YBox2 DIY networked set-top box keeps the dream alive

The YBox was pretty much destined to become a hit with the DIY crowd just as soon as it was handed 15 spectacular minutes at last summer's Maker Faire. For those who reckoned the project would fade into the sunset as quickly as it arrived, we've got news proving your assumptions wrong... dead wrong. YBox2 has at long last arrived to the party, ready to serve up widgets and all sorts of pertinent information on your television screen. The new kit boasts an 80MHz Parallax Propeller chip and functions with any NTSC / PAL TV and any DHCP-compatible router -- and yes, it still all fits within a flashy Altoids tin. Score!
