[0:00] <GreeningGalaxy> I can get my keyboard working just fine, I just have to manually connect to it every time... with a keyboard. >_<
[0:00] <Valduare> you have to trust it
[0:00] <Valduare> then it will auto reconnect
[0:00] <Valduare> mine I have to tap spacebar and then it connects
[0:00] <GreeningGalaxy> hmm
[0:01] <GreeningGalaxy> I already tried trusting it and it appeared to do absolutely nothing, but I admittedly haven't tried tapping spacebar
[0:01] * vishwin (~alliek@wikimedia/O) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:01] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:02] <GreeningGalaxy> nope. :V
[0:02] <GreeningGalaxy> what I keep finding is that rebooting with the keyboard still paired does not work at all - bluetoothctl says it's connected and the pairing light stops flashing, but then it simply doesn't work at all after that
[0:03] <GreeningGalaxy> I have to completely unpair it and then repair it before it works again
[0:03] <GreeningGalaxy> I'd be happy to write a script for that, but bluetoothctl seems almost like it's intentionally made that impossible.
[0:03] <Valduare> odd
[0:03] <Valduare> mine works
[0:04] * clonak (~clonak@118-93-59-148.dsl.dyn.ihug.co.nz) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:04] <GreeningGalaxy> mine is some piece of junk ostensibly designed for the old nexus 7, so I'm unsurprised, I'm just mad that the new version of bluez appears to have thwarted any hope I might've had for workarounds
[0:05] <Valduare> mine is a cheap 16 dollar keyboard/touchpad combo off amazon
[0:05] <GreeningGalaxy> it's frustrating when it works fine after manual configuration but not automatically.
[0:05] <Valduare> that tells me its a trust issue
[0:05] <DWKnight> GreeningGalaxy: one for the tilapia/grouper variant n7?
[0:05] * Svardskampe (~Svardskam@185-14-ftth.onsnetstudenten.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:05] <GreeningGalaxy> grouper, yeah
[0:06] <DWKnight> cheapo thing off ebay that survives falls from 4ft in spite of frame separation
[0:06] <Valduare> woo my instructable is about to top 2000 hits
[0:06] <DWKnight> I've got a tilapia variant n7 with one of those
[0:06] <DWKnight> good times
[0:06] <GreeningGalaxy> If all else fails, I guess I can probably write a script that physically types stuff into bluetoothctl with xdotool, but that seems unnecessarily janky
[0:06] * clonak (~clonak@118-93-59-148.dsl.dyn.ihug.co.nz) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:09] <Valduare> so I got this radioshack psu 12v with a switch and a pair of power connectors on the face of it
[0:09] <Valduare> but it stopped working I cant find any burn marks or distended caps on the board
[0:09] <Valduare> fuses still has ohm reading...
[0:09] * GreeningGalaxy (~ellie@ Quit (Quit: WeeChat 1.4)
[0:09] <Valduare> 0 voltage to the front panel
[0:09] <Valduare> any ideas?
[0:10] * netzfisch (~Thunderbi@x55b063cc.dyn.telefonica.de) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:11] <DWKnight> get progressively closer to the AC from the output connectors until you find the fault is about all

