fooling people with 2.50 shipping charge.. Either allow people to collect it or reduce the charge.. They sent it by normal second class post with no tracking but charging 2.5 as their profit. Big sellers dont sell Pi Zero
Free shipping on orders over £50 ...

They do a "Pi Zero + Adaptors RPI-009" package, but I can't find anywhere that states what adaptors come with it. Is this information listed anywhere on the site?
It shows you in the picture on the website!

Precisely - it SHOWS you, it doesn't TELL you. Why state the obvious?

Would like one. Wouldn't have a bloody clue what to do with it.
Some ideas:
1. Home automation system
2. Hi fi audio Sonos type system
3. Retro gaming
4. Learning to program (to learn to program you must learn these two topics Algorithms and Data Structures, any other guide on programming is useless otherwise, that is if you want to learn properly)
5. Electronics lab
6 Install and learn to use Linux and the command line (very useful for a range of computer topics such as networking and sysadmin)
7. CCTV system
8. Kod...no way never! :)
8 works just fine mate.
​i have installed openelec on a pi 2, sounds Curs briefly once în a while, played with ovetclocking, no joy.
kodi is nice but phone and chromecast works just as good.
my pi sits in a drawer, one day will use it for VPN/net control

I've been using a RP2 with Kodi for the past 5 months as primary use.
No complaints at all, and no overclocking used.
I tried different versions:
- Openelec
- Retropie + Kodi Plugin, with default boot to Kodi.

The second is my current setup just for the versatility of using the system as a retro-gaming console as in when required without having to swap micro-SD cards.

All in all I am extremely satisfied with Kodi running on Raspberry Pi 2.

They sell stereo audio out which you solder to your PhatDac (I'll give links below), then you have an output to go in your amp, stick some QSB audio speakers (£15 from Amazon, thanks to RustySpoons who originally mentioned them to me) and you have a cheap Sonos style unit for less than £50https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/phat-dachttps://shop.pimoroni.com/products/dual-phono-connector-for-phat-dachttps://www.amazon.co.uk/SoundScience-QSB-Desktop-Speakers-Technology/dp/B004W269X4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472376564&sr=8-1&keywords=qsb+audio
How would this work? The QSB's only have a USB connection and not phono.
https://volumio.org/forum/soundscience-qsb-compatibe-with-rasp-what-about-bbb-t280.html
My question is how are you connecting the speakers to the Pi? It only has a USB connection.. plugging the USB directly into the pi doesn't seem to give any sound? I don't think there is enough power to drive them just off the Pi.

Can anyone tell me if this is okay to stash this in the same drawer as all the arduino unos / clones / stm8 etc etc that I have bought for no apparent reason.


​yes,excellent idea. I did the same with my science of Cambridge mk14 in the early eighties. Only to dig it out again 5 years ago and flog it for £350!, You never know?

Kodi is the lowest common denominator in modern computing, it's as ubiquitous as stupidity which is handy as there's common ground there.

amen brother! so many people buy a pi just to play some movies, and completely miss the point that they have a full linux server/desktop, photography/video, emulation and electronics platform sitting there. even worse you have the morons that just want to put windows on it.

will this run kodi without struggling?

Yes. But not in raspbian.
Download either:

libreelec for basic add-on only Kodi,

openelec for slightly larger build but more stable isenguard Kodi

Or

OSMC for superslick large build customisable Kodi.

I have run both open and libreelec and have exodus and istream running with very little load times.

​better off with a pi 3b for kodi,i use my zero as a desktop.basic browsing and calendar.
​and what OS you run for that?

I pondered that but then I asked myself... why not get an atom for that?
Better keep embedded for its own purposes :)

PS: Just received mine. Ordered on Friday delivered today.
Really annoying you can only get one, I would have gotten 2.

Just curious. I am a Pi enthusiast but have yet to invest in a zero. What are people doing with them and why didn't you go for a normal pi? Not being critical, just interested.


​I have 3, one is for always on torrenting and my other 2 are projects, one inside a nes controller and one inside a gameboy for emulation. Normal pi are just too big for this kind of project

Asking an extra £4 for a camera adaptor is a little off. Then all the original Pi Zero buyers will be ticked off by now seeing the camera port added 6 months later. At some point it makes more sense just to buy a Pi 3.
Why did they have to do that? You need an adaptor for the PSU, USB port, HDMI and the camera. You have to spend three times the cost of the board on buying adaptors. I know they wanted to make it smaller, but using the same connectors as the original Pi wouldn't have made that much difference.

