So, I am trying to wrap my head around this, but I think it should work. so, you can play games with the remote control, right? So if we remove the board from a remote, I have not opened the remote yet, so I could be way off base with this. Mount the board in an arcade stick type box, obviously with the transmitter facing the front. Use the contact traces in the remote to solder wires to corresponding buttons on the arcade stick. Use the arcade stick you built making sure to keep it facing the dvd unit. I need to play some games with the remote see what works and what doesn't with the remote. Guessing the stick it digital, not analog? someone tell me if this theory seems reasonable. No proprietary chip for the remote, because i have used other remotes on the dvd players before. tell me if this is stupid, won't hurt my feelings

It might work but it would be probably be very laggy. It also probably would not have all the functionality like Analog, etc.

so, i have decided I am going to try this. I am going to sacrifice a remote. I am actually going to try it with a different samsung remote that is very similar to the nuon first. I am going to take a slighly different approach. I want to build a box that will house the transmitter remote board, and put a connector so I can plug a controller with a cord to it. I bought a sacrificail remote should be here before christmas, and also bought a couple of old serial cabled logitech wingman controllers to play with. Using this approach rather than the arcade box, one i have anormal controller, but secondly keeping the transmitter in a second box, I don't have to worry about the controller not being pointed at the player when i move around. before i get started i am gonna play around with a couple games using the remote. if this works, maybe I go with the completely wireless version which would be the arcade stick. If this doesn't work, or lag is too bad, then oh well, not like it is a big loss., just some time and a 5 dollar wingman controller. If it does work, it gives someone a hack to actually have a controller that can be had cheap

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
