I haven't given up hope per se, just hope about help on this forum.
I'm still persuing it, just on my own accord.
Doug got back to me, to tell me he was busy and would be getting bacl to me...heheh
I've made another contact as well through a friend.
One thing I've learned from the people on this forum is that it's very hard for them to differentiate betwen what they think could be done and what could ACTUALLY be done for a consumer ready product.
Hacking something together is still an option, but it's not an option for a consumer ready product.
