How many of you have a raspberry pi?
And what are you using it for?

Mine is running samba+apache server and a torrent client.

Best investment ever.

I further wish to automate torrent downloads, like running a script that automatically looks for episodes of series that i'm watching when they come out and automatically downloads them. Is there such a script already out there?

Also gonna control the lights in my room through some relays and wireless modules and controlling them through a webpage through apache server. Currently waiting on said modules to be delivered.

Would love to hear more ideas.
>>
>>45688683
I don't have one yet, however I am looking at getting one to make a touchscreen stereo for my car with easy streaming music and videos to/from my phone. Auto downloading podcasts when I pull into my driveway and connect to WiFi etc...
>>
transmission-daemon and flexget, you can thank me later
>>
>>45688721
i saw this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_fSoViiNOo
Might help.
>>45688732
I'm already running transmisison-daemon. Thanks for suggesting me flexget. Seems like the thing i was looking for.

Have you tried other torrent clients? Deluge seemed like a better option than transmission in many websites that compared the two.
>>
>>45688754
I've tried Deluge. I couldn't stand it, it was missing a few really basic features that helped a lot, like search. I know this is just anecdotal, but I've found transmission-daemon to be flawless, and I use it very heavily.

>>
>>45688683
With XBMC on it, I have it hooked up to the TV and powering ambilight that I've got on the back. I also use have it auto downloading any TV shows that I watch. It really makes for an awesome media experience. Will probably order another one - the new version (with more USBs and slightly lower power consumption) goes for $35 on aliexpress.
>>
mine's running nginx, rtorrent, ircd-hybrid, and an ftp server

it's only using 45 MB of RAM
>>
>>45688683
did you do the case with a 3d printer?
i like what you are doing and im reading about raspberry pis more and more. i dont even know what it is but im assuming its a mini computer without a display port?

also i haver to be able to program stuff in order to use it? or can i just download scripts and upload it to the raspberry pi?

how would you go about adjusting room lights with it? i mean how would you connect a computer to power cables running through your walls

what i will be doing next: read stuff about raspberry pi so i know what its all about. just yesterday i was in the 3d printer thread and were amazed as well, havent read into it much yet though
>>
>>45689000
Do you experience any slowness when playing videos? Does it take a lot of time opening new videos or is it rather seamless?

I never used xmbc. The only reason i'm not hooking up my pi with my tv is because i would have to spend money on a new wireless keyboard+mouse combo. I just looked on the play store, does xmbc remote works well with pi?
>>
>>45689046
>ircd-hybrid
ah! another great use of pi. I'd use it but i'm not much into irc's.
>ftp
why not samba?
>>
>>45689090
don't know anything about it, ftp gets the job done, and I can access it from my web browser
>>
I was thinking about doing something like this but I didnt think it would be powerful enough to transcode 1080p. Im installing arch on my old s3 to text how capable of a server it makes
>>
>>45688683
Using it as a ZNC bouncer and looking forward to install a VPN
>>
>>45689059
No slowness or any kind of stuttering while playing videos. I actually find my internet connection to be the limiting factor, and not the hardware.
I exclusively use XBMC remote and stream almost all content from my phone via DLNA. I only use the keyboard during the initial setup of Wi-Fi.
>>
These have always sort of interested me but I have zero computer engineering or soldering background.

What kind of stuff would I need to learn to do something like OP said, control lights in room with software
>>
eventually want to set mine up as an ADS-B receiver and radar server with an RTLSDR dongle.
still haven't gotten around to getting a proper antenna and other shit yet though.

>case
nah, i bought it on ebay. It's known as piblow case but mine is a rip off of that.

It's like any computer except it's cheap, small, and consumes less power. It does have a display port. HDMI in newer version and composite in older ones. Though most people like to use it without a display (called headless).

No you don't need to program to be able to use it. Though i'd recommend having some linux experience beforehand.

