Weekend was nice, we got to see Gangs of New York, which actually was a lot better than what we expected. We went to see it partially because it's a Scorcese movie and prtially because of all the awards nominations it has got. I must say that it probably deserves a few of them. :)
Started soldering some new cables for the digi TV box. It doesn't have S-Video output as a connector, but you can get S-Video from an internal connector, you only have to create a cable for it. With a good description it's very easy. While we're at it I'll also solder upp a little LED display for the machine. As it has no other UI than the TV it's hard to know what the box is up to, so I'll add some LED:s so that we know when it's recording something. It's quite easy to get a parallel port to light up some LED:s, and controlling the port from software under Linux is fairly trivial. The only drawback is that I'll need to add an external connector to the parallel port, and then from that connector again get the wires for the LED:s inside the box. A bit ugly, but the only way I know of.
Civil progress has been slow. Did some fixes to make sure that LOS data is sent to connecting clients. Not too much remains to be done before 0.82 can be unleashed onto an uncaring world. :)
