I just used my mobile phone charger and its been working fine for weeks, but then I don't own an iPhone with its crazy connector just a standard usb micro charger that all my phones usually use

... or buy a micro usb connector to apple 30 pin and get the best of both worlds :)

Does anyone have a part number for the correct power supply that works with the B revision?

No part number. You just need any micro USB charger that supplies 700ma-1200ma of power.

No idea sorry but I plugged mine into the routers usb port and it's been fine if that helps.

Umm...the documentation that comes with the Pi says specifically to NOT do this.

I did find this though: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#Power_adapters

It turns out that my old cell phone charger and my Touchpad chargers will work. SCORE!

Gah!!!!!!!!!! The power supplies that I ordered aren't even close to being correct. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Ouch! Tough luck!

Part number? Sure: HNP06-MicroUSB

No idea sorry but I plugged mine into the routers usb port and it's been fine if that helps.

No no, not good! Stop it!

Lol... or just connect a regular micro USB to USB cable to the iPhone charger wall adapter? :p

Hallelujah... Another one who read the documentation! :p

Got bored waiting, too? Wanted to kill some over-excitement and calm yourself by reading all you can beforehand, too? :laugh:

Uh huh, that's the case for pretty much most smartphone chargers, provided they have the same port/you have an adapter.

No wonder the touchpad charger will work. :)

Well I tested out the new Raspian last night, the new hardfp is going to make life a lot easier for devs and the performance was 10 times better than previously. Good work PiPeople!

How have you guys found this guy for 1080p playback?

I'm really enjoying my XBox as a media center except that it won't handle mkv or DTS down-mixing :(

I'm just wondering how you guys have found it before I go and buy one >.<

Watched Advent Children Complete in 1080p with DTS audio the other day on it using Raspbmc and it worked amazing! However, with the new build supporting hardfp we should see a 35% improvement in h.264 related stuffs.

You shouldn't Power the Raspberry Pi from a Router.

I've been powering the RPi from my TV and it's very unstable compared with mains power.

Afaik there shouldn't be any difference, h.264 is offloaded to the GPU so hard or soft float wouldn't matter?

I've found that rubbish. I can power mine from my PC (if it can charge an ipod or ipad that you've got at least 5V~1Amp output) and a 0.5A dictaphone device, both power it FINE, even running slightly overclocked, no stability issues.

I guess they know what they're talking about, I've got a MicroUSB Nokia charger 5v 1200mA just sitting doing nothing because I use the PC to charge my phone so it will be put to good use

But the router USB was my original idea too

Slightly faster h.264 encode...

If I'm honest, I've been on the gentoo hard-float since I got it, and it's just darn slow. It might be an improvement over a soft-float, but don't have high expectations of it.

Well, Raspbian over Debian is a massive performance improvement. Either way 1080p video is pretty darn stable at the moment.