I will be using relays to control the light switches, that will be connected to raspberry pi. I might use wireless modules because i won't run wires from raspberry pi to every switchboard in the house.
>>45689107
with samba server, you can have the drives connected to raspi as network drives. It's like you connected the drives to your pc/laptop itself. I don't know about ftp but you can just stream videos through a samba server. I guess you'd have to download the entire file through a ftp first before watching.
>>
>>45689180
Yes this literally blasts the shit out of the Pi. Why the fuck do people continue to waste money on the RasPi?
>>
>>45689159
this

since there seems to be a big community out there, there will also be a lot of scripts available already, so programming doesnt have to be essential. just general computer understanding.
also you will have to be able to use linux

but just like you i have no idea how you would go about controlling lights in my room with a software
>>
>>45689202
sounds like raspberry pi is becoming the apple of mini computers
>>
>>45689202
>>45689180
Can you run Plan 9/Inferno on that? I wanted to get a Pi mainly for installing one of those.
>>
>>45689159
I'd say start off learning the electrical stuff to do it, then learn how to do stuff with python, because that is how you're going to be controlling stuff programmatically from the pi.
>>
>>45689202
No software/OS support on pretty much all of the RasPi clones.
>>
>>45689228
You can install every flavour of Linux and BSD.
You could install Plan9 on it but I doubt there would be any support or anything. So idk
>>
>>45689159
op here. If you have zero background with soldering and electronics, then a project that involves 220V is definitely a no-no. Start small. make a led cube or something.
I'm an electronics student but i myself am a bit unsure what will work.

If you want to learn more how to do that shit, search home automation on youtube/google/instructables.
Kevin derrah has some great tutorials on this topic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3M00K7-nT24
>>
>>45689248
i soldered some stuff in the past, but what does this have to do with the raspberry pi?
>>
>>45689248
Probably because a lot of hardware hacking involves soldering
>>
>>45689180
Before buying pi i searched for some better alternatives. I only found beaglebones and bananapi (maybe some others).

Still raspi was the only one in that range. I never stumbled around odroid C1, though if i had to guess, the reason people buy raspberry pi compared to other boards is probably because of community support. You can find a lot of supporting tutorials/articles/help in general for raspi than other boards.

Once you're familiar with raspi, you can easily move to other boards.
>>
>>45689310
The odroid c1 came out two weeks ago or something like that m8.
>>
>>45689264
That was regarding controlling lights in your room with raspberry pi. That's a hardware project. Raspberry pi in general does not need soldering experience for you to use it.
>>
>>45689333
So around the same time when i bought my pi.

Well, shit happens. I just gotta roll with the punches.
>>
>>45689310
thanks

Can these things have wifi? I might have use for one - it'd be general clandestine internet stuff.
>>
>>45689335
i understand

>>45689415
you can put a small wifi antenna into one of the usb ports. has to be compatible with whatever os you are using
>>
>>45689415
You need to connect a wifi dongle through one of the usb ports. They're pretty cheap afaik.
>>
>>45689180
>>45689202
Looks pretty good, but as it has already been mentioned the rasp has a great comunity and info avaliable. Also, in my case I wouldnt be able to connect the audio with this or other aternative boards to my old TV, while I still can with the rasp pi

>>45689415
Yes you can buy a wi-fi dongle for it, but explain what you mean by "internet stuff"
>>
>>45689159
The RasPi is capable of PWM on all GPIO pins, so you just need to make a buffer circuit using power transistors to make it handle 220V(or whatever voltage your lamps use) and program the Pi to handle whatever switches you plan to use. Shouldn't be too hard, just make sure to debounce any switches you use as inputs for the Pi.

On second thought, you'd probably be best off using optocouplers for controlling the lights since they make an air gap between the logic circuit(RasPi) and the lights.
>>
>>45689493
>optocouplers
How are those different than a relay?
>>
>>45689415
>general clandestine internet stuff.
you're a little wifi-hacker, aren't you?
>>
>>45689520
They don't suffer mechanical fatigue, are faster in switching, but can't handle voltages/currents as high as relays.

