This was it. Where I'm using it I don't have easy access to the port. This was more convenient. I was also wondering about the disconnect, connect, disconnect deal. So what the hell, for 20 minutes of soldering I might save myself some pain in the future.
But mostly just a bit of extra convenience.
Also to answer /u/Quorong I always do the sudo shutdown -h now thing. I did have an SD corruption problem at some point, not fun. Not fun.
I use this thing to run my desktop CNC using this really neat software called chiliiPeppr so I don't have my main computer where there is a lot of dust.
To shut down at the end of the day I either ssh through the terminal on my mac or use raspiCheck (on android). You can pre-set commands on raspiCheck so shutting down is just a couple of taps away on the phone.
I don't know about keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys but I have the added following custom commands to the Raspi Check app on my phone.
To turn OFF the display - vcgencmd display_power 0.
vcgencmd display_power 0
To turn ON the display - vcgencmd display_power 1.
vcgencmd display_power 1
As they are console commands, it may be possible to create a keyboard shortcut.
If these commands don't work, there are alternatives at: https://www.screenly.io/blog/2017/07/02/how-to-automatically-turn-off-and-on-your-monitor-from-your-raspberry-pi/
Hi, I have a Rpi3 file/torrent/mail server too and use <strong>RasPi Check</strong>
android app to monitor it. It uses a SSH connection, extremely comfortable, and among the other features,includes a top panel to monitor running processes.
I'd suggest making use of netstat too a lot, in order to monitor who connects too which port
In the Emulationstation Quit menu, there is an option to shutdown system.
If your system has frozen or your controller is unresponsive, then you should SSH into your Pi and run either sudo reboot or sudo shutdown -h now. You can also use an app on your smartphone such as RasPi Check if you use Android.
sudo shutdown -h now
To restore your artwork and configs, connect to your Pi via Samba shares and you can copy all the folders you see to your PC. More info at: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/First-Installation/#samba-shares
>From Emulation station, bring up the menus and there should be an option to Quit/Shutdown the system.
This. And on the very rare occasions I'm unable to get back to the RetroPie UI to shutdown, I use this app on my phone.
another approach to consider, is shell scripts that rename the config files for each scenario. say you have configs set up for your main 1080p tv at home:
make different sets of those for each scenario like:
then it's just a matter of renaming them via script & rebooting. if you have an android phone and happen to connect to a display with no signal you can connect to the pi using an ad-hoc wireless connection then use an app such as RasPi Check to execute the scripts
What's your environment like, recently warmer than before? Are the Pis overheating and thermal throttling?
If you don't have any heat sinks or run the Pi in an enclosed space, it can raise the temperature enough that the Pi will reduce it's operating frequency, which could cause a lag in the video processing. Use a tool like RasPi Check to monitor the Pi for frequency dips and heat issues.
Just give your pi a static ip and ssh into it. Copy commands to raspi check on your android and you're golden. No need for node bulk.
US app link for the lazy...
I did some quick research, and here are the Android Apps that one may use to send custom commands via SSH to the Raspberry Pi, this is of course enables much more functionality than just powering off your Raspberry Pi:
