Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
I would love to put something like that in my car, with one catch, I would want the screen to be external.
I decided running rockbox would be a waste, I'm working on getting linux going and then rockbox as an app so I can have storage on the network
I would love to put something like that in my car, with one catch, I would want the screen to be external.I already have an in-dash screen that runs off a composite video cable, and I'm feeding that with a Western Digital WDTV. (it has S/PDIF and reads any HD).
I just completed the first revision of the board and am about tosend it off for fabrication. I managed to fit the following into thishand-held 77x61mm 2-layer board that fits the Hammond 1553B_BAT case:- 0.1" 40pin Header with all usable signals exposed- 0.1" ARM JTAG Header as well as Serial-JTAG Header- 2 LEDs (Power and Debug/USB Host)- microSD (captive) for system files- SD (external) for user files- DDR SDRAM- USB Hosting- USB Device- Headphone Jack- Line-In Jack- Microphone- RCA Video Jack- 2 LCD connectors - 1.8" and 2.4"- Touchscreen Controller for the 2.4" LCD- Accelerometer- 2mm Boot Jumpers Most of the components are optional. I hope to start prototypinglater next week.
I'm very happy to hear something new about Lyre project!
Some questions about the recent update.1) casainho talk about Rockbox as being an app on Linux: this is reported also in the ideas list of Google Summer of Code 2010. How long can take to developers to realize a this "porting"?
2) With the new board that seems to be realized very soon, what about sound quality? We can expect a kit with a decent sound?
3) With the new palyer it will be possible to store the audio files on both HDD and SD memory card?
Would that be the Chumby one or Classic? Will it be able to have wi-fi from the board or will it need a secondary board for wi-fi? If it is the Chumby one the 2watt sound will be in mono or stereo inputs. Does it have just stereo inputs?
I already have an in-dash screen that runs off a composite video cable, and I'm feeding that with a Western Digital WDTV. (it has S/PDIF and reads any HD).I would love to upgrade/replace it with something running rockbox, but I'd need the same integration I have now.Any way to get rockbox with S/PDIF out and an external screen? (besides a port of Rockbox to WDTV, which I doubt would be trivial and popular)

From the last post, I see the board you're working now with has a USB host port, this is for inserting pendrives, correct? Great idea. Having a SD/MMC slot is great too.
One small consideration though... if I understood correctly, you're not going to use a color LCD, correct? What's the resolution that might be used, do you have any idea?
Greetings from Portugal - I hope local forum posts are cheaper...
