Re: 2.4Ghz receiver and GPIO

D'oh, completely missed the part that said "on each channel" thought it was 1 wire to control 6 servos!!

Yeah guess it would just be a PWM signal.

Think you should be able to read the voltage using a multi-meter as you'll read the "average" voltage.

Re: 2.4Ghz receiver and GPIO

I doubt it'll be that simple. I've had a quick look on the net to see what sort of data is transferred on that wire but couldn't find anything. Probably digital data which you'd need some sort of software designed for the Pi to be able to read it. That is a complete guess though. Maybe someone else ...

This one, this one.

I did think about this one, however the cut outs are just a little bit too high! So won't fit :(

Re: Case with a GPS hat

It depends which GPS HAT you are after... The Adafruit GPS HAT - http://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/breakout-boards/adafruit/adafruit-ultimate-gps-hat-mini-kit should fit in the majority of cases. I will definitely fit in our modular case - http://www.modmypi.com/search/?search=ModMyPi%20Modular%20...

Re: OpenELEC not showing in NOOBS list

I don't think you can use WiFi when using the NOOBs installer. Have to have a cable (ethernet) connection

Re: Poor networking

As you are using Jessie I'm assuming you are booting into a GUI? Maybe try booting to the CLI and running a speed test from there. For what ever reason the GUI might be causing issues. To boot into the CLI follow this guide: http://www.modmypi.com/blog/boot-to-command-line-raspbian-jessie Once you h...

Re: Rasclock not working with ModMyPi or official instructio

Could it be that the Raspberry Pi NTP server is just wrong? Have you tried changing NTP servers? Here's how: Visit: http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/NTPPoolServers and select your area, and then zone (In this example I'll be using the UK pool) server 0.uk.pool.ntp.org server 1.uk.pool.ntp.org...
