Re: Cheap NOACs for like $20!

http://www.team-mediaportal.com That is what I use on my home theater pc. Once you get the hang of it, it runs circles around Vista Media Center in my opinion. It too has it's limitations, such as a current free TV Guide. The skins are awesome, and the fact that it is open source and you run it in ...

Man, I'm seeing that this isn't as easy as I first thought. Most people are using microcontrollers to do this. I had another project I wanted to work on a long time ago that used microcontrollers, but I never followed through with it.

I want to modify an AV switch to use IR

I'm wondering if any of you have any experience with this. I've searched the forums, and really couldn't find anyone doing anything with IR receivers. I have an automatic AV switch, it has 4 inputs, and 1 output. It is supposed to automatically tell which device is turned on, and switch to that devi...

I just wanted to follow up with what I did. The Onkyo has an option to Bi-Amp the front speakers. It does this by using the amp for the two back 7.1 speakers (i'm only using 5.1 for now) as a subwoofer out, and the front speakers amp for high end frequencies. I connected the subwoofer to the right s...

Thanks man, I haven't been breaking too many game consoles lately. Two kids make things a bit busy around the house now. I'll search the News forum for amps, this forum didn't turn anything up.

Build my own subwoofer amp or buy one?

Hey guys, I have a question for ya'. My old Panasonic head unit (surround sound for home theatre) kicked the bucket. I may be getting an new Onkyo receiver pretty soon, and I'm wondering what I should do about the sub. The Panasonic had an amp for the Sub, the Onkyos have pre outs for a powerered su...

Anyone ever use a 40 Pin Male IDE cable?

I'm looking for a 40 pin Male IDE cable. I would prefer male adapters or both sides, but a male on one side and female on the other would have to work if it has too. I've been searching google, but the sites in the US seem to elude me at the moment. I've seen a few in other countries, but the shippi...

I've always called my small cabinet a Bartop cabinet. That is what I've usually seen the small ones called. I have a 17" monitor, 8 way stick, 8 player buttons and select and start buttons. Not enough room on it for another joystick with a 17" wide control panel. My brother and I are in the process ...

Do we have an IRC channel?

I was just wondering. It seemed like it would be pretty cool to be able to chat with you people sometimes. I know you would get people coming in all the time asking for help, but that wouldn't be so bad would it?

Is this what you need sir?

That is a SCSI-1/SCSI-2. If you are just wanting to cut it to solder to the N64 cart slot then that cable should work just fine.

Could you get one of those homebrew kits and run some MP3's off of it? You don't need a modchip in your DS to get one of those to work, but the kits are kind of expensive and your MP3 player surely has a lot more memory than one of those little Flash Carts that you use for the homebrew software.
