Propeller chip + SPDIF = ???

So, kind of on a random whim, I decided to build a software SPDIF encoder for the Propeller chip. It was an interesting challenge, and the results are pretty cool, but now I have no idea what do do with it. Not an uncommon problem for me, I guess…

Maybe I’ll give my Propeller board an Ethernet port and build a Squeezebox-on-a-chip.

Update: Ok, so maybe that’s not such a crazy idea.. (or is it?) Anyway, I just found this, and I had to order a couple:

Now if only there was a simple way to capture all sound output from a Windows/Linux/Mac machine and stream it over the network… The ESD protocol doesn’t count 😛
