    UPDATE !!!

    I planned a blue 5mm led for power signal, and a bi-color led for the HDD activity,
    the led will be green when there's no activity, and will turn into red when the HDD will ba active.....

    I painted the 5mm led clips to blue, again, with a base color of white.

    Probably tomorrow i'm getting the AXP 1700+ processor and the FlyVideo 2000 TV Card !!!



    some pic's:

    pay attention to the blue led's head shape - it is rounded more then standart....

    Dude, that blows chunks... Sorry to hear it :(

    BTW: Do you mean spectrum analyzer and not graphic equalizer? I would still like to know the OS & software you plan on using for the front-end ;)

    I'm sorry to announce it.... but I have to....
    the project is queued.....
    i'm running out of supplies for the project - I have two pack's stuck in the post office..... they don't work.....
    today I am buying the flyvideo and the AXP 1700+, then all work on the system will stop.
    If ill continue it, probably it will be re-built all plexi...

    Thank for understanding,
    Avner
