What?!?!

That's what I want, I want a low bit data stream say 96,000bps, an IC takes a the signal, extracts this embedded data stream and then supplies it to
your micro controller.

Why?.... I Believe the next generation of advances will be in TV entertainment, I believe a small, a large, a huge fortune could be made, if we could persuade big names
to encode a simple no nonsense stream which can be decoded and sent over Serial ttl, the same way teletext is encoded to give speech, I'd like to see a data line there to
instruct the processor what's going on in your TV (be it paid or free to air) or Blue Ray, DVD movies.

Your processor gets the signals to say everywhere is now in a dark area with low lit candle light, candlelight,25... this all controls real world items, such as your lights
have it control actuators and solenoids, have people REALLY knocking on your door, Servo,cmd,etc   but the data and values you get sent, we act on the instructions.

All of a sudden Steam of Jets appear from the roads as they break, you could have solenoids trigging off vallves to release steam, lighting, hell, let's bring in a water
pipe and spray everyone in the room.

Let's bring the realism home.. people do it on the cheap or pay big, point is there's huge amounts of money to be made in this, imagine a small servo attached to the window
servos attached to the doors, lights all fading in and out with the background colors...

cmd,data|cmd,data,candle,dim|blindinglight,255|doorknock,2|doorknock,3|valves,1|

every action, water running, bath, you name it, a command, lots of water 255, a little water, 1, door knock 255 hardest, 1; barely a knock.

A small ever growing protocol to control different devices, door knocks, to maintain some kind of global standard.

Who would be onboard if you simply got given a board and 3 pins + - Datapin, since it's a 1 way signal as it gets decoded, hollywood could start selling hollywood accesories, parts of film sets to interact with movies of theirs , or if you wanted your chair to vibrate with an explosion go and grab an IC and get programming and make your chair vibrate on all explosions.

i'm not even going to SAY what i thinking right now about how this could improve the porn industry ....


TV DataStreaming... anyone know if this is even feasible?

It is done already in digital TV transmissions. As well as the pictures there are packets of information about all sorts of things. Like what packets carry what channels, what other channels are available, subtitles in several languages and so on.
However this is not something that can be decoded by an arduino as it is in the multiplex of a complex system.

exactly... and if it can't easily be exploited what use is it.... unless there's a breakout and some kind of processor to give the arduino a low bit data feed?...

but that besides, would you be interested in this kind of thing? (anyone for that matter)

I personally wouldn't be interested in having my TV control room lighting, sprays of water and so on. My TV already produces pictures and surround sound, which is all I want.

If you want to implement this sort of extra channel then it seems to me you need to start by figuring out where these signals are coming from. Whatever solution you come up with to receive them is pointless if there is nobody sending them. Once you have got that part figured out, you need to go find a community of people who know about video stream processing who may be able to explain the algorithms and hardware needed to do what you want. I'm sure you'll find it needs something a lot more powerful than an Arduino.

Because the broadcasters control this who else can insert data in a broadcast stream?
Are you thinking of your own TV distribution system? Cable uses this method as well.
The data originator and the data receiver have to be coordinated for this to work, so who are you suggesting is who?

Arduino is not a server just a client which gets a low bitrate stream....

this is all hypothetical....

If you want to be slightly less hypothetical, consider piggy-backing this on top of something like youtube, where you have some control over the video stream content and also have a client which you can have *some* control over, running on a platform where real-time video processing is practical. Probably this will involve adding a channel to the media rather than poking around with pixel values. Anyway, if you get the encoding/decoding part working you might involve Arduino as a way for the client to access the various actuators you have in mind, but that's only a very small part of the problem. The rest of it has nothing to do with Arduino.
