  Bluetooth reconnect
Posted by: MaNIaC - Yesterday, 10:38 AM - Forum: Support area - No Replies


Made an observation when playing PSX on the ROPi. When the controller decides that it wants more power, and you charge it for a while, it cannot reconnect when the game is still active/running.

Is there any way to reconnect the controller while the emulator is still running? I dont have a keyboard plugged in normally, so my only option was to kill it via SSH.

Wink Installed to eMMC - Nothing happens when trying to boot
Posted by: MaNIaC - 02-21-2017, 08:49 AM - Forum: Support area - Replies (9)

Hi guys.

I've been messing around with my ROPi install on a 32GB Verbatim SD-card, which is all good and works fine, however I want to run the OS from the eMMC, and ROMS from a pendrive. I had this working fine, and ran the eMMC install-script, everything installed fine onto to the internal storage and everything  was running as if I was booting of the SD-card.

I somehow screwed something up on the internal OS-install, and had to run ROPi from the SD-Card again, setting up some stuff and so on. But now, when I try to transfer the SD-install to the eMMC, nothing happens when I shutdown the board and remove the SD-card, to boot of eMMC. Green LED on board lights up, LED's on the NIC lights up staticly, no light in my BT-dongle, nothing happens. Boots fine with the SD-card put in.

I tried transfering it through the eMMC script twice, no difference. Do I have to pre-format the internal storage, or run som kinda diskpart-thing or something, before transfering?

  DIY IR blaster via GPIO pins
Posted by: eadmaster - 02-16-2017, 06:06 PM - Forum: Support area - No Replies

I've build myself the IR blaster described here.
Btw the "lirc_rpi" module is missing, can you add it in the next update?
As alternative i've also found this lirc_gpio module.https://github.com/matzrh/sunxi-lirc/wiki

Question WiFi RT8188 (freeze & restart)
Posted by: vklimov - 02-16-2017, 10:46 AM - Forum: Hardware compatibility - Replies (2)

Hello, guys!
Can you help me fix one problem, please.
RetrOrangePi 3.0.1
Orange Pi PC

When I connect to my WiFi network-  system is freeze (3-5 second) and full restart. Same problem when I insert wifi-dongle in already started system (in Desktop mode)- its immediately freeze and restart.
I use wifi-dongle at RT8188 chip. This: Aliexpress

System restarted when it connect to WiFi-network (after typing password). If it not connect- it works and shown near WiFi-networks.
Also I try use network without password, same result- freeze and restart.

Photo with log connection to the network from setup menu:
[398.984287] Kernel panic
And finally restart.

Earlier I asked this question in Facebook group, but the solution has not been found.

Maybe I should sit down and make one, but then no one would read it anyway.
