Re: Pi Zero slows down

I honestly haven't used a Class 4 card in so long I couldn't even venture to guess what it's read/write speeds are but I'd definitely suggest getting at least a Class 10 card and seeing if that helps. Nice cards are pretty cheap so I try to get something speedy. (need all the performance you can ge...

Pi Zero slows down

After a while of navigating menus and playing games on my Pi Zero W, I notice it starts to slow down. Menus begin to stutter, and some textures get loaded in as white images instead for some reason. This happens maybe after about 10 minutes of play and navigation, not a very long time before it star...

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

Would any of you guys be brave enough to overclock your pi zero in this thing? No room for cooling, really...just curious if it would be wise or not.

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

That is a really nice case! Where did you get it? Bought it a while back at a local exchange. It's one of those generic external hard drive cases and the SNES controller is pretty much the same width as one of those. I think I paid $7 for it. I think I found the closest thing here :D Certainly chea...

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

That is a really nice case! Where did you get it? I am still having trouble getting one of those 10ft hdmi cables. I know the 6ft versions are out there but it would be ideal for the 10ft version. Anybody know where to get one? Amazon has been out of stock for what seems like forever. This is the l...

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

Thanks for a great guide! I'm not sure I completely understand how the hdmi-usb adaptor powers the pi. Does the usb have to be plugged in on the TV-side of the cable, or does your modification mean you can power the pi directly from the hdmi plug? The USB cable needs to be plugged into either the T...

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

Those KAYO Mini-HDMI to HDMI 10FT cables have been out of stock for quite some time now. They have 3-6 feet in stock, but not 10.

I haven't found any other 10 or 15 foot mini-HDMI cables that have that low-profile, squared-off end on them to allow it to fit in the case nicely.

Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

So is there anything you wish you had done different? How's the battery life on it? Speakers have good quality sound?
