#4091052 A Newbies Journey with the TIPI

Posted by --- Ω --- on Yesterday, 8:23 PM

Okay, I'm sort of back into newbie waters again with the new P-Box version of TIPI with an issue I'm having, but when I mentioned something I missed (after removing the HDX), M@ graciously cued me in on something I should have known and should have thought of... but didn't...


You can still share files with Classic 99 and Real Iron with TIPI's shared network directory.




Thanks again M@!

This is freaking annoying to see the same commercial cross posted in multiple threads. We are hobbists not customers here as your target audience. I dislike seeing Atariage abused like this.

I'll personally never buy anything linked from these messages, in fact I'll go out of my way to purchase a like item elsewhere.

Nice price. It cost me $40.00 to get my copy printed up and bound a few years back.

#4090371 What is next... it's gotta be something... right?

 X-10  /  99 Home Sentry interface?



Yes.  Good ideas, but another thing that could be cool is to use the TIPI's already built-in WiFi capabilities with new WiFi devices, even some light bulbs now come WiFi capable.  Using a TI-side control program would be awesome.  I suspect someone like Vorticon has already thought of that though.

Okay, it's like this, I'm always looking at what is next, but this time I'm out of ideas.  The TIPI's RPi has four USB ports, we can use one for a mouse... excellent.  But what to do with the other three?


Any ideas guys?

rather than pipe the light just run a led



You first!  :grin:

Let me know how it works out...  I'm a little leery about cutting into and pulling current off a shared data lead with the RPI, even if it's in a parallel arrangement.

Attached are the screen shots of what is happening....


As you can see I do NOT have DSK1. mapped in the TIPI so I can use my Lotharek HxC as DSK1.  

Even so I'm unable to COPY anything, even though I can directory it.

Oh yeah, even inside that metal box, the wireless mouse and Wifi work perfectly!

Wow, it's been a year and a half since I got my 5200.  I guess an "update" is in order....


So far...


1) Obtained a few more cartridges including an Atarimax

2) Got a switchbox

3) Got my joystick rebuilt

4) Got a joystick coupler


Still on the "to do" list...


1) Get a second rebuilt joystick

2) Install a UAV video upgrade and attach a HDMI converter

I went to my local hardware store a few minutes ago and they did not have any M2's in either vinyl or stainless.  I ended up buying some slightly larger vinyl ones with the hope they will fit, and IF POSSIBLE might enlarge the holes a tad with the Dremel, if not possible, I'll have to wait a week or so until I have another day off.  


Both the RPi & TIPI are supposed to arrive tomorrow while I'm at work.

We all on occasion get off topic and some, like me can get a little single minded in our enthusiasm. I guess we all just need to be mindful that we don't drag things off topic when it's not appropriate.

I'm sorry, I thought it was kind of funny myself. I understand and appreciate your enthusiasm towards your RXB, but sometimes... frequently it leaks into places not entirely appropriate.

32GB is HUGE by TI standards, but considered inadequate for many contemporary applications.  To this reality, the prices of SD cards in the sizes that we hobbyists need are coming WAY DOWN in price, even Wally World has some decent prices << HERE >>.  So, if you are going to try to get one of the P-Box TIPI's in the next batch, why not get your micro SD card now and be "ready to go" once it arrives.

I'm a little disappointed in a large number of users here.  This game is so damn good and it's been downloaded over 400 times, but the guy for all his hard work has gotten less than 20 likes?  Come on people, click on the LIKE button, after all his hard work, it's the very least you can do!
