TinyTV & Tiny Video Player / Re: Bundled Videos for TinyTV?

Some of the files, the Japanese videos, came from the creator of the first TinyTV that used our hardware, Yashusi Enari. You can read more about him under the 'Evolution of the TinyTV' in the Kickstarter description here:
That section is around 80% of the way down the page.

The rest of the videos (godzilla, bunny animation, Apollo, the blimp clip) are all public domain videos. I'm not sure that we have the original copies, but you should be able to find these video sources with an internet search.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I was able to get that example working fine on my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B V1.2.

Can you provide the following?
  • Board name

Are you able to connect the working Thumby to the Code IDE? Getting things operational with the working Thumby will help in duplicating it on the one appearing to have issues. This should help you determine how to connect and which cable to use. Also, please make sure you are using a chromium browser with the Code Editor.

Does the charging LED turn on when you plug both Thumbys in? There's a yellow LED by the charging port that will turn on when the battery is charging.

Let me know if that helps!

Yes, I can see these in the memory card which came with the TinyTv. I was looking for the original full-sized videos, hopefully with some background information; I'd like to know where they came from.

TinyTV & Tiny Video Player / Re: Is my TinyScreen+ toast?
« Last post by lennevia on February 27, 2023, 10:51:59 AM »
Hmm, if those lines aren't just an effect from taking a picture of the OLED, it could have been damaged during re-assembly. The glass screen can be cracked without visible sigs of wear or tear necessarily and that can lead to a distorted display like you are perhaps seeing.

Usually when a screen is cracked or damaged, it'll have a distorted/erring display for a while and then eventually go blank. The hardware on the board will still work, however, and you can use the board as a processor and button board even if the screen is failing. It may be worth a shot to try re-uploading the TV program just in case something initialized incorrectly.

Let me know how it goes!

Can you provide YouTube links or similar for the videos which come bundled with the TinyTV?

After using my TinyScreen+ for something else, then putting it back in the TinyTV case, video has these horizontal lines. Is the screen toast now?

Wirelings / wireling Pi HAT config error
« Last post by Leeyt4541 on February 24, 2023, 05:20:18 PM »
Hi all,

I'm using the Raspberry Pi to test the accelerometer and Pi HAT and I met a problem while following the tutorial provided by Tinycircuits. After installing all the packages mentioned in the tutorial, I run an example code and I got an error that said '"Adafruit-PlatformDetect version 3.40.3 was unable to identify the board and/or microcontroller running the Linux platform. Please be sure you have the latest packages running:'pip3 install --upgrade adafruit-blinka adafruit-platformdetect'". I run the command and it said the requirement was already satisfied. Could anyone please help me fix this error so that I can keep using the HAT and next the accelerometer? Thanks.
