Saturday Raspberry Jam Hackspace Meeting (1st Sat of month)

  • Dec 1, 2012 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Some things we do:

  • Quick intro to Jam, people in the room and their projects
  • Python clinic (2:30)
  • Setting up a flash disk image
  • LCD options for the RasPi
  • Using the Pi with a laptop -- avoid carrying a screen & keybaord. ssh, internet connection sharing, X tunnels, connection to the GPIO for console access
  • Options for for cases and 3D Case printing

The actual content will be driven by what people what to do on the day and the constraints of time. Please feel free to bring along any projects you are working on.

Important notes:

  1. If you do not have a RasPi yet please feel free bring a flash card (4 Gb SD card, ideally class 6) and you can probably have a play on a borrowed RasPi unit.
  2. Please bring a laptop and Ethernet cable if you have one. We only have one spare screen / keyboard / mouse.
  3. CCHS can sell you a 3D printed cases for $8.
  4. May have some 3.3V USB-to-Serial cables for sale ($18), which provide serial console access (via your laptop).

    Bit of an update and a little progress. I found that Occidentalis would correctly load the module for this device from dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw. It uses the same kernel as the Xbian distro. So there is no architecture issue with this module.
    Dmesg showed a udev step after recognising the device so I reloaded udev and grabbed a copy of the udev rules from Occidentalis into Xbian. Alas my optimism was dashed - still doesn't load in Xbian. Still cannot see what in initiates:
    [ 8532.334652] dvb-usb: found a 'Sony PlayTV' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
    [ 8532.375637] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw'
    [ 8532.580917] dib0700: firmware started successfully.

    More head scratching required.

    All
    Having trouble getting a driver/module to load for a Sony PlayTV tuner usb device on the Rasp Pi using Xbian as the distro.

    suggests that other people have found that the firmware binary dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw has worked ok on the raspi platform but with a diiferent device. Maybe the ehci_hcd vs dwc_otg as USB driver is a key to this as you suggested.
