would be cool !, could go in the reference section as reviews on anything mildly portablising related might be usefull to someone someday. A database of reviews of parts would be great, if they are ebay items a generic name and picture should be included though. Would be FANTASTIC to have a small da...

Re: using digital input, not analog?

did some a googlin on the techwell tw8817 chip, looks as if it is the display driver chip, the data sheet says it can accept s-video, which the beagle board natively supports, so theres a little improvement in quality. Another thing it says in the data sheet is that this chip has 2 wire serial proba...

Re: using digital input, not analog?

You will not be able to put vga in that screen without a convertor, your stuck with composite or you will have to buy a very expensive and big vga to composite converter (can the beagle board even output vga? Also vga isn't digital just so you know) Try it on compsite , if things are readable and it...

Re: 1/8 watt resistors for 2xnes to snes controller mod

Mind you im not sure using them as igniters is the best experience to draw on, any ways than...

Re: What to do with a 10 year old pc (dell t500)

could set it up as a server, there a fun project and often very usefull. Also you probably want to install linux or bsd on it as windows 2000/95/98/ME is an experience no man deserves and xp wont run well.