[0:30] <sir_galahad_ad> hi
[0:30] <ffledgling> So I've been looking around the interwebz for a Plex Media server package I can run on my RPi model B, with little luck, anyone seen anything of the sort in the wild?
[0:32] * codestorm (~codestorm@cpe-76-94-72-91.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:35] <kookie> Valduare: is the transformer putting out any voltage?
[0:35] <Valduare> im not sure
[0:36] <Valduare> hard to poke around in here with probes
[0:36] * puzzola (~puzzola@unaffiliated/puzzola) Quit (Quit: reboot)
[0:36] <kookie> look for where the transformer connects to board
[0:36] * codestorm (~codestorm@cpe-76-94-72-91.socal.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:37] <Valduare> there is one black and white wire coming off of it vissibly
[0:37] <Valduare> the other 2 must be underneath the thing eh
[0:37] <kookie> I see
[0:37] <kookie> do you see diodes?
[0:37] <Valduare> 2
[0:38] <EdwardTurner> hi guys..
[0:38] <kookie> ok, check the voltage on those
[0:38] * puzzola (~puzzola@unaffiliated/puzzola) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:38] <EdwardTurner> does someone know how many devices a bluetooth dongle can handle?
[0:38] * Kimbernator (~kimbernat@c-76-28-215-142.hsd1.wa.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:39] <kookie> me not, but you can try as many as you like...
[0:39] <pksato> EdwardTurner: Is limited by Bt protocol.
[0:40] <pksato> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth#Communication_and_connection
[0:40] <Valduare> meter set on 20 dc and getting 0.01 blips
[0:40] <Valduare> on D1
[0:41] <Valduare> D3 swings between 12v and 14v
[0:41] <EdwardTurner> hmm.. ok. thank you!
[0:41] <Valduare> its suppose to output 13.8V it states
[0:42] <pksato> Valduare: measuring correct points?
[0:42] * duckpuppy (~patrickai@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:42] <Valduare> we are trying to figure out whats wrong with this radioshack benchtop power supply
[0:43] <Valduare> no voltage to the front panel ports
[0:44] <pksato> fuse?
[0:44] <kookie> Valduare: look for some replacement diodes from your junk puter PSU's
[0:44] <Valduare> fuse has ohms
[0:44] <kookie> and replace both diodes
[0:45] <kookie> how many ohms?
[0:45] <kookie> suppose to be zero
[0:45] <pksato> fuse have a 0 Ohms.
[0:45] <Valduare> 01.5
[0:45] <pksato> or teste cable resistance.
[0:46] <kookie> is fuse removable?
[0:46] <Valduare> if something has 0 ohm its not connected ie blown fuse wouldnt it?
[0:46] <Valduare> in anycase D3 has a voltage reading at it
[0:46] <Valduare> so the fuse isnt blown
[0:46] * whitby (~whitby@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:46] <pksato> switch mode psu is pain to find defective part.
[0:47] <kookie> depends
[0:47] * duckpuppy (~patrickai@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[0:47] <pksato> check if diode still is a diode
[0:47] <kookie> diode may be on the neu side and will read
[0:47] <kookie> right
[0:47] <ruurd> pksato look at the condensators
[0:48] * EdwardTurner (~edwardtur@ip1f105b98.dynamic.kabel-deutschland.de) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:49] <pksato> Another day I spent few hours to repair a DVR PSU.
[0:50] <Valduare> could always salvage some resisters from this thing to make a dummy load and build an atx power supply heh
[0:50] <Valduare> to get 3.3 5 and 12
[0:50] <Valduare> would be more useful
[0:51] <kookie> yes, most ppl do it that way
[0:51] <ShorTie> just duct tape an old cdrom on .. :/~
[0:51] <kookie> most cases the diodes fail...
[0:52] * Kimbernator (~kimbernat@c-76-28-215-142.hsd1.wa.comcast.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:52] <Valduare> how do I test that
[0:52] <pksato> When I was about to give up, I decide to check close a diode with some "dust" on encapsulation.
[0:52] <pksato> It was cracked.
[0:52] <kookie> see if you get reading from them
[0:52] <pksato> Electrical ok.
[0:53] <pksato> https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5L3CNBbcpi4/Vq06M_xYWvI/AAAAAAAADxI/JNUGoKeGlo4/s800-Ic42/fonte_dvr_hasf1205000-06.jpg
[0:53] <Valduare> black to stripe side right?
[0:53] <kookie> yes
[0:54] <pksato> Replaced this diode and a 10uF capacitor, and psu worked.
[0:54] <kookie> hey that's a sweet looking one... lol
[0:54] <Valduare> D1 gets 0.01
[0:54] <Valduare> D3 gets 12-14v
[0:55] <kookie> is there a D2 and D4?

[0:56] <pksato> Valduare: without schemactic, is not possible
[0:56] <Valduare> D2 looks more like a mosfet package
[0:56] <pksato> It is not possible to determine if theses voltages are correct.

[1:06] <Valduare> so looks like there was recal on this unit psu
[1:07] <Valduare> but mine has the fix done to it already apparently the white and black spade terminal wires were switched from factory
[1:07] <Valduare> but they are on right sides for mine

[1:11] <kookie> must be they did it at factory before hitting market
[1:13] <kookie> oh well... if you can, read what the transformer is putting out in AC on the secondary side, the output.
[1:13] * cave (~various@h081217073183.dyn.cm.kabsi.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:23] <Valduare> i’ll see if I can get a reading on the two wires that are visible
[1:24] <Valduare> hmm cant get probes in there
[1:25] <kookie> use a couple of wires as probes
[1:26] <Valduare> the insulation is jammed flat to the pcb

