1:11] <ali1234> and then you can't turn it on again
[1:11] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: Be happy you use sip and never had to fight h232. I still have nightmares
[1:11] <ali1234> so i prefer to hit the hardware directly
[1:12] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Makes sense
[1:12] <Bilby> I have a meeting in a couple of weeks with a client who we're going to pitch a Pi-based phone system to. Conveniantly their fax machine just died and i moved them to an efax service :D
[1:12] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Should only be a couple of lines of c to do it anyhow
[1:12] <ali1234> right
[1:12] <ali1234> all the registers you need are in the pdf
[1:12] <Bilby> they'd still need one POTS line for the alarm / fire system but everything else could easily be done with skype
[1:12] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: Good, fax is always one of the biggest headaches when moving voip
[1:12] <Bilby> ikr
[1:12] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: I'll check, thank you
[1:13] <Bilby> they didn't want to move to a monthly fee but the person who does 90% of the office work was like THIS IS AMAZING WHY DID WE NOT DO THIS BEFORE
[1:13] * ozzzy won't give up his land line
[1:13] <ali1234> here is an example using /dev/mem to change a register value: http://paste.debian.net/167560/
[1:13] <Bilby> ozzzy i'll probably get a landline when we have kids, but i've been cell-only since i got a phone
[1:13] <ozzzy> I don't have a cell
[1:13] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: Btw since you went with rise, how do you handle the lack of hardware accel? or it doesn't matter since you use slow changing pictures?
[1:13] <Bilby> acutally i'm only on my second phone number ever haha...
[1:14] <Bilby> SpeakerToMeat it's essentially a static display page that just refreshes every 10 minutes or so
[1:14] <SpeakerToMeat> Bilby: My biggest fear about doign dig sig with the pi (I am thinkign on doing my own software) is flash.
[1:14] <Bilby> the animations were way dissapointing, it's not really good for that on the Pi 1. might be better on the Pi 2
[1:14] * c00ljs (~c00ljs@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <Bilby> yeah flash no bueno
[1:14] <AirForce590> Bilby: Here, http://imgur.com/phflkMY http://imgur.com/M4lVFTz http://imgur.com/cvND3TT This is a Raspberry Pi robot I am building to help teach kids to code. It has a pantilt mount, two standard servos, and a Whippersnapper chassis from Actobotics. The drive motors are not wired up yet (waiting on L293d's) and I don't have a full battery solut
[1:14] <AirForce590> ion yet, but I got everything you see here (except for the webcam) for free, because ServoCity and MCM Electronics were more than happy to sponsor a 14yr old roboticist.
[1:14] <SpeakerToMeat> flash animations is a marvelous option to offer to a client. and a steaming pile of code.
[1:14] <Bilby> their built-in features work pretty well
[1:14] <AirForce590> Sorry for the long msg
[1:15] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: i used to work in digital signage and everyone wanted to send us flash animations
[1:15] <ali1234> i had to convert them to mpeg2 with a screen recorder
[1:15] <ali1234> it was really bad
[1:15] <Bilby> AirForce590 that's really cool man, nice work!
[1:15] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Yes.
[1:16] <AirForce590> Bilby: It runs wifi in adhoc and has an instance of mjpg streamer that runs on startup for ssh programming
[1:16] <Bilby> a long time ago in a galexy far far away I had an RC truck with a PTZ camera on it for pulling long network cables through drop ceilings. it worked really well actually :D
[1:16] <Bilby> ah nice
[1:16] <AirForce590> Bilby: awesome!
[1:16] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Personally you want my oppinion? I HATE flash for digital signage, because run time interpretation can be variable, much more variable than video... I recently sat at a bank with windows based flash based dig sig, and there was an error on the file or engine and half the figures inthe animation where missing.
[1:16] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: And half the text.
[1:16] * exobuzz (~xbuzz@2001:470:1f09:1970:d94f:3b2a:24d6:2caf) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <ali1234> yes, absolutely
[1:16] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: With video, it either works, or does not work, you rarely get half results (unless you start pushing the hardware boundaries with bitrate)
[1:17] <SpeakerToMeat> I preffer a clean "oops" screen than a tortured half animation asking for mercy
[1:17] <ali1234> indeed. although video players are a lot better these days with the h264 and what not
[1:17] <Sonny_Jim> SpeakerToMeat: You are trying to mute audio on 4 Pi's at once, correct?
[1:17] <Bilby> If you can pre-render the animations into video you have more optiosn including the binaryemotions.com software which is very very nice
