RE: Total Telematics board

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

See StuartP's post. They use the same PIC but the Telematics board does not
use site player - so there is hope.

It'd be nice to get one to play with but right now my to-do list is too
long. I've just received my first batch of Dynalite kit but before I'm
allowed to play with that I've got a loft-space extension to do - currently
playing with big slabs of insulating board, not very high tech.

The Siteplayer chip has a standard, closed-source, firmware that
implements the IP stack in firmware, only allowing access on two ports -
80 (http) and one other (number I forget, specific to them.)

As such, it can't listen for xAP requests :-(

In principle it might be possible to re-engineer the firmware, but it's
closed source, and the manufacturer has been notoriously resistant to
working with any project / manufacturer who might want to listen on
other ports :-(
