re: I just got a Raspberry Pi 3. What can I do with it? VIEW POST


I have two. One's a TV box with LibreElec and the other runs pi-hole, an adblocking DNS service.


Whoa! Thanks for the pi-hole, I have one raspberry pi sitting unused :)


I use it as DNS add-block (pi-hole) and a Plex server. My pi-hole is stopping working from time to time..


I had a similar problem and discovered that the network card on the pi was going to sleep to save power. Since I ssh into my pi, that was hard to figure out, but adding a cron task to ping the router fixed it.

How often did you have to ping and/or where did you find the sleep timeout value?


That's next when its project box accumulates all the parts. I think I'm almost there!


Does the plex server works properly?
I installed it on the RaspberryPi but unfortunately, I never managed to watch a full movie in good conditions.
The Pi wasn't powerful enough to display the media (video file).


Up-vote for pi-hole, best raspberry pi use case ever.


Thanks for the suggestion! pi-hole seems interesting 😮
