Who in the UK (or EU) needs/wants a USB LVI?

Post#1 » Wed Sep 20, 2017 5:44 am

EDIT:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have purchased enough parts to make 10 LVIs and now plan on taking them away to my work to assemble them when I have time.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I live in the UK and would be willing to make and sell USB powered LVI for people who need them. £10 + postage.

I am an electrical engineer, the build quality will be to a high standard. All components will be epoxy glued to the board but will not be inside a housing.

At the moment I am wanting to know if there is anyone interested in this as I will need to order the required parts before hand. I am currently abroad and will be returning home October 16. I only have a week to do this before I leave again so I only plan on making 5 or less.

If anyone is interested please reply to this topic.

EDIT: I will be prioritizing for people who dont already have one. My aim is to get new players online.

I could also get more people in the UK for you so that you can complete your order of 5

Hi DC UK. Thanks for that. I'm trying to prioritize for EU people that dont have a DreamPi yet and are getting put off by having to make a LVI, especially an EU one. I will make them for people that have one already though.

Does anyone here not have a DreamPi but is thinking of getting one?

I'm in Ireland and I would love one!

I have a Pi Zero that'd be perfect for this.

Hi Mr Vestek. Thanks for the reply. You will need to get a modem as well. I recommend the Lenovo one. Thats what I use and is easily available.

What distance will the Pi be from your Dreamcast? - Just so I have an idea how long to make the telephone lead.

I would be interested too but im planning on ordering live USB soon from the US.

This is the powered telephone line right?

It will work with this?

Cos2k3 - The Lenovo USB modem is the correct one. That is the one I use.

The LVI is the powered phone line.

You will probably be better ordering it for the US as I wont be home until 16 october to start making them

Ok sure, like I say I have 5 people wanting to get their Dreamcasts back online (I’m sure I still class as an EU person being from the UK, we’ve not left the EU yet) lol. Let me know when your good to go
