I have got some Intel DVI boards.
they are compressed video decode/playback/overlay boards.
I would like to build a home automation system that will pop a menu up over
the image on the TV and maybe shrink the picture to a 1/2 size window with
the menus on the sides and bottom of the screen. I would be great to be
able to use X or Motif to build the GUI And run it with a remote control
joystick. I have seen IR Joysticks in some of my catalogs for $24.00
and I have seen drivers for um... another GUI/OS that would make a joystick
act like a mouse.
