  • I'm loving the pi.

    Been playing with lots of options but for now I've set it up to be a btsync server :)

  • Going to have another crack at this today. Still could work out why I can't see the external drives on the pi when I log in from my mac.

  • Ordered mine yesterday, setting it up as a media centre then maybe some other fun projects later down the line.

  • got mine running now, just using it for xbmc on the telly. fun!

  • Upgraded Xbian last week. A lot smoother now. I really don't use it for anything else tbh

  • So there's a thread for this too, I have one of these but so far have done nothing with.

    This should explain everything regarding mounting USB drives: http://raspi.tv/2012/how-to-mount-and-us­e-a-usb-hard-disk-with-the-raspberry-pi

  • ^^ Indra, I bought my Pi with the intention of building a retro gaming system full of awesome Nintendo and Sega games.

    I now use the Pi for other stuff but I have two of these that I never used, you should buy them off me and build one yourself :)

  • I'll also stick this link here as there are some good tutorials that may be of interest to some of you!

  • I could give that a try, how much would you want?

  • Thanks dude. Will check it out. Now I'm looking at that and thinking an getting a snes/gba emulator maybe? Mariokart on the projector?

  • Practically tearing my hair out now. Half the code that the websites suggest don't work, and whatever I try, the pi won't show up on my network.

  • All working now! I HAS NAS

  • For some reason my external drives were not showing up in OSX Finder - the raspberry pi was but not anything else - but managed to fix it by doing:

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install netatalk

    sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk stop

    sudo nano /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default

    Now go all the way down (ctrl-v) and you see:

    ~/ "Home Directory"

    add:

    /media "External Drives"

    Add this to the line starting with DEFAULT:
    rw

    CTRL X, Y, enter

    sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk start

    Sorted.

  • This is very cool, how to use BTSync and Raspberry Pi as your own secure dropbox

    I use my Synology with it's own software, however I could be tempted to move.

  • I use the noobs distro of xbmc/openelec/rasppbmc.

    Since. Using this, it's been more solid than the raspbmc distro.

    Raspbmc dude annoys me.

  • Ben, you may like this if you've not seen it already:

  • No, but that's awesome.

  • Bought a Pi last week, just waiting to get a TV/monitor so I can see what I'm doing with it.

    I have no idea what I'm doing but I should be able to pick it up and do something with it.

  • You can use a HDMI to DVI cable to plug it into a normal TFT monitor.

    The downloads page at RaspberryPi.org has ready-to-go image files you can write onto an SD card, then it should boot first time. Like a LiveCD, but not read only (and faster because they know what hardware you're using).

    As you've been using Ubuntu, Raspbian is probably going to be the easiest distro to use, but if you want it to be more like a set-top-box, raspbmc is Debian-based and intended to rub XBMC as its default interface.

    You might need to buy the MPEG licensed firmware if you want to take advantage of the video-decoding hardware, then re-endcode any media you already have to H264 using FFMPEG.

    Also, make a wooden case for it, it'll stop you damaging any parts and teh interwebs will love you for it when you blog about it.

  • Mine arrived today along with the camera....

    I'm going to start with some time lapse photography while I wait for the stepping motors to arrive from China for other interesting projects*

    *These will all get to complicated, I'll get board, and it will end up as a media server (If i can even work out how to do that!)

  • I got one this week for villa-junior's christmas pressy. Hope he understands what the fuck to do with it - I understand about 3 words on this thread.

    FYI printers contain step motors and obsolete printers are everywhere...

    Printers may also include optical encoders which you can use to get smoother starts and stops than is possible with a normal stepper. Bonus points for achieving that without using digital logic to manage the speed.

    An Arduino starter kit might get him more interested in the physical experiments side of things, and you can connect an Arduino to a Pi using USB, Bluetooth, ZigBee... I should get on with my robot project.
