NEW out today: Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ (A Plus) [please read description] = £25.99 including delivery @ The Pi Hut
Found 15th NovFound 15th Nov
Was introduced & available today (15.11.18)... PLEASE NOTE: this is not the successor to the currently 'fastest' Pi 3 B+ model, but has improvements over the previous Pi 1 A… Read more

I get what you’re saying. At the same time this is an upgrade to the Pi 1 A+. You also need to factor in that for what these are intended for 1GB would be overkill. Quadcore 64bit might seem a bit odd, it doesn’t require the design of a different processor.


I can't think of it like this because the 3B+ came first. Chronology is an integral part of my issue with this - how long certain models have been out, how long ago certain models received 512MB, 1GB etc. For example I bought a Zero 3 years ago with 512MB ram for £5. Does this £23 version really only have the same RAM as a £5 model from 3 years ago?


Been thinking about getting one of these for a while, not necessarily this model or even this brand? I'm aware there are competitors, are they worth looking into?


If it make it easier. Why not think of the B as an upgrade to 1GB or RAM and 4USB ports? That way the A isn’t cut down anything.


This is a 3A+. It's a cut-down version of the 3B+ which has 1GB ram. I'm saying fine - cut the ethernet port and several USB ports to save money and board size - this has always been the philopsophy of the A. But cutting ram to 512MB is just mean and silly in 2018 (nearly 2019). A quadcore 64-bit system with 512MB ram is idiotic.

Sorry, changed title a little so hopefully won't happen again. But where would you get any version of Raspberry Pi for £10.99?


I was over-excited & read this as "raspberry pi 4" and not a 4 port hub. Oh well.

Sending mine back. Doesn't pick HD channels, picture quaility is poor on the SD channels it does tune into and I get constant buffering when using with my RPi 3 B+.


I just tried this using my RPi 2 and it's not up to the job. Unfortunately I can't currently find my RPi 3.


Does anyone know (or how to find out) the limitions of using this HAT with additional HATs/addons? I'm thinking about using this with amp & DAC HATs, if possible.


You presume correct :). Tvheadend will always try to re-use tuners where possible. Thankfully the SPI is fast enough for sending a complete mux, so no hardware PID filtering is needed! If you really wanted you could hook up an additional USB tuner to access more channels. How many you can record/stream will depend on your storage medium, SD cards aren't known to be fast. Just remember if you do connect anything via USB it's sharing that one bus between everything, including the Ethernet! So recording to an external network drive and live streaming at the same time may cause issues, but that (again) depends on how many streams (and the bitrate) are going over USB. I haven't received mine yet so I can't test/push it to the limits until it arrives. :(


Hi Grazie, I found what was on each mux for Bilsdale on this page : As you can see it details all the muxes available and what channels they provide. The PSB3 is the one with the channels I've mentioned on. In Kodi (running on my Nvidia Shield) when you go to the live TV part, I just went to the guide, went to the three HD channels and pressed record for all of them and they just started recording. I then selected the fourth channel, chose "watch" and it played with no problems. I presume the reason that the Pi can handle it (I'm using a Pi 3B) is because it is only recording the streams and the nvidia is actually doing the decoding. If I chose a channel that it on a different mux while it is recording, I just get a message saying no available adapter. Hope this makes sense, but if you have anymore questions just ask and I'll try to answer them.

Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (Latest Model B Plus) £31.79 @ The Pi Hut

10% code is back when spending over £20. £28.80 + £2.99 delivery.

BTW: This deal has expierewd


It's not Emacs.


IDE can make a programmer lazy. But if you desperate have a look here


Does VIM know the syntax for each language and can correct syntax? Nothing wrong with it as a text editor. But if you're programming/scripting why make your life harder than it needs to be.


I've got a few older models as well, but I don't seem to get usability out of them. I use my Pi 3 B+ at the moment as a smart home server running node-red. Basically to fill in for the limitations of my smart home devices (Google Home, Alexa etc). Things such as controlling my TV, wake on lan, and running batch and shell scripts for various tasks.

You can run pi-hole on a Pi Zero W which you can buy for a tenner. I do.


It’s as close as I’d get to figuring it out. this thread may aswell be in Japanese..


Do I put my router in the pie to create pi-hole? (embarrassed)


They cant (not at a resonabile speed). Get an Odroid C2...

Agree with most N64 games, but Mario Kart plays superbly. This is awesome.


I can't comment if this is the most 'powerful feature rich Pi out there' as there are other OS's that let you use the Pi as a network media library (pretty cool!) or even a unbranded Alexa type Pi too. Just search online for different Pi uses. For RetroPi you'll need a video game controller and game USB cable (not a USB charger cable, as I made this mistake -I couldn't tell the difference just by looking), a micro SD card and a USB memory stick to transfer between PC and retroPie. All instructions online. Google is your friend.


