This Weekend's Software Test
I still have not purchased the case and secondary center console yet. In the meantime, this weekend I am going to set my testing bench back up to install and test more software. One of them will be MyMobiler. Device Central, which I found out from testing in my Virtual Machine is already part of the Windows 7 OS and I suppose it only sets it up once it detects your mobile device USB connection. In any case, I want to try out the connectivity and control my Verizon xv6900 (HTC Vouge) from the Windows 7 Desktop using MyMobiler. I read in the forums that it works well, so we shall see. I am actually going to be getting the Samsung Omnia II...eventually, whenever that finally releases this century.
New Video Post- Watch .avi on Mirror/Monitor
I forgot to mention that I posted a new video on Vimeo. It's just showing how I can view movies on it using XBMC and navigating with my Wii Remote using bluetooth connectivity with my EEEPC (running gOS- Ubuntu-based Linux distro with Google Gadgets).
The link to the video since I can't get the Vimeo embed working:http://vimeo.com/6766137
New Selection Relating to Power Supply
I came across this thread here in the forums about a new product offered on mini-box.com. Its a DCDC-USB, Intelligent DC-DC converter with USB interface. Programmable by USB interface, able to output regulated 12V or can be changed by jumper selection, plus it's priced well under $100. Check it out!
This is something I may be looking into over the Carnetix. We shall see.
Windows Mobile Phone Control
I was able to successfully setup Windows Mobile Device Center and MyMyMobiler on my Windows 7. I setup connectivity with my Verizon HTC xv6900 (HTC Vogue). Here are the screenshots.
This is the normal view on top of the desktop:
This is the maximized view, fullscreen:
Wow! MyMobiler was so much simpler than I thought. No drama installation nor were there any issues editing the configuration file for additional tweaking. As long as I had my device properly setup and connected with WM Device Center, it's all good.
Internet Sharing Works (USB)
I was able to successfully get my internet sharing to work on Windows 7 using my HTC Windows Mobile Phone via USB. I have not tested bluetooth dial up yet. Although in the Car I found that Internet Sharing is more stable via USB than via bluetooth, both do work however..at least on LINUX.
In the car, atleast with my own experience, Internet Sharing with my Mobile Phone is more convenient and stable than using Wifi. So I am happy that this feature is working great on Windows 7. Either way at least I have a backup internet connection option, which is always great and convenient.
I am writing this post using my Internet Sharing Connection :peace:
I forgot to add that this also works while using Centrafuse.