[1:57] * GreeningGalaxy (~ellie@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:58] <GreeningGalaxy> I'm still having trouble with my bluetooth keyboard. it flatly refuses to work until I unpair it and repair it, which is tedious (and doesn't appear to be capable of being automated)
[1:58] <Valduare> GreeningGalaxy: are you on jessie
[1:58] <GreeningGalaxy> yes
[1:59] <Valduare> so odd
[1:59] <GreeningGalaxy> can I downgrade to the version of bluez that doesn't have this bluetoothctl thing?
[1:59] * RebelCoder (~Yuriy@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:59] <Valduare> bluetoothctl works for me
[1:59] <Valduare> do you have a diff bluetooth dongle to try
[1:59] <GreeningGalaxy> nope
[1:59] <Valduare> I have a cirago combo wifi/bluetooth dongle
[2:01] <GreeningGalaxy> I have some supercheap one, but seriously, if it works when configured manually, why shouldn't it work automatically?
[2:01] * sir_galahad_ad (~aaron@cpe-76-178-229-105.maine.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:02] <GreeningGalaxy> as I see it, the main thing standing in my way is that I need to write a script to re-pair it on every boot, and I simply cannot do that with bluetoothctl for some reason
[2:02] <Valduare> is it possible you botched something on install
[2:02] <Valduare> pop a new sd card in there and fresh install to compare
[2:02] <Valduare> then you know for sure its not the adapter dongle and a config
[2:03] <GreeningGalaxy> I find it highly unlikely given the circumstances, and i also lack the resources to do that righ tnow
[2:06] <Valduare> you can dd an img of your current card
[2:06] <Valduare> and then start fresh
[2:06] <Valduare> then dd it back
[2:07] * hubutm20 (~hubutm20@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:07] <GreeningGalaxy> I don't have an SD to microSD adapter at my disposal right now, so I'm stuck with what I have
[2:07] <GreeningGalaxy> and seriously, if it were an install problem, why would bluetooth work when manually configured?

[3:40] <Mr_Sheesh> lengtche I imagine you'd definitely want a powered hub, I imagine you could damage the Pi0's PC board if you tried that
[3:41] <pksato> hub yes, but full load hub not.
[3:42] <lengtche> Mr_Sheesh Good call.
[3:42] <pksato> hub, mouse, keyboard, ethernet and a pendrive probably is ok.
[3:42] <lengtche> I was planning on putting a mouse, keyboard, and USB WiFi dongl.

[3:42] <Mr_Sheesh> Minorly risky but those 3 might be OK - So long as the total load is under 500mA or so
[3:43] <Mr_Sheesh> I just always use powered hubs as they're so cheap that I have "many", 2 spare 10-port ones here now
[3:43] <lengtche> Are you saying 500mA from experience or is that something that is documented?
[3:43] <pksato> 500mA is max current of a USB port.
[3:44] <Mr_Sheesh> Yep
[3:44] * duckpuppy (~patrickai@h141.209.132.40.static.ip.windstream.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:45] <Mr_Sheesh> So just don't overdraw the 500 mA that the only port on that Pi0 is designed for, and should be fine
[3:45] <Mr_Sheesh> (I think Steve, local guy, said that there's no polyfuse etc. on there, but not certain)
[3:46] <pksato> I dont have a Zero to check if pcb tracks are enough to support high current.
[3:47] <pksato> zero can backpower from usb.
[3:47] <Mr_Sheesh> Should be mentioned on the forums etc.
[3:47] <Mr_Sheesh> Hmm that'd be a nice lil trick too

[4:58] <bberg> I'm sifting thru the subreddit, but i figured it was worth asking as I look... part of my project checks to see if someone is home or not. I figured a cell phone would be best with either GPS or checking to see if they are connected to WiFi. Anyone have a suggestion?

[5:01] <Mr_Sheesh> bberg, I would be careful who you let know whether someone's home or not, it'd be tough if your system ended up telling burglar types when to strike
[5:03] <bberg> Mr_Sheesh: yea, i see that being a portential issue. I assumed that if I was just pinging to see if someone was using a static ip on my router, that wouldn't be an issue. The idea is to turn on a little LED
[5:03] <Valduare> why that one specifically
[5:03] <exonormal> has everything
[5:03] <exonormal> including the Uno
[5:04] <exonormal> LCD screen
[5:04] <exonormal> breadboard

[5:06] <sir_galahad_ad> my pi kit came with less than that and didn't include the pi but cost about the same

