Just got another system that was on my wanted list for some time. The PC Engine, Interface Unit and CD-Rom2.
I’ve had a Duo console for a while but nothing beats the original pair, like the Megadrive and MegaCD; just looks so cool.
Its very hard to find one of these CD drives that works, and I’m lucky that this one does although the audio playback is skipping a bit. Still not bad when you think that its heading to 30 years old!
I’m planning to give this system a full servicing, new laser unit, capacitor kit and RGB video mod.
A good friend of mine has been busy playing with the Orange Pi board (a more powerful version of the Raspberry Pi). He’s set up a WordPress website actually hosted on the tiny computer, and is keeping a blog of his network and programming projects.
Just some info on how I got a Dreamcast to run in my Naomi universal cabinet.

To go with my modified Sega nomad with new LCD screen, I made a high capacity Li-ion battery pack.