[1:17] <ali1234> mpeg2 hardware decoders were very fussy
[1:17] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: Drop it, please.
[1:17] <Bilby> we use that at another place that just needed one stand-alone unit
[1:17] <AirForce590> Bilby: What should I do for batteries? Apparently AAs don't agree with the Pi, so I was thinking of going this route. https://www.adafruit.com/products/1944
[1:18] <AirForce590> I want to power the motors and pi off the same supply for compactness
[1:18] <Bilby> Yeah LiPos are going to be the most power efficient
[1:18] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: WOuld you enlighten my ignorance please? these gpios used for the audio, they're dual function on the chip, like the spi/uart gpios are? or is the chip basically "bitbanging" the audio out?
[1:18] <AirForce590> Bilby: My main concern is output current
[1:18] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: they are multifunction yes
[1:19] <ali1234> and the analog audio is generated using the PWM hardware
[1:19] <ali1234> so one step up from bitbanging
[1:19] <Bilby> you might get something that can runn off of the 7.2v pack more common in RC.
[1:19] <ali1234> it is really very poor quality
[1:19] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: So just changing function should disable them as audio out. will the kernel driver or a direct user like omx notice?
[1:19] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Ugh analog audio is pwm.. I see.
[1:19] * c00ljs (~c00ljs@ Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[1:19] <AirForce590> Bilby: But, the chassis is kind of small, and I don't know how to power the pi off that
[1:19] <SpeakerToMeat> I wish I could've used hdmi audio for this
[1:19] <ali1234> right. changing the function will stop the audio getting out
[1:20] <SpeakerToMeat> But the projectors the artist got do not have audio out
[1:20] <ali1234> nothing will notice. the PWM hardware can be redirected to other pins - even more than one pin at the same time
[1:20] <ali1234> (or none)
[1:20] <Bilby> AirForce590, do you haev yuor motor drivers yet? what voltage do you need?
[1:20] * AndrevS (~andrevs@2001:980:7901:1:3ea9:f4ff:fe63:9784) Quit (Quit: umount /dev/irc)
[1:21] <Sonny_Jim> SpeakerToMeat: It's a valid question and it'll help others with your problem. You need to be able to disable sound on 4 Pis at once, controlled by a master Pi, right?
[1:21] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: So there's a single PWM engine in the chip? would the PWM on gpio18 affect audio production?
[1:21] <SpeakerToMeat> Sonny_Jim: Yes.
[1:21] <AirForce590> Bilby: no, but I ordered the L293d's. I will need two to drive four motors, so I think I'll need ~6v
[1:22] <ali1234> SpeakerToMeat: yes, it would - if you put pin 18 to PWM mode you get audio out of it
[1:22] <ali1234> merely doing this does not affect the audio out
[1:22] <ali1234> but you cannot use the PWM for PWM *and* audio
[1:22] <Bilby> the chip itself will handle 4.5 - 36V
[1:23] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Very interesting
[1:23] <Bilby> did you buy just the chips or are they on a board?
[1:23] <AirForce590> Bilby: chips only, I like to work that way. Will have breadboard
[1:23] * bortzmeyer (~stephane@2a01:e35:8bd9:8bb0:21e:8cff:fe76:29b6) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[1:23] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Well I don't foresee a need for this, but worst case scenario it should be possible to emulate the PWM hardware with another gpio in software form if necessary
[1:23] <Bilby> you certainly learn more that way :D
[1:23] <Bilby> what do the motors need for voltage?
[1:24] <AirForce590> Bilby: lets go into private msg if you don't mind
[1:24] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: Will you be driving the motors directly from the gpios?
[1:24] <ali1234> yes, one of the gpio libraries can already do that
[1:24] <AirForce590> actual;ly no sry
[1:24] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: absolutely not!
[1:24] <AirForce590> damgae galore
[1:24] <AirForce590> damage
[1:24] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: I've done this with microcontrollers and not a pi, but in general that is not a good idea. Even small motors can be outside the current max of the gpio, and worse if you have physical force on them
[1:25] <SpeakerToMeat> yeah
[1:25] <AirForce590> Bilby: I've been able to drive them off 5-6v
[1:25] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: Are they steppers, servo, or dc motors?
[1:25] <SpeakerToMeat> Sigh this process is almost finished. I can almost go home
[1:26] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: Standard 2wire dc, and as stated before I will be using l293d chips from TI, datasheet here http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/l293.pdf
[1:26] <Bilby> If 7.4v is within their power constraints, you can use two 3.7v cells in series to power them easily

