Re: Some questions on USB host when modded to a Kuro
- Hm, 200MHz and 64MB should really be enough for playing some audio or
drive a scanner.
Users scanned in the past large Images even on 486 with 66 MHz and
16MB RAM without problems....
You won't do processing on the device, only drive the USB and transfer
data. OK, for MP3 playing you need some cycles, but 200MHz PPC ought
to be enough, for that too. TV I also think is too much, even with a
digital box which would only stream MPEG data to disk...
