    I want plans for a Pirate TV Transmitter! :) Please

  2. Gino says:

    why don’t you just post the camcorder hack link. everyone else already has, and there’s no point in saving it up.


  3. omirix says:

    yea, plans for the tv transmitter would be a nice hack :)

  4. rich says:

    Hacked CVScam and RAID array now on /.

    This means war.

  5. chris says:

    How far are you guys wanting to transmit said tv signal? You can buy a UHF transmitter for $25. Only works for a few hundred feet max though.

  6. chris says:

    Uh, that said, I’d like to learn how to build a tv transmitter that will transmit several inputs to individual channels without interference.

  7. the camcorder hack is not done yet… because if you read at all the guy did it buy removing the memory chip from the camera… the purpose of the hack was to make the cameras videos removiable through the onboard usb interface…

    As cool as spectroscopes can be, the Solar Cooker that the same guy built / posted instructions for is waaay better.


  12. Doug says:

    You should show all the links…

    #7- You are totally right. I didn’t write the slashdot summary, so I haven’t used the word “hack”. This is only a proof-of-concept – it is evidence that strong encryption isn’t being used and there is a very good chance that video can be transfered to a user’s computer. Still lots of work to do if firmware disassembly is required (like it was for the last two cameras).

    – “the guy”

    Vince – enjoyed the philly video, wish I could have been there!