[1:28] <SpeakerToMeat> I just lost 3 hours of work
[1:28] <Bilby> :O :(
[1:28] <SpeakerToMeat> And added 6 hours more of work to my queue
[1:28] <Bilby> AirForce590 i'm using a low-dropout voltage regulator to go from 5V to 3.3V for another chip, you can certainly use one to get from 7.4V to 5. That's the easiest solution but it's power-wasteful
[1:28] * SpeakerToMeat whimpers
[1:28] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: what? why
[1:29] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: Dad made a mistake compressing assets for a digital cinema movie
[1:29] <AirForce590> Bilby: powerboost 500c sounds like a much easier option
[1:29] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: I need to rebuild the whole set, and lost all the time making a disc.

[1:29] <Bilby> AirForce590 it's ready out of the box but i don't know if it's going to push your motors
[1:29] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: darn
[1:30] <AirForce590> Bilby: up to 2A output
[1:30] <Bilby> Well... i had a larger RC truck that was designed for power, so needs are different here and there, but those motors would pull up to 6 or 8A each I believe
[1:31] <AirForce590> No, I powered them from AAs
[1:31] <SpeakerToMeat> AAs wont last much with that kind of draw
[1:31] <Bilby> Yeah I just looked at the images again and those are more like micro motors, so you'll probably be okay-ish
[1:31] <SpeakerToMeat> Wait the draw is not actually 2A is it?
[1:31] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: just to test
[1:31] <Bilby> you might try powering them at 5V and testing with an Ammeter for current draw
[1:31] <SpeakerToMeat> Ok
[1:32] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: The powerboost has a limit of 2a draw
[1:32] <AirForce590> Bilby: can I use a multimeter
[1:32] <Bilby> because you have Pi, camera, wifi, motor controller and motors to push with that 2A
[1:32] <Bilby> yes
[1:32] <Bilby> if you have one with an amperage selection
[1:32] <AirForce590> ok
[1:32] <AirForce590> hold on
[1:32] <ali1234> so use two?
[1:33] <Bilby> Yet another reason i love the Pi, it causes so many interesting conversations. everything from EE theory to kernel, os, parser design, a/v, you name it
[1:33] * Izaya (~Izaya@unaffiliated/izaya) has left #raspberrypi
[1:33] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: Most multimeters will have special input to go over 100 or 200 mA
[1:33] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: So be sure to connect the leads to and use the right input
[1:33] <ali1234> the biggest problem you will have is dealing with inrush current
[1:33] <SpeakerToMeat> Unless you have a shunt
[1:33] <AirForce590> SpeakerToMeat: alright
[1:34] <Bilby> time to pull out the manual haha
[1:34] <ali1234> it will go over 1A per motor easily, even for tiny ones
[1:34] <ali1234> it can be enough to trip battery protection
[1:34] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: And it's fun if you phisically block them from moving
[1:34] <AirForce590> hold on, testing
[1:34] <ali1234> inrush current is equivalent - motors aren't moving when you start them up
[1:35] <SpeakerToMeat> ali1234: Ah true
[1:37] <Bilby> AirForce590, as comparison, it looks like regulating down is going to be easy and cheap. http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/L78S05CV/497-1468-5-ND/585989

[1:42] <AirForce590> 150ma under no load
[1:42] <AirForce590> per motor
[1:42] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: You will not notice the inrush on a normal multimeter. It's too short
[1:42] <Bilby> So that's a base of 600ma. Did you measure under load at all?
[1:42] <AirForce590> no
[1:43] <SpeakerToMeat> Stopping them with your hand will give you something close but not exact to inrush
[1:43] <AirForce590> well, it's more than 200ma, that's as high as my multi can go
[1:43] <Bilby> even with no-load you're looking at only having ~ 1.2A available for the rest of it. Cutting it very close
[1:43] <AirForce590> stopping them with hand
[1:43] <SpeakerToMeat> AirForce590: You multi has no special "hole" for over 200 mA?

