    renaudrenaud got a reaction from Igor in Orange Pi Zero H5: how to log   
    Thanks Igor. I've done the USB solution to activate Wifi and now i can use Putty to play with it.
     
    Form factor is perfect for what I have to do but the Orange Pi Zero with H2+ has an horrible Wifi behavior, so I try with the H5 version.
     
    Thanks again Igor.

    renaudrenaud got a reaction from gnasch in Does VR Bluetooth gamepad-controller work in Armbian or Debian?   
    More or less the same. I have a nice little project with retrorangepie and an old monitor for a bar, but I prefer die with my ideas instead of joining Facebook. Just the fact to write the word let me the impression my fingers are dirty.
     
    I have a BT gamepad working with Retropie and I want test it with retrorangepie on OPzero and it's beautiful composite output, perfect for an RF converter perfect for the antenna plug of the old monitor.

    renaudrenaud got a reaction from znoxx in Orange TORBox on Opi Zero   
    Thanks, I will have a look when back at home.
     
    I read in your documentation that realtek dongle are supported, but not for the OPz. Because the poor onboard wifi adapter in the case of Opz, it could be cool to have a realtek wifi dongle support, don't you think so ?
     
    Oh I see you also propose images! Nice job!

    renaudrenaud got a reaction from pzw in Orange Pi Zero dimensional (mechanical) drawing   
    Ok, so go to the website indicated and you have a tool to measure. I've tried it and the measure indicated are ok (I only use a ruler for the moment waiting for the electronic caliper in few days).
     
    If I do something on the CAD files, I will not use Autocad but freeware instead.

    Do you want to know the dimensions to create box for 3D printers?
     
    If yes, there is already something in thingiverse I've already printed, working fine :
    1 - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1986658
    2 - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1918590
     
    You can get the files and open them with freecad for example, so there you can grab the measurements.

    Hello evreyone,
     
    Once month ago, for the Christmas holidays, I was back in France. A friend of mine ask me some information about a little amp to drive a speaker – PM8403 was the answer – from a little SBC. He showed me his project and I discovered by this time the Orange Pi Zero.
     
    Since many years I am using Logitech Media Server to listen to music. I started with a server computer as everybody, then went to the Raspberry few years ago. In another life I realized some projects with Arduino, and dreamed to write something to get an LCD showing me the artist name and song etc... with a SBC.
     
    I live in China and here there is no way to have a Raspberry Zero at European cost ( here it’s around 20$, when a v3 is around 27$).
    Because of what my friend showed me, one month ago, back in China January 3 I bought 2 OPZ. It took 3 days to come from Shenzen, it was the 512MB Ram version with the SPI on the board. During the holidays I started to learned python (the basis)... 
     
    My friend told me to use Armbian, I discovered the website, the forum, the distro. I’ve learned so much in only one month. I’ve managed to install LMS and squeezelite - audio server and client - and it is so easy (I was afraid of that before), I wrote in Python the application I wanted to use for the I2C LCD, I used the GPIO for this project, and discovered plenty of other things.
     
    So I would like to thank you very much for your website, for Armbian and for your huge job.
     
    I have plenty of questions, of course, but I try to find my myself before to ask, the hard way…
     
    And sorry for my poor English.
     
    Congratulations and thank you again.
