Re: Homebrew 2600 pcb help

I think Gannon made one years back.
*searches*
Yeah, he did make a prototype pcb, but I don't know if it went anywhere. You could PM him, I think he still comes around every so often.

Re: n64 portable question topic

He's saying that because a 7808 is a low-dropout linear regulator, the input voltage needs to be at least 1.5V to 2V above the output voltage.

The psone screen quits out at around 7V, I'm not sure exactly where, but I don't know if it can run on 7V.

Re: Removing xbox 360 parts

The $10 Radioshack desoldering iron with the attached pump can work quite well, once you get the hang of it. It's 45W, which should help with melting the lead-free solder. It worked for me, for the most part, and has really worked for Ben (Heck), who has made quite a few laptops. It's cheap, at leas...

Re: Case construction question

Bondo is a filler, and not for structural fixes.

Use something like epoxy. Like JB Weld.

Re: I'm having fan problems! No, I'm not a celebrity.

For most fans, if you undervolt them, they will still run, just slower RPM.

Is your battery pack fully charged? It should be about 12.6V fully charged (if it's lithium), which could be bad for the fan. Maybe that's the issue.

Re: Cart emulator progress thread

Also, is there a confirmed SD/microSD slot? I know the board looked like it had one, but I want it to be confirmed.

Specifically these batteries.

I could also use a 7.4V PCB and a 7.4v 1.2A smart charger, but not required.

Re: Cart emulator progress thread

It says that the ever drive requires a CIC chip from a cart. Can someone tell me what a CIC chip is? N64 lockout/security chips contained in each cart. Boot chips. The N64's lockout scheme employs quite a few different boot chips (called CICs) that reside in the game cartridge, and unless the CIC p...

Not really. I'm not sure if the Onlive system has HDCP, which could make things a pain. I know the HDFury will decipher the signal, but that's a bit expensive.

Re: Onlive portable system

A PSOne screen is waaay too low resolution for what you're looking to do.

Something like this would be much better, as it's 640x480, rather than the PSOne which is 320x240.

It doesn't have HDMI though, but it has VGA, and it probably would be easier to get HDMI into than the PSOne.

Re: If the screen requires a different voltage to the system...

If the screen uses the old-style CCFL backlights, then it may not run on much less voltage, as those backlights tend to require high voltage.

However, if it's LED backlit, then it should be regulated somewhere, which you might have to replace/bypass.

Re: PS2 RGB issue

Are you taking the signal from the AV port or from the capacitors? When I last looked at the mod, you pulled the signals from the capacitors so you would miss all of the junk that gives it a green tint.

You could also try a resistor/potentiometer to weaken the green signal.
