    Futurlec is an excellent place to buy things from if you need the parts a month from now. With digikey I get next day shipping, hard to go back.

    I bought a SD card from DipMicro and I thought it came with a holder. Will have to check.

    i actually need/want the SD stuff for storing icons since i will be using 12bit mode a image of 132x132 (max 131x131) would take up so much space:

    132 * 132 = 17424
    Now since each pixel is 12bits ... thats 1.5 bytes for pixel. so if i take

    12 bits(1 pixel) * 17424 pixels = 209088 bits

    209,088 bits = 26,136 bytes

    26,136 bytes = 25.5234375 kilobytes

    That's a huge amount of space needed for 1 image, compared to PIC space of course.

    so about 25KB per image which is nothing for SD heh if i use the max (2gb) card then i can store:

    2GB = 2,097,152 Kilobytes / 25KB images = 83,886 full sized images heh lots of space :D but compared to a cheap (inexpensive) pic 18F4620 heh ...

    Also at least i can update the pictures overtime without having to reprogram the remote i can just pull sd and photoshop some pictures.. Even themes :D

    I own that one heh but it's a push pull I like push push heh. And it's no fun if I didn't make it from scratch. In about a month I'll make a demo/prototype with dip and through hole parts and when ready I'll make a smd board since it's a remote( my final outcome) I want it small as possible heh
