Just post any hardware you want to see here and we will start discussing it

Suggested so far:
RFID - So far it looks like a No on thi s one, most people wont use it and thier are better ways to implement it
CIR/FIR - its in and alwas has been, should have the extended range that people want for TV
Abient light detector - unkown, there is a posibility but using the camera would be a better option as it has these built in for auto compinsation
Person detector - not feasiable but alternetives exsist

i have no idea what you are refering to, i belive that it has to do with recording free to air, which is legal (at least here in australia it is)

i really dont want to deal with upstarts, however there may be an advantage to diong so, i was hoping to stick with the one manufactutrer (look at the infeon GPS chips)

i would love to chuk that display module in, it would be like a futristic vt102 terminal, green as well smile.gif

with the amount of RF stuff on there i dont want to touch the DVB stuff, however if we do want an DVB chip then i suggest we start by seeing what linux supports that is USB compatible (just get the linux source code) and work from there, at least in a pinch we can unsolder the chip and solder it onto the PP

actually that brings up a good point, why dont i look and see what is supported in the kernel to reduce developer time, make sense to me smile.gif
