Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest product in the popular Raspberry Pi range of computers. It offers ground-breaking increases in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. For the end user, Raspberry Pi 4 Model B provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems. This product's key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display support at resolutions up to 4K via a pair of micro-HDMI ports, hardware video decode at up to 4Kp60, 1GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability (via a separate PoE HAT add-on). The dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
  • Broadcom BCM2711, quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz
  • 1GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM
  • 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, BLE
  • True Gigabit Ethernet
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 Ports
  • Fully backwards compatible 40-pin GPIO header
  • 2x Micro HDMI ports supporting up to 4K 60Hz video resolution

I don't know why anyone would want the 1GB version unless money is really tight. As the 4GB version is only £20 more, it's a no-brainer for me.

To add to my others thanks op
Thanks to the poster on a previous thread that provided advice on building a pi-hole. It was simple to set-up and has been one of the best tech benefits I've ever had.

Considering the next project and would love a home VPN to access when I'm travelling. Has anyone got one of those working?

I also need to finish the upgrade with my 8-year-old of a pi controlled car. I started with the camjam which was poor, so purchased a new chassis but need time to figure electronics basics (even how best to fasten wires to the batteries avoiding soldering). I don't have a lot of time and 8-year-olds don't have a lot of patience!

I simply followed the instructions here pi-hole.net/ and directed my google wi-fi to the pi's IP address. The other poster gave me encouragement (given my DNS ignorance) that it wouldn't slow down the network as, in fact, it speeds up page loading times no end.

Here are the stats from the admin panel (not sure what time range):

It goes some way to stop the family, particularly our kids, being exposed to junk adverts and trackers. The blocklists include malicious sites, inappropriate material and we still get Google and Sky's family friendly content filters. I wish I had done it ages ago.

I've been running Pi-hole for ages now although it self destructed a week or so ago. No idea why, may have been just a memory card issue but it was completely screwed. Didn't take long to rebuild though.
Thank you will go check it out as have a spare pi 3 lying about somewhere.

Good point Josh. Let's face it though, it's just a matter of time before they do. Personally, I'm looking forward to see how Chrome OS runs on the 4GB version. I know it can run on the 3B, but with only 1GB ram, I bet it's awful.

I setup Softether VPN on a Windows PC successfully and I'm an idiot, I was then going to try on a Pi but haven't got around to it yet. However Softether VPN works well given the no cost involved, lets me connect to my home network when I'm away using open wifi etc. softether.org/

I did through a long winded tutorial a whole ago, worked grand... Host it on a VM now though. This looks promising to set up easily on the pi however
pivpn.io/
Easiest way I've found if doing either/both Pihole and VPN is to use DietPi.
It's a really really really simple Distro, with text based menus to pick and install various bits of software.
I have mine running Pihole, PiVPN, and a streaming service that takes a line-in and lets me stream it straight to Sonos.
PiVPN is a super simple VPN solution, and means I can VPN in from my phone if I'm not sure about my connection. I can also wake up my Plex server if I'm at someone else's house, ready to stream.

If using Pihole, I highly recommend grabbing a load of the block lists from here: firebog.net/
I have over a million domains on my blocklist, without any major impact to the family's browsing.

That’s a very large blacklist. Have you had any problems with any services? When I had a blacklist that kind of size, it broke literally everything.

In the pi-hole instructions it also has links to sites 'whitelists' - mostly google services like youtube. The pi-hole admin console makes it easy to disable pi-hole for a few minutes just to check if that is the cause of any issue, but I haven't had a problem.

I have a VPN (PiVPN) running on my Raspberry Pi v1 and use OpenVPN to utilise my own broadband connection (from iPhone and Windows PC) when I'm abroad or using public wifi... works great, but there's a few gotcha's. I can give more advice if needed, but to make life easier, you'll need to remember to:
- sort DynDNS (configured on your router ideally, and managed using something like freeddns.noip.com )
- disable LZ4 (PiVPN may have been updated to have this disabled by default since I installed it to be honest) community.openvpn.net/ope…CLE
- extend the default CRL expiry (which is 6 months)

... all are easy to do (when you know how)

I followed this guidance for the base install, even though it has changed slightly since it was published (it's all menu driven though so quite straight forward, and the guidance still gives a good indication and explanation of what to do though):

The only way would be via some sort of USB analogue video capture device. I'm not sure it would be cost effective if it was even possible.

Suggest you install OpenVPN on the same PI thats running Pi-hole, useful guide here:

youtu.be/WA7…ovQ

I have both installed on a PI 3 and it runs Ok, just remember for the VPN to work you’ll need some way of knowing what your external routers IP address is, it is likely to change so register a domain. This maybe helpful:

freeddns.noip.com/

Update :ahhh sorry for a similar repeat suggestion as already posted.

Too right. I am going for 4GB, I noticed the 3B+ struggled with You-Tube or chromium browser. When I did plot 3D graphs on Mathematica it struggled, so I am definitely going 4GB ram.
Thanks @LV123 and @duncanhill for your kind replies. I will follow up on your suggestions!

There's USB a video capture dongle - search for "2Video-2-Pi" but it's only standard definition

Alternatively there's do a couple of dedicated cameras; - "visible" and "infra red" (strictly speaking the infrared version is just the ordinary camera which hasn't had the IR filter installed) - might be easier (and cheaper) to bodge a whole unit up yourself
