Hi, I've been searching all over the internet just to try and find if what I'm looking for exists. I am looking for a DVD player, more features the better(not sure if there is even any such thing as a smart DVD player like there are Blu Rays with wifi and all that), that has composite input. I don't know if they make them or not I guess if they do it would probably be a DVD recorder, but all of those I've seen also have VCR built in. I'm looking for something small. Blu Ray player would be fine too but I can't seem to find any with composite(or any type of input) jacks. Seems like that would be a nice feature to have for any device like that so you can just leave that one on all the time and use it and go to apps, DVD or BluRay or whatever else and just use that one remote. Kinda like Xboxs idea with the Xbox one with the HDMI input.
The reason I want this is because I want to mod an Atari flashback to be a DVD or BluRay player as well and hopefully have wifi and apps. What I want to do is be able to fit the boards in an atari flashback, with the DVD drive, dremel out a slot for the tray to come out of the front, and solder the composite output from the atari board into the composite input on the dvd player board, all in the case. i'll have to also drill a hole in front for IR detection. This will allow me to use this one device for most things, and just hit one button on the remote to switch to AV which would be atari. It was just an idea that popped in my head and thought it would be a fun project. I've repaired a couple sony blu ray players in the past and am pretty sure all of those parts would fit in with what is already in there, including the power supply. Only problem is I've yet to find anything other than a VCR that accepts composite input.
Nothing else I would like a just a streaming box or something that has A/V input so I can put it in the atari case and do the same I mentioned above just lack of having DVD or Bluray as an option but would still be nice.
Any help would be appreciated. If I attempt this mod I guess I'll try to do it with one of the newer flashbacks that have wireless joysticks that way I could do everything wirelessly.
EDIT: Another thing that would be nice is if the remote for the device has 4 big arrow buttons with an okay button or whatever in the middle. I've played around with IR before and an arduino so another thing I would try to do is check the signal coming from the remote with an IR detector and my oscope and then program the detection for those button presses and and tie arduino output it in to the controller ports as well so i could even use the DVD remote to play the games. Just need help finding a DVD player that would work.