It does not run N64 well enough. Much better with 16bit classics to be honest.


Only if you're running stretch


Me too just found out about pie hole! Very impressed

Its not a deal but available for sale.. roughly 1980 left...

Hey, which outlet?


Just had a quick look on eBay and an issue of #57 is about to end at £35 plus £5 postage


Yes. This is not a deal, since nobody, anywhere, has any AND all the shops that are advertising it are all showing the same price. There is one exception (which is still only pre-order) of a german outlet that has it for €24.98. Though P&P to the UK might negate any savings.


Yes they did, but they have said that was heavily subsidised and won't be repeated.


All fun and games but the magazine MagPi offered these for no extra charge, and the magazine cost £5.99. Check it

Great, thanks!


Pihole needs to be running 24/7 - so don't turn the pi off when you turn the TV off if running kodi on the same box.




You can certainly run retropie and Kodi on the same one [ it will only ever be running 1 of them at once anyway ] Not sure what sort of processor hot Pi Hole is to know whether you can run it and Kodi/retropie at the same time


Thanks. Can I use one Pi for all three simultaneously? I.e. Pi-hole, retropie with kids games & Kodi for streaming or will I need three different ones?

I think the postage is £2.50. The problem is to do with the profit, but more connected to the availability of production capacity in Wales as the production lines give more time to making the Pi3B and other things for the distribution partners, these have a higher profit margin. Because of the limited production time available for Zero they have been in short supply and so RPF decreed a 1 per purchase constraint in an attempt to get them spread round more fairly.


For a 10 year old a Pi3B would be a better option. Quite a bit more expensive (£30ish), but more responsive. People tend to put zeros into projects rather than using them interactively.


OMG I wouldn't want that going on while I am trying to watch TV.


I'm using Hyperion, my set up is quite simple as i only want the full light experience when watching Blu-rays which i do through Kodi and the rest of the time i want a static subtle light as you get from traditional backlights. Personally think it's too much for normal TV watching but if you want that you'll get into cobbling hdmi convertors and image grabbers together which can be fraught with problems. The guide on Hyperion's site makes basic set up sound overly complicated but there are some simple guides on YouTube, look for the most recent ones as Hyperion is open source and therefore ever changing, Great Scott's latest using a zero w isn't bad. Two tips, make sure you get a hefty power supply, at least 20A for 5m strip, will run you about £13 from Amazon, no cheaper direct from China, and spend the extra to get APA102 60/m LEDs, much less likely to have any issues setting them up, colour accuracy is better and effects are smoother, the will run you £30-40 from Aliexpress or silly money if you buy locally. Make sure you tap the power in at several places to avoid patchy colour. Ignore the shaky start butthisgives you a decent idea of what's possible...


Thanks for posting this. I had a Pi Zero W and a couple of spare 40 pin headers in my basket there from earlier today. Glad I spotted this and saved a few £ :)

Anyone else find the Pi slow as hell when using the latest version of Rasbian. e.g. chromium maxes out the processor and can barely load a webpage.


Make sure you register your device with FlightAware to get the upgraded membership (Valued at £80/m or something!).


I got the aerial you recommend and now I can track planes to may hearts content, thanks :)


does this not have the pins, to connect directly into a LCD display, instead of through the HDMI?


It's fine for octopi so long as you don't use the camera live. I found viewing the live camera caused 3d prints to stutter on pi zero, no issues on pi3.

Thank you very much for this! Spent forever trying to get someone to give me a clear answer. Looking forward to this now :)


It would work fine. I've built a magic mirror using a zero and a Pi 1.. they are more or less identical in terms of how much power they have . You don't need a lot of power for a magic mirror. Good luck.


What are your thoughts on attempting to get a magi mirror 2 running on a pi zero? Once its up and running would you see an issues with processing power on the pi using any modules?


You must become apoplectic when you need to send a postcard or letter then... (_;)


Agreed. Also is 1 per customer. I mean if your willing to pay £2.50 delivery each time...1 per order?

If I didn't already have a nice case I would buy it, just to support Kodi for all the good work they have done, so its hot from me.


Sure, you can get cheaper perspex cases if you like, but this is a nice case.


And what so cold about it?


I have one of the earlier version of this. Same shape just without the branding. Its a nice case and the Pi CPU is physically attached to the case via a silicon pad. This turns the whole case into a heatsink. Worth a look especially if you have the Pi 3 which can have thermal issues.


That is an option.
