This is super rad! The frame is super nice too.
Also, use whatever you want. As long as you start and finish a fun project and it meets YOUR specs, that's A+ in my book.

Oi, sorry about even dreaming of a possible improvement to a project (regardless how cool and perfect it already is). Jesus people.
Why would you want to consume less electricity? So you can run on a battery. Why would you wanna do that? So you can place the box anywhere and not worry about having access to a plug.
You did no work and offered only unfriendly remarks. Are you now surprised youíre being called out for your behavior?

Well yes, I am surprised, because in no way I thought that my suggestions were in any way unfriendly, mean, bad, awful or ... whatever else you want to call them. Definitely not my intention, but i probably have a bad way of communicating that. So ... i'll see myself out.

When I read your post the first time, it didn't seem negative at all, just a different way to tweak that project idea.

Hey Pi thread,
I have a friend who has been asking about a personal weather station, so I want to buy him a what he needs for his birthday. The kits look much pricier than the parts alone, does anyone have any recommendations?
I saw the Sense hat which looks like it does temperature and humidity, but a lot of reviews said that the heat from the pi caused it to not work right, so I'm thinking I'll go with the not hat version.
This is what I was going to base my purchases off of. I'm an idiot who knows nothing about raspberry pi, so I was hoping I could get some advice, or at least some eyes to tell me if this stuff looks good.
Cheers.

Some of the fun parts of the project are doing research on what to shop for and then actually shopping for the stuff. Maybe a gift card and a note mentioning itís for the weather station would be better than buying the parts.

Decided to do my own BOINC tutorial. Hopefully not poo poo and quite clear for those who just want to jump in. I got annoyed at other tutorials that were a bit complex and I like writing so I gave it a go.

Does anyone have advice for outputting a raspberry pi to component or SCART/RGB?

I've found a couple things like:

http://www.retrotink.com/#Products

and all of this stuff

http://retrorgb.com/rpi240p.html

Does anyone else here do this or would there be a better place to ask? This is the only RPi thread I could find.

Do you care about special low-res modes for accurate emulation of old systems on an actual CRT, or are you just looking to hook one up to an older TV/projector/AV system that doesn't support HDMI?

The stuff you linked is aimed at those doing the former. If the latter, any generic HDMI to component/SCART converter should do the trick. Obviously be aware that you won't get 1080p that way but all standard TV resolutions up to 1080i should be doable.

Yeah, sorry should have clarified. I am going to hook up to a PVM and want it to ouput at 240p

I have a pi2scart from arcadeforge and itís awesome. If you have any specific questions about it I can answer them.

I built a SCART to BNC breakout for it so I could use it on my extron crosspoint switch.

If you can find one, the older Raspberry Pi had component out. HDMI didn't come along until more recently.

Hey guys, just wanted to post more updates on my homemade dash for the Teslonda.

So we love the whole feel of the space ship vibe with all the switches and what not so we decided to go TWO displays; one being the primary dashboard and the other will be eye-candy / configuration / logging / GPS. Dash 1.0 had a 80s arcade style motif, so I wanted to keep a bit of that while adopting an overly complicated, "NES Space Sim meets knight rider" kind of look.

Complete with my dumb avatar's talking mouth telling the driver that his voltage sag reached critical levels or that the stator is about to melt from under the car.

Dash 2.0 demo
Quick test before we install it...

(more here on the Jimmy.Built's instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BjxbvKe...-by=jimmy.built)

Parts role call:
Two raspberry pis, networked to each other. Optional (manual) wifi to communicate to the outside world.
Petroblock's Powerblock for both of them, operating off of a relay board, operated off of switch.
Two 10.1" touchscreen displays from Amazon (these things are pretty drat amazing so far).
A PiCAN2 CANBUS shield
lots of relays, wires, usb breakouts lol
and one big rear end Buck converter (12v-5v) with 4 separate 3amp usb outlets.

This is so much drat fun. GPS module coming soon. I just keep running out of free time to do this.

I'm a Sad Panda.

Raspberry Pi v3b running DietPi 6.9. Things run on it just fine (I have Plex, PiHole, Sonarr qBittorrent, VNC, Radarr + Jacket on it) but it seems to want nothing to do with my laptop (192.168.1.10). I can connect to VNC and all the webbased things on my phone but if I run VNC Viewer on my laptop it won't work. I also am unable to SSH in with it.

It feels like my Pi has banned my laptop somehow. Where?

I've tried
sudo iptables -L -n

but the Chain INPUT, Chain FORWARD and Chain OUTPUT are all blank.

I've got fail2ban setup, but fail2ban-client status says I have 2 jails that are both empty.

Can you ping the pi from your PC on your local network? Vise versa?

I couldn't ping it no. Now that I changed my fixed IP from .10 to .154 I can access again so I'm assuming there's an IP ban on my Pi against .10 but no idea what triggered or, or where it is.

Maybe something else on the network had the same ip?

I'd be very surprised. It was the fixed IP my router has been giving me for a while.

Very strange. Glad you got this resolved already.

How's the Pi handling your Plex transcoding? I would love to have a Pi serve media from a NAS, but I'm afraid it would catch fire. ...Though to be fair, I did experiment with Moonlight (Steam streaming) and it was able to push 1080p with no noticeable issues.

I mean it's resolved in that 192.168.1.154 works fine. I'm pretty sure if I went back to .1.10 then it'd not respond again.

I set it so it just streams (and watch it using my Chromecast) rather than attempts to do anything to do the media. I'd say 90% of what I have is 720p, but I think the 1080p I've tried worked fine once I got my internet sorted. The WiFi reception where my Chromecast is located wasn't great so I fixed that and it streams without issue.
