The world's first 100% Prabhupada cable TV station is about to be born!

Channel 3 will be Srila Prabhupada's lectures/conversations with synchronized transcriptions playing continuously at random, and will look something like: youtube.com/watch?v=pENRxREorZM

Channel 4 will be Srila Prabhupada's kirtans / bhajans with synchronized lyrics playing continuously at random, and will look something like: youtube.com/watch?v=EK4qHB2cZHs

Although, theoretically, it could be done with one computer, the simplest way to set up the transcendental TV station is with 2 computers. All that you would need are two desktops / laptops, each with Windows 98SE or later, Internet Explorer 5.5 or later, and TV out. I've already got 2 suitable desktop computers that I'm not using, one video card with TV out that I'm not using, and an extra coax splitter (tinyurl.com/yqnsht - used in reverse). Last week, I purchased two RF modulators (tinyurl.com/ytkjwn - US$16.84) from Wal-Mart, so all that I need now is the following:

(1) Video card with TV out (tinyurl.com/2xsxq4 - US$74.98)

My idea is that once it's set up, no computer monitors will be needed because the TV programming will begin automatically as part of each computer's boot up sequence.

I plan to begin by synchronizing Srila Prabhupada's first MP3 lecture CD (tinyurl.com/2e48xx) and his first MP3 music CD (tinyurl.com/2x6ml9). I hope to have them done by the end of the summer.

My dream is that someday all of the devotee homes and temples will have such a TV station feeding TVs in every room!
