Re: Some very good audio news

Re: Some very good audio news

Looking at the PCB pics, I'm wondering what type of jack is going to be used for the audio... Am I right in thinking this isn't just a stereo jack or will it have a line-in/mic socket also?

Re: New hi-res pics of the PCBs on the front page

Doesn\'t look like mp4 can be sent to the forums...

I\'ll try another format :S

Edit:
Looks like I\'ll have to send it to YouTube...

Re: Mounting holes on R-Pi?

<t>If anyone has a 3D printer and makes some side slotted PCB mounting brackets with screw holes, I would be interested in purchasing some. They wouldn't need to be large and you could produce them in high quantities in a single print run... I would guess at around £4 per 4 units would cover costs a...

Re: Preinstalled kernel modules

IrDA support would be great (IrCOMM and IrDA-USB would be a real bonus also).

I'm not sure what the 2.6.35 kernel has regarding IrDA as it seems a few of the projects aren't updated anymore.
