Would the ability to list remotes and spare parts make sense?

It could be as simple as a "Part #" field and a "Description" field. If not, maybe a hardware/parts WTB/WTS/WTT forum? I have an absurd amount of parts.

Actually I've been working on this (not the shop part yet, that's the endgame).

I have a table of devices (loosely defined as "needs a power cable/source to operate normally" but there are exceptions like the expansion boards of the CLD-A100) where all connectivity details are kept.


I treat DACs separately because they are attached to the audio output.

We could imagine something similar with video processing chips (PAL, NTSC, MUSE, etc.).

I also have a table for parts that is, as of now, only brand/commercial ref/internal ref/description.

You can see it in this post: admin @ Hardware Database

Ex: Pioneer / CU-CLD130 / VXX2364/ Remote Control

Then I have a table for Device <-> Parts relationship/compatibility.
It can be 1 part compatible with N devices.
It can be 1 device compatible with N parts.
Or simply 1 part compatible with 1 device.

For CU-CLD130, it's 1 to 2 as it's listed as compatible with:

Pioneer CLD-K8V
Pioneer CLD-K99V

Here is a crude display of the current draft table, manually being moved from The REMOTE CONTROL definitive list:

We could imagine the same thing for belt, m-holder, etc.

As for LDs before, the logical steps are database -> edit/submit -> collection -> wishlist -> shop.

I'm at the collection step right now.


PS: but dev is halted for a little while because.... September 19th was "Talk like a Pirate Day" and the perfect timing to release another round of Guybrush Threepwood adventures!
