@blebbens If your running the MM2 witohout any twoway mirror in front of the display maybe you could get away with an e-ink display.
But the e-ink is not near bright enough to be viable behind a twoway mirror.
There is low energy (energy star rated) screens out there, power is directly related to size (obviously), like there is the 24" LG
24MK600M rated use is 14.1W (eco mode). So you could probably get a smaller screen that uses less.
@yraheja77 PI4 1Gig is same as PI3b+ only faster… everything else is an add on. if u can afford more memory, get it
my updated (in test) installer will help you get set up, see here for instructions
V 2.9 is the latest
Was planning out a build for my first magic mirror when it occurred to me that an echo show could make a great base to start off with, especially for someone doing their first build with no experience working on a pi. Hell, if these things had a bigger display it would be perfect. https://sarkariresult.onl/ https://pnrstatus.vip/
My question is if anyone has done or tried this before? If so any advice or tips?
I found a tear down video on ifixit and it looks like the hardest part is just finding all the screws to get the case open. From there just pull guts out, reinstall in frame, and boom magic Alexa mirror. Sounds simple right?
@Oxholm said in 24 inch monitor?:
So, it’s 2019 and displays have come a long way and I’ve been looking at a lot of posts lately about monitors used.
My hope is to create a MM of my own and I prefer about 24 or so for display (without my wallet being empty afterwards).
What do I need to look for? IPS, VA?
If you have any specific suggestions for a somewhat budget monitor that will do the job I’d be a happy man
Damm even I am having a similar kind of issue, I have searched all over the internet and even have posted on number of threads on different forum, no solution seems to work. I am really frustrated, can anyone of you here help me resolve this issue, I am very much tired now.
@cyberphox said in 43” tv with 55” IR touch frame:
I saw this when googling. Will this help?
I’m seeking the thinnest, lightest weight displays that preferably have little to no indentations. (Many screens have a backside buldge or something that doesn’t let them be perfectly flat rectangles.)
I don’t have any L x W specifications yet, just looking for the best screen possible for a smart mirror project before limiting to a specific frame size.
HDMI input is a must (because I have no idea how else to show content on a screen from a raspberry pi.)
@Sean said in How do I get the Google AIY Voice HAT installed so that MMM can use it?:
There could be one problem. Your mic and speaker now have same id card 0, device 0 When my module try to close the mic(plughw:0,0) to output sound, the speaker(plughw:0,0) will be closed together at same time, so error will occur.
I heard there is a way to assign different id or alias to devices, but don’t know how to do.
Ok, so it doesn’t use the subdevices to distinguish them, I guess it’s google here I come
Hi…unless the PSUs are designed to tolerate it, a voltage mismatch (even within the +/- 0.25V tolerance) could destroy one or both PSUs.
Just get a decent PSU with adequate output, like the “official” 2.5A, or bigger if required for power-hungry peripherals .
printed circuit board
ust wondering if anyone out there is using an IR Touch Frame?
How do you have it calibrated if you have the screen rotated?

I have a Pi 3 in a plastic housing and with a fan, running at 46,5 degrees celsius
And I have one in an all aluminum housing without a fan, running at 38,5 degrees celsius.
It can be the location that makes a difference, but I would say the housing makes the biggest difference.
Very pleased with the all aluminum.
The title says it. I have 2 Raspberry Pi 3’s and 2 32" flat screen TVs. I need to find someone who will get the frames and 2 way Plexi or glass. I haven’t done my due diligence on which is a better material for a smart mirror. But I will provide you with the Raspberry Pi and tv if you provide me a frame and 2 way. I figure it’s less hassle than selling the extra items and then sourcing what I need. I will provide pictures and tracking I will also expect that in return. Hopefully we can help each other out and each have everything to build this nifty gadget. https://redtube.onl/
