  • Peter Scargill Blog Improvements by Peter Scargill: All code and images now in the blo. Background issue solved, had to abandon md-utton for images and go back to button - but I'm stuck right now with css in the button - need to get it all in the support template and pref make a new button type based on button with the mods seen (could call it ps_image_button for example) - I need help from someon with more CSS experience than I have.

  • Peter Scargill Xiaow Q8 1080P IP Camera by Peter Scargill: Excellent Maarten I'm glad it works for you. Works for me but I must follow up the ONVIF compatibility issue - it CLAIMS to be ONVIF compatible but up to now I can't get it running on "onvifer" on Android. If you find out better, please do let us know in here. Works just fine and high quality on it's own app however. Marvellous. Nov 13, 19:56

  • ZemiSmart vs Sonoff by Michael Mauch: Normally the capacitor on these "no neutral" light switches goes parallel to the light, not parallel to the switch. The switch gets its power through the light, and the capacitor might be needed to keep the LED light off, instead of blinking. Nov 13, 17:49
  • A9 Mini WIFI HD 1080P Wireless IP Camera by mark: I have the black version, and was hoping to use the live stream as P2P so I could monitor the field of view while recording water voles. Within direct wifi range. I don't have the WPA2 password, tried 8888.. Any idea what I can do about just using it P2P as a viewfinder with my android phone and still save videos using the built in DVR in HD on the microSD of course? A poor mans FPV like they use on drones is what I hoped. Since the cloud servers are now all down, this is about the only use for these cameras. Everyone like you should claim a full refund. You will find you cannot remote view away from your home router wifi anymore. Nov 13, 17:33
  • DrFragle and MrShark A95X Android 9 TV Box by DrFragle and MrShark: with vlc you don't even need ds file, as it can browse the network directly, i use it so are you using it via eth, 2.4 or 5ghz wifi? i use 5ghz as it's more free than the other, less issues... but i never tried a 4k video, don't have such a tv Nov 13, 13:46
  • A95X Android 9 TV Box by Hans Otten: MX Player and DS File (I have a Synology NAS) works, it is good enough on my working room TV, but not perfect on the big main room screeen, 4K TV reveals visual artefacts. Must be a lower level Mali 450 driver issue? Oh well, it is so cheap, good enough! Nov 13, 12:38
  • DrFragle and MrShark A95X Android 9 TV Box by DrFragle and MrShark: try using vlc or mx player i use them because both can accelerate video playing and i'm used to watch tv series at least at 1.23x ๐Ÿ˜€ Nov 13, 09:42

  • Peter Scargill Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Smartphone by Peter Scargill: Don't write off the Pocophone, it is FAR from old - last update was last week to MIUI 11. No sign of Xiaomi losing interest in it yet. However as the Note 8 ALSO can handle the Pixel camera app, it should give the Pocophone a run for it's money. My wife will be using the Note 8 - I'm sticking with my Pocophone (just fitted a new screen cover and a snazzy purple semi-opaque mirror cover so it is all sparkly new again). The Note 8 basic camera resolution is of course higher, no getting away from it. As phones, both work perfectly so not much to talk about there. Nov 13, 08:44

  • Julian Knight Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Smartphone by Julian Knight: I'd be interested to know how this compares to the PocoPhone. Looking for a replacement for my iPhone 6 and don't want to pay the Apple tax. Been thinking about the PocoPhone but slightly concerned that it is a little old now. But I notice that it is still more expensive than this phone. Nov 13, 01:09

  • Blog Improvements by petslane: can you provide example code so I can understand the problem. do I understand correctly that you have rectangular and transparent button, containing background image that looks round and when you press, then corners became gray (or yellow if 'highlight' class is used)? if i understood you correctly, then: - option 1, make button also round with css property 'border-radius' - option 2, use ':active' css selector to overwrite default background color to transparent Nov 12, 18:06
  • Peter Scargill Blog Improvements by Peter Scargill: Hi Petslane An image button, instead of having a background colour (a tad boring) and a highlight colour (which I've made yellow above) uses a .png image (on my PI in the NODE-RED public folder I have folders called myImages and myIcons - I've blogged about that - and so the button can use an image as the background and another image for when pressed.... but as I'm using round images - and I've made the background transparent (don't want to rely on a particular dashboard background) I'm seeing a default highlight grey colour when you press a button (only in the transparent corners). I need to know how to turn that off. Nov 12, 17:51
  • Blog Improvements by petslane: What is image button? Nov 12, 17:43
  • Peter Scargill Blog Improvements by Peter Scargill: Thanks Steve - I've just updated the item about buttons - all fixed except for (on non-rectangular IMAGE buttons) removing the default highlighting which blights the corners. Any ideas? Nov 12, 17:08
  • Steve Lenehan Blog Improvements by Steve Lenehan: The site does seem to load quicker - it must be massive by now.

  • Peter Scargill Node Red Dashboard Template Buttons Updated by Peter Scargill: NEARY THERE - using a CSS VARIABLE (I'll document it shortly) a helper (Aidan) and I finally got the highlight image defined in the button.... the only thing left to resolve, given a round button, is the damned default highlight colour around the corners - how to stop or remove that.... ideas please...

  • Dave McLaughlin A Better Raspberry Pi Case by Dave McLaughlin: I want to mount the enclosure onto the back of a mounting plate that takes the RPi3 and the standard PI LCD.

  • Peter Scargill Node Red Dashboard Template Buttons Updated by Peter Scargill: So NOW I'm experimenting - backgrounds work.. a crude attempt at images almost works - I need to get the highlighted image out of the style node and have it passed to the style node by the button node. I also have a slightly annoying background highlight on touch which I didn't put in which needs removing somehow when using images... and yes I know I could make the style node... Ideas, Petslane? .filled { height: 100% !important; padding: 0 !important; margin: 0 !important; } .not-filled { height: 100% !important; padding: 0 !important; margin: 0 !important; background-color: transparent !important; } .nr-dashboard-template { padding: 0; margin: 0; } .rounded { border-radius: 10px 10px 10px 10px; font-size: 18px; } .highlight { background-color: yellow !important; } .images { background-size: 100% 100%; background-repeat: no-repeat; } .highlight-image { background-image: url('/myicons/heat0.png') !important; } $('.vibrate').on('click', function() { navigator.vibrate(80); }); $('.touched').on('mousedown', function() { $(this).addClass('highlight'); setTimeout(() => $(this).removeClass('highlight'), 100); }); $('.touched-image').on('mousedown', function() { $(this).addClass('highlight-image'); setTimeout(() => $(this).removeClass('highlight-image'), 200); }); and the button..

  • Bob Green A Better Raspberry Pi Case by Bob Green: Dave, I am not sure exactly what you are trying to do but would PCB spacers work?

  • Peter Scargill Solar HD1080P IP67 Camera by Peter Scargill: Hi Read the blog updates, this camera has proven to be unreliable (i.e. left unmanned it has died and I have no way to reset it as I am not currently at that location) and hence I have not done any further work on it. The only SOLAR camera that has proven to be 100% in an unmanned situation up to now is the MINUTEMEN which I've blogged about elsewhere in here. So the short answer is I can't help with your current query. Nov 10, 23:13

  • Peter Scargill Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape by Peter Scargill: Wiring would cost more and not help greedy sales people sell more houses. Nov 10, 12:21
  • Alex Van der Hoek Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape by Alex Van der Hoek: Thanks Bob, anything can be made as Pete shows regularly ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yes suitable wiring needed. My point was more that houses these days hardly need 220v anymore, but low voltage usage has exploded. So away with the 220 sockets i say and build houses with 24 or 36v grid and smart switchable wall sockets with a choice of output voltages 32 for powerusers like washing en cooling, 12 or 5 for most other bitsnbobs... ๐Ÿ™‚ Nov 10, 11:50
  • Bob Green Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape by Bob Green: It is no problem to run a low voltage supply in a local area like an office / workshop / lab etc. Just get a computer power supply or a SMPS unit and run the various voltages to some suitable sockets / connectors around the area. One needs to use suitable sized wiring because whilst the voltage is low the current can be quite high and also to minimize voltage drop. Then make some leads up to connect to your ESP's, Pi's, Arduino's etc. I actually ran 12 VDC from a 20A supply and dropped it on a local socket to 8 volts (or anything you want) using an off the shelf step down module to feed devices with on board regulators. As Peter would say 'It works a treat' and has de-cluttered my workspace. Nov 10, 11:28

