@ Hans:

So true USB is like that.

Haha, My real amiga is an A1000, now tell me, is there a usb type card for that?(not that I know of)

SD card - ADF = Trouble for me.

It seems the only logical choice perhaps for me to even have a remote chance, is to try a catweasel?

Is there a internet site that explains more about catweasel limitations? or specifications?

Stephen Fellner, the author of DvPlayer, says that he might be able to optimize MPEG-2 decoding for the PowerPC 440 chip, assuming that there are enough users to warrant it.


In addition, many if not all recent video cards include logic to help accelerate DVD playback. It would take a coordinated effort between video driver developers to create a standard "video acceleration" library. This would then be available to developers of software such as DVPlayer. Or does this need to be built into each driver? I'm not sure.

Hint.   ;-)

@ Rob:

So it seems plausible then, for me to do it the catweasel way.

The answer to your question is, used to, until my 1060 expansion for the A1000 stopped working, so no, I dont have currently any type of hard drive available, but, I think if I can find a fellow amigaman to help me fix it here, perhaps from the aug group, then, I may have a chance.

Also, I figured, I might be able to connect it with the sam board somehow?? (usb an option??)

Someone just needs to convince AMD to give us the required documentation, and it could be done. Well, they've given us the 2D & 3D docs (ok, the 3D docs are incomplete at this point, but they're coming) so it could happen.

Interesting comment about OS4 development. I'm still hazy on how Amiga Inc and Eyetech are involved in this project.

Maybe it is somehow related to the aftermath regarding the dismissal of the case Amiga/Hyperion case.

That case was not Amiga Inc vs Hyperion, that was Itec vs Hyperion.  It was dismissed based on location of law suit (Judge said it needed to be in WA court and not NY state court)and not based on evidence of IP ownership.

@ Andeda:

Finally, they have shipped it officially and Am expecting arrivel on the 12 nov.

Unfortunately, the other tracking number was a fake from a hacker.

Anyway, I can finally soon be like the other os4.1 users out there, who are comfortably enjoying it as their daily amiga dosage

Cheers. 8-)  :-P  :pint:  :crazy:  :roflmao:  :angel:  :evilgrin:
