    Which leads me to my next stupid question, how do I modify config.yaml? The Pi starts the Robo App automatically so not sure how to get to a text editor . . . . .

    SSH, learn about it! If you are on the Windows platform you can use Putty or Bitvise SSH.
    The config.yaml is located in /home/pi/.octoprint/

    On Windows WinSCP allows you to get a file browser through the same ssh connection and lets you download/upload/edit files in a more "Windows-like" graphical way.

    Another good thing about the rpi is that everything is an SD card so you can also shut down octoprint and mount the file system on another machine

    Did they change the std root password? I am not at home or I would check.

    A few points:
    1. The standard password is still in place, Username = pi & Password = raspberry
    2. If you pull the SD card and mount it on Windows you only have access to the /boot partition, everything is not accessible.
    3. BitViseSSH works better than WinSCP is your primary requirement is SSH as opposed to SFTP. BitVise and WinSCP do both.
    4. If all you care about is SSH then Putty is lean and mean
    A suggestion here, although you might feel more comfortable downloading a file from the Pi to your PC to edit it there, unless you are familiar with the differences in file formats between TEXT files created in Windows and those created on a Linux system, you will be better served learning a bit of Linux and trying to do everything you can within an SSH session.

    The nice thing is there are Linux containers and bash that run on Windows, like Ubuntu and now suse

    Yes true but without installing some additional drivers a default Windows install does not allow mounting of EXT4 partitions natively. Plus sometimes you want to see the result of what you are doing right away, You can't do that if you remove the µSD card to mount it in Windows. I can also continue to print something while I edit files on the rPi in most cases if I do it in an SSH session.

    Scratch that . . . used Bitvise instead and I see the folder there now, as well as a terminal window. Didn't see those with WinSCP

    It is there, in raspian it won't show you .directories by default. Just type from the pi folder cd .oct and hit tab and it should load it for you

    Latest version of OctoPrint (1.3.4) detects and starts the camera automatically so you don't have to click the "Start Video Stream" item from the System drop down menu. My R2 currently has 1.3.2 . . . . would like this new feature for the R2, so hopefully when the Robo team gets to it, we'll have it in the next update.

    You can upgrade OctoPrint on your own without waiting on Robo.

    It says updates are disabled, and I worry if I over-ride that, I'll get myself into a mess. Not the sharpest knife in the pool here.