That's about it.
>>
I have cheap android stick that I installed linux on.
Using it as ssh server, hosting my website, and I made program that downloads chinese cartoons from xdcc using generated schedule

Never really used it because it has only usb and has some power problems.
When I have my hdd enclosure connected to it it works but it keeps breaking the connection so should make script to mount it back.
Also stopped wathing chinese cartoons.

Never really used the website for anything because got bored when I had to make it look good.
>>
>>45688683
Currently using it for retropie. I'm getting an external HDD tho so I'll probably make this:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Ultimate-Pi-Based-Home-Server/?ALLSTEPS
>>
>>45689532
Optocouplers also create an air gap between the logic circuit and the power circuit, so you can't fry your RasPi using them unless you fuck up royally. That's why I recommended them.

Most optocouplers can't handle mains electricity, though, so you need to use power transistors to do the actual switching.

Arc is nice, easy to use but a little slow, I just use it for transmission and wordpress
>>
>>45689672
The transfer speeds are a bitch.
The max i get is around ~5 mbps if i'm lucky.

If i watch a video and start a transfer, the video lags the entire duration of the transfer.

I think it's cause the bus is shared between Ethernet port and usb ports, Also i probably have a shit router.
>>
>>45689639
What kind of controller do you use in retropi?
>>
>>45689202
because they trust the pi, it's very easy to provide a better mini pc than the pi, but yo have to know the pi will be better and more supported than this one in the future
>>
>>45689647
Yes, that too, because they are essentially a LED that activates the gate of a transistor.
>>

>>45689808

>>45688683
No. too slow to be useful.
>>
>>45689808

Others have pointed this out but I only know from my job. Colocation is essentially renting space in another company's data center.

Like Netflix may be a colocator in an ISP's data center so they can drop a server closer to their customers.

Depending on the terms the local data center folks may or may not maintain the remote equipment.

>>
>>45689894
I did look up the definition, but how is raspberry pi being colocated?
Do you buy a raspberry pi, use it and then send it over to the company so they make a cluster of them?

Or do you set your raspberry pi connected to the internet in your own home and hence it forms a network across the world?
>>
>>45689924
idk why they are this expensive now, i got it for like 10 bucks. However this is also an option:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Gaming-Controller-for-NES-PC-Windows-Plastic-Plug-Play-Black-White-/331370131122?pt=US_Video_Game_Controllers&hash=item4d2732eeb2
>>
>>45689948
>do you set your raspberry pi connected to the internet in your own home
That wouldn't be colocation

You buy a pi, you send it to them, and they hook it up to their fast network.

I don't really use mine any more since I got a VPS which is faster and has more storage.
Still, I'm really glad I made the investment, it has served me really well for 2 years.

>>
>>45690037
For internet purposes VPS is better option (owncloud, vpn etc).
But for NAS raspi works best.
>>
>>45690056
Neat. Though a digital ocean droplet would be better i guess?
>>
>>45690079
Yeah, all the storage my pi has is its SD card. I've considered getting a cheap USB HDD and adding it there, but my pi is mounted on the wall in my garage. Mounting another device there and a power strip seems like too much work atm.

I'm lazy.

>>
>>45689752
Not the guy but NAS = Network Attached Storage. Simply connect an HDD to the PI and have it ftp (or whatever you like) accessible inside your home network (or outside your network for a private cloud)
>>
>>45690180
yes i looked stuff up avout it. seems like its way too slow for my purposes
>>
>>45688683
i run a apache server on mine, as well as a irc bot. a website might not be the best to run on it, specially since web hosting is so dirt cheap these days. but it was a great learning experience to set everything up.
>>
>>45690223
>learning experience
good point. i should really get one
>>
>>45690219

It would be slow. The Pi Network and USB share bandwidth so transferring over a network would slow transfer to the drive. It would probably be more reliable to get a cheap Buffalo or something if you really needed a cheap NAS set up. Though if you have the money Synology NAS is really nice.
>>
>>45690223
>>45690243
That's why i said it was the best investment ever.

