    I have a couple a received from element 14. $35.

    Only been playing with them a bit, but I have noticed they will not 100% play images made for the older versions :-(

    So I suspect, FPP will require an update.

    Well now that you all got me thinking about it I tracked mine only to find out it was delivered 10 days ago. I asked my wife and sure enough she put it in my workshop and forgot to mention it!

    So something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-D...25.m3641.l6393

    I have used several of the converters linked in the first link. They work great. I like that they are fully enclosed.

  5. Thanks MrSmoofy thanked for this post

    Pretty much. That's what I did with mine and it works fine running from my e682. I used the end of an old phone charger.

    You can also power the Pi by inputting power on the GPIO power pins.
    Or by backfeeding the USB ports. Who doesn't have a box of extra usb cables they can cut in half to do that?
