[19:42] <gordonDrogon> my basic interpreter has 2 complete sections for 16-bit vs 32 bit graphics - the Pi is only 16-bit ...
[19:44] <JakeSays> interesting. the ili9341 driver supports 565

[19:47] <gordonDrogon> hm. that's spi - tricky, but not impossible to hook up to the Pi.
[19:47] <jancoow> spi is fine too :)
[19:48] <jancoow> 10bit resolution is fine for simple pot meters

[20:00] <g0z> hello, I was wondering if anyone could amazon link me to a 3.5mm to composite out cable that is known to work with rpi?
[20:02] <traeak> why wouldn't any old rca out cable work?
[20:03] <g0z> because they don't
[20:03] <zleap> the one from modmypi is something like 1.99 and works
[20:03] <g0z> I'll check it
[20:03] <g0z> thanks
[20:04] <gordonDrogon> jancoow, it's a mux - you still need the ADC.

[20:19] <heller_> so when you plug off ethernet from rpi, it does not get it back when i plug it back?
[20:20] <jancoow> it does
[20:20] <jancoow> gordonDrogon: oh my bad.
[20:21] <heller_> jancoow: how?
[20:21] <heller_> and when?
[20:21] <t3chguy> heller_: depends how you have it configured
[20:21] <heller_> well how do i have to configure it?

[20:21] <heller_> it is
[20:22] <heller_> how long should it take?

[20:34] <Guy1524> hey guys, so is it possible to transmit video through ethernet directly into a raspberry pi and have the raspberry pi turn it into hdmi output for a tv?
[20:34] <Guy1524>
[20:34] <Guy1524>
[20:34] * ShapeShifter499 (~ShapeShif@unaffiliated/shapeshifter499) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[20:35] <Guy1524> sorry for the spam, I didn't know it would send a message with nothing
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> Guy1524, what do you think...
[20:35] <t3chguy> its called video streaming, so, sure
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> youtube, vimeo, etc. ...
[20:35] <danieli> "turn it into hdmi"... you could simply stream video with vlc and display it there
[20:35] <danieli> hahaha
[20:35] <Guy1524> yes, but it would not be over a network, one end of the ethernet in a pc, and one end in the raspberry pi
[20:35] <gordonDrogon> that sounds like a network to me.
[20:36] <Guy1524> ok?
[20:36] <Guy1524> so how would I automatically turn take the ethernet input and then output it in hdmi form to a tv?
[20:37] <Guy1524>
[20:37] <t3chguy> use some video streaming protocol
[20:37] <gordonDrogon> or just copy the file.
[20:37] <Guy1524> when I search all I find are adapters
[20:38] <t3chguy> its not a hardware thing
[20:38] <t3chguy> its a software thing
[20:38] <Guy1524> i know
[20:38] <t3chguy> use VLC
[20:38] <t3chguy> I believe it can handle both the streaming and the receiving of video
[20:38] * howdoi (uid224@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-xqusdzqeloppkycz) Quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
[20:38] <Guy1524> ok, so VLC will recognize the ethernet as an input stream?
[20:38] <t3chguy> no
[20:38] <t3chguy> it will see a network
[20:38] <t3chguy> and on the network will be another computer
[20:38] <t3chguy> with VLC
[20:38] <t3chguy> sending the video stream
[20:39] <Guy1524> oh ok
[20:39] <t3chguy> then the raspberry pi can connect to the video stream using VLC
[20:39] <Guy1524> oh ok
[20:39] <Guy1524> thanks

