Re: [Wanted] Camble's safe shutdown switch.

Yes, it has to be the banggood edition. They are sold out and if anyone has one please let me know. Might not find one. Have you seen this guys site. He's got some nice products.

Here is the adafruit guide to set up reteogame so the gpios are considered keyboard strokes. https://learn.adafruit.com/retro-gaming-with-raspberry-pi/addin...

Re: GBZ teensy lc massacre

Don't use the teensy? Have you considered wiring the controls to the gpio direct. The teensy is not necessary. Also, if you've burnt out 4 something must be going wrong I would double check all wiring.

Re: Powerboost 1000 issues

It will only turn on with a switch if there is no other power source connected besides the usb c connector to it. Pictures? If it is not working when connect to the power strip I as...

Re: Sudden low voltage issues

Seems to be the powerboost isn't enough to power all that. I second the Helder RetroPSU option. I easily powered a pi3b+, 7" HDMI screen, USB Encoder, and a i2s Audio hat.

Re: Alternative to the PCM2704 for audio?

You could get another. You can also drive a speaker and headhpones direct from the PAM Amp you have there using the PWM method. However, PWM audio is not nearly as nice sounding. You could also consider swapping the PCM and PAM out for this i2s amp. It's what I use in most builds now. https://learn....

Re: How to fix the screen from getting cut off?

Kites Circuit sword screen is a great one. I did not have to adjust any overscan on my kite build. did you use a 3d bracket to position your screen? I don't recall mine being cut off at the bottom. Either way, i have seen that issue in the past with the slow splash video, I had never thought that it...
