hack the nic!

i tore my $199 nic (new internet computer) apart today. the motherboard is very cute, all-in-one, no slots or anything. plus it’s a super 7, so i think it can handle 500mhz k6-2′s even. unfortunately, the pads where the rca connector attach apparently don’t carry the tv signal. i went into the bios and turned on the tv out signal, and i soldered in an rca cable. i attached it to the video-in on the tv, but nothing. there must be something else that has to be done to the board. i don’t see anything missing on the board (unlike the mediaGX boards, which were missing an ic.) anyway, i’ve got more photos in the stupid hacks section.
