Connecting FB to computer

by SolG3 on Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:53 pm

The fuzebox has an S-video port and a video and audio port to connect to television sets, is there anyway for the fuzebox to connect to a PC or laptop in order to test out the programs. I am asking this because i do not have easy access to a TV in order for me to test out my programs. So if there is a way to connect the ports threw usb and maybe emulate a TV on a pc that would be great. All input is appreciated :D

Thank You

there are a number of video input devices available to input composite or s-video into a computer.

an easy way to test programs though is to use the uzebox emulator: http://www.uzebox.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=187

much faster than reprogramming your AVR every time you edit your code.

Yep the Uzebox emulator rocks and is cycle perfect. And if you guys like it, leave a good comment to the freak who developed it, Dave Etherton (get over to the Uzebox forums for that). :)

Hehe, and more to come! Very, very soon, the first SD card application! And it's gonna rock...literally. :mrgreen:

Stay tuned!

The emulator uses SDL, and is available as source, so it should be possible to get it running on Linux with little to no trouble. It runs fine on Mac OS X.
