Windows Installation

Windows Installation
Windows installation is very simple and works on Windows 2000 / XP, Vista and Seven. First, fetch the Windows installer from this link here and extract the contents to a folder. Next up, run the program called “setup.exe”, you may receive a UAC prompt if running Vista or later. This is because the Raspbmc installer needs to run as an Administrator on your system to write to the SD card at block device level. You will now be presented with an interface such as this: Your SD card should be shown on the list. WARNING: This program enumerates ALL removable devices on the system, data loss can occur and I will not be responsible if you image the wrong device. Note if you want to use your SD card for purposes other than Raspbmc and the card only appears to be about 60MB in Windows: That’s because Windows does not recognise the Linux partitions that Raspbmc uses.

The Only Raspberry Pi XBMC Tutorial You Will Ever Need In this updated guide, you will learn how to set up Raspberry Pi 3 as a complete Kodi (was XBMC) entertainment center solution with the right accessories. Over the past couple of years, I have had mixed feelings about Raspberry Pi as a Kodi based front-end device, because even after using all possible optimization tricks it simply was not responsive enough for my requirements. Fortunately, with the latest Raspberry Pi 3 this is not the case anymore. In this complete and up-to-date tutorial, you will learn

DS18B20 Temperature Sensing @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi January 29, 2013 AT 8:28 am Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Lesson 11. DS18B20 Temperature Sensing @ The Adafruit Learning System. The Occidentalis Linux distribution for Raspberry Pi (and Raspbian as of Dec 2012) includes support for the DS18B20 1-wire temperature sensor. These sensors come in a small three pin package like a transistor and are accurate digital devices.In this lesson, you will learn how to use a DS18B20 with the Raspberry Pi to take temperature readings.Since the Raspberry Pi has no ADC (Analog to Digital Converter), it cannot directly use an analog temperature sensor like the TMP36, making the DS18B20 a good choice for temperature sensing.

Raspberry Pi OS Image Downloader When I first started out playing around with the Raspberry Pi I used the pre-made SD Card images available on the website, however I soon noticed these were out of date, and then found it a challenge to find up to date (usually nightly builds) of some of the Operating Systems. So I decided to automate this process to make it easier, and to provide a GUI interface for new users. The application scans a customisable (XML based) list of distributions and binary sources using a defined search pattern, if it finds any builds it adds them to a selectable list, allowing you not only to download the latest available builds but also older builds. Each Operating System distribution can have multiple sources so various flavours can be included. When you select and download an image, it is also cached so you don’t need to download the same file twice, cached files are marked so they can be easily spotted.

Raspberry Pi - run program at start-up Anyway, I wanted to get my Raspberry Pi to start no-ip dynamic dns service when it started-up, so I wouldn't have to remember to start it every time it was powered up. For details on how to install no-ip on the Pi, see this post. There are loads of ways of running a command at start-up in Linux but my favoured approach is to create an initialisation script in /etc/init.d and register it using update-rc.d.

SD Formatter 3.1 for SD/SDHC/SDXC SD Formatter 4.0 for SD/SDHC/SDXC This software formats all SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards and SDXC memory cards. SD Formatter provides quick and easy access to the full capabilities of your SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. The SD Formatter was created specifically for memory cards using the SD/SDHC/SDXC standards. It is strongly recommended to use the SD Formatter instead of formatting utilities provided with operating systems that format various types of storage media.
