|A few months ago the isp (uswest) that my father was using for his web top box said it would nolonger support it so he got a refund, i got the box. this morning after opening it up i noticed it had what apears to be an ide connector. the box is made by NIC but the intresting part is that it is almost nothing like the ones in the pictures that have been displayed here. there is no cd-rom drive but this one does have a modem, but it also has a tuner, video in (rca), video out (rca), s-video out, wireless keyboard, smart card port (i think its desinged for internet shopping i.e. smart creditcard) and the kicker, it has keyboard, parallel, monitor, and serial ports. i have hooked this up to a monitor and it will drive it at aprox 320x240 using the internal os. my hope is to turn this back into a set top for my father so he may still acess the internet. any information you have would be greatly helpful. i will try to post pictures of it later.|
If god wanted us to leave things the way they were, why did he invent curiosity?
