    You said a volume control is doable in the first post. You have got to sell an addon like the phidget encoder for this! Basic control that everyone and their mother needs.

    We will have one, it will take up two inputs, either analog or digital, your choice. It will cost between 10 and 15 dollars. Probably June 2007.

    With a digital input, lets say that I have button I want to use to raise a parameter, like volume, by a value of 1. It would be nice if, by holding the button for 2 seconds the volume went up at a specified rate.

    With analog inputs lets say I have 3 I plan on using. For this example, temperature, voltage, and amps. It would be nice to have a group of settings I could use with that input to equate:

    (these example are rough and meaningless in nature to real applications)

    1. Temperature - 1V to 5V = 32F to 128F with settings for sensors with a positve or negative temperature coefficient.
    2. Voltage - .5V to 5.2V = 0V to 12V
    3. Amps - 20mV to 100mV = 1A to 15A

    So a control to select Units, and high and low equivalents, with a negative coefficient selection. Units, I guess would be string values.
    It's been a while...

    This will be coming, but is not done yet. This requires either parsing an equation or setting defalt values differently. The current temperature sensor we have is hard programmed in there for instance.

    It is expected to be done between beta testing and release.

    i was wondering about an update on the ETA of the boards (I really am impatient)... Also with the latest update to StreetDeck Iv had to ditch the program I was building, so I will probably try integrating the program strait into StreetDeck or use the DLL that Fusion Brain will provide... or something in between.

    They should be in the mail sometime this week. We caught a few bugs already, and are working them out. Keep in mind this is a full product development from scratch... it takes time. We will post a video of it working later today.

    I know how that goes... I built my own RFID kill switch for my car. I was just wondering how it was going plus I wanted to give an update on my side of things.

    Current status:
    Digital Outputs - all functional and tested
    Analog Inputs - all functional and tested
    Digital inputs - tested, needs minor change in firmware (<5 minutes) but I am away from my PIC programmer.

    so: The beta boards will be shipped this week for SURE. Then, we will have a beta period, likely a week or two.

    updated 4th post to reflect the above.

    please give Nick and I feedback on how we are doing. we are here to serve you. we can shift around priorities, work on different aspects. about all we can't change is the overall timeline... I know you guys want this immediately, but thousands of lines of code and hundreds of hours of research don't happen instantly.
