This instructable covers how to build, mount and control LED light bars to provide for full color ambient room lighting as well as ambilight style video effects.
Let me first start off by saying this is a wall charger for your ipod shuffle and i have taken the time to make very easy to understand diagrams for everyone, originally the german pinout diagram for the 3.5mm mini jack is well just very basic.
This Modification will guide you though the process of upgrading your Zune hard drive to a new 40, 60, or 80gb hard disk. The Mod is simple enough, it requires no special tools except a screwdriver, a scissors and one of the Toshiba Hard Drive.
This mod will guide you through the steps necessary to open your Zune FM transmitter and connect a longer antenna to inscrease the range.
Here is how to build an dock extension cable for iPod that would allow you to connect your iPod to a dock without having to put the iPod directly on the docking cradle.
Use the remote Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to increase or decrease the volume. When the volume is changed, the gain, display and bar-graph meter are updated appropriately.
I decided to build a plain simple Winamp IR Controller to control Winamp's basic systems i.e. Volume, Play, Stop, Pause, and etc. and I began to build it by firstly replacing the original circuit board with the one of my own. The board contains a PIC16F628, a 74LS32 OR Gate, a 2N3906 PNP transistors, a 78L05 regulator, 4 MHz crystal and an IR LED together with some push buttons.
This is build around the MP3 decoding chip from ST. This perticular design is aim for a portable system. However, the D/A chip used require 5V power supply, so a dual voltage inverter is required to boost the voltage from 2 AA cell to both 3.3V and 5V.
This is an add-on for The Super-Simple pocket size mp3 player describes elsewhere in this category. You will have to start with building the original design first. From there on, only 8 wires are needed to connect the LCD. The LCD used is the LPH7779 (NOKIA 3310 LCD) with its integrated controller chip PCD8544. It is easy to interface, quite cheap and takes less than 1mA at 3V.
It is based on the PIC 16LF877 with plenty of processor time to spare. There is a bare bones assembly version, and a new C version with more features and stability. It uses compact flash cards up to over 100 gigabytes including microdrives. It uses the vs1001k decoder chip.
