Hi folks.
I thought you might be interested in what I've used my Beagle Board
(C2) for:

(Also, at http://beagleboard.org/hardware , the picture is of a B7 rev
board instead of C2, could that be fixed please?)

Cheers,
Brian.

As to the picture, we have 5000 Rev B boards out there. We don't want people to think their board is not supported. I will see what we can do. Maybe we can add a smaller picture of all three versions.

At least on the picture with the BUY button I would expect a rev C2
board as taht is what you are buying.

Actually, rev C2 are about all sold out. So, it would be a rev C3.

That is the coolest thing I've seen for ages.
It's particularly impressive the fact you've got the keyboard working.
I hope you didn't kill an original speccy 48K making that mod!
The speccy will never die.

What is the delta between C2 and C3?

Optional RTC backup battery.
Mounting holes conected to ground.
Slightly improved S-Video.

VL1220 series. There are several that will fit. I will have these listed in the new SRM.
