Re: Questions about Troika hardware

I'm still confused.

Aren't we all.

OK, I'll give you some known public info. about Troika NG's projects. Keep in mind anything and everything can (and did already) change without notice.

The Amy'05 project (aka Prometheus) is being headed by a fellow named Ian Stedman. You can read up on him a bit at his web site if you wish. I had an old non-working prototype board (aka the show board) in my hands at AmiWest in October this year. Last we heard was that the actual product is expected to ship mid-2007.

The Panda project is based on UDTech's Home Media Center design. This board was on display at AmiWest as well and I was so happy with it, I took it home with me. I happen to be helping Troika out with some testing duties so I have one. The trouble with the HMC board is that it is a non-standard form factor and has some options Troika don't need for their target markets so it is being reworked before it can be sold to consumers. To the best of my knowledge there has been no further announcements regarding possible shipping dates.

There are some more details I didn't get into (e.g. what options are being removed from the Panda) but that is the gist of things as they are known to the public at this time.
