  1. I have Banana M1+ and a spare 16Gb SD card, so am willing to test anything if required.
  2. Apart from the ongoing wireless / no wireless (just keep shutting down and / or rebooting until it comes back) issues, the board has been performing really well. I'm now just doing some basic housekeeping to check everything is okay and noticed that I'm getting a lot of entries in /var/log/syslog like this.... Jan 29 19:17:01 jukebox rsyslogd-2007: action 'action 17' suspended, next retry is Fri Jan 29 19:18:31 2016 [try http://www.rsyslog.com/e/2007 ] (There's around 15 of these every hour) I've seen a 'fix' posted in in respect of Raspbian about this, but wondered if this is something
  3. What I've been doing for remote storage is to connect to an nbd-server and I then mount the device with nbd-client and copy files to the filesystem then disconnect the client. Not sure if this a particularly good solution, but it's been working for me.
  4. The python script I have is : #!/usr/bin/env python3 # -*- coding:utf8 -*- import logging import pif import pygodaddy logging.basicConfig(filename='godaddy.log', format='%(asctime)s %(message)s', level=logging.INFO) GODADDY_USERNAME="xxxxxx" GODADDY_PASSWORD="xxxxxx" client = pygodaddy.GoDaddyClient() client.login(GODADDY_USERNAME, GODADDY_PASSWORD) logging.debug("Started: before 'for'") for domain in client.find_domains(): dns_records = client.find_dns_records(domain) # Old ip.. old_ip = list(dns_records)[0].value # 'New' ip! public_ip = pif.get_public_ip() #
  5. I've got an M1+ which cost exactly $40. Powered by basic 5V 2A. 240Gb SSD and 500Gb external disk run fine. WiFi is a bit hit and miss and refuses to come up sometimes, but this could be because all power downs are not graceful (Power supply in Thailand is crap and my UPS is currently bust)
  6. I registered a domain at Godaddy and have a python script that runs every ten minutes and updates my A record if my dynamic IP has changed. I can supply details if this is of interest.
  7. Probably a $300+ project by the end, so too rich for me at the moment. :-(
  8. You've lost me. How can I connect this to my incoming ADSL2+ presentation?
  9. "There is no CPU governor (yet?), so I assume it's running full speed (1.6Ghz) all the time." Interesting to see on their website..... There will be overclocking options too in the future to 1.8ghz/2.0ghz with newer DDR devices - but this is not public for now. From a quick read of their website, it would appear that this is what the Banana R1 should have been. If I could find a mini pcie ADSL2+ modem, this could be an interesting all-in-one gateway device project EDIT : Actually, thinking about it, exposing the motherboard to the telecomms network might not be such
  10. A productive couple of days! A couple of modifications made to the supplied bin file (bin2fex and fex2bin) and I'm now using the onboard 3.5mm analog audio with no crackles and using a standard TRS cable as well as the SATA drive on the SATA port instead of via USB. [sata_para] [sata_para] sata_used = 1 sata_power_en = port:PB08<1><default><default><0> [audio_para] [audio_para] audio_used = 1 capture_used = 1 audio_pa_ctrl = port:PH15<1><default><default><0> audio_lr_change = 0 playback_used = 1 capture_used = 1 So, I now have a sys
  11. "Bananian will not boot on your Banana Pi M1, M1+, Pro and R1 any longer " Ouch!
  12. LOL! (Been there, done that)
  13. Cheers for the solution! I saw this behaviour a couple of times on my Banana Pi M1+ and it caused issues with a few scripts such as the python script for setting the GoDaddy DNS Zone to my public IP address. (Learning more every day!)