  • Peter Scargill Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape by Peter Scargill: Sorry if I'm mising this Brian, I dont hang paintings - oh I SEE, well that has to be strong. Well I've been trying to order 2 more rolls of Gorilla Tape, Amazon can't deliver until late next week, CPC looked good until I noted that despite a good price and no postage, they stuck a ยฃ2 "handling charge" on the end. I asked why? The reply came back "I'm sorry we are now closed until Monday". Their loss. "Command tapes" ? Well, I can get to B&Q this weekend.. I have other mains sockets to mount so this could be worth investigating.... I have NEVER come across anything to touch this clear tape. 24 hours later (hang on) yup, wall is rock solid (painted plasterboard) and side of my beige tower - 2 mains sockets - and shelf - 7 way usb - all rock solid. Utterly amazing. The white Chinese foam you get in supermarkets ((UK and Spain) , Poundstretcher and B&M is not worth a LIGHT. This is exciting for me (I know, easily pleased). ONE narrow DS foam tape I tried a while ago - 3M pro stuff was way better (stains after a while) but not in the same league as this new clear stuff. I guess new people will think I work for them... no. Nov 9, 14:04

  • DrFragle and MrShark A Better Raspberry Pi Case by DrFragle and MrShark: measuring with caliper the screws have 2.3mm diameter, but that includes the fillet, so i think they're 2.0mm? there are 2 types of screws, same fillet, different head, about 1cm long... no way to fit in spacers... i instead soldered the 2 fan pins of this case UNDER the rpi4, so i now have full 40pin free header, and added Thermal compound between chips and turrets, because that blue conductive tape left too much free space and they would not adhere as expected...

  • Alex Van der Hoek Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape by Alex Van der Hoek: It is a nightmare. I hope the powers that be, come to their building senses and put low-voltage rails in future houses. 220V is almost obsolete. As tapes go, i love the tesa powerbond. it is of the foam kind so you need get some extra few mm of height of whatever you're sticking. And if you want to use it as a non-definite solution, ie, may want to remove the object at some point, you will need to leave some tape exposed, removing it by pulling/streching the tape, leaves no residue though! https://www.tesa.com/en-gb/consumer/tesa-powerbond-ultra-strong.html Not cheap, but comes in different strengths. Vertical bonding, no techblogger-wife joke intended here, is no problem for most surfaces. Nov 9, 07:19

  • Steve Lenehan November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by Steve Lenehan: Just some extra information - I have tried a variety of other Tasmotized devices (sonoffs and d1 minis)- of various releases and access points in the original location and they do not have the reset problem - only the Anoopsyche plugs - whether the issue is power monitoring, ex tuya devices or device specific I cannot say but the sonoff s2x is showing RSSI of only 56% way below that of the Anoopsyche and still functions perfectly.

  • Peter Scargill BigTimer by Peter Scargill: Quick answer?Put a function on the end? Nov 7, 10:49
  • BigTimer by Basse: I dont want to use "off" feature, and not timer 2. How do I disable the send of "off" and timer 2? I cant see any "disabled" in the drop down menus? Nov 7, 10:06
  • DrFragle and MrShark Teckin SP23 Smart Socket + Tuya-Convert by DrFragle and MrShark: the bin file you're saying, i think is the one DigiblurDIY named in recent videos, which just tries repeatedly to connect to the vtrust ssid created by tuya-convert, so you don't need to use your phone for that... nothing to do with finding the 3 gpios used by Pete's device, though...

