V1VD on eBay

eBay Listing

After getting all the units out for the pilot, I have ended up with two left.

I have decided that I am going to make one available on eBay, with a low starting price of $50 and no reserve. You have got a week to bid on it.

The second unit I am going to pick randomly from the requests that I have received, along with any new ones that I get this week. Please send an email to dolphin at ExitZer0 dot com to let me know if you are interested in getting the second one. This one will be $80, shipped to the continental US.

I can do another order with as few as 25 people willing to buy one, so send me an email if you would like to get in on the next buy.

Minor install fix v0.9.3.1

I think I have finally tracked down all the missing files (I know, I just jinxed myself) and this package should have all the need files.

V1VD v0.9.3

V1 Virtual Display v0.9.3

There were two different issues relating to a missing driver dll, FTDI2XX.dll. The first one caused a problem installing the driver. The second was causing a problem with the actual running of the application. The package has been updated, and the inf files have been corrected, and both issues appear to be cleared up.

First Batch Shipped

I just got back from the post office, and all the units (except for one I am waiting for an email on) have been shipped. People should start getting the units this week.

I am looking forward to see what people have to say.

V1VD v1.0

I have just finished building and testing the first unit, and it looks like it is a success. Until I had all the pieces assembled, I was worried that the fit was going to be off, but that didn't turn out to be a problem.

I don't know how many I will be able to build this weekend, but I will start shipping them out on Monday.

Stay tuned!

...and tracking....

Apparently the rest of the supplies are stuck in customs in Alaska due to some missing paperwork and a delay in getting a response from the shipper. I called FedEx and it should be continuing on its journey from Anchorage today, hopefully by Friday.

Tracking Circuit Boards

I just received the tracking info for the last of the parts (and the most important, the circuit boards). The company that is producing them is pretty cheap for small orders, but I guess they make up for it in their turnaround time. I should be getting all the boards on Monday. I will be testing everything out, then hopefully start sending out the units next week. I will be shipping out the assembled units in the order i received payment, and I will be building them by hand, so it may take a few days to get them all out.

I am excited to see some other people using the V1 Virtual Display Soon!
