I don't care what you say, it's #gold and #white and not #blue and #black.

Sorry, wrong forum.

I finally bought a Raspberry Pi last week and it turns out that by poking a couple of registers you can shift the composite video output up into the VBI area. From there it's trivial to push teletext packets into a dispmanx overlay.

Here is a very quick proof of concept - PAL only:

How have you still got a TV capable of receiving teletext?  This is great fun though!

The new #KDE theme is really nice but the widget layout still sucks.

Hmm... well looks okay. I agree with your points. There are fundamentally more broken things in KDE still. As of last update any KDE app now takes about a minute to load. I can't even be arsed working out why any more.

I'm crashing your TV.
It's a bit more complicated than that - as with all matters pertaining to agreed broadcast standards, the demo is sending data in the correct format but in a way which you would be unlikely to see in 'normal' use, hence the code drives a truck load of edge cases through the various TV ...

I love physical media but unfortunately it's dying off. I loved the ls120 superdisk format. 120mb and backwards compatibility all the way to 720k floppies.
