'[TECH] Beagle Board'
Just saw this on the Digikey front page:
Able to do 720p decoding with the DSP + mplayer patches
It seems like it's a very community oriented website, on their
hardware accessories page, they list Digikey and Sparkfun as possible
vendors. But they also allow people to tag pages through the
del.icio.us website: delicious.com/tag/beagleboard+peripheral
Yeah, saw that too. Looks very slick, although I'm mystified as to why
they put so much effort into providing good multimedia capabilities
and failed to put an ethernet interface on there.
It could make a great SOHO Asterisk box if you stored voicemail on a
network mounted volume.

Well, they built out most of the functions of the OMAP processor, and
the processor doesn't include an ethernet MAC.
I imagine they also wanted to avoid adding cost (or increasing board
size) where it might not be used, since the USB is high speed
(480mbps) and already supports ethernet, wifi, and bluetooth modules
out of the box.
Still, I know one of the reasons so many linux boards have ethernet
onboard is that it's the fastest way to upload linux and a disk image
- right now the board doesn't support USB bootloading, so you're stuck
with serial (ugh!), JTAG (still not very fast), or using a memory card
(They brought back the venerable sneakernet!).

According to the manual, the USB host port has been removed because it
didn't work right.
I guess you could use TCP over a Linux "gadget" USB device connection.
It's only moderately painful.

There were two USB ports, one host only, and one high speed on the go.
You can still connect USB hubs and devices to the OTG USB port in
host mode, and the wiki seems to indicate that several ethernet and
wireless adaptors work with the current linux builds.

Yeah, it just seems so clunky to have to add a dongle, and have the OS
overhead of another protocol stack in he way.
