I'm almost done with my new project. I only need a better video explaining everything, but I couldn't wait any longer posting about it.

CastDuino gives you an Arduino (master) that can send 8 text messages (80 characters for now) and 16 action messages to other Arduino's (slaves), which will show the messages on a screen of your own choice or/and can do an action predefined by yourself. All this can be done through the Master Arduino's embedded web interface.

this is the link to my CastDuino Project Page http://www.jo3ri.be/arduino/arduino-projects/castduino

If you want to try this, you'll need 2 arduino's with Ethernet shield or 2 Arduino Ethernet

Here is the first video about the CastDuino Project


Here are the first images of the CastDuino Master

That would not be problem, you only need to route to your CastDuino Master. Or did you mean, I should put one online for you to test out?

I'm not able to do that right now, but I managed to get TV-out working with nice scrolling, so here is my test video showing you a  you internet time and a message that has been broadcasted by a CastDuino Master and stored by this CastDuino Slave in it's EEPROM. The message is time dependent and only shown within the timeslot, configured in the Master and broadcasted along with the message.

Yep, We can  smiley-wink

for your Castduino Master:

1 Arduino Ethernet: € 39.90
1 power supply 12v: € 9.95

for your Castduino slave:
1 Arduino Ethernet: € 39.90
1 power supply 12v: € 9.95
1 1K Ohm resistor: € 0.15
1 470 Ohm resistor: € 0.15
1 rca chassis: € 0.60
1 22" LCD or LDE tv with component video input: € 149

1 switch: € 14,50
3 networkcables:  about € 1.00/m => 5m each = total of € 15.00

you might need 1 USB 2 Serial Converter for uploading your sketches:
1 USB 2 Serial Converter € 10.00

That is a total of € 279.10 without the USB 2 Serial Converter

and adding € 199.75 for each extra slave
