Hi,i wanted to build a Pandora Docking Station and here are the Results so far:

A Very Good Friend helped me to modify this:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Netbook-Notebook-Docking-Station-weis-mit-DVD-Multi-Brenner-/271214857318?pt=DE_Computing_Notebook_Dockingstationen&hash=item3f25aa4c66

In Front:



Right Side:



Translation:

DVB-T Stick builded in,

160GB Harddisk USB 2.0 what can also used on PCs for PNDs & Games

2 Free Active USB Ports for Sticks

Cable to the first Build in Hub

from the left Side:



Translation:

Kabelfernsehen is a Cable TV USB Stick with SVHS(Svideo) input too

2 Build in USB Soundcards for connecting a Headset while Connected to a Receiver or Stereo System

DVD-RW Writer(maybe i build in a SLOT IN Writer next Time)

And green Pandora Holders for a optimal position.

Pandora will be Energy loaded over USB OTG Port.

Wlan Antenna from Wlan Stick(maybe i can screw a bigger Antenna in it :)

What is unfinished now?

These are on my Todo List in Future :)

-a thirt USB Hub is needed internal,

- the Retrode2 will be build on this to add 2 Joypad Ports

and then i be able to play Snes,Genesis,Gameboy,Gameboy Color,Gameboy Advance directly from Cartridges

- the Neo SMS 4 Backups Stick will be added to use Nintendo DS Cartridges

- the soon released TV Out Cable from ED(because the Cable is Female) will build in

- a nicer Colour(i think silver with a big Pandora Logo)

but thats in the Future :)

Have anyone Build so a Thing too?

Post your Results here too :)

Looks good.

Some questions.

Why only 2 USB-ports (I'd use 4)

Why no TV-Out? You have the retrode and want to play with controllers.

i wrote its unfinished yet ;)
A thirt USB Hub will be build in for that and i wait for
EDs TV Out Cable because i must see where i can go out with this Cable.
The Retrodeand all the other Things will be build on in near Future :)

Coloring it the last Step with a Big Pandora Logo.
Now(when its Finished) when i use a Keyboard and Mouse is the Pandora a Complete ARM PC and
when i Put them out can i use the Pandora for playing on TV all Cartridges i have and Playstation directly from CD Rom ;)

Edit:
I found out too how to use with Qemu on Pandora a real Cdrom :)
Then can the Pandora Changed in a Pentium PC too :)

That's a really nice dock.

If I had more time I would have made one as well.

My Idea was just to make a cube and pot some wholes into it.

Inside the cube I'd put all the cables and stuff I need.

It should have USB, TV-out and charger.

I wouldn't have built a sound card and DVB-T stuff inside (simply because I never used it and don't know how to).

I also wouldn't have used a Hard-Disk. My Pandora has 256GB inside. If you want to share Data with your PC it's a nice idea I wouldn't have thought to.

The green Pandora holders are from Infinity.
Maybe he give you the CAD File and you can Print it on every 3D Printer :)

Don't take it personally, but that golden color is awful  :wacko:

The "docking station", on the other side, is really nice!
