mithroPeople here might be interested in our new FPGA based open video hardware at https://www.crowdsupply.com/numato-lab/opsis ?04:37
DocScrutinizer05mithro: I see :-D >>The Numato Opsis hardware has a large amount in common with the Milkymist developed hardware, being built around the same FPGA core and designed for high-speed video manipulation.<<22:05
mithroDocScrutinizer05: yes, we even use misoc/migen for our hdmi2usb firmware these days22:23
DocScrutinizer05mithro: I'm not familiar with milkyway either (except for some cursory circuit review). I wonder if that opsis can receive and decode copy-protected stuff22:54
mithroDocScrutinizer05: milkymist22:54
DocScrutinizer05oops yep22:54
mithroDocScrutinizer05: well, if someone ported the netv stuff it might be usable for that, but not a use case which we are supporting22:55
DocScrutinizer05I see22:55
DocScrutinizer05anyway it can decode the HDMI data it hands through from input to output? as well as encoding such data again?22:56
DocScrutinizer05I recently noticed a very annoying thing in a PC I have here: when the HDMI screen attached during boot gets unplugged, it needs another reboot to make it work again after re-plugging it. I gather HDMI negotiates some connection from PC to the display during boot, and that breaks and never gets re-established when you unplug the display22:59
DocScrutinizer05this makes HDMI basically completely useless for PC monitors22:59
DocScrutinizer05in opsis feature tables I see "hotplug". Related?23:01
mithroDocScrutinizer05: yes23:02
mithroDocScrutinizer05: this is how our current HDMI2USB firmware works -> https://raw.githubusercontent.com/timvideos/HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware/master/doc/architecture.png23:24
DocScrutinizer05RTP streamer :-))23:30
mithroDocScrutinizer05: that is "in progress" at the moment23:51
