  Clone led status on GPIO?
Posted by: Spirax - 02-10-2017, 03:20 PM - Forum: Hardware compatibility - Replies (2)

Hi there.

I have tried to search for it but didn't found it yet.

anyone know if the led status can be clonated on the GPIO?

I have place the OPI inside a keyboard.
I have placed a led connected with a resistor to the 3.3v to know where the OPI is ON or OFF.
but this is only half of the work I want to do.

I modified the motherboard red led to report when mmc0 is readed or writed so i can see when sd card is in use.
sudo echo mmc0 > /sys/class/leds/red_led/trigger

but I don't see the led when keyboard is closed Sad
I will install a new led outside the case, but instead of solder directly on the original led, I would like to connect new led to the GPIO
in case I found (with your help) the way to clone the red_led and or green_led status on the GPIO.

thanks in advance for any tip/help/comment, etc Wink

  TV settings
Posted by: zgoda - 02-09-2017, 12:05 PM - Forum: Support area - Replies (3)

This is not directly related to ROPi but rather to screen/TV settings.

Sometimes I need to do something in command line. While grey/white characters appear OK on screen, the coloured are blurred to the extent they are unreadable (eg. editing shell script in Vim when using any colour scheme). Is there anything I could do about this?

  Beelink X2 - Stuck on installing
Posted by: wobblejuice - 02-09-2017, 04:53 AM - Forum: Support area - Replies (3)


Has anyone been able to get the latest build working on the BeelinkX2.  I have tried multiple times but always freeze on the installing screen. I have tried multiple SD cards and power supplies but to no avail. It will load the OrangePI PC image successfully but the emulators can barely run and pegs the cpu. not sure what else I can try

Ok can be emulated with vice.
But performances on vice are ugly on OrangePI PC. (and i like more to have separate folder for each systems)
Here the "setup" for installing and configuring yapesdl:

  Bluetooth dongle works only hotplugged
Posted by: kill_us_Now - 02-06-2017, 01:12 AM - Forum: Support area - No Replies

First of all i want to clarify that my linux knowledge is very very basic, anyway i will try to explain the best i can.

i have read some on the net and seems like linux have a problem with these silicon cambridge bluetooths... after applying some fix /etc/modprobe.d/fbdev-blacklist.conf  blacklist hci_usb and then /etc/modules hci_usb reset=1 the dongle works fine and pairs with the controller fine if hot plugged after botting into ES, not the 100% of the times still.

If i let the dongle connected and then reboot or cold boot it will just not start, hciconfig -a shows it down and cant put it up again or restart.

any ideas?

Edit:ok i found the issue, im getting really unluck with this cheap chinese things, the dongle was faulty, after test it on other 2 machines it had i/o errors, changed it on the local store for another of the same, again it was faulty too, changed for another of a different class and this one is working.....for now, hope it last

  Select button mapping in PPSSPP
Posted by: zgoda - 02-05-2017, 11:25 AM - Forum: Support area - No Replies

I found mapping of Select button is different in 3.1 than in 3.0 - with default mapping it is bound to bring PPSSPP menu screen and does not work in a game. If I remap it to "Select function" then I'm not able to exit game to emulator menu screen. I did not notice such weird behaviour in previous version, is the button config written to any file I could check?

Posted by: kill_us_Now - 02-04-2017, 04:22 PM - Forum: Support area - Replies (1)

Is it posible to download screenshots instead of boxart in the built in ES scrapper? 

Also, is it posible giving that u already have the screenshot to download and update only the game description?

On windows universal_xml_scraper does a very nice job but the image quality is very poor...