But don't be like one of those dumbasses who buy this thing and are still clueless as to what it does. Look up stuff online and see what all it can do. If you don't think you'll want to do all that, then don't buy one. Spend your money elsewhere.

You can do that on any server. Digitalocean droplets is what i'm going for next (since i got $100 coupons on that bitch).

Still it's not a very big deal you can just host a website without knowing a whole lot about web development.

Shouldn't be too hard. You probably will find some arduino tutorials using this sensor, maybe not for raspberry pi. Still it won't be hard. That's a fairly simple project.

I have a cool ssh setup on my phone already with widgets for each light. What's ncat and what do you like about using it?
>>45693121
oh no. I ran into that problem while wiring up. I wire up the relay on top of the light switch, so that you can still use the light switch as normal. Cool thing about the setup is that all the lights shut off automatically when rpi can't ping my phone.

Oh I misunderstood, yeah the relays would be useless when you toggle the light on manually. That's why I try to stick to using the relays to toggle the lights as much as I can.

If your tv supports hdmi-cec you don't need a keyboard/mouse. It takes a second or two to open videos from my windows smb share, but that's more probably due to the hard drives spinning up.

You can access that over network (with a wlan module or NIC) or even USB, yes. The latter is probably more something for Linux users, though.

until 2010 i was using a computer without an ethernet.

I want to get one and use it as "portable samba server"
to solve the issue of my nexus low storage.
1. Have the RPi to automount and share every USB flash drive that is plugged in.
2. Plug in a WiFi USB adapter and broadcast SSID to connect to and view the files on the USB flash drive as well as controll the pi.
Is this possible?
Also what do I need to make it? the WiFi adapter to be precise.
Finally could this solve the badusb issue?
>>
>>45703897
Yes all that is possible. Though carrying an otg cable with a pen drive might better suit your needs (unless you need all that data while charging as well)

You'd need a wifi module. Look around for ones that work natively with linux. i think the cheap ones on ebay for a few dollars might work too. I guess you should be able to make a portable wifi hotspot as well. I don't have any experience with this so confirm with ddg.

You'll need a battery pack to power the pi.

I don't know about the badusb issue, what is it?
>>
>>45689189
>with samba server, you can have the drives connected to raspi as network drives. It's like you connected the drives to your pc/laptop itself.

I was told that samba is a bad idea on the pi.
>>
>>45704225
Naah i'm watching videos right now via samba server that im running in my house.

The only problem is transfer speeds are a bitch. You want something with SATA port inbuilt if you want good transfer speeds. But since you're using pen drives, it won't affect performance that much.

So far i have never had any problems with it.

To be clear.

The HDD is connected to pi.
Pi is connected through router.

I use my windows laptop/desktop to access the HDD that appears as a network drive on my windows 7 (pic related).

I can access the files on this drive as if the HDD was connected to the laptop itself. I view it on my default player, vlc.

And the file size is like ~170 mb for ~20 mins. It's an avi file and sometimes glitches appear during the start of the video. It runs smoothly during most of the video.

The Pi is not overclocked. It's running raspian. I'm op you can check what else i'm running in my original post.

Naah raspi is slow at transfer. If i'm copying something through the HDD the video starts lagging. I can then see vlc loading chunks of video.

Yes it's on 192.168.1.17 for now. You need to edit some config files. There are many guides on it. I forgot what file it was. it's just setting the default ip, gateway, etc. Easy shit.

Yes you can configure the samba server to prevent writing. It's also simple editing of a config file. And yes, there are lots of tutorials on it. Just go and search. There's lots of stuff out there.

I have an odroid U3, and an odroid W, and their stuff is really solid. Super easy; no compiling your own damn kernel.

Just download their image (14.04) and dd that junk to an sd card or their eMMC modules, and it will just werk.
