    Adding resistor to R44 to power Raspberry Pi from Aux input

    richardbeattie

      Hi all,

       

      I am trying the get the audio output to an external set of speakers soldered to the speaker headers. As according to the manual I have tried to power to card through its Aux input, however this didn't work. After some googling I cam across

       

      Both of these tell of how by default the aux power cannot power the raspberry pi along with the card, however by soldering a resistor to R44 it can be done.

       

      My question is does anyone have any experience with doing this? Wouldn't the resistor need to connect two places, so where else do I solder it to?

       

      Thanks,

      Richard