You don't have to buy the adaptors, by your reasoning why did they even release the Zero. It's a cut down version of the standard Pi, buying all the adaptors to turn it into one defeats the object.

Can you watch Amazon instant video on this raspberry pi? How?
Kodi runs slowly on the Zero IIRC.
Runs fine for me.

Doesn't cope with the HEVC codec though, which a lot of things are starting to use now. If it did, I'd probably stick OSMC on mine and get rid of my Android Box.

what do you mean extra £4 it's still priced at £4 + P&P
It's still £4 with the camera CSI interface but if you want to easily plug the Raspberry Pi camera into it then you need:https://thepihut.com/collections/raspberry-pi-zero/products/raspberry-pi-zero-camera-adapter
Which costs another £4.

Ahh I see what you mean now, £4 for a bit of ribbon cable i.e. the same cost as the pi itself is ridiculous.

Thanks so much for the heads up. Grabbed one from pihut and one from pimoroni. Time to make a little retro game console inside a gameboy shell :)

if anyone is interested, i randomly found this in the imgur gallery a few weeks ago - someone has basically made a "console" out of raspberry pi zero and an old SNES cartridge. If you look at the internal wiring, it actually looks quite simple to follow so if i can get hold of the bits, i'm going to give it a go myselfhttp://imgur.com/gallery/09Rs8
Check MagPi magazine there is one with Pi zero project that puts everything into one controller, inc battery.

I saw that, but it seemed a little too complicated for a beginner like me. This one actually seems just about followable.
AJarjis
How did you order two? The site's telling me only 1 unit per order. Did you have to use multiple accounts?
the site doesn't actually stop you ordering more than one - your whole order just gets cancelled manually later on.

So try for 2 and end up with zero ;)

To be honest, now I start to hate this kinda of deal. Why is the zero always out of stock? Such a tiny thing with such large demand. I just dont understand it. How can't they make more stocks, if they truly want to sell it????
production cant keep up with the demand they posted a few days ago that they had made 5000 units or something like that they are really cheap and easy to get your foot in the door with kodi and retro projects the price is also cheaper than a audrino aswel


​don't get it why not just have more Pi0s made and shipped from China if the UK based factory isn't capable of meeting the demand. it will probably be even cheaper so good for everybody.
More in stock! Be quick!

same here going real fast these are hard to get but great for kodi.
But are they?
The pi2 can just about perform all the Kodi functions, but the pi 1 (of which this is a similar spec RAM wise) struggles in some regards.
I have been struggling with putting plex media server on my pi2 over xmas. Good fun, if not infuriating too.
Have you tried a search for plex HTPCGUIDES there is a great installer and guide for installing plex server on pi2 it worked great for me

Hi. That's what I used.

Still having trouble streaming some files, especially to my XB1 using plex app.

Still messing about with it. I would like a plex option to turn off transcoding (as I think that is the primary issue I am having) but it aint possible ( i was serving files to all my devices without transcoding from my NAS share without issues, but love the plex system).
Thanks :) £10.50 for the pi and cables with delivery. Looks like they have just about sold out of all bundles now.
Whoop! Thanks OP. Mine is going into a MagicMirror

(except not using Chromium as in this guide, as Chromium and the Pi 1 is not a good combo)

With the Nordic chip you have to write your own code. It's still operating at 2.4GHz and the chip does all the comms through hardware.

It's what I need to update my blinds control, central heating and door bell.
Gort1951
Ok. Most of these chips are ok on some pins with 5v.
500mA seems a lot, not much good for battery use then.
13.5mA at RX 2Mbps on the Nordic chip.
The PAM2306 used on RP can supply 1A per channel so it's probably not enough if you are powering other stuff.
You might have to supply power to the wifi card separately.
The 500ma is peak, like when the chip is booting. It's not the best for power use but it's wifi, the nordic chip isn't wifi.
You might get away with it on a Pi 2 but on the other Pis (including the zero) you don't want to draw over 150ma from the 3v3 pins.

The esp8266 is a great chip for embedded wifi projects, and it's so cheap! But you probably wouldn't use it with the RPi.
Just had a look at the spec sheet for this chip and it seems to use 215mA at max right down to 62mA.

Looks like a powerful chip and you can use the 32bit cpu as a separate cpu.

That link you gave, shows an image of the wifi module with a separate psu.