[2:04] <SpeakerToMeat> And with that, I'm gone
[2:04] <ali1234> note those addresses are different to what you need
[2:04] <SpeakerToMeat> ok
[2:04] <ali1234> you have to subtract 0x7e000000
[2:05] <ali1234> and also on the pi2 it is different, if you have one of those
[2:05] <ali1234> wait, subtract 0x5e000000
[2:05] <ali1234> or something
[2:05] <ali1234> 0x7e200000 becomes 0x20200000 when you map it with /dev/mem

[2:06] <Xark> ali1234: Is there an API to get the address (or similar)?
[2:06] <ali1234> not really no
[2:06] <ali1234> just determine which pi version you are running on and then consult a huge lookup table
[2:07] <Xark> ali1234: So you just have to "detect" Pi2 and do the offset.
[2:07] <ali1234> yes
[2:07] * Aboba (~Bob@S010614cc209fc3d3.gv.shawcable.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[2:07] <ali1234> there are many ways to do that including various files in /proc and /sys and you can do it by looking directly at the hardware registers too
[2:07] * gbaman (~gbaman@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:08] <Xark> ali1234: I see. Hardware regs sounds reliable.
[2:08] <ali1234> just check if the hardware exists at the memory addresses where you expect :)
[2:09] <ali1234> this is easier than you might think, because invalid addresses within a memory page belonging to a specific piece of hardware generate a specific identification value

[3:49] <Ownix> Kodi cant play it either. OMX said it was using omx-h264 video codec, idk if that makes any sort of difference

[3:57] <karlton> mplayer is but it does not work very well on the rpi because of the lack of hardware acceleration

[4:00] <Ownix> Hmm well this omxplayer seems to work fantastically
[4:01] <Xark> Kodi probably uses the same API as omxplayer internally.
[4:01] <Xark> Ownix: Indeed. :)

[4:09] <Ownix> karlton: what do you use?
[4:11] <karlton> I either use portage or pacman but non of those are for debian based distros
[4:13] <Ownix> karlton: ah you're probably not using your pi primarily as an HTPC then
[4:13] <ring0> Ownix, apt-get autoremove (--purge)
[4:15] <karlton> Ownix: might look at this also: https://www.debian-administration.org/article/Removing_unnecessary_packages_with_deborphan
[4:16] <karlton> bleh, that page is a decade old though ;)
[4:17] <ali1234> apt-get autoremove?
[4:18] <ring0> yes, removes all unneeded packages installed as dependencies
[4:18] <Ownix> That seemed to work
[4:18] <Ownix> A little scared of purge though
[4:19] <ring0> purge just removes config files, too
[4:19] <Ownix> In case I install two packages and they both share the a dep and I autoremove one and it kills the shared dep and flushes the config files then I'm in a little trouble
[4:19] <ali1234> apt is smarter than that

[4:24] <Ownix> But it's still odd Kodi isn't using omxplayer
[4:25] <karlton> it is has to be built with ./configure..--with-platform=raspberry-pi --enable-player=omxplayer
[4:27] <Ownix> Wouldn't that take 14 years to build on the pi?

[4:31] <Ownix> exo-squad: same here
[4:31] <exo-squad> instead of like, 12 hours, it takes 3
[4:32] <Ownix> karlton: I just got Kodi from apt

[4:33] <exo-squad> the community, the projects, the makers,
[4:33] <exo-squad> its all awesome
[4:34] <karlton> exo-squad: Yeah, I used qemu to make the image for the rpi

[4:36] <xMopxShell> does the RasPi model B work with microSDHC cards?
[4:37] <exo-squad> yeah.

[8:17] <IsUp> I am using a new Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1, just arrived

[11:26] <[Saint]> If I use that, and it affects your equipment - big deal, get over it.
[11:26] <[Saint]> Long story short.
[11:31] <SpeedEvil> The in-car FM transmitters have filters. They output essentially no energy on the relevant band.
[11:31] <SpeedEvil> The Pi has no filter, it's purely squarewave, and outputs just as much on the 5th as the 3rd harmonic of the clock.

[11:43] <IsUp> and i am totally new to Pi
[11:43] <[Saint]> It should, in theory, just be a matter of brining the PiFM code up-to-date.

