Update: NanoPC T4 is a pretty good platform. The graphics aren’t quite what I had hoped. MMM-Globe (the pretty abstract one) isn’t very smooth. I did find that if the screen is in landscape mode it performs better than portrait mode. But even landscape isn’t smooth enough for my tastes. Next round of testing will be with MMM-AssistantMk2 and MMM-Hotword.
Oh, and the thing is hot to the touch. It comes with a heatsink and it’s painfully hot after a couple minutes.
I had similar issues, but with a DVI input on a monitor.
For me at least the rainbow screen was showing sometimes, but often also not.
After tons of different settings in config.txt (which didn’t solve the issue) and different hdmi-dvi cables, I ended up reinstalling Raspbian. After that I got the screen working again.
The only thing is that there is no red color on my monitor. Tried different power supplies, cables and certain settings in config.txt, none of them fixed my red color missing issue.
But that is another story…
Give it a shut to reinstall. Don’ t forget to save data as reinstall is wiping the sd card.
@sdetweil said in Memory effect with MM2:
@toucherts every 6 hours it toggles the class used to present the screen.
I just made a little module package on github
The official Raspberry Pi touchscreen activates a screensaver without documented settings. The screen wakes up when touched. Generally, I would like to keep it that way but I also want to be able to wake up the screen programmatically. If possible, I would also like to tweak the activation time.
I know how to turn the backlight on and off and how to dim the screen but does anyone know how to manage this screensaver?
Yes I did search before posting.
These IR overlays are designed to work with Samsungs proprietary smart mirror system hence the question as to whether it would be compatible.
The question was whether anyone had success implementing magic mirror with these rather than overlays in general
@lorcalhost Are you interested in buying a smart mirror hardware kit? Customize the frame size you need And install the mirror control panel and so on. You just need to install the Raspberry Pi by yourself.
I was throwing around a few ideas in my head while applying privacy mirrored film to a few windows in my condo and had the realization that potentially the need for glass in a smart mirror could be circumvented entirely by applying the film directly to the monitor?
I realize you’d have to apply the film in the opposite way it was intended, with the clear peel-off film facing outward and essentially only apply the film using the suction created by squeegeeing the water out but does anyone have any knowledge of whether this method works?
For my purposes I don’t need a flawless mirror but am concerned that perhaps the static generated by the LCD screen may have an affect on the longevity of the film staying on the screen. Thanks for any help.
Hi I’m trying to build a magic mirror that would have touch capabilities, and I have seen some ir frames with multi touch only support multi touch on windows or mac and woundn’t work with a raspberry pi. I was thinking of getting this frame https://www.peauproductions.com/collections/pq-labs-g5-integration-kit-touch-frames/products/z-pq-g5-2k-ig-32
But I don’t know if it would work.
Has anyone had a multi touch frame that worked?
That guide is a little old. Yes, it will still work as described. However, I’ve left Windows behind where MagicMirror is concerned. If I were writing that guide today I would be urging the use of ubuntu. Continue what you are doing, by all means. If all else fails, consider trying ubuntu.