[5:07] * Taylor (~Taylor@unaffiliated/taylor) has joined #raspberrypi

[5:10] <exonormal> that pi kit looked plentie sassie...
[5:10] <sir_galahad_ad> sassie?
[5:11] <exonormal> pretty good...
[5:11] <exonormal> fancy
[5:11] <sir_galahad_ad> ah
[5:11] <exonormal> in other words, pretty fancy
[5:11] <bberg> Mr_Sheesh: How would a burglar even know to look for this said 'ping'?
[5:12] <sir_galahad_ad> anyway it struct me as decent but, but that duino kit seems similar for a similar price and includes the uno
[5:12] <exonormal> yup
[5:12] <exonormal> weird
[5:12] <Mr_Sheesh> So long as you consider that while designing the system, maybe OK; But think "What would the NSA do with this" etc., too?
[5:12] <exonormal> now if they had pi zero with the pi kit that'll be great
[5:13] <sir_galahad_ad> certainly
[5:13] <bberg> Mr_Sheesh: Seems a little drastic for something so simple. It would be easier to track their phone/car?
[5:14] <bberg> Mr_Sheesh: how about pinging bluetooth? Then I am not adding 'risk'?
[5:15] <bberg> (assuming said person leaves bluetooth on)
[5:15] <ali1234> bberg: bluetooth has a protocol specifically for this
[5:15] <bberg> ali1234: do tell!
[5:15] <ali1234> https://developer.bluetooth.org/TechnologyOverview/Pages/PXP.aspx
[5:15] <bberg> ali1234: checking it out, many thanks
[5:15] <Mr_Sheesh> I've done a fair bit of embedded stuff, just saying that it's always a good thought to think about "What could go wrong?" BT has shorter range, so there's that. OFC many hams have APRS on so any burglar who knew them could just watch their APRS location LOL
[5:16] <ali1234> depending on hardware support it can even tell you the distance
[5:16] <Valduare> so hmm should I get this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019TNELNU?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A21QJ7PFF6GW31 and then fill it out with another accessory kit
[5:16] <ali1234> Mr_Sheesh: at the end of the day, there are not cybercriminals like in william gibson novels

[5:18] <Mr_Sheesh> ali1234 - Guess again. Lots of social engineering going on cyber stuff wise, as it's easier than other stuff; Hacking happens too tho. Talk to anyone investing in BTC or other cyber coins and see if they believe you there at all; THey won't
[5:18] <exonormal> Valduare: yeh, that'll do if that is what you are looking for...
[5:18] <Mr_Sheesh> Topics on MANY cyber channels state "cyber coin trades on IRC are always fraudulent"
[5:19] <Valduare> i’d like to tinker around with a little cd-rom cnc machine
[5:19] <Mr_Sheesh> VPS's get cracked into too etc.
[5:20] <ali1234> Mr_Sheesh: most BTC people are nutters, and as say that as one of them
[5:20] <ali1234> *I
[5:21] <Mr_Sheesh> I'd buy some, not most tho
[5:22] <ali1234> but the point here is that burglars do not yet posses the ability to track people online to find targets
[5:22] <ali1234> if you are savvy enough to do that you can get a proper job
[5:24] <ali1234> as such it only makes sense to do it for extremely high value targets

[8:34] <Raspbian> Hello
[8:34] <Raspbian> [02:22] <Raspbian> I have compiled a simple hello world C++ application. Every time I try to run the generated [02:23] <Raspbian> file it just flashes and then quickly closes. [02:23] <Raspbian> How can I fix this problem? [02:25] <Raspbian> Only way I was able to get it to stay open so I can look at the output was when I compiled it and ran it with the CodeBlocks IDE.

[8:57] <mlelstv> if that opens an output window and closes it when the program finishes, then you need the program to wait somewhat.
[8:57] <mlelstv> but maybe you can just configure the IDE to keep the output window open.

[13:37] <buZz> ledil: piface shield uses 12v? for what
[13:37] <buZz> which piface
[13:37] <buZz> i see multiples
[13:37] <gordonDrogon> the piface didn't used to power the Pi.
[13:38] <gordonDrogon> maybe a new one does?
[13:38] <gordonDrogon> however traditionally it was used as a relay board - so can switch 12v devices on/off...
[13:38] <buZz> the 'piface digital' is one with relays
[13:39] <gordonDrogon> and it didn't used to be called that - just PiFace ..
[13:39] <buZz> and the voltage (up to 20V) input isnt connected to anything, just to the relays
[13:39] <gordonDrogon> I've seen people connect mains (230v) to the relays )-:
[13:39] <gordonDrogon> 230v right next to their Pi... )-:
[13:40] <ledil> I need to switch 12v devices on/off (relay). Ive got a piface digital 2 and ive got a rpi 2. My supply for my rpi is 5V. is it possible to switch 12v devices with 5v input ?
[13:40] <buZz> up to 20V doesnt include 230v
[13:40] <buZz> :P
[13:40] <buZz> ledil: 2? O_o
[13:40] <ledil> raspberry pi 2
[13:40] <buZz> i dont see any 'piface digital 2'
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> ledil, yes, but I think you're thinking is somewhat incorrect. the Pi face on the Pi can switch 12v devices. the relays are powered from the Pi's 5v supply.
[13:41] <buZz> if you asking if 'piface digital' will output 12V if you only input 5V power to raspi, then no
[13:41] <gordonDrogon> the Pi's 3.3v gpio goes via a buffer to drive the relays at 5v.
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> you will need a separate 12v power supply for the 12v side of things.
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> so 2 PSUs - one a standard 5v one for the Pi and a separate 12v one for your devices
[13:42] <ledil> so it can switch 12v devices, but it can not power 12v, thats clear ... I mean it can switch 12v, right ?
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> switch 12v; yes.
[13:42] <gordonDrogon> it can switch 500v but I'd really not recommend it.
[13:43] <ledil> no ? why not ?
[13:43] <ledil> ah, sorry, didnt read 500v :D

[13:44] <ledil> i need to control the dooropener
[13:44] <gordonDrogon> ok, so a 12v solenoid type of thing.
[13:44] <ledil> dooropener operates 12v and rpi 5v
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> as long as you have a separate 12v supply for the door opener then you'll be fine.
[13:45] <ledil> normally I can take also a 12v PSU like lm2596 to power both with one cable right ?
[13:45] <gordonDrogon> you could.
[13:45] <ledil> it sounds like a "but ..." ...
[13:46] <buZz> lm2596 isnt powerfull
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> well you need to make sure the 5v side is decoupled enough so that activating the door solenoid doesn't cause a brown-out on the PSU side.
[13:46] <buZz> oh 3A
[13:46] <buZz> well, i wouldnt trust them to supply 3A :P
[13:46] <gordonDrogon> buZz, but the Pi is limited to 2A anyway via the polyfuse, so ought to be just fine.
[13:46] <buZz> and yes, add big-ass cap on the 5V output side :P
[13:46] <buZz> gordonDrogon: it should yes
[13:46] <buZz> but will it!

[16:13] <SpeedEvil> The major thing the pi has going for it is community
[16:14] <SpeedEvil> which is rather orthogonal to the hardware
[16:14] <DWKnight> orange, banana, and the solid-run hummingboards all offer slightly different included hardware to the rpi family

[16:16] <kerr> hmm
[16:16] <kerr> Orangepi seems pretty sweet, at a glance
[16:17] <DWKnight> the big things that the bananapi and solid run stuff has that I'm interested in are the build-a-router kits
[16:17] <kerr> My project Idea was to control my RC rock crawler... remotely. So instead Of using a remote control, tethering it to a cell phone (via wifi) then controling it from my desktop at home

[16:18] <DWKnight> a wifi saturated test course would work

[16:19] <kerr> In reality i'd probably use a laptop and ad-hoc wifi first
[16:20] <kerr> I see there are readily available c libraries for controling servos with the GPIO on the pi, So I just need to wire it all up and program an interface

[16:37] <kerr> I need to research how to control the ESC as well,
[16:37] <gordonDrogon> mikem's code will only do the 2 hardware ones, as will my wiringPi.

[16:39] <gordonDrogon> personally I'd buy a proper PWM controller, but pigpio supports pwm on any pin.
[16:39] <kerr> Is it particularly difficult to implement software PWM?
[16:40] <Valduare> im using pigpio for rgb leds
[16:40] <gordonDrogon> https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-16-channel-pwm-servo-hat-for-raspberry-pi-mini-kit
[16:40] <Valduare> but it runs the proc at 100%
[16:40] * muld (~muld@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/muld) Quit (Client Quit)
[16:40] <gordonDrogon> softwarePWM is possible, and I have a module in wiringPi
[16:40] <gordonDrogon> however there is too much jitter in it for servos - I tried and burnt a few out.
[16:40] * muld (~muld@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/muld) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:41] <kerr> I mean, while(1) { on(); wait(width); off(); wait(20-width); }
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> Software PWM causes both jitter and high power consumption on servos
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> the pwm in pigpio uses the hardware pwm timing and dma engine to clock data out over any pin.
[16:41] <gordonDrogon> kerr, do not to that - you'll burn out a servo
[16:41] <SpeedEvil> this is not the same as DMA/hardware PWM
[16:41] <kerr> ah... hmm
[16:42] <SpeedEvil> Burn out may be a bit pessimistic usually.
[16:42] <warpie> that's a nice pihat...
[16:42] <SpeedEvil> But it will certainly usually use more battery at best
[16:42] <kerr> So what is the different between what i was saying, and hardware pwm?
[16:42] <gordonDrogon> no.. burn-out is what happened to me. I really tried for a long time to tweak things, but ...
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> I'm working on dma/pwm stuff for wiringPi, but it's not at the front of my time right now.
[16:43] <Valduare> so speaking on this about servos etc the same is true for rgb leds?
[16:43] <SpeedEvil> No
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> LEDs work well with software PWM.
[16:43] <SpeedEvil> it'll just flicker a bit more
[16:43] <gordonDrogon> as do some DC motors for speed control.
[16:43] <SpeedEvil> maybe not visibly
[16:43] <Valduare> im meaning taking the load off the pi
[16:43] <Valduare> so its not rendering the pulses consuming the cpu etc

