Ok, this is pretty sweet.
A while ago, I picked up an Hauppauge HVR-950 and got it all set up and working. It’s a truly remarkable little piece of hardware, I should tell you; both standard- and hi-def TV, IR control, over-the-air (including OTA-HD!) as well as cable reception, it’s basically all for the good. But I was missing what turned out to be a pretty key piece, the A/V cable accessory that is, naturally, sold separately. It provides RCA and S-Video-in that works right out of the box, a rare treat in Linuxland. (Well, not entirely out of the box. It’s not 1997 anymore, ALSA! Come on!)
So just for kicks I pulled out my GameCube, which has a Gameboy Player attached to the bottom, and I tell you this: when the nostalgia seizes you, the GBP is an excellent way to get your old-school Nintendo retrogaming freak on. There is a very distinct frisson, for which even the crafty Germans do not yet have a long word, that comes seeing those old three-inch-square games writ large on a modern screen. A WaveBird completes the experience, an experience that is, if I do say so, quite fine.
So if you’ll excuse me, I believe it might be the nineties, and that there is therefore time for Klax.