  • Teckin SP23 Smart Socket + Tuya-Convert by Nigel Holland: There is a bin file to flash to a d1 mini which does the same as a using a mobile. Just power the d1 from the usb on the pi and you have a easier option. Nov 7, 09:57

  • DrFragle and MrShark November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by DrFragle and MrShark: 20 hours, not a single reboot/flicker Nov 7, 08:17
  • DrFragle and MrShark Teckin SP23 Smart Socket + Tuya-Convert by DrFragle and MrShark: well, on previous (or original firmware) model it worked, the problem is they changed their pinouts and tasmota guys are not aware of the new one... Nov 7, 08:09
  • Brian Gowland WiFi GPS Dual Lens Car DVR Camera by Brian Gowland: Yep, I get how it's designed. My point is for the rear facing camera to be of most use, the vertical access of centre of cameras has to be in line with dead centre of the car.The rear camera needs to look directly between the backs of the driver and passenger seats. As a result the display and buttons are offset slightly to the left hence my observation it's designed for LHD cars.This seems to be the norm for asymmetrical dashcam designs. Nov 7, 04:39
  • Peter Scargill Teckin SP23 Smart Socket + Tuya-Convert by Peter Scargill: Teckin S23 works just fine - but the power monitoring does not (now) - the company said today they have binned that feature. Nov 6, 22:44
  • Peter Scargill Amazfit Stratos Smartwatch by Peter Scargill: Any - how are you coming on with the Amazfaces App.. I cannot get it to work. Hundreds of faces and I can;t get to them - somethin about the watch needs a driver update. The normal faces work just fine but are not as interesting imho. Nov 6, 22:42
  • Peter Scargill WiFi GPS Dual Lens Car DVR Camera by Peter Scargill: This unit is wide angle - the idea being it does front and back. Nov 6, 22:37
  • Peter Scargill Solar Wireless Car TPMS Monitor by Peter Scargill: Excellent !!! Nov 6, 22:35
  • Peter Scargill November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by Peter Scargill: Antonio let me know your results tomorrow. The board I've put on monitoring seems to be failure (just by the act of monitoring) but not long enough test... couple of hours. Nov 6, 22:27
  • Peter Scargill November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by Peter Scargill: The move to Tasmota 7.0.0.3 did not fix anything. Nov 6, 22:25
  • Peter Scargill November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by Peter Scargill: Could you possibly repeat that in an issue in Tasmota forums, feel free to say I am not discounting this idea as I don't have a better one. Antonio it would seem changed access points - but is it because he changed access points or because the new access point is a stronger signal which would re-inforce your idea and STILL points back to Tasmota. I definitely do not have this issue with earlier Tasmotas, or ESP-GO. I should also point out that the errors are all inmy office several feet from the access point in here. In the house there are other access points with other names Nov 6, 22:24
  • Teckin SP23 Smart Socket + Tuya-Convert by Thomas: I should have said I used tuya-convert first... On three Pi with two raspbian builds. That achieves nothing. It starts but the plug immediately stops flashing the light when first contacted, and the script fails. One message I saw in the logs with the second plug in TuyOTA the box was: WARNING: it appears this device does not use an ESP82xx and therefore cannot install ESP based firmware I have given up now, and solved most of my issues using webhooks and ifttt because my WeMo will respond to IFTTT and Google, just not OpenHab.

  • Amazfit Stratos Smartwatch by Andy: I've had one of these for over a year and it's great. It's my main watch and also use it to track walks and bike rides. If you enable auto-airplane mode overnight i.e. switch bluetooth off, then you can extend the battery runtime. Nov 6, 19:17
  • DrFragle and MrShark November Quickie – Stress – TDM and ESP-GO by DrFragle and MrShark: 6 hours and not a single flicker/restart... Nov 6, 17:56
  • FY6800 Signal Generator by Nick Carter: I agree that the instrument is fantastic. I have the PC program loaded and can generate and save the constructed waveforms. Unfortunately though, I have tried everything I can think of, but I seem to be too dumb to figure out how to load the waveform I generated into the FY6900 and have it generate the waveform. So any help that anyone can give would be wonderful. Puleeeese? Thanks Nick Carter Nov 6, 16:51
  • Brian Gowland WiFi GPS Dual Lens Car DVR Camera by Brian Gowland: I have a unit which attaches to my rear view mirror and has a front facing camera. There's a separate camara which attaches to the ceiling at the back of my car and connects to the main unit. One DVR, two cameras. Nov 6, 16:49
  • Brian Gowland WiFi GPS Dual Lens Car DVR Camera by Brian Gowland: Designed primarily for LHD cars. For RHD the display would be on the right and cameras on the left of the unit. Nov 6, 16:23
