        did u pipe it through serial and use serial plugin from girder?

        I am not keen to go down the PS2 way according to the link.

          I have one of those.. got it for my old cellphone.... saw it laying there the other day
          and wondered if it would be compatible in any form....

          That would be awesome if there was some way to convert it to ps2 or serial or so...

          I have no insight to offer.. but I'll be listening to what you find

            my EPIA TC fried.

            now switching to a microATX board. setting up now. will have to wait a short while before starting work on the chatboard.

            how's your own project?

              Yes I used Serial interface and you guessed right Girder and Serial plugin. The initializion sequence is done also with girder. Here is a good link alltough I used a MAX232 IC the pinout was a little different but I still managed to stuff it inside the chatboard (there is only the cable coming out) https://securehost34.hrwebservices.n...sonChatBoardPC

              I'll post the serial config file and some key config file for girder later on. Iīts not totally complete yet but have been enough for me. It's the bomb when using GPS you can actually write the place where you wanna go. Later...

                      That usb thingy would be quite nice. How much does it cost?

                        You'd better put a pear of my serial BlueTooth chip with it, that would be

                        FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFF

                            Hereīs some files for ya!

                            Sorry for the picture quality samsung just doesn't have it . But anyway if you look at the rear picture you can see how I planted the MAX232 chip inside. The INI file is used to configure the serial plugin of GIRDER to suit the Chatboard and the GML file contains most of the keycodes. I also added the OSD wich asks to press the SMS button of the Chatboard(needed for initializion). Just take the .TXT extensions of the files first.
