Re: AAC support needed

I'm using the Asus WL-500g (both the deluxe and premium models), not the 520U. These have 2 USB ports already. Doesn't the 520 have the option of adding an internal USB port as well? I know the 500 has an internal header to add another pair of USB ports.

True. I always use a USB memory stick for extra storage.

Re: AAC support needed

You can use a newer version of OpenWrt. I personally use openwrt 10.03, which includes mpd 0.15.8 with ffmpeg. This has AAC support (I'm assuming this works. Haven't tested it though).

Re: Sound problem

Yes, a USB hub can cause these kinds of issues when the host (i.e. you router) cannot provide enough power for all the devices attached to it. So I wouldn't be surprised if powering the hub solves your issue.

Re: Any chance for a board to be produced?

Thanks for the kind words everybody. The keypad (up/down/left/right/enter/mode) is used to navigate the player's mp3 collection (stored, in my case, on an NFS network share). I've created a repository on github which includes all the code (both on the AVR and router-side), all the Eagle schematics a...

Re: Router not receiving data from AVR

Are you comfortable making changes to the code? I tend to connect an LED to one of the GPIO pins of the microcontroller so I have at least some means of producing debugging output. That way, you can check if the ADC value inside the microcontroller corresponds with what you expect. As a last ditch e...

Re: Any chance for a board to be produced?

It works! This is the board after etching (The picture is blurry, not the PCB :) ). As an aside, this was my absolute first ever try at toner transfer PCB production, and I'm amazed at how easy it is and how high the quality of the result is. I'll definitely be making many more PCB's using this meth...

Re: Version of OpenWRT

Unless Jeff answers this, it may be hard to find which SDK is compatible with the image you find on MightyOhm.com. The easiest thing to do would be to install an official release and use the SDK that comes with it. The downside of this is that you probably won't be able to fit a working wifi radio i...

Re: Any chance for a board to be produced?

Ok, one more revision. I got the advice to avoid 90 degree angles in PCB's, so here's a design without them. I also added back a 10 uF stabilizing cap near the 5V input, just to be safe.

Re: Any chance for a board to be produced?

Here's a new version of the board. The autorouter pissed me off, so I did the routing manually this time. This has lead to a much tighter design, IMO. I also removed the voltage regulator circuit, since the power supply solution will probably differ for every build, and it didn't make sense for the ...
