In the mean time, ill work on cables.
A picture of the Xbox receiver, NES controller USB adapter, and USB port.
The Xbox receiver and USB adapter are taken out of their casings. I fasten the Xbox receiver to the case with heavy duty Velcro
the board is sheathed in vinyl (comes in a roll, used for that craft lettering people put on walls). I use the same vinyl for framing cutouts in the case. The usb controller adapter doesn't fit with the graphics card where it is now. Ill cut the leads, solder on wires, reroute the circuit board to a convenient location, and sheath it all. The USB port will be mounted laterally on the bottom of the case, similar to the old photos in my earlier post. Ill trim and sheath it as well. Having the usb in the front is far too unseemly, but having it just on the side is nicely convenient.
The pulse eight HDMI CeC adapter, mounted on top of the Bluetooth + wifi mini card.
This lets me control XBMC using my TV remote. XbMC is awesome, with all my movies, music, and games (wii, n64, snes, PC, etc) all in one place. It makes the nESPC act as any other home theater device: turning on with the TV, going to sleep when the TV is turned off, play, pause, etc in XBMC. Just plain cool
Ill trim and sheath these long wires too.
Btw, frontx is a fantastic place to get the usb end connectors and some similar items. Ships from Malaysia but shipping and parts are affordable. Not at all like getting a couple of screws from Frozencpu like I did :/
