Embedded video solutions

I'm working on a project that requires the playing of short videos based on some physical conditions. The microcontroller and more general electronic end of stuff I'm fine with. What I haven't yet figured out is the mechanics of the video player mechanism. I want to use digital video stored on removable media (preferably CF or similar memory card storage). The videos will have no sound, be black & white, and probably low resolution (640x480 being the max size). I had originally planned to use an embedded linux system (gumstix verdex or some such thing) hooked to a TFT display. With some software running on the computer, it shouldn't be hard to control with serial communication. However, I'm not sure how well (if at all) mplayer would run on the Verdex. Also, if there's a cheaper solution I'd rather take that. I guess this post is to see what my options are. I know there are mp3 decoders on a chip (like the STA013) that produce output that you feed more or less directly into a DAC. Is there such a thing as a hardware mpeg video decoder (or divx, or quicktime, or avi, or whatever?) If something like that existed, I could connect the CF reader straight through my uC to the hardware decoder and pipe it out directly. Either to LCD or CRT (depending on which signal is easier). So, does this exist? Is it feasible? Thanks,

Plastic Screen Media Decoder

Hi Guys. I've seen a print ad that had a plastic 'zigzaggy' decoder gizmo stuck to it,  that I could peel off and use to 'decode' media as I slid the plastic over my screen, over a particular picture on their website.  The refraction of the plastic would 'decode' the image.

I need to use the decoded data to turn on/off LEDs. I already have the command and control codes of the IR transmitter I am going to use. IR sensor is TSOP1738 and transmitter will most probably be a remote using RC5 protocol. The thing is I dont know how to program the decoded data from the sensor. This data is need for me to turn on/off LEDs. Its like if switch 1 in the transmitter is pressed LED1 should glow. If pressed again it should be off. Likewise for 3 or more LEDs.

7 segment sed driver/decoder circuit help

Ive looked all over, and have already tried 3 circuits, but none work. They have either the wrong ic, wrong led display, etc. So, I want to make a circuit that, by using a decoder, I can flip 4 dip switches and make the display make certain numbers. I have a 7447 ic, common cathode led display, but I can only either find a circuit with a 7447 and a common anode, or a circuit with a common cathode but a different decoder (a latch/decoder/driver). Here is the first site I tried: when I finally flip the switches, nothing happens even though I made it exactly as shown. But it has a CMOS, so thats probably a big problem. I also tried this site: it has a common anode, and when I tried it it didnt work. I have exactly ELS321HDB. And I have a power unit that can go from 5 - 18 volts. Can anyone show me how to make this? Im not too good yet at reading circuit diagrams, because I seem to make it way more complex then it should be.

Decoding and understanding what your SDR scanner is receiving!?

For some reason, every time I upgrade my antenna I get more signals on my screen that I fail to decode or even understand.When I started this hobby it was mostly about voice transmissions and trying to get radio stations from overseas.Now I am starting to wonder what is behind these endless amounts of transmissions that my software fails to decode or recognise.Some things like TV, pure data or trunked system like the P25 are usually not a problem to identify.An awful lot though is not recognised at all.Also found quite a few signals that produce sound that just isn't right.No matter what type of audio is selected thest I describe these sounds is like weird space sounds with a lot of echo in them.Like a base tone that goes up and down in frequency and is overlapped by blips and beeps.I am not good at all with Linux.You could say Linux and I are like a cat and a dog locked in the same room ;)So I only used the common programs available for SDR decoding use that work with Windows.I guess my question would be:Is there a software out there that can identify the received signal automatically?You know, if doubt be routing the audio to it and getting something back like "Encrypted P25, LoRa data, DVB-T,....".And for whatever is not recognised directly at least something to help identifying the signal.A lot can be done by just researching the frequency allocations.At least down here they are quite strict and that means if you find some info that a certain frequency is reserved for data transmission on short range you can tick them off.The ideal thing of course would be something that works automatically as a complete packet.But I guess that will be a few more years till we get that pleasure :(

Decode Custom RF ASK Signal with Arduino & RadioHead

I have a remote that sends out a preamble, a pause and then a long code where a 0 is encoded as 100 and 1 is encoded as 110. I used an RTL-SDR to decoded the aforementioned ASK signal. I know the code is correct because I can simulate the signal using an Arduino and FS1000A. I simply connected the FS1000A's data pin to a digital pin and then I send out the signal. What I want to do is actually receiving the signal on the Arduino, i.e. which button was pressed on which remote (there are multiple remotes). For that I am using an XY-MK-5V and the Radiohead library. I used the RH_ASK driver sample code. However, it doesn't receive anything at all, meaning nothing is printed to the serial monitor.I think there are a couple of issues, i.e. it seem the Radiohead library expects a different preamble then what my remote sends and it also expects a checksum which my remote also doesn't seem to send. I haven't found a way to configure Radiohead so it can deal with my remote code. Is such a configuration possible. If not, what are the alternatives?

electronic/mechanical/ LED-Radio-Decoder Wedding rings?

