Raspberry Pi 2

Post #1 by Eyerex » 4 years ago

My Raspberry Pi 2 is on it's way :rockon:

Should have one in a day or two with a ninja case it's for my sister to turn her stupid TV into a smart TV :)

Fingers crossed Windows 10 support doesn't take to long

It just turned up and you see pics and video on the web and you know it's small but it's not until you have in your hand that you realize how fudging small the raspberry is "it's tiny"

Temperature monitoring with interfaces made by Sheepwalk Electronics:

Using these 1-Wire Bus temp sensors, though I bought them through Amazon:

Those tie to my ISY-994I home automation controller, so if a temp goes too high or low, I get an alarm.

Have mine plugged into my HiFi as a network music player, installed Volumio on the Pi then you just plug in a usb drive or connect to your NAS drive and then from any device with web access you can choice your music