[12:27] <ShorTie> personally, i think you should not draw more then 75-80% of rated current out of a supply, when you start to get towards max you normally have problems with it keeping the voltage at the right level
[12:28] <ShorTie> and any extra inrush will exceed spec, thus causing posible failure/harm

[14:27] <AirForce590> cehteh: ok
[14:27] <cehteh> btw you prolly want different power rails for the pi and for motors/servos
[14:27] <AirForce590> what do you mean?
[14:28] <cehteh> you said robot .. i guess driven by a pi?
[14:28] <AirForce590> Yeah
[14:28] <AirForce590> yeah, different power rails
[14:28] <AirForce590> w/ diodes
[14:28] <AirForce590> to protect the pi from motor spikes
[14:28] <cehteh> na 2 regulators and the one for the pi prolly with a lc filter
[14:28] <cehteh> not diodes
[14:29] <cehteh> as long you have a common ground it'll be fine
[14:29] <AirForce590> ugh
[14:29] <AirForce590> what's an lc
[14:29] <cehteh> just a coil and a capacitor
[14:30] <AirForce590> I don't know how to build one
[14:30] <cehteh> low pass, keeps the electric noise the regulator generates away from the pi
[14:30] <AirForce590> ah
[14:30] <cehteh> its extremely simple
[14:30] <cehteh> http://www.fpvuk.org/how-tos/lc-filters/
[14:31] <AirForce590> ok
[14:31] <cehteh> the values are not very critical, since you need a lowpass as low as possible and the noise you want to keep away is about 150kHz

[14:33] <SpeedEvil> yes, something like that
[14:33] <SpeedEvil> though that is expensive
[14:33] <cehteh> well you can always but the DCDC regulator to 6V and add some ldo behind to massage it to 5V, thats simple and still efficient
[14:34] <ozzzy> cehteh, that's how I run my arduino nanos
[14:34] <ozzzy> LM317 to Vin at about 6.5V

[14:40] <cehteh> for regulation i use the modules, but the battery watchdog is what i made
[14:42] <mun> is the voltage of the GPIO pins 5V or 3.3V?
[14:42] <AirForce590> don't batteries have intenral protection
[14:43] <AirForce590> mun: 5v i believe
[14:43] <mun> AirForce590: hmm but google gives me 3.3V
[14:43] <AirForce590> maybe
[14:43] <SpeedEvil> AirForce590: No, batteries do not have internal protection.
[14:43] <mun> GPIO outputs are easy; they are on or off, HIGH or LOW, 3v3 or 0v.
[14:43] <SpeedEvil> The GPIOs are 3.3V. Applying 5V may kill them
[14:43] <mun> https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/gpio/
[14:43] <mun> hmm
[14:44] <SpeedEvil> AirForce590: Some batteries might have protection circuits added - these are usually sold as 'protected'

[17:13] <tawr> i came in late, what are you trying to do?

[17:14] <AirForce590> I just can't find a dc-dc with 3A output
[17:14] <tawr> hmm, for robots it would probably be better
[17:14] <tawr> to just run 2 cells in series, then use a dc-dc stepdown
[17:14] <tawr> or see if it can handle that voltage, and only pull the 5v for things that need 5v, and run the motors+controllers on the higher voltage

[18:27] <ali1234> what is refered to as the "framebuffer" on linux is just a surface

[18:28] <jer> i mean i can do all this in software, but was hoping for some hardware support =]
[18:28] <ali1234> so anyway what you'd do is give each process it's own surface. they wouldn't be able to draw in each other's surfaces because they wouldn't know where they are in memory

[18:34] <ali1234> there's no single piece of memory that represents "all the pixels on the screen"
[18:35] <ali1234> unless you create one, which is what the linux framebuffer thing is
[18:35] <ali1234> but there's no need to do it that way
[18:35] <jer> yeah i have one of those atm, but i'm not married to it =]
[18:35] <ali1234> if you give each process it's own surface, you give it a surface the size of the area you want to give it
[18:35] <jer> what i really want is to isolate parts of the screen from modification by external processes

[18:37] <ali1234> surfaces don't have to be "the whole screen" - they can just cover part of it. they are automatically scaled too
[18:38] <ali1234> so you don't divide up one buffer between the processes. each one has it's own private buffer. then the compositor decides which ones are visible

