Prabhupada Cable TV
Posted May 21, 2007
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

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