So far we have achieved datamoshing and other real-time visual effects via three methods: (1) circuit bending on the 5-pin antenna input strip; (2) vibrations on the TV tuner crystal; and (3) terminal commands.
We started out working with three different models of digital-to-analog converter boxes, but the Digital Stream #DTX9950 proved to be the most “hackable.”

Some initial thoughts on spectatorial reception
Circuit-bending on the antenna strips.
Video test example of hardware datamoshing the live signal via circuit-bending – in this case, we datamosh Bob Ross.
We test the effects of various resistors on the 5-pin antenna input strip and the 11-pin antenna output strip.
Eric explains the stereoscope effect achieved by hacking the TV tuners’ OS.
Jason starts soldering so we can further test the 5-pin antenna input strip and the 11-pin antenna output strip.
