    I was thinking that I might use the smoke Plasti-Dip on a thin sheet of plexiglass to attach to the front. I was wondering if others thought that might work well or if I should look for another idea.


    Given that the Game Frame has a clock feature and the display is software dimable, it wouldn’t be too hard to change the code to dim the display between certain hours/at night..

    Jeremy – I assume the game frame has a Real Time Clock module built into it? If so, what module does it use (ie. DS1307, DS3231..)

    Jeremy Williams

    Yes, the RTC is a DS1307. You could modify the firmware so that brightness is controlled by the time of day.


    I’m planning on adding a photoresistor to control dimming instead of relying on a clock. Mostly because I want to add some component and not just write software 🙂