[18:38] <jer> ali1234, ah ok, that makes sense

[18:44] <TheLostAdmin> ali1234, what actually runs on Wayland at this point? I haven't dug very deep I'm just using the default install of raspbian. I'm not even sure how to tell.
[18:45] <ali1234> Qt, Gtk... what else do you need?
[18:45] * woo2 (~woo2@unaffiliated/woo2) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:45] * ynonp (~ynonperek@ has joined #raspberrypi
[18:45] <ali1234> but the real answer is no real desktop can run on Wayland on the pi, because only Weston was ported and it's a toy at best
[18:46] <ali1234> however if you don't need a full desktop environment it could be a very good choice
[18:46] <TheLostAdmin> I was thinking more along the lines of end-user applications since I rarely need to dig down to the library levels unless I need to compile myself.
[18:46] * ynonp (~ynonperek@ Quit (Client Quit)
[18:46] <TheLostAdmin> But, thanks
[18:47] <ali1234> applications should run if they are written in Gtk or Qt and they don't use X11 features directly
[18:47] <ali1234> assuming you build Gtk or Qt with Wayland support, i don't know if default raspbian does that
[18:48] <ali1234> needs modern Gtk/Qt too of course. Gtk2 will not work
[18:49] <ali1234> contrary to popular belief, Wayland is not a drop-in replacement for X, it works very differently and requires the toolkits to provide a lot more features

[18:54] <TheLostAdmin> I knew Wayland wasn't X and so something had to happen somewhere for applications to work with it. But I still don't know how to tell or if there is enough Wayland supporting applications for my needs.
[18:55] <ali1234> applications aren't the problem; the problem is the desktop shell/window manager stuff
[18:55] <ali1234> under X there is no difference between applications and window managers etc

[21:37] <heller\> http://pastebin.com/rHEkyQCg
[21:38] <ali1234> looks good
[21:38] <heller\> its using interrupt?
[21:38] <ali1234> yes
[21:38] <heller\> thought so :)
[21:38] <heller\> thats the code i was testing it with
[21:38] <ali1234> i hope so anyway
[21:39] <heller\> if it was RISING, and the blinkin was fast, i got double results
[21:39] <heller\> fixed it with changing it to FALLING
[21:39] <ali1234> put a delay in to the loop
[21:39] <heller\> i had o'scope measuring it, and the was no reason for my understanding
[21:39] <heller\> i cant put a delay? it could miss blinks?
[21:39] <ali1234> not if the delay is short
[21:40] <ali1234> your watt meter blinks every time a watt hour is used right?
[21:40] <heller\> well it can blink very vast
[21:40] <heller\> no
[21:40] <ali1234> it's a home electricity meter
[21:40] <heller\> 10000imp/kwh
[21:40] <heller\> yes
[21:40] <ali1234> so 1 blink every 0.1 watt hours?
[21:40] <heller\> it blinks like hell when its something like 15kW usage
[21:40] <ali1234> if you can even see that it is blinking then it is not blinking fast
[21:41] <heller\> i cant see it with my eye
[21:41] <heller\> oscope yes
[21:41] <heller\> but that is not the point anymore, i got it counting ok
[21:41] <heller\> now i just need a code to do the math :)
[21:42] <ali1234> 15kw = 45 blinks per second?
[21:42] <heller\> i guess
[21:42] <ali1234> that's 22msec between blinks
[21:43] <heller\> how did you count it :p

[21:44] <ali1234> get the current time before the loop starts
[21:44] <heller\> i was thinking of counting amount of blinks between 60 seconds and then dividing by 10000
[21:44] <ali1234> and do while (current time - start time) < 1 second:
[21:44] <heller\> yes thats about what im trying to do

[23:10] <heller\> 27ms gives me 11242W
[23:10] <heller\> no, 11232W
[23:10] <ali1234> yes, try 17
[23:11] <heller\> ok
[23:11] <heller\> what should it be?
[23:11] <ali1234> 15000
[23:11] <ali1234> because 17 + 5 = 22
[23:11] <heller\> right
[23:12] <heller\> ali1234: if i fall asleep, ill thank you now :P

[23:13] <ali1234> wat
[23:13] <ali1234> extra digit?
[23:13] <heller\> oops
[23:13] <heller\> 16332.0
[23:13] <ali1234> well there is some rounding involved
[23:14] * kayatwork (~kayfox@orca.zerda.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[23:14] <heller\> its over 1kWh wrong :p
[23:14] <ali1234> 1 hour / 22 milliseconds = 163 636.364 so it is pretty close
[23:14] <heller\> you said 15000 :)

[23:15] <ali1234> try 19 on 5 off, that should give exactly 15000W
[23:16] <ali1234> i can't math today for some reason
[23:16] <SpeedEvil> Open video fevice with 160:120, format greyscale only, 10fps, filter it to 1:1 pixel in the apprpriate size - hardup makes it exactly 10fps even if missing frames, nosound is obvious , rawvideo makes it a raw video stream, and ovc raw tell sit ti just dump a file raw
[23:16] <heller\> ali1234: ill try that and then 23/2 to see if it makes any difference
[23:17] <greyscale> I AM SUMMONED
[23:17] <greyscale> WRONG NUMBER?

