MSATA SSD SHOULD BE INSTALLED BEFORE FITTING THE RASPBERRY PI.

  • 2) Connect the power & IR cable from Raspberry Pi to the 2-pin male pin header
  • 3) Plugs the HDMI daughter board into the 14-pin HDMI female pin header
  • 4) Connect the cable of USB daughter board to the 3-pin PH connector
  • 5) Screwing the Raspberry Pi board

B. POWER ON / OFF

TO TURN ON

  • 1) HDMI cable and power adapter should be connected before powering on.
  • 2) Touch the power symbol and hold until the colorful breathing light is ON.

TO SHUTDOWN

  • 1) Power off your system using the system menu - IMPORTANT!
  • 2) Touch the power symbol and hold until the colorful breathing light is OFF.
  • 3) It is recommended to unplug the power supply unit when you are not using it.
 	C1. OPERATING SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - OSMC	  	 	 
 	C2. OPERATING SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - VOLUMIO	 
 	C3. OPERATING SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - RASPBIAN JESSIE	 
  • Based on RASPBIAN JESSIE
Version: March 2016
Release date: 2016-03-18
Kernel version: 4.1
HDMI setting
  • <1> To ensure that the necessary kernel modules are loaded at boot

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /boot/config.txt

  • <2> Uncomment following three lines in config.txt by removing '#' located at start of the line. (check Images below)
Vga1.png


hdmi_force_hotplug=1      pretends that HDMI device is always attached
hdmi_group                            specifies whether monitor is DMT type (Computers) or CEA type (TV)
hdmi_mode                            specifies the resolution of monitor.
  • <3> For hdmi_group value selection : If you’re using output as Computer monitor then replace value ’1′ with ’2′, so the new config will be like :
 
hdmi_group=2

(Select value 1 for TV, Select value 2 for monitor)

  • <4> For hdmi_mode value selection : Now open eLinux RPi config scroll down, there in hdmi_mode two tables are given, select the correct resolution as per your monitor.

(Table1 if you’re using TV & Table2 if you’re using Monitor)
Since my monitor’s resolution is 1440×900 px, hdmi_mode=47 fits me the best. So, the modified config.txt will be like.

hdmi_mode=47

Overall my uncommented lines will look something like :

  • <6> Save your changes by pressing Ctrl-x then Y
  • <7> Reboot your Raspberry Pi

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo reboot

  • <8> Mouse right click the speaker icon and select audio output of HDMI
X600 setting 1.png


  • Testing the IR receiver
  • <9> Installing LIRC

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get install lirc

  • <10> Add the two lines below to /etc/modules . This will start the modules up on boot. Pin 8 bellow will be used to take the output from the IR sensor.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /etc/modules

     
lirc_dev
lirc_rpi gpio_in_pin=2
Ir 0 - x3000 (1).png


  • <11> Save your changes by pressing Ctrl-x then Y
  • <12> If you are using 3.18.x RaspberryPi firmware you must modify one additional file for the lirc-rpi kernel extension to be loaded:

Edit your /boot/config.txt file
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /boot/config.txt
and add:
dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_in_pin=2

Ir 0 - x3000 (2).png


  • <13> Edit /etc/lirc/hardware.conf and have it appear exactly as shown below.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf 
# 
# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd 
LIRCD_ARGS="--uinput" 
# Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file 
# START_LIRCMD=false 
# Don't start irexec, even if a good config file seems to exist. 
# START_IREXEC=false 
# Try to load appropriate kernel modules 
LOAD_MODULES=true 
# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers. 
DRIVER="default" 
# usually /dev/lirc0 is the correct setting for systems using udev 
DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"
MODULES="lirc_rpi" 
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any 
LIRCD_CONF="" 
LIRCMD_CONF=""

  • The highlighted text are the parts that will need changing, though it’s worth checking the rest of the text incase you have a different initial configuration.
  • <14> Save your changes by pressing Ctrl-x then Y
  • <15> Reboot the Raspberry Pi

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo reboot

  • <16> Run these two commands to stop lircd and start outputting raw data from the IR receiver:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo /etc/init.d/lirc stop
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ mode2 -d /dev/lirc0

  • <17> Point a remote control at your IR receiver and press some buttons. You should see something like this:
