The assemblies are finished and are on their way to Austin so it should only be a couple of days (hopefully) to get them checked out and programmed. Once we are sure the assemblies are fine, we'll turn on the store. The best way to find out when we start is the opt-in mailing list at http://www.ps3toothfairy.com/listsignup.php
. I'll post some other places as well.
If you haven't visited the site, it has been heavily updated with the user manual
, some more pictures, and so on. The most value is the manual since it has all the configuration options listed, including how the discrete off works, using the wired IR, power tracking, and how to pair. What isn't up there is the assembly instructions for the kit form, but the picture makes it kind of obvious how it works.
(1) take apart the remote; take the module out
(2) place it on the template and snip the little pins on the module
(3) bend the pins downward
(4) insert them into the machine sockets on the ps3toothfairy board (it is #3 in the picture)
(5) plug in the FFC cable on the side
(6) screw it back together
Regarding the machine pins, some people have asked if they make good contact, and the answer is yes. Within each of those tiny sockets there are 4 independent "fingers" that contact the pins. They are called "machine" since that socket is 2 parts. There is the barrel that is attached to the board and the "fingers" are on another insert that is then placed into the barrel.
Again, thanks for your interest!
