    KnobsNSwitches Conquests

    I really like SoundJam. It has Shuffle By Album, even so long ago, it still baffles me why Apple never had built in on iOS.

    Well the World's Most Overcomplicated Jukebox is fully functional: I've got 40 GB of MP3's that play great through SoundJam MP. iTunes 2 is really unstable with a library of that size in Mac OS 9. (SoundJam is...relatively stable). Spotify plays via sound-in on the iPad mini. WhiteCap works as a visualizer as a plugin in SoundJam and a standalone program for the Spotify tunes. The whole thing works pretty well, and I'm able to mute sound via the 6500's remote at my desk. I still haven't figured out track skipping via the remote and I don't know that it's even possible.

    Performa IR remote iTunes

    I've been searching but I can't find anything yet. Maybe someone remembers if there was ever any bits of software to 'remap' the Performa IR remote commands? I have a remote, it works great and the play pause buttons work in AppleCD Audio player...but i'm wondering if there's anyway to make the play pause button work in iTunes or SoundJam. I'm in Mac OS 9.1

    Well, my 6500 jukebox project continues. I purchased a cheap IDE-SATA adapter, and copied the 6500's system and 60 gb of mp3's to a 120 GB SSD I had lying around... It boots, but the performance is not great. It takes minutes to boot (sitting on the Happy mac for ages), and seems to be really unstable, as in 'plays one or two songs in iTunes then freezes' unstable. The SSD seems to work fine on my modern mac, so I have to assume it's something with the IDE-SATA adapter. I put the original 6b HD back in and as a whole the system is much more responsive, which is not what usually happens w/ a hard drive vs solid state.

    This 6500 has a couple quirks, I purchased it from a member on here, and the internal video does not work, but it happily displays video via a PCI Rage 128 card. But it seems that the video-in hardware does not work without functioning internal video - launching Apple Video Player will play sound coming in the RCA jacks, but no video window ever shows up. But the case is in marvelous shape.

    A 6500 has joined the party, displacing the Macintosh-TV-in-a-575, at least for now. I also picked up separately a remote, does any one know if it's possible to remap the play/pause buttons to work in iTunes v2 ?

    Viewing video in on a 6500

    I have a recently acquired 6500...I just thought I'd see if I could hook a game console up to the video in just to see about viewing or capturing for fun. But I launch the Apple Video Player and I don't see anything other than the controls window with an MPEG button and a sound button...am I missing something simple? Or is there different software I need?

    PowerBook 2400c questions

    Sorry, I missed your question here. I actually...don't remember exactly what I did. But my 2400c is on 8.6 right now. I seem to recall doing a clean install of 8 - 8.1 - 8.6 on a different CF card than I was originally using, rather than moving System Folders back and forth. But I didn't write down the exact fix. I admit I'm a little fuzzy as my 2400 died and I got a parts machine and pieced things back together, I don't remember where the OS copy issues got solved in there. So not a super helpful answer I suppose.
  9. I really enjoyed the cached netscape home page. That was a neat touch.

    ADC video card that works for 6400 ?

    This has been a great discussion....bascially, I need to get a cube. I mean, I'd hate this monitor to go to waste. Fortunately, ScutBoy has already been in touch about a potential one.

    ADC video card that works for 6400 ?

    I think I mean 17”
  12. I realized in I have a 15" ADC connector LCD just sitting around, not doing anything. Is there a thing as a PCI video card with an ADC connector that could work in a 6400 series? Or is the old external ADC adapter the only way to go? (well, or buying a g4 cube...

    You can do usb in 8.6 so there’s that.

    $35 for a 270c is a great deal! Nice find. And yes, the duo keyboards were pretty awful. And tended to go bad.

    ...maybe the color classic's massive power supply just outputs SO MUCH POWER it would work sometimes
