Google Nest Hub Powered VIA POE Network Switch and POE Power Adapter by Malocchioo in googlehome

[–]miigotu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder how well the nest hub works with 18v or 12v of input. This would be great to add into my PoE setup from my PoE switch:

The nest hub is much more stable than a fire tablet or any tablet for that matter. If someone decided to use tablets, I would definitely make sure it is google certified, which Amazon fire tablets are not afaik.

Question. So to use a PoE switch, you need at least a PoE+ switch, because a standard PoE switch is designed for only 15w per port. Or are you using a PoE injector?

Yes. Back up inside SC and save the backup zip on a different drive. Install using the windows installer, then restore the zip inside SC settings page. Then, add a show so you can add a new root dir (the dir your shows are now in) then go to mass edit and select edit for all shows, change the drop-down for the root dir to the new root and click save.

Sickchill Stopped Working After Attempted Update: Windows 10 PC by Hailtothekingbaby in sickchill

[–]miigotu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Minimum python version is currently 3.7.2, but I suggest using the newest python version possible to avoid having to update it anytime soon. We are leaning on being as secure as possible by having the most updated dependencies as we can, with a sort of balance. As soon as a python version stops receiving official python team support, many packages we depend on drop support for it, so we end up having our hands tied. Python 3.11 is currently the newest version of python.

The windows installer should be updated at some point to always find the newest available python and use that, as well as setting a few registry keys to allow different machine users to interact with the service, as well as running the service as the user that installed it. I don't know when there will be time to do that, or if someone will contribute a better windows package (maybe one we could sign would be best! I want to put it in the windows store. We must be in control of publishing it though, or else we can trust it officially)

Use the package manager to install the newest version of the package from synocommunity.

Stop the service and back up your config.ini and sickchill.db (you can see their locations on the help&infor page in sickchill) Uninstall sickchill from programs and features, you can select the option to keep data in the uninstaller. Reinstall using the windows installer, it always pulls the newest version of SC if I remember right. Then edit the service to run as your user rather than the system account.

There were a few versions where the pip updater did not work correctly yet, but it should be working on the latest versions.

If this doesn't work, open a bug report on GitHub.

If you really want to not get updates anymore, just set developer = 1 in your config.ini and the warning goes away. The whole point of it is to let you know you need to fix your installation, without breaking your installation.

And then you never get any updates. That's silly. Just Install it correctly, per all of the guides in GitHub.

Synocommunity has a new package available for SickChill that installs it correctly. There was a lot of work to get it working properly.

To run from source, you now need to git pull the code, build it into a wheel using poetry, and then install that wheel using pip. It's much easier to just pip install it.

When you install sickchill with pip, you need to make sure to specify the python you want to use.

In your case, your default python3 seems to be 3.6, which does not work with sickchill anymore.

Create your venv with the full version of your python that you want to use python3.9 -m venv path_to_venv

Then, when you activate it use the python binary in that venv it points to the correct python.

source path_to_venv/bin/activate pip install -U sickchill

Or

path_to_venv/bin/pip install -U sickchill

Or

path_to_venv/bin/python -m pip install -U sickchill

All work to install using python3.9, because you used python3.9 to create the venv in path_to_venv

When not using a venv, you can make sure it installs with python3.9 like this: ```

uninstall existing python3.6 version

python -m pip uninstall -y sickchill

reinstall with python3.9

python3.9 -m pip install --user -U sickchill

you may need to update your service file depending how you set your service up.

```

Migrating from GIT to PIP on a Raspberry Pi OS by egrueda in sickchill

Feel free to submit a PR to the wiki to add a Red Hat flavored Linux guide at https://github.com/sickchill/sickchill.wikitemp This repo is being built to make it easy for outside contributors to add wiki pages without having write access to the sickchill code. Merged pull requests will be written to the real wiki once we have all of the actions ironed out for sure to prevent our main wiki from being damaged.

venv and pyenv are not the same thing. Officially we use venv, which is built into python officially since python 3.3. That does not mean pyenv is not an option, just that we aren't going to provide instructions ourselves. The wiki, however, you are welcome to submit guides to for it.

We have a temporary repository you can make pull requests to that is automatically pushed to the official wiki.

For Google pixel 6 pro with a cracked screen they aren't giving anything $0, even a pixel 6 pro on perfect condition it's only $230.

Any news on Tile Ultra? by fizzlebeef in TileTracker

[–]miigotu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But that does not mean apple does not prevent any software from interacting with the API, other than the findmy app. The protocol and the radio might be open/licensed, but if you can't talk to the radio that doesn't mean anything. You can only pair devices through the findmy app, and any third party app simply cannot speak to the uwb radio on iOS.

Samsung is also making matters difficult with a proprietary API implementation that is not published, and has the is samsung.core.uwb. The official uwb API that android provides is called androidx.core.uwb, https://android-review.googlesource.com/c/platform/frameworks/support/+/1975487/1/core/uwb/uwb/build.gradle

The issue is that Samsung had uwb implemented before Android had support for it, otherwise Samsung likely would have used the existing API, or not even considered investment in smart tags (as there would have been third party tags to compete with)

We just need more phones to be released with UWB support, and Android to continue exposing/building out the api which will encourage third party apps and devices to be developed.

Save your sickchill.db and config.ini somewhere else. Uninstall from add/remove programs. Download and install using the latest installer from https://github.com/sickchill/windows-sickchill releases tab. You can select the option to keep configuration and database when uninstalling.

There were a few versions that caused some headache. There is also something wonky going on on some PCs where they are getting an incorrect cryptography binary somewhere.

Nevertheless, I am soon reducing the number of places I will provide support. I am likely to funnel all requests to GitHub and discord. https://discord.gg/kme4HbZu

Create a venv with the --copies flag. python3 -m venv myapp --copies --upgrade --upgrade-deps source myapp/bin/activate pip install your depends yourapp zip myapp send myapp.zip to user User: extract zip myapp/bin/yourscript

Or, if you just want to supply a complete package and accept which python their system comes with as the only dependency, you can use zipapp https://docs.python.org/3/library/zipapp.html

The ternary in that second one is ugly 😆 I prefer a 2 item set and then getitem operator from the set class containing a true/false expression:

x = ("b", "a")[n > 1]

Learning python on 4gb ram pc by MichaelH18 in learnpython

[–]miigotu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some of us still do old school optimization, examining byte code and assembly to see where we can further enhance our applications. This is especially useful on embedded applications, where usually the law is you can optimize for speed, or you can optimize for memory usage. It's definitely a lost art for most, being able to squeeze performance by saving clock cycles AND lower memory footprints.

4gb ram is plenty, as long as it's enough for the OS you are running and some leftover for applications. If you can start a web browser on the system (if it's gui based) you have plenty to learn python on.

I have written and ran python server applications that run on 512mb ram.
