RPI - HDMI config.txt
As the Raspberry Pi doesn't have a conventional BIOS, the various system configuration parameters that would normally be kept and set using the BIOS are now stored in a text file named "config.txt". The Raspberry Pi config.txt file is read by the GPU before the ARM core is initialized. This file is an optional file on the boot partition. It would normally be accessible as /boot/config.txt from Linux, but from Windows (or OS X) it would be seen as a file in the accessible part of the card. To edit the configuration file, see the instructions at R-Pi_ConfigurationFile. You can get your current active settings with the following commands: vcgencmd get_config <config> - lists a specific config value. The format is "property=value" where value is an integer. Note: In the newer Raspberry Pi models there is # before every line, if you want changes to have an affect then 'uncomment' meaning remove the #. Here is an example file disable_l2cache disable ARM access to GPU's L2 cache. start_x=1 #!

RPI - TEMP SENSOR In this tutorial, we will be building a circuit to connect a temperature sensor to our Raspberry Pi, and writing a program to read the sensor data. The circuit we will build is going to connect to the Raspberry Pi using the GPIO pins. GPIO stands for General Purpose Input/Output. R-Pi ConfigurationFile How to edit the boot configuration file for Raspberry Pi While booting up, the Raspberry Pi reads some configuration parameters from the SD card. These parameters are stored in a file named config.txt and located in the /boot partition at /boot/config.txt. You can edit this configuration file from a Mac, from a Linux PC, or from within the Raspberry Pi itself. Depending on the partitioning scheme of your SD card, the /boot partition may not be visible to Windows PCs. In this case, you will need use either a Mac, a Linux PC or the Raspberry Pi to edit the configuration file.

Self-Contained Projector Rig #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi May 16, 2014 AT 4:00 pm Self-Contained Projector Rig #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi Filmmaker and interactive video artist Tim Bartlett (who recently created the Kentile Floors Sign Illuminated project) shared with us a handy way to build an efficient video projection rig around your Raspberry Pi. Self-Contained Projector Rig: A Raspberry Pi controlled mini CNC Laser engraver [keep updating] I recently made a mini CNC laser engraver using two DVD drives salvaged from old computers and <$10 extra parts bought on eBay. The controller of the CNC machine is a Raspberry Pi, a $35 credit card size computer. The engraver turns out to be pretty successful.

Raspberry Pi FAQs Table of Contents: The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by adults and children all over the world to learn programming and digital making.

Self-Contained Projector Rig I was recently asked to provide a video projection for the Proteus Gowanus ball, and assembled my most compact, self-contained projector rig to date. It involves Velcroing a Raspberry Pi computer to my homemade projector mount, which can be clamped anywhere with standard film grip gear. When plugged in, 1080p video plays in a loop. Book: Raspberry Pi For Dummies by Sean McManus and Mike Cook Raspberry Pi For Dummies shows you how to get the best from your Raspberry Pi, whether you have a Model A, Model B, Model B+ or Raspberry Pi 2. You will learn how to set it up, including connecting it up, downloading and installing its software and configuring its settings. You'll be shown how the desktop environment and the Linux command line can be used to manage your Pi and its files.

RPi Adding USB Drives USB Flash and Hard Drives Sooner or later, you're going to run out of room on the SD card used to boot and run your Pi. One solution is to move to a larger SD card, but, the largest low-cost high-speed cards are 32 GBs for about US$20 ~ $45 (May 2012). However, there may be compatibility issues between these higher-capacity SD cards and the Pi, at least, temporarily. Remotely Accessing the Raspberry Pi via SSH – Console Mode Remotely Accessing the Raspberry Pi via SSH – Console Mode This guide will walk you through the steps to logging into your Raspberry Pi's console from another PC or laptop. The method utilises Secure Shell (SSH), a secure network protocol for data communication, which is very useful for remote operation via command-line.
