Hi, I've just received a PSU through the post (thanks!) for a new build. I was thinking of putting a charging/charged LED on the outside so I can see where its got to when the screen is off. I've got two questions really,

1. Would the LEDs still show charging status whilst the switch was off?
2. If I wired a two-colour LED to the board with a common cathode (joining the connections at the LED), would this destroy the board?

I had a look and couldn't see a similar question on the forum, sorry if its a duplicate and I missed it.

Thanks for the help.

Can't answer that since I don't use Recallbox you'll have to try it yourself and let us know.
Received the Retro PSU and installed yesterday, and it works fine ! Great product 8-) !
I struggled a bit with Retropie (which I don't really know), mostly because I can't connect keyboard or RJ45...
But I managed to configure the Wifi and installed your software trough SSH. The on-screen battery meter and safe shutdown worked straight.

On the Recalbox side, as expected, it doesn't work... Due to the nature of RB, based on Buildroot (not Raspbian), most of the Linux command or functionnalities are not present.
Some captures of my fails, if it can be useful :

I can do more testing if necessary.

The philosophy of Recalbox is to provide a easy-to-use, stable OS for a large audience. So I doubt about their will to add some tools to help people add some exotic functions. The only solution seems to add packages and compile your own version...
Anyway, here're some Linux commands available on Recalbox :

I may have missed something but where do we configure the "mode" button ? The one we should use in button combos to control bluetooth, sound, or wifi, like explained in the OneForAll Github ?

Because the sound is disabled on my system...
Or is it a problem with my audio device ? I'm using an USB audio card.

Hi, I want to buy a license board, but I'm from Chile. make the purchase but they reimbursed me the money, is there any other place where you can buy the board?, thank you
I refunded your money, I don't ship to South America. No way to track it or confirm you received it either and could take months or never arrive. Not worth the hassle for me sorry.

HOTKEY in the keys.cfg is the "Mode" Button.

You can manually adjust the volume in the audio option in the Retropie Menu but looks like it could be the usb sound card not installed properly or the software for it isn't installed properly.

Would this be suitable fro the Pi4 ? Have you tested it?
