Raspberry Pi startup

created: 2022-06-15 from Bernhard

When I bought my first Raspberry, the first thing I did was to install and run an OpenElec Media-Center image: works, faster and easier than expected. Thanks to the HDMI connector and the Full-HD graphics chip, the Raspberry Pi is wonderfully suited as a TV supplement in case of missing or deficient smart TV functions or as an engine for a retro game console like Super Nintendo. There are also more specialized images for automation tasks, for example as a supplement for controlling a 3D printer. ... continue reading

Troubleshooting loop signal search loop Husqvarna Automower.

What if one day the search loop of the robotic mower is interrupted. If you have just dug around in the garden, it is relatively easy to search for the problem area, but it is different when the mower no longer has a loop signal without any obvious external influence. The LED on the charging station then no longer lights up green, but flashes in the color blue or yellow on the 305/308 models. Exactly this fate has befallen me several times. I read a long time ago that the search loop can be foun... ... continue reading
