Hey guys, i had an ider the other Day. Its just theoretical because the cost/use effectiveness is way off but its an interesting concept i think. A universal console combiner. I thought of it like that. A machine in wich you can mount all your consoles and play them with one Controller and need only one powe plug and hdmi Slot. Sounds impossible? Then read along and See if it really is. I will begin withthe principles: You buy a console and mount it into the ucc(universal console combiner). Inside is a hdmi switch with sufficent Slots and a sufficent amount of ac Sockets for the consoles. So far so good but nothing special. Lets add a Bit of "magic". A small PC. Maybe a rhaspberry pi or something like that with a Programm to controll all consoles. This could work like that: You take the boards of the controller for your consoles and solder them so that you can give the input (Button presses etc.) per USB or something thats connected to the PC. Now you have to connect the contacts of the Power puttons and eject Buttons of the consoles to a i/o board connected to the PC. Sounds compicated and probably is but has to be done only once per console. It works like that: You Power up the ucc and get a gui on the screen where you can choose your console. You pick one and that one Starts, activating that hdmi Slot on the switch. Now your Controller input will be translated to the original Controller and can be used to play. The controller of course must be of an universal Design to be compatible. So if you shut down a console the gui will Show again. Now the hardest and possibly impossible Part. The drives. I thought that it should be theoretically possible to wire the Output of a good blueraydrive to the reading contacts of the consoledrives. Either that or building an automatic disc Jockey that Puts the disc into the correct console. Well its a Bit confusing perhaps and like i said pure theory, but what Do you think?