[16:44] * GuruMonk (~GuruMonk@ has joined #raspberrypi
[16:44] <Valduare> pigpio controlling my rgb leds bumps the cpu to 100%

[16:47] <gordonDrogon> no, I use wiringPi - because I wrote it.
[16:47] <kerr> Im looking at pigpio
[16:48] <gordonDrogon> kerr, hardwarePWM - accurate, not affected by the processor. Software PWM - jitter - affected by other things the processor is going.

[16:49] <gordonDrogon> pigpio - middle-ground PWM - simulates hardware PWM by using a hardware timer to trigger the dma engine into feeding bits out of a GPIO port. if you feed the right bits at the right time then you can simulate PWM.

[16:50] <kerr> While I'm not familiar with this per-se, isn't it possible to turn off scheduling and run at realtime priority?
[16:51] <t3chguy> if you run a realtime kernel, yes
[16:52] <t3chguy> http://www.emlid.com/raspberry-pi-real-time-kernel/
[16:52] <kerr> Ah, I see. not as easy as it seems
[16:52] <t3chguy> not quite, the kernel is compiled to aid in multitasking
[16:53] <t3chguy> so software PWM will often be interrupted
[16:53] <t3chguy> and cause jitter, which on a Servo will look like random movements

[16:59] <kerr> Then really the way to go
[16:59] <t3chguy> lets you use a second power supply for the actual PWM which could be handy too
[16:59] * qubitnerd (~neutrino@unaffiliated/electron/x-8286743) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[16:59] <t3chguy> actually not sure if thats for the PWM Signal
[17:00] <t3chguy> but lets you use a secondary PSU. probably for powering the devices attached to it
[17:00] <kerr> Now, the steering and ESC will require somewhat good control to be usable, the other thing is just on/off for 2wd/4wd
[17:00] <kerr> by pulling/pushing on a rod
[17:01] <kerr> ATM it's just jammed in 4wd position
[17:01] <Valduare> that board looks nice

[17:20] <kerr> I think I'm going to use a solenoid for my 2wd/4wd switch.
[17:20] <t3chguy> kerr: I just had another idea, instead of using that whole huge board
[17:20] <t3chguy> why not get an ATTINY85
[17:21] <t3chguy> and write a simple program for it so that you can use the Pi to send PWM Values over UART
[17:21] <gordonDrogon> right - off to the cinema. laterz!
[17:21] <t3chguy> 4 channels of PWM

[20:26] <buZz> ThePendulum: anyway, the XT60's are cheap and fit your purpose (and then some)
[20:26] <ThePendulum> 15A indeed isn't a peak you'll see any time
[20:26] <ThePendulum> but I'd rather wire things up a little bit more than set my room on fire
[20:27] <ThePendulum> buZz: yeah, I guess I need to build a case around my terminal PSU instead
[20:27] <ThePendulum> thanks for the suggestion
[20:27] <buZz> welcome :)
[20:27] <ThePendulum> now I need to find a nice solution to bundle 3 wires
[20:27] <ThePendulum> basically a few meter long heatshrink kind of thing
[20:28] <ThePendulum> 3 or 4, that is
[20:28] <DWKnight> I should get an atx psu breakout and such
[20:28] <DWKnight> use mopis to power a pi cluster through it
[20:28] <Crom> 24A at 0.060A
[20:28] <Valduare> they sell rolls of heatshrink tubing at harbor freight for cheap
[20:28] <ThePendulum> Crom: yeah, exactly, and DC jacks are usually only rated 5A or less
[20:28] <ThePendulum> so I don't really trust this
[20:29] <ThePendulum> Valduare: I asked whether people actually do this though, heatshrink meters of wire
[20:29] <ThePendulum> and I was told no
[20:29] <ThePendulum> xD
[20:29] <Valduare> I do
[20:29] <ThePendulum> ah
[20:29] <ThePendulum> well at least I wouldn't be alone then
[20:29] <DWKnight> heatshrink only bundles
[20:29] <DWKnight> if it's single connectors, not so much
[20:29] <ThePendulum> it wouldn't look too pretty though I imagine
[20:29] <Valduare> trick is drop a needle or something with thread through the heatshrink and use it to pull the wires through
[20:30] <ThePendulum> but yeah, I kinda want to get 1 wire for both power lines, data and in case of my WS2801s, the clock
[20:30] <Valduare> otherwise its a bear

