There are empty resistor slots, should I add them in?
I purchased two of these for my Pi several weeks ago and I haven't tested them yet. I have images showing fully populated resistors and also only two of the eight, like mine. What is the purpose of the resistors and should I solder six more in? The other components, like the missing Led and three button ports also. I can't find a diagram or schematic anywhere as popular ad these boards are.

  • No, you do not need to solder anything on this board. It will work as is.

How would I code simple commands (i.e.
Specifically, I'm looking to see if you have any tutorials on how to map particular commands to each buttonpress. Is there a particular library I should be looking at to figure out whether I could incorporate this into my project?

how to use for mpd/mpc player
Hi! I'd like to build a stereo for my kids with different buttons for different kinds of music. I'm curious if I could use this usb encoder instead of GPIO buttons. How would I code simple commands (i.e. "mpc play" or "mpc load" etc) for each buttonpress with this encoder? Are they assigned GPIO slots?

  • This doesn't plug into the GPIO, it simply plugs into the USB port and acts as a "generic gamepad"

how many can be used
Can you use more than one of these at the same time? I am toying with the idea of building a pinball controller.
Jeff
  • You can use as many as you have free USB ports!
