Diskless time shifter
I'd like to support a local swim coach by giving him a time delayed video monitor. I built an underwater video camera for him and now want to set it up so that he can record the kids turns and then have a 20-50second delay to a TV at mid pool. The kids will swim to the wall execute thier turn and then stop at mid pool to watch the tv screen output of the turn they just did.
The fantasy system I have in mind would have no hard drive and would boot up into the time shifted video in-out arrangement with no user input needed. The coach would just have to place the camera and monitors and then boot the computer.
We are willing to consider offering a bounty up for this. An appropriate contribution to the Mythdora project in return for posting a boot CD that would perform this task..???
I have a Radeon 9200 w/TV out AGP card and a TV Wonder for input and am currently getting a computer set up to do this project. Other input hard ward is possible if there is something more reliable and bug free.
