Default Shigaclone to No-Clone

As the innards for the Shiggy are now rarer than rocking horse manure I have been looking for something that might be of interest to modders. I came across a top-loading DVD player Remote control for 17 Squids!!!


There is a volume control on it as well. Only Audio Outs (no Dig Out) and picture out (On RCA's)



ASDA Sp Dvdtl01 Dvd Player | DVD Player | ASDA direct


Here are some pics. I think that there is a lot that can be done with this, a la Shigaclone. There is a digital out facility on the Sunplus chip, and there are spare connectors on the board. Just a matter of finding the right one.
Boards are made by Samwin, who appear to bne linked to Oppo.

I reckon you could run a fresh PS to the chip board and leave the nasty Switch Mode to power the IR board only.

That looks like an opamp, in a socket in the DAC section!

If it is, this would at least be a good platform for rolling opamps.

Yes, I am trying to decipher the writing on it. It the smallest I hev ever seen and it isn't helped by a chalk mark or something scored across the top of it!

I took the board out last night and on the underside are markings for the power supply connectors (+5v, G, +12v, G). So easy enough to connect up another supply. There is also an unused connector which has two pins marked OP and G. I assume this is output, hopefully for the DIG out. It occurs to me though that the DIG out may only output 192kHz and not useable for CD. We will see.

By the way it sounds pretty good IMO in stock form. There are audio settings (accessed by playing a DVD) I have set it to 2 channel PCM and the frequency setting to max. Sound appears marginally better through a scart to phono lead than from the Audio RCA's.
