Audio Ports -> 4-Wire Cable, not yet connected to the notebook
Two Joystick Ports -> U-HID Encoders, both currently running as "Mouse"
4-port usb hub connected to the notebooks 3rd port
both U-HIDs connected to the hub
1 A500 Keyboard modified to work with a A1200 keyrah

"Damages" to the Amiga 500 case...
Had to drill a small hole in the back for the notebooks power supply
- shorten usb wires to the U-HIDs (currently 75cm)
- connect the serial and parallel port to their respective usb converts (and those to the hubs with trimmed cables)
FIX that damn DVD-ROM somewhere in place... ^^
connect the front AND surround line-outs to the RCA jacks in the back, need some resistors first.
connect a small Speaker to the center line-out, build a small audio amp around a tda 7052 ic and finally fix the speaker in the floppy area.
Front L & Surround L to L Audio
Front R & Surround R to R Audio
Center to Floppy-Speaker
