Thanks for that Keith.

RxM, that is the circuit schematic these boards are built from. So basically just lift and ground all the pins listed at the top of the schematic. Then connect all the other pins listed to the appropriate points on the board. Then you are good to go.

At the risk of sounding like an idiot what is meant by lifting the pins? My assumption is it means to lift them off of their pads but in the photos it looks like they are still attached to the pads. Sorry for any confusion.

No problem at all. Lifting the pins does mean to unseat them from their pads. Ideally you use hot air or an iron and apply heat while using a pick or similar device to separate the pin from the pad. Once it's separate from it's pad, you just connect the pin to ground. Some people do it similar to how I did it, others may connect each pin individually.

In my photo you will see a L shape along the chip connected to a blue wire. I bend each leg up and then solder each one to a component leg from a capacitor. Then I attach a wire to it and to ground.

The other wires you see are all the wires that must be attached for this circuit to work.

Hey MobiusStrip,

In your pic that you have provided wires Red, Blue,Yellow and Green are they soldered to the pins or the pads directly to the HuC6260?.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  The RED wire gets soldered directly
to pin 41 of the HuC6260 chip or the pin need to be lifted first then the RED wire gets soldered to the pad where the pin was origially lifted? Also pin 41 of the chip is that where i tap to get 5V?. 


Thanks
RxM

Hey RxM,

For the soldered wires, just connect them directly to the pins and don't lift those ones. You are correct with pin 41, the red wire connected to pin 41 is pulling 5v and that pin is not lifted. You don't have to pull 5v from there. I just did it for simplicity sake. I hope that all makes sense.

I should have more of these prebuilt in the next week or so. Just waiting on them to come in from fab and they already shipped to me.

For anyone else who wants them, I have more of these rebuilt now. After I run out of these I am not going to be ordering more of either of these circuits.

What is the best connector to use to provide the AV out? TRRS?

It depends on your preference but I like the TRRS setup. It keeps the case clean. You can also replace the tuner jack with an 8pin mini-DIN or something similar. I have seen people just use a panel mount jack and screw it into the case, but personally that's not what I would do.

Sure thing. Within the 48 states they are $5 each shipped. Doesn't matter which version. Just let me know how many you want and which style and I can get them out to you. Feel free to pm me if you prefer.

I still have some of these, both styles, if anyone wants them. I won't be making any more of them when I run out.

do you use the link jack socket for an A/V out?