[23:17] <SpeedEvil> Actually, double false alarm, I don't think y8 is greyscale
[23:18] <ali1234> it is
[23:18] <greyscale> :A Stahp.

[23:18] <heller\> 14967.0
[23:18] <heller\> ill see for one more result
[23:18] <heller\> then 23/2 and then sleep
[23:19] <heller\> way too long up already
[23:19] <ali1234> 23 off 2 on = 25ms
[23:19] <ali1234> should give 14400W
[23:20] * DimeBag (~llorllale@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:21] <ali1234> try changing the sample_time as well
[23:21] <ali1234> it should become more accurate with a longer time
[23:21] <ali1234> but obviously it takes longer :)

[23:21] * llorllale (~llorllale@ Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[23:21] <heller\> its now 22/2
[23:22] <heller\> gives me 13854.0
[23:22] <ali1234> this isn't going to be super accurate with python
[23:22] <ali1234> i could miss impulses if it is not fast enough
[23:23] <ali1234> also it will never sample for exactly the sampling period
[23:23] <heller\> true
[23:24] <SpeedEvil> ali1234: you don't sample like that
[23:24] <ali1234> what you really want to do is measure the time between consecutive impulses
[23:24] <SpeedEvil> you watch each pulse, and then compute power since last pulse
[23:24] <ali1234> right
[23:24] <SpeedEvil> And if you're lazy, you then treat it as power till next pulse
[23:25] * giddles (~sag@unaffiliated/giddles) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[23:25] <SpeedEvil> The above is great as it offloads all the timeing to mplayer, and you simply parse the output file at your leisure.
[23:25] <heller\> well at this opint im happy with ths :)
[23:25] <SpeedEvil> :)
[23:25] <SpeedEvil> Of course...
[23:26] <heller\> ill have test sample rates etc tomorrow :)

[23:26] <ali1234> AVR/arduino is MUCH better suited to this task
[23:26] <SpeedEvil> Outputs nice actual watts every six seconds
[23:26] <SpeedEvil> and has a simple documented XML format
[23:26] <heller\> thanks people
[23:26] <SpeedEvil> And supports plug sensors too
[23:26] <SpeedEvil> Wackily - they even have parts on ebay
[23:26] <ali1234> is that an inductive coupled one? cos i heard those are inaccurate too

[23:29] <ali1234> the problem with measuring power between pulses is that it's hard to get that type of accurate timing from python and you have to measure constantly or miss spikes
[23:30] <SpeedEvil> ali1234: I measured and compared with the actual meter, and got ~2% out
[23:30] <SpeedEvil> ali1234: Which is good enough for me

[23:54] <HtheB> as you know, I failed to do the potentiometer to change brightness of the pitft
[23:54] <HtheB> so, I was thinking to use buttons instead
[23:55] <HtheB> the PiTFT comes with 4 buttons below the screen
[23:55] <HtheB> at the moment, the first button is set to "shut down"
[23:56] <HtheB> I was thinking: can I change it to use the first 2 buttons to change brightness, and the other 2 buttons to change volume?
[23:56] * iamjarvo (~textual@c-69-249-187-177.hsd1.pa.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:56] <ali1234> not really
[23:57] <ali1234> you can only turn the backlight on and off in software
[23:57] <HtheB> >.<
[23:57] <HtheB> see, thats why i feel bad :P
[23:57] <ali1234> you could turn it on and off very fast but that will be hard on the cpu

[23:58] <HtheB> but it didnt work
[23:58] <ali1234> did you turn off the backlight in the controller?
[23:58] <HtheB> yup, but somehow, it doesnt turn off (anymore?)

[23:58] <HtheB> let me see if it does now (I removed that 555 circuit board)
[23:58] <ali1234> maybe you connected the potentiometer wrong?
