Kind of sad that this was the last posting on this forum, and a year
has gone by!
Well, if anybody is still reading this -
Yet another year passes, my hair goes even greyer (ugh), and the OSD marches on. Last night it did a perfect job of recording The First Eucharist of Christmas
(sort of like a midnight mass) for my mother. Today, yet another Doctor Who
special, followed by Troll Hunter
, plus anything that looks interesting on NHK World
(it's their Viewer's Choice programs rebroadcasting the best things of the year voted by viewers - https://www.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/vc13/index.html
To Gerry - if you are still here - I have ordered some flying leads with clips from eBay. Company says it might take as long as 60 days to come from Hong Kong (what, is it tied to a migrating bird?). It is my hope to hook the leads up between my RaspberryPi and the dead OSD to perform JTAG using the Pi's GPIO. I do have a parallel port JTAG dongle that somebody sent me, but the problem is that none of the computers I use nowadays have parallel ports! I plan to attempt to resuscitate, it might just take me an eternity to get around to doing so!
