Will there be a way to add, say, CD images to the SD card while the unit is running either via USB or even WLAN? Could be a little inconvenient if you're using the device as your primary HD and you have to shut everything down to pull the card and add new files.
Never thought about this use-case. Will add to my TODO list.

Would it be possible to use it as an IDE-XT (also known as: XT-IDE, XTA) hard drive? Those are becoming very difficult to obtain, and some systems like the PS/1 will only accept drives matching the exact parameters of the original drive.
I did some research on this topic and in theory it could be possible (maybe with some special firmware), but as far as I don't have either IDE-XT harddrive or controller it seems unlikely.
I know it's unrelated, but emulator was successfully tested with modern XT-IDE controller on Juko XT motherboard.
P.S. I have one spare fully assembled and tested Rev1 board available. [Seems that I can't send PM replies due to low post count]
If you want to try it on this early stage please PM me (Don't). Device is functional but could have bugs, glitches and issues.
For CD-Audio output PCM5102 DAC is needed.
