I think we should have a thread called Kodak Digital Picture Frame :)
I got my KDPF from compgeeks for $99. It is the NON-NETWORKED version. It has all the networking features in the menus (and has a phone line jack) but when you choose them it says they are disabled. Has anyone figured out how to enable them? Ideally, we could enable the networking features, then figure out how to have it downlaod pictures from some other site. i.e. Hook this up to my Windows machine via the modem and it dials out (to my Windows box). Then, on my Windows box I fool it into thinking it has reached storybox.com (with some DNS trickery) then somehow we tell it to get the pictures from some place like http://www.mypersonalwebsite/kdpf - then it would automatically download pics from where *I* want it to.
OR, we let it go to storybox.com through the Windows machine and use a packet sniffer and analyze the communications between storybox.com and the frame to se what's going on - then we just have to simulate this. Perhaps I could write a Java Servlet to do the storybox simulation.
I know someone did something similar with a Dreamcast to make it use his broadband connection via the DC's internal modem. Maybe it can be done with the KDPF?
First things first though - we have to enable the networking features (maybe just a BIOS change or something?)
If anyone has a networked-enabled version and can set it up to sniff the traffic, please do (and post the results)
