DTV Hacking Viedos

I created this video to help would-be hackers clearly see how some of the modifications are made. I used music from as background music, for a nostalgic effect. I took video of the actual work of disassembling a Hummer game and turning it into a little computer. In many cases, I captured audio and video from the actual DTV board. So even though it is very clear, it is not an emulator that you are seeing. I edited the whole thing with Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5. 3D animations are done with Google Sketchup Pro.

The video isn't finished completely, but I'll put the chapters here as I finish them. If you just want to watch the video, I highly recommend clicking on the GOOGLE version, as it will stream to you in realtime from Google Video. If you want to have a copy of the video, they are available here in high-quality VideoCD and DVD formats.
