Simulating a T-vo service signal

Is it possible to simulate a t-vo service signal. I want to use a T-vo that I bought at a thrift sotre, to record my outside surveylance cameras, but it wont let me record without the service. Can I bypass this, or simulate a signal somehow? can I make a service simulator for this? I dont want to use it to record tv, I have a dvd recorder for that, just for the cameras.

Why my servo doesn´t work?

Hi, I have tried this project : , about controlling servo with headphone´s jack, I just bought 2 servos TowerPro SG90 and when I tried both, none worked. Firstly I tried it with a 3,7V battery, then with a USB (5V), later with a 5.2V battery and finally I put the same as the tutorial (9V) but it didn´t work. I tried with the audios provided in the tutorial and I did new ones with audacity, with 1000hz frec 1ms duration (clockwise) and 500hz 2ms duration(counterclockwise), coping and paste every 20ms until completing 2 sec, but it didnt do anything. I want to know if I am doing something wrong or the servos are just broken (newly purchased).I edit, I just realized that if I apply 5V on the signal wire, it moves, is that because it is broken?Thanks for the help!

What technology is needed to "capture" a handprint on a t-shirt and evaporate to orginal blank t-shirt form?

I am looking for a technology (I was thinking LED lights) to capture a placed handprint on materials such as cotton t-shirts. Once the handprint is quickly captured, I want the handprint to evaporate through a quick reset procedure or within a few seconds naturally. Is there anything out there that will capture imprints on materials? FYI I have no technology background, so please be kind on choice of words in explaining your thoughts and ideas. Thank you

AT&T WiFi connection problem, help asap please!!

my computer and ipod touch seem to be fighting each other ip address wise, when one connects to the internet it steals the others internet connection and after a few minutes the device loses connection altogether. I've already set both devices to have private fixed ips .68 for one and .69 for the other. another thing is that when only one is connected on the mainpage the device says it is the other, so when my computer is connected but not my ipod it says my ipod is connected and vise versa. my main problem is they lose connectivity after a few minutes. i have also disabled the wifi protected setup(which att told me would help solve my problems). If any other info is needed please tell me, i really need this solved!!

Question by miiwii3   |  last reply

How would I build an electric generator with variable torque? It's my understanding that P=T*rpm, but that T is const.

I am interested in retrofitting a spiinner bike to produce electricity. The spinner currently uses brake pads to adjust the resistance. There is plenty of energy being 'lost' in the form of heat due to the brakes. I would like to be able to adjust the resistance of the bike without losing energy in the form of heat. I understand that gears are a possibility, but I would prefer to be able to adjust the resistance in a continuous manner. Any ideas? I've considered a CVT (continuous variable transmission) design, but this would be quite difficult. I've aslo wondered if the relative motion of a disk with permanent magnets to a disk of stationary coils would vary the resistance. I'm not sure what the range of variation would be however. Any suggestions or insights you might be able to offer would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Could you help us to build luminescent t-shirts ?

Hello all, First of all, sorry for the english, I am a french student :) We would need to make about 20 t-shirts which would shine in the dark, each one with a letter at the back and some lines of light on each arm. It will be hard to do, and we have a small budget, that is why we are requiring your help. Those shirts will be worn for a choregraphy, which make this project even more complicated :) After many hesitations, we thought we could use :   - for the light sources, or (red) Led strips, about 1 meter for the letter at the back, 1m on each arm, and we need 20 t-shirts (they are sold 25$ for 5 meters), or EL wire, or EL ribbon.  - for the batteries, they should be good enough to supply the led strips, it would be for example 12V 2Ah batteries, but they should be wearable, cheap enough... As you can see, we don't really know what is the best, which method would be the cheapest and the more realizable, if it could be worn, ... That's why we are requiring your help :) we would like to know if this project can be done. Thank you for you advices :)

Please help me with my LM317-T LED driver.

A while ago I bought a 10W 12V LED on line to see if I could build a small projector. Then somewhere, I hear you need to build a driver for it, otherwise you WILL blow the thing. So I start googling and tinkering and find a few basic formulas, P=IV, ==> P/V=I ==> 10w/12V=0.833A So I need to get a current of 833mA at 12v to run this light, next step. According to most sites, the cheapest way of doing this is with a simple LM317-T Regulator. The ADJ voltage on this is 1.25v, so, V=IR ==> V/I=R ==> 1.25v/0.833A= 1.5 Ohm. So I pick up a few regulators and a fist full of resistors at my local electronics shop, dust off an old soldering iron and thow it all together. Then I plugged it on to a 12v 1.0A Power Adapter. I'd heard the 317 had a Vdrop of about 3 volts, so I took some readings to make sure everything was ok. Got 620mA between the Power/LED, the LED/LM317, and LM317 to the Power, all is good. Voltage was 12.13v across the Power, 9.20v across the LED, and 2.91 across the LM317v (0.95 over the resistor). All the numbers looked fine. Here's where it got tricky. Knowing the LED was rated for 12v, and the drop over the LM317 was ~3v, I dug up a 15.2v 1.2A Power adapter, and plugged that in instead. When I took the readings however, my current was up to 810mA, but the voltage was still down at 9.56v. The Power adapter was at 15.20v, and the 317 was dropping 5.67v. This is the bit I don't understand. How can I get my volts back? I know the LM317-T regulates its current via the resistor, but I'd assumed the voltage was dependent on whatever you plugged in, minus a constant 3v drawn by the regulator. This assumption is obviously wrong. Is there a way I can get the voltage back?
