    Hi All,

    I put a review of the DSXtreme hardware at the following:

    DSX Review+Hardware


    I got banned from the DSX forums for putting this information up there and trying to open a topic of homebrew firmware for the DSX.

    Now if you and a crack team of programmers can come up with a decent firmware update, that'd be hella impressive!

    I wish I had the time [​IMG]

    The links provided to the Cypress Chipset info have downloads of a reference firmware and source for the USB controller.
    The FPGA is another thing....

    Guess we'll never know because it looks like the thread was deleted, I can't find it any place.

    What did you do? Usually they'll close a topic, so you must have done something to warrant special treatment.

    Of course, I'm not one to take people at their word who write "let's just say..." then fail to elaborate.

    By the way, the images from that post won't show if you aren't registered to their message board.

    I just posted the information in my, "Under The Hood" review, and tried to encourage others to start some self help with regards to firmware.

    Very Bizzare [​IMG]

    This is the message you recieve when trying to log into the forums :

    Now tell me why you think your "2 week" ban was uncalled for? Also I was prepared to discuss it as my freetime on gbatemp isn't to point this out to you! If you felt unhappy about your post being deleted on the forums you should have pmed a mod. I'm not sure if you know how forums work but if you done that on any other forum im sure they would give you a ban also.

    I would prefer to talk about this in a pm, if you think your ban was uncalled for you can come and speak to me about it afterall thats what im there for.

    Thanks for the reply, doesnt really answer why a moderator saw fit to remove a decent informative thread?

    The hardware review does show what a really decent piece of kit the DSX is.
    Programmable USB Controller..
    Programmable FPGA..
    The only problem is the lack of firmware and software applications to take advantage.

    Well I can't really answer for that(as I didn't remove it) but I wouldn't have removed it. Thats why you should pm us if your post is removed then we can sort something out [​IMG] We do make mistakes sometimes and therefore are open to discuss deleted threads. I can look into why your post got deleted and then if i find out anything I will pm you on he ds-x forums.
