For your 2-player idea, you could use a 15-pin plug (either NeoGeo controller style, or VGA style)
9 pins for controller + 2 pins each for video, audio L, audio R = 15 pins

Either that or separate cables for controls & AV

Could be a dead fan... if it's supplying power then the PSU fan should be going.

If you cancel the sale for valid reasons, eg non-paying bidder, eBay refund your "final value" fee... so if he started low, he's only got a small fee for his joke.

I was looking to buy a PIC programmer a while ago, for a project I've currently shelved like all the rest of my projects... I found a pre-built one that connects via USB (I think?), supports a few different chips (including the 628), and cost AU$20-30. But now I can't remember what it was called, an...

I'd replace the RCA cables with RCA jacks... much more portable if you don't have cables hanging off it!

You're talking about using VHS cases... are they going to be stiff enough? All the ones I've seen have been far too flexible for use as a console case (IMHO).

AAA's?
Button/watch batteries?
Camera batteries?

There's some camera batteries that are slightly fatter than AA's, about half the height, and 3V. Not sure what the mA/mAH ratings are like though. And they cost a hell of a lot more.

I don't know about the ATI one, but most remotes are IR not RF, meaning you need line-of-sight to use them.

I think you'll find it's the parallell port the controllers get wired to (and probably the card reader as well)

Sounds interesting... I found this thread that has some links to more info

Apparently has an OLED screen... that would help explain the low power consumption

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe you can use DDR2 RAM in DDR(1) motherboards...

(or the other way round either, for that matter)

Some (NOT all) PS2-USB adapters support dance mats.
Look around on www.lik-sang.com or do some Googling.

Description says "composite video ready"... to me that implies it doesn't need any extra circuitry. The $99 kit includes cable & inverter - I guess if you buy the $40 LCD only, then you need to find your own cable & inverter? Looks like the inverter in the kit is Sampo SE4602XS ($15), which means yo...