[21:05] <jancoow> nice!
[21:05] <jancoow> which one
[21:05] * TooLmaN (~TooLmaN@mx1.thomsonplastics.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:06] <Lyka> i haven't mentioned it yet
[21:06] <TooLmaN> What is the preferred method for removing the CONSOLE (non-X) screen blanking?
[21:07] <Lyka> i used to know it
[21:08] <TooLmaN> Changing the /etc/kbd/config variables do not seem to affect it.
[21:08] * justgettingup (17f24525@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[21:08] <Lyka> did you get both?
[21:08] <justgettingup> hello
[21:08] <Lyka> there are two
[21:08] <TooLmaN> I have this working if X is running using xset, but I do not have a solution for console only setups
[21:08] <justgettingup> so ive estimated minimum cost of getting up an running with a pi 2 is about $80?
[21:08] * eXtremo (~eXtremo@unaffiliated/extremo) Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[21:09] <t3chguy> justgettingup: how did you get to that
[21:09] * g0z (gauze@bitchx/distort/g0z) has left #raspberrypi
[21:09] <justgettingup> $35 pi, $10 charger, $6 hdmi cable, $10 sdcard, $10 case
[21:09] <TooLmaN> justgettingup: that's close. power, SD card, USB cable, etc.
[21:09] <justgettingup> whatver that ads up to
[21:09] <t3chguy> Case isn't required
[21:09] <t3chguy> nor is a HDMI Cable
[21:09] <justgettingup> well this is a gift
[21:09] <t3chguy> and the RPi 2 has no battery, so the Charger isn't a charger, more a PSU
[21:10] <Lyka> hdmi cable helps
[21:10] <t3chguy> Lyka: depends
[21:10] <justgettingup> im trying to replicate this setup
[21:10] <t3chguy> if you want to deploy it in a project, then it probably won't
[21:10] <Lyka> hard for a new user to configure it non-x
[21:10] <t3chguy> justgettingup: why don't you go for the $5 Pi Zero?
[21:10] <justgettingup> http://us.kano.me/products/kano-kit
[21:11] <justgettingup> its $99 but they put on $20 shipping
[21:11] <Lyka> the zero is always sold out, t3chguy
[21:11] <t3chguy> Lyka: it was in stock today
[21:11] <justgettingup> that speaker is cool though
[21:11] <t3chguy> I bought my 2nd one today
[21:11] <TooLmaN> So does anyone know how to effectively disable console screen blanking?
[21:11] <Lyka> yes, but i don't remember the file names
[21:12] <Lyka> so i can't help
[21:12] * eXtremo (~eXtremo@unaffiliated/extremo) has joined #raspberrypi

[21:13] <TooLmaN> Yes, I'm sure

[21:16] <justgettingup> where?
[21:16] <Lyka> TooLmaN: remember to reboot
[21:16] <justgettingup> oh you mean a regular pi
[21:17] <TooLmaN> Lyka: The kbd/config changes are not working on the 4.x kernel now it seems
[21:17] <Lyka> pi 2b
[21:17] <justgettingup> yeah your right
[21:17] <Lyka> i got it working...
[21:17] <justgettingup> id like a speaker/case lid combo thats very clever
[21:17] * Jusii (~jalanara@nblzone-224-48.nblnetworks.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:17] <justgettingup> does the audio out power a regular toy speaker?
[21:17] <TooLmaN> This is a fresh install of the minimal raspbian image
[21:18] <Lyka> why do you want a less powerful zero 5o start out with? i do not understand
[21:18] <Lyka> *to
[21:19] <TooLmaN> justgettingup: the audio output is speaker level, not line level
[21:19] <TooLmaN> so it will power a small speaker but will require boosting for more sound
[21:19] <TooLmaN> Or powered speakers
[21:20] <justgettingup> http://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Running-adapter--6ft-Ethernet-Heatsink/dp/B013TG5S44/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1451333936&sr=8-6&keywords=pi+2
[21:20] <justgettingup> that looks good. not sure what the phone cables are good for
[21:20] * somis (~somis@ has joined #raspberrypi
[21:20] <t3chguy> Lyka: because it is unique in many ways
[21:21] <t3chguy> It can act as an OTG Host or Slave and is tiny

[21:23] <t3chguy> Lyka: yes, but the raspberry pi has many uses that the zero is better for
[21:23] * Xeek (~xeek@unaffiliated/xeek) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:23] <t3chguy> The only thing the 2b is better for is as a regular computer
[21:24] <justgettingup> so is it true you can plug in the zero in a laptop usb and it will get power and wifi and usb all for free now