[20:30] <ThePendulum> just on a smaller scale
[20:30] <ThePendulum> Valduare: so you then spend some time heat shrinking along the entire length?
[20:30] <ThePendulum> what kind of result does that give?
[20:30] <ThePendulum> I imagine it'd look a little iffy
[20:31] <Valduare> had an issue with the insulation on my macbook pro charging cord deteriorating etc so I took it all off and put it through heatshrink tubing and good as new
[20:31] <Valduare> I like how it turned out
[20:31] <Valduare> the cable is thinner now
[20:31] <ThePendulum> also, what do you use to solder everything on to? do you use one of those breadboard-ish PCBs adafruit has?
[20:31] <Valduare> and has held up for a year now

[20:32] <Valduare> ya
[20:33] <ThePendulum> nice ELI5 voice haha
[20:33] <DWKnight> I wish I had the time and practice to dismantle ewaste
[20:33] <ThePendulum> are you using the MOSFETS to up the voltage from 3.3V to 5V?
[20:33] <ThePendulum> sorry, don't really have time to watch the entire video in one go
[20:33] <ThePendulum> or time
[20:33] <DWKnight> would have so many components
[20:33] <ThePendulum> concentration maybe
[20:33] <Valduare> eli5?
[20:33] <Valduare> so the mosfets are a switch basically
[20:33] <ThePendulum> very slow and elaborating voice
[20:33] <ThePendulum> well not very slow, but clear I guess
[20:34] * citizen-stig (~citizen-s@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[20:34] <Valduare> the rgb led strips I use are 12v but the pi gpio is 3.3
[20:34] <ThePendulum> ah
[20:34] <ThePendulum> and you used it to go from 3.3V to 12V, or?
[20:34] <Valduare> so to keep them separated you can use mosfets to control the rgb lines
[20:34] <DWKnight> used the mosfets as electronically controlled switches
[20:34] <ThePendulum> OH wait, these are R G B channels too
[20:35] <Valduare> ya the strip I have is not the digitally addressable kind
[20:35] <ThePendulum> sorry, I'm not sure what the electronically controlled switches would do
[20:35] <Valduare> its RGB = ground and a 12v+ line
[20:35] <ThePendulum> yeah
[20:35] <Valduare> so the mosfets control the RGB ground connection
[20:35] * Keanu73_ is now known as Keanu73
[20:35] <ThePendulum> I have separate of those LEDs lying around
[20:35] <ThePendulum> well not that , what are they called
[20:35] <ThePendulum> those tiny square solder-on parts
[20:35] <ThePendulum> opposed to those bigger round long legged LEDs
[20:36] <ThePendulum> what an odd layout, GRB
[20:36] <DWKnight> LEDs come in may different sizes, shapes and intensities
[20:36] <ThePendulum> yeah, but I thought those short legged compact parts had a specific name
[20:37] <ThePendulum> maybe having to do with whether you solder them onto the PCB or stick them through and solder them on the bottom
[20:37] <Valduare> smd vs through hole
[20:37] <ThePendulum> I think that's it
[20:37] <ThePendulum> thanks :O

[20:39] <ThePendulum> but instead to get to 12V instead of 5t
[20:39] <ThePendulum> *v
[20:39] <Valduare> abstract the voltage
[20:40] <Valduare> it just lets you control the flow with a smaller voltage ie the 3.3 of the pi
[20:40] <ThePendulum> right
[20:40] <ThePendulum> are these just a type of an ordinary transistor?

[20:45] <ThePendulum> however, #electronics made me aware DC jacks are rarely ever rated to carry that much

[20:45] <ThePendulum> so likely my PSU is a bit of a fraud and I'm at risk of the thing catching fire if I use it like intended

[20:48] <Valduare> ah good that breakoutboard includes the load resister
[20:48] <ThePendulum> is that efficient at all?

