www.max2play.com


max2play has WPS built in , which works a treat. Just access the web ui to disable all the unneeded functions.

SD move didn't work :( And now it won't boot in the Pi3 either  :giggle:

Going to setup from scratch - going to be fun as it'll be headless onto the Pi Z
I must say that is strange as I did a straight swap between a Pi2B and PiZ but not the PiZw though so I don't know if that would have influenced it. It also even stranger that the Pi3 will not boot now (if the only thing you did was to try and boot up the Zero which must be the case as you say it didn't work.) The boot process does not change the image. Maybe your MicroSD card is a bit wonky.

I think it might have had something to do with the wifi connection - you could see the activity LED on the Zero working - and on the Pi3 afterwards - but it didn't register on the network (static IP).  I also read somewhere that with older versions of rasbian the swop might not, just didn't realise I wouldn't be able to swap back.

Not a hassle though - got to brush up my linux skills again doing a headless install without a network connection initially.

Bumping to see if there is any interest in another run of boards...

Not sure what the minimum quantity is to make it worthwhile for tangmonster, but will go with 10 units until he can chip in.

If you would like a board add your name to the list. Location might help if we want to combine shipping

This is an absolutely brilliant solution if you want to install an irrigation computer. Very well made and worth every penny!!

That is the plan. Apart Rand dollar going south when doing component purchases I don't see a price increase being needed.