[21:27] * speeddragon (~speeddrag@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[21:28] <justgettingup> apparently with a kernal update on the zero you can plug it into usb from laptop and it should get everything
[21:28] <Lyka> everything?
[21:28] <exonormal> yes, Lyka... you can solder anything on that board as you like
[21:28] <justgettingup> i havent tried it yet but that would mean the zero would be like a usb drive with a full linux on it
[21:29] <Lyka> exonormal: i mean that the headers don't come attached
[21:29] <exonormal> yes
[21:30] <exonormal> you can solder them on for your convenience
[21:30] <Mr_Sheesh> so I could get a 60-port powered USB hub & shazam I have a Pi0 cluster?
[21:30] <TooLmaN> The Pi Zero is a major time saver for certain projects. I have painfully removed jacks and such from a couple of B+
[21:31] <Mr_Sheesh> cost saver too
[21:31] <Mr_Sheesh> only its unobtanium for a lil while yet
[21:31] <TooLmaN> yeah, I guess those jacks are expensive. lol
[21:31] <justgettingup> 60 port lol

[22:03] <frikinz> Hi. I had a pi 2 years ago and remembered having problems under high network load. I had kernel messages but I can't remember which ones (smc something?). Anyone knows what I'm talking about or if its still there?
[22:03] <jancoow> yes?
[22:04] <TheLostAdmin> frikinz, I don't believe there's been any re-design of the Pi2. So, unless your issues were software related or just a bad board, I would expect the problem is still there.
[22:05] * Tourist (~Tourist@unaffiliated/tourist) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:06] <frikinz> TheLostAdmin: yes i suspect its a problem in the soc and at the time was confirmed by other people running network heavy process like tor or using the pi as a network gateway

[22:43] <t3chguy> justgettingup: the Zero can be an OTG Device
[22:44] <t3chguy> you can compile and configure kernel modules to have it share network from the USB Host its plugged into
[22:44] <t3chguy> and no justgettingup, you won't get video etc
[22:44] <t3chguy> but you can get network, serial, midi etc
[22:45] <justgettingup> so in other words you can get online with it?
[22:45] <t3chguy> through USB, sure
[22:45] <t3chguy> you can also get an SPI Ethernet port for it
[22:45] <t3chguy> which is what I do
[22:45] <t3chguy> its faster than Ethernet over OTG in my tests
[22:46] <t3chguy> enc28j60 is what I use
[22:47] * Anaxyn (Anaxyn@botters/Xenthys/bot/Anaxyn) Quit (Quit: brb code update, should be good)
[22:47] <justgettingup> so i can plug in my zero with a micro usb to my laptop port and i can get it online finally?
[22:47] <t3chguy> it can basically do the same things as an Android phone plugged into a PC (Except MHL)

[22:48] <t3chguy> lol

[22:48] * Anaxyn (Anaxyn@botters/Xenthys/bot/Anaxyn) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:48] <t3chguy> you have to install a new kernel on the Zero, enable all the modules

[22:48] <t3chguy> ICS on the Host, not IP Sharing*
[22:48] <t3chguy> I had it running before
[22:50] <justgettingup> but once you do it you can have an image for any zero right?
[22:50] <justgettingup> so someone just needs to make that img
[22:50] <justgettingup> and have the wifi config stuff on the boot directory
[22:50] <t3chguy> configuration-wise?
[22:50] <t3chguy> erm
[22:50] * TheAbraxas (~TheAbraxa@ip98-176-95-77.sd.sd.cox.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:50] <t3chguy> the Zero doesn't get the Wifi capabilities
[22:50] <t3chguy> it just has Ethernet-level shared network
[22:51] <justgettingup> what does that mean? it leaches off the latop connection
[22:51] <t3chguy> yes
[22:51] <justgettingup> thats perfectly fine
[22:51] <t3chguy> the laptop has to handle passing the internet over USB
[22:51] <t3chguy> the Zero doesn't know or care how
[22:51] <justgettingup> is there a webpage or video on this?

[22:55] <jridder> Hello, does anyone know what the maximum memory you can have available on the pi zero?
[22:56] <t3chguy> jridder: as in Storage Memory?
[22:56] <t3chguy> the RAM is non-upgradable, so thats at 512MB
[22:56] <jridder> Thanks, I mean split between video and OS.
[22:57] <t3chguy> thats configurable
[22:57] <jridder> can you set video to 0?
[22:57] <t3chguy> no
[22:57] <t3chguy> actually
[22:57] <t3chguy> if you disable the GPU entirely, maybe
[22:57] <t3chguy> but then it'd be truly headless
[22:58] <jridder> I have mine headless and was wondering how low you could go on video memory. I guess 16mb it is.
[22:59] <brianx> interesting thought. if you figure out how to disable the GPU after boot and use all ram for the OS, please let us know here.

[23:00] <t3chguy> from a quick google search
[23:00] <t3chguy> it doesn't seem possible
[23:00] <t3chguy> someone claimed that the GPU essentially boots the Pi
[23:00] <t3chguy> "At one level, the GPU (in combination with config.txt) has a similar job to your desktop computer's BIOS. At another level, it has many other jobs too ;)"
[23:01] <jridder> I think I kind of remember reading that as well someplace else on the boot sequence.
[23:02] <vok`> Hi, I just loaded Jessie to an SD card and my TV says "Resolution not supported"

[23:04] <vok`> jridder, is ssh installed by default?
[23:05] <jridder> yes
[23:05] <trix`G> I've been working on it for three days now and I can get Nexuiz to run smooth on the rpi finally but only a 1.5 year old version of it on an abandoned 2 year old modified darkplaces binary that has no source released
[23:05] <vok`> jridder, I just scanned for it with nmap and it's not there.
[23:06] <jridder> how is it connected to your network?
[23:06] <trix`G> I'm just wondering if I might be reinventing the wheel here or if anyone else has tried this

[23:07] <vok`> sisel4, do you know how I can change the resolution so it works with my TV?
[23:09] <t3chguy> jancoow: its basic Linux
[23:09] <t3chguy> all Android phones have that module installed
[23:09] <t3chguy> when you plug it into a PC you can enable g_mass_storage, g_serial (adb?) and g_ether
[23:10] <jancoow> yeah
[23:10] <jancoow> but with old raspberry pi's it wasn't possible
[23:10] <jancoow> and on which port is it actually? the otg port or charge port?
[23:10] <t3chguy> jancoow: thats because they didn't have the hardware for it
[23:10] <t3chguy> the OTG Port
[23:10] <jancoow> it wasn't connected
[23:10] <t3chguy> well, yes
[23:10] <jridder> vok`, http://www.raspians.com/Knowledgebase/raspberry-pi-configuration-file/ read down to hdmi_mode
[23:10] <t3chguy> the port is hardware too xD
[23:11] <jancoow> yeah i mean
[23:11] <jancoow> on the old rpi was the otg pin not connected to the charge port
[23:11] <t3chguy> which is silly
[23:11] <t3chguy> I mean, why isn't it
[23:11] <jancoow> indeed
[23:11] <t3chguy> like what loss is there
[23:11] <sisel4> jridder: isn't it just a xorg issue? he has screen in console.
[23:11] <jancoow> i though the same
[23:11] <jancoow> btw i added a screen https://jancokock.me/f/49df3/49df3
[23:11] <t3chguy> means you could use it as a neat SD Card reader using g_mass_storage xD
[23:11] <t3chguy> that definitely looks neat jancoow
[23:12] <t3chguy> what sort of display is that
[23:12] <jridder> I used to have a weird monitor and didn't like certain resolutions, I always had to force it.
[23:12] <jancoow> it doesn't look neat, i will design a 3d printed cover soon :)
[23:12] <t3chguy> not neat as in tidy
[23:12] <t3chguy> neat as in cool
[23:12] <jancoow> oh