[20:48] * SeatsTaken (~MiningInc@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/mininginc) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:48] <Valduare> you basically need a big resistor to simulate a load on the psu so you get a regulated current output for your small devices etc
[20:48] <ThePendulum> right
[20:49] <Valduare> the rest of the board is mainly the binding posts
[20:49] <ThePendulum> resistance is one thing I still need to wrap my head around
[20:49] <ThePendulum> as in, at the moment I'm still not sure why you'd want a resistor inbetween a battery and an LED
[20:49] * SeatsTaken (~MiningInc@gateway/vpn/privateinternetaccess/mininginc) Quit (Client Quit)
[20:49] <Valduare> but you could get binding posts and a resistor and add it right into the case of the psu
[20:49] <ThePendulum> I know you do want one, but the whyness is still a bit iffy
[20:49] <DWKnight> some power supplies don't actually need the load to regulate right

[21:09] <EdwardTurner> any issues there?
[21:09] <t3chguy> hinv: all you could cluster out is very non-essential tasks
[21:09] <t3chguy> the performance gain would be very very minor
[21:09] <t3chguy> if at all
[21:10] <t3chguy> the overhead would probably be larger than the gain
[21:10] <hinv> t3chguy, raspi isn't about performance
[21:10] <hinv> anyways
[21:10] <hinv> but know, there are plenty of tasks that would just use up too much memory to be done locally
[21:10] <DWKnight> the only thing you can really cluster on pis effectively would end up being video transcoding and program compiling

[23:45] <ThePendulum> ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[23:49] <ThePendulum> You could put the entire Zero in the wiring
[23:49] <[Saint]> coupla' bucks.
[23:49] <[Saint]> and a lot smaller.
[23:49] <ThePendulum> afaik the Arduino requires an external controller?
[23:49] <ThePendulum> it doesn't run anything itself, does it?
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> sometimes an arduino/atmega is a better solution, however with a wi-fi dongle a zero is much more easier to communicate with.

[23:52] <ThePendulum> different realm of potential, still
[23:53] <[Saint]> I think the *duinos have more flexibility in their input voltage.
[23:53] <[Saint]> which is desirable for some applications.
[23:53] <ThePendulum> it really depends on your project I suppose
[23:53] <[Saint]> 5.5 to 22V or so I believe.
[23:53] <[Saint]> and 5V logic, but it'll also do 3.3V logic too on most of them, perhaps accidentally, perhaps deliberately, I dunno.
[23:54] <[Saint]> logic switching is something I always viewed as a PITA for some projects.
[23:54] <[Saint]> It's not complicated, it's just annoying having to do single or bidirectional logic switching yourself when the board should be doing it.
[23:55] <ThePendulum> I guess

[23:55] <[Saint]> I realize often size is a factor in some applications, but, it's not like the components required to do this are expensive or add massive complexity.
[23:55] <ThePendulum> I wouldn't have a need for the Pi zero, but to call it retarded, meh
[23:56] <sir_galahad_ad> o/
[23:56] <ThePendulum> I mean how many people buy a Pi because they can

[23:56] <ThePendulum> any Pi
[23:56] <ThePendulum> might as well buy one that's impressively tiny
[23:57] <sir_galahad_ad> i have a use for a pi zero playing host for my drivewire :)
[23:57] <ThePendulum> it looks nice to use as an inline media center or so
[23:57] <[Saint]> A lot of people. But those same people who buy one just because they can, with no prior understanding of the concept other than the media saying "It's an $N computer!" also end up quickly discovering that it is in fact not at all what they expected and it becomes a $N paper weight or junk drawer relic.
[23:57] <ThePendulum> idk, plenty of use cases and little lost when you get one
[23:58] <[Saint]> I imagine that number of people who got one vs. found a useful case to use it is significantly smaller for the zero than any other model.
[23:58] <[Saint]> But I have little more than anecdotes and conjecture to support this.
[23:58] <ThePendulum> isn't the zero more powerful than the v1 Pi B?
[23:58] <[Saint]> No.
[23:58] * ShapeShifter499 (~ShapeShif@unaffiliated/shapeshifter499) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:58] <[Saint]> It's just clocked higher by default.
[23:58] <ThePendulum> source?
[23:58] <ThePendulum> right
[23:59] <ThePendulum> so it's the same at worst?
[23:59] <[Saint]> Right.
[23:59] <ThePendulum> and it's the same price, if not cheaper
[23:59] <ThePendulum> I mean why not, really
[23:59] <lengtche> i picked up a zero because it's the cheapest way to get into raspberry pi and see if i like it.
[23:59] * duckpuppy (~patrickai@ has joined #raspberrypi
[23:59] <lengtche> after that i can set it up as a quick and dirty web server
[23:59] <[Saint]> But requires a bunch of necessary additional hardware to make it actually readily functionable.
