Re: A HUGE WATSE of bandwidth!!
After you find it, it would probably be worthwhile to provide a bit more information after a person clicks on "start a blog". While I usually have enough time I don't always have enough time to drive a blog of my own.

@WKetel - It is like writing on a wall. I'll go find it and comment more.

Re: Drop the Set Top Box
Brad,

My philips TV is a great device for viewing TV channels but is a pathetic device when it comes to even simple browsing. It is very slow and takes ages to open a web page. Remote pairing with my android works well but selecting and viewing youtube videos is a pain.

Re: A HUGE WATSE of bandwidth!!
As a matter of fact I DID start another discussion. At least I think that I did. I clicked on the "start a board" option and posted a more complete version of that comment. I don't know what happens next. Where or how others see it. Don't know. Is it like writing on the wall?

@WKetel - yep, a different discussion - but a good and worthwhile one.

Re: Drop the Set Top Box
@WKetel - you wouldn't think it would need much power just to keep its memory alive and remember all of its settings. But I bet it does use a bunch. I should check.

Re: A HUGE WATSE of bandwidth!!
With my previous television, which had a CRT, the cable box was always ready about the same time that the set was.  And our present set, a recent medium LED flatscreen model has to go through it's own boot up procedure each time that it is switched on, and that is from standby, not off. So it would not be  much of a change.

And anybody who has such a short attention span that they can't deal with that gets no sympathy at all from me. They can pay an extra monyjly surcharge for energy wasting appliances.

Actually, now that we have smart meters that can detect and report the draw moment by moment it should be a straightforward process to completely revise the utility rate structure. A higher rate for those loads that never switch off comes to mind. But that would be a subject for a different discussion, wouldn't it.

Re: Drop the Set Top Box
BAlbing, Thanks for the offer of some useful information when you can get it. That would be quite interesting.

But here is a question about your wondeful new television: how much power does it consume when it is "off"? Either an ammeter, a wattmeter, or some pther method just to see how "off" that off setting really is.

An interesting project would be to take one of those old-technology outside wattmeters and wire it up with a cord and an outlet and use it to momitor the power consumption of single devices. I did that with a surplus unit a few years ago and it was educational.

Re: A HUGE WATSE of bandwidth!!
@WKetel - yep - there is that convenience factor. You don't have instant access; you have to go to that power switch and turn it on and wait for it to go thru its POST and handshake sequence....

Re: Re : Let's Put a Set-Top Box on a Chip
@yalanand - I recommend that you blog about it. Email me an outline or a summary and I'll provide the soapbox for you.

A battery management system (BMS), in addition to many other functions, has to closely monitor voltage, current, and the temperature of battery cells and packs. Temperature measurement is important in preserving the operational characteristics of both the cells and the BMS itself, as well as optimizing the state of health (SOH) by preventing degradation.