Hey there,my future wife and I are looking for some fancy wedding rings. Well, we're both geeks, so it should be something that involves electricity or a nifty function ;-)Unfortunaly she's allergic to some metal components often used in steel or gold/silver, so titan or something like that would be more suitable. Aluminum or some plastics would work too, i guess.Thats the problem right there. Even if we'd find something online or a store that makes rings, they'll probably not work with titan since its harder to work with.I found some LED rings at as allways the problem is the metal and of course power.A battery would either have to be replacable or rechargable ;D (capacitor? but even a low current led wont even flash up with a tiny capacitor?)A solarcell so tiny it'll fit ontop of a ring without looking redicoulus would not be efficient enough I'dd guess.Of course, as previously stated, it could be something mechanical (as;[4]=30&products;_id=1297 for example)A nifty idea would be if the rings would actually do something when brought together (magnetism, induction, mechanism).I also had the idea of the rings morsing the date every few minutes on radio, much like all fails we'll just look into something cool to engrave (there are rings with laser engraved fingerprints as example) or we'll just embed a electronic part such as a resitor with a value representing the day we've met or such.ANY (cool) ideas apreceated, especialy about LEDs, sources/shops, adresses to shops customizing, and so on (but please, nothing over 50-200 bucks, we're not rich).I hope you guys / gals dont start to laugh at us now. We cant help it. We just want something unique and not a golden ring with some diamond. Some people really have rings that look ugly! Well, geeky LEDs do too, but at least they do something ;-)

Arduino Base64 encoding problem

I have a value that in a later step will be base64 decoded with some other values. The problem is that the input range for this value is from 0 to 10000 - so outside the 255 for base64. The line causing me the headache is from a Python script but the math for the Arduino are the same: NewValue = (((OldValue - OldMin) * NewRange) / OldRange) + NewMin OldValue can be between 0 and 10000 OldMin = 0 New range can be between 600 and 10000 OldRange can be between 0 and 255 NewMin can be between 400 and 1000 OldValue is used within the base64 decoding process like this: base64_decode(OldValue, &cmdbuffer;[bufindr][strchr_pointer - cmdbuffer[bufindr] + 1], line_raw_length); As this value is outside the 255 range I need a way to split OldValue into a low and high byte in a way usable for the above base64 decoding. I found some code that should be able to split but have no real clue how to implement it so it does work. Here is the splitting code I found: #include using namespace std; #define BYTE_T uint8_t #define TWOBYTE_T uint16_t #define LOWBYTE(x)          ((BYTE_T)x) #define HIGHBYTE(x)         ((TWOBYTE_T)x >> 0x8) #define BYTE_COMBINE(h, l)  (((BYTE_T)h << 0x8) + (BYTE_T)l) int main() {     // an array with 16-bit integers     uint16_t values[5] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 65535};     // split the 16-bit integers into an array of 8-bit ones     uint8_t split_values[10]; // notice that you need an array twice as big (16/8 = 2)     int val_count = 0;     for (int i=0; i<10; i+=2) {         split_values[i] = HIGHBYTE(values[val_count]);         split_values[i+1] = LOWBYTE(values[val_count]);         val_count++;     }     // base64 encode the 8-bit values, then decode them back     // or do whatever you want with them that requires 8-bit numbers     // then reunite the 8-bit integers to the original array of 16-bit ones     uint16_t restored[5];     int rest_count = 0;     for (int i=0; i<10; i+=2) {         restored[rest_count] = BYTE_COMBINE(split_values[i], split_values[i+1]);         rest_count++;     }     for (const auto &i; : restored) cout << i << " ";     cout << endl;     return 0; } In the original code and with all values just between 0 and 255 the decoding works just fine. But I had to increase the range for these values so OldValue can be anywhere between 0 and 10000. Is there any (if possible simple) way to get the decoding done properly? Or is there anything working I can replace the base64 encoding / decoding with? (problem here is that it has to work with Python and Arduino :( )

I bought a large box of what appears to be New Old Stock (NOS) of electrical parts at a garage sale.  In one box was a bunch of orange LED's and a piece of paper with the following written on it. Ir=6nA Uf=1.92V C=1pF Can anyone decode this for me? Duane

wall wart/transformer instead of batteries?

I have recently purchased a creative HQ-2300D and it only accepts two AA batteries for powering the decoder, there is no DC in on it. Can I use a wall adapter to power it? (it really eats batteries)The intended charger, output is 3.7v = / 355mAhThe reason I am wanting to use a transformer with it, is it would make it a lot easier as it is only used for gaming on the xbox 360 (to get the dolby headphone from the decoder) so it is never used "on the go" so changing the batteries/ recharging them is a mild annoyance I wouldn't have from a transformer turned on when I use the 360. It can't be as simple as wiring pos to pos and neg to neg on the battery terminals inside the decoder with the nokia charger because there is only a slight variation in the voltage.....can it?. I am also concerned about whether the transformer is regulated or not, reversing polarity, correct polarity etc. etc. and what else is important not important when attempting to do such a thing, so as not to destroy my decoder. (I did this before with a minidisc player and a Universal adapter on the wrong voltage, I didn't impress myself..........doh.... anyone smell that....)I tried plugging the nokia charger into another 3v device (an old sony tape deck) that has a 3v DC in, and it didn't seem to give it enough power to turn the tape, but when I plugged in a universal adapter and set it to 3v it worked fine.My idea is to remove the fem connector from the phone and rig it so it can be plugged into one of the battery terminals and the nokia tranny can be plugged into it, but it can still be removed for when I want to use batteries.I put it to all those with the knowledge who can explain in lay-mans terms and educate me on the best, safest, cleanest way to solve my dilemma.Thanks.

HAM radio repeater controller arduino

Is there anyone who can help me with a repeater controller, i need a little program which will switch according to input + 3 sec (or something like that) also i want to decode 4 bit paralel data (binary output from a DTMF decoder) and switch outputs accordingly (if correct code is pressed) (thins like identifier, time&date;, last transmitted message) thees functions i will make on separate boards, i just have to trigger them last transmission board needs an input from the arduino when to start, the playback will be done with one of the DTMF-code outputs any advise / code is wildly appreciated :) ps, im very new to arduino and have plenty to learn  kind regards, milan
