Brother gave me a small pre-hdmi flat screen. That freed up other monitors.

Have been using kodi more and more. Still have to set up the time server access.

Gave my niece an old wok. Sure she will appreciate it.

Got several of the rpi zeros. Except for the wiring, same as using any other pi.

Downloaded the latest slackware, but have not installed it yet.

Sent a ton of stuff to the recyclers which I said I never would do.

Gosh I hae not logged in a long time, need to look and see what is in the forums.
Passed on getting an RPI zero,because by the time you get the cables you are better off just gett9ing an a except for the speed boost.
The most recent version of raspian seems to be more stable.
Been running kodi in the living room.. kind of neat. Makes up for not having an appletv or roku box.

Raspi sound.

Posted 03-01-2016 at 05:08 AM by peonuser

Finally decided to do something with my Raspberry Pi. Made a desktop to put it the den. Normally I use a composite monitor, but I decided to use a VGA monitor with an HDMI to VGA adapter. Unfortunately the adapter did not support sound, so I had to use the standard analog audio adapter.

Well I hooked everything up and everything was working but the sound. Hmmm. The sound worked before. Did a bit of research and found I had to use a utility to change the default sound output.
