Up until this point, I have been able to find the answers to all my questions either here or elsewhere on the interwebs, but I now that I have my pi in a case, I am having power issues. I am using a neutrik usb passthrough to provide power to my pi, and if I connect the usb to the power block directly, no problem. But if I use the passthrough, the screen blanks out, sometimes for a second or two, sometimes for good. I’m at a loss how to fix this. Are these connectors not able to pass through stable voltage? Am I missing some crucial step?
After more research I have become familiar with the raspi’s power requirements and shortcomings and will be changing my build to receive power from a certified powered usb hub, and use the passthrough for connection of a second controller.
