Re: RaspStation 1

All complete and working. Sorted out the wiring so that the push button switch within the drive bay enables the hdd to be accessed externally from a pc using the microusb. I think it was because I hadn't grounded the ID wire on the microusb panel mount socket. I added an ATXRaspi V3 on the power sid...

Re: Powering USB controller from 3.7V

Nintenedo? you mean Xbox. That is the wired version and it might require 5v but to be honest not sure since the wireless one is likely running at lower voltages than 5v unless it is boosting it but I don't know unless I actually see the pcb but not worth the effort since you are using the wired mod...

Re: Powering USB controller from 3.7V

Odd since the controller works off of 2 AA batteries which at best is 3v and lower, so maybe you wired it wrong or the controller has a boost circuit. Ah, I better check the wiring! Thanks for the info. Also this is a USB repo controller, not a genuine Nintendo controller. Sorry, should have made t...

Re: Powering USB controller from 3.7V

To answer my own question, I tested it and yes, you need a 3.7 to 5V step up.

Re: RaspStation 1

Pretty much complete... just waiting on a USB to sata adapter and a micro hdmi extension cable because I'm not happy with how tight the right-angle connector is in the port and that it's interfering with the USB C power connector. PS I found out that not all USB cable manufacturers stick to the whit...

Re: Need help with a project idea

Well, spot the obvious mistake in my wiring to the pi.

Anyway spotted it, sorted it out, wired and put everything together and the USB is not detected so definitely needs 5v. I've got a power boost on order.

Fitment is pretty good otherwise considering everything I managed to squeeze into there.

when you get to powering the pi, check out the snes zero project, for doing it over the hdmi: https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2753 Hi, Could this be powered by a lipo battery including the controller? I have a query whether the whole lot including the controller can be powered fr...
