Connecting a Fujitsu SS-170A to Asterisk

November 15, 2018 8:56 pm Leave your thoughts

For those looking for it, saving you some time: the default NW-Password (NWパスワード) for the SS-170A is: 999999

The Fujitsu SS-170A, while is a darn good looking IP phone, seems to have been designed for some kind of a satellite or trunk phone system. Other than that, I can’t really explain why, when you pick up the receiver, this happens:

< --- SIP read from UDP::5060 --->
MESSAGE sip:[email protected]:5060;user=phone SIP/2.0
Via: SIP/2.0/UDP :5060;branch=z9hG4bK2621781087c1096064fa949

and it starts to do long beeps, meaning there is no phone line to call, and stops responding to any input.

Now I can write posts and surf the web with ease, too :-)

For those interested, here are the components I used:

  • Table: SANWA Supply DESKH021 (Amazon)
  • Chair: G-AIR 65090108 (Amazon)
  • Monitor: LG 34UM59-P (Amazon)

And the following are behind the scenes, but they work really well for me and I can recommend them without any doubt:

  • USB Hub: TopLonger USB3.0 Hub (Amazon)

  • Headphones: AKG K240 Studio (Amazon)

Goodbye, Ufa; Hello, Sapporo!

October 28, 2018 7:34 pm Leave your thoughts

So, I have finally arrived to Sapporo and spent my first weekend in here. It was so filled with this and that and whatnot, so I had to defer this post every single evening until right now.

Now I wonder how I could actually survive so many transits in a row in the first place.

Moving to Japan — Part 1: My mistakes, and preparing to move

October 15, 2018 3:29 pm Leave your thoughts Japanese CoE

So, as you may know from the previous post, I am about to move to Sapporo to work with a company called AD-Interactive in software development.

It all started this year while I was finishing my bachelor’s degree, I thought — why not try to get a job somewhere in a different country, though that was mostly impulse and just for fun. I went with Japanese companies because I haven’t been to any other countries, at least not to any that impressed me as much as Japan.

And despite it being just for fun, in the end I actually passed the interview and got a job in ADi.

Here is the news

October 6, 2018 1:17 am Leave your thoughts

Hey guys, I’m still here and not dead just yet! :-)

It’s been a crazy amount of time since my last post on this blog, in fact, the whole Genjitsu Labs website has been under construction for all that time.
But, you know, it seems like done to me. It’s become a central hub of links to various web profiles of mine, so why bother extending it any further? It also hosts my projects just fine, so it’s doing everything it should.

Things have been going on like hell in here.
During all this time I’ve acquired a lot of new interesting vintage hardware, learned to code for the ZX Spectrum in assembly (wanted to do that since a looooong time ago!).
Went many places, as far as Nishinomiya, the town where the Suzumiya Haruhi anime was filmed if I may say so, or Tomsk, which showed me that Siberia isn’t really as cold as they say.
Moved in to my very own home, just to get ready to move to Sapporo for at least a year, but who knows.
Met new people with amazing ideas, and done a lot of interesting things.

In the light of the fact that I won’t be able to take much of my equipment with me, I want to resurrect this blog for the time being.
So, should I write about the things to come, or the things that were? Tell me in the comments if you’d be interested in something in particular :-)
And stay tuned on other media as well, as those are still much more updated…

Digitally Reimported: listening to in your audio player

May 6, 2016 11:07 am Leave your thoughts

If you’re like me, you probably know the service Digitally Imported and likely you were much disappointed due to the fact that they’ve cut off any means for us to listen to the streams in a more convenient player like RadioApp and such.

However after some fiddling it turned out that the protection is next to nothing. Since circumventing it would not eliminate the ads, neither boost the quality (not implying you don’t deserve more — just the way it works :) ), I thought, why not give it a try and make my hardware radio tuner be able to play DI again?

Workaround for Conexant Fusion 878A on modern systems

March 14, 2016 8:22 pm

Usually I used my mom’s laptop with PCMCIA and an AverMedia Hybrid TV+FM Cardbus tuner to digitize all my VHS camera recordings.
However that got annoying quite soon, so I got my VCR back into my rack, added a SCART-6xRCA cable, and found the AverMedia Capture98 PCI card I’ve had lying around because a fake chinese EasyCap was giving bullshit image and colors :)

However the 2001-dated drivers obviously refused to run on Windows 8.1 64-bit.
The solution is what you see above — yes, DScaler 4!
It supports working with the Conexant chipset directly without the drivers and produces a nice image. I have also installed an x264 encoder to get smaller files (like, 250 MB per 15 minutes average, and I bet the majority of it is uncompressed sound :) ).

The video below was digitized as a test from my SLV-E720 from some weird tape that definitely could do well as a shopping-mall-vaporwave video clip :)

Compare the vivid-colored smooth image to a test of a Fushicai Easycap 007 with it’s almost nonexistent colors and jittering frames, and you’ll see why I didn’t wanna go with modern single-chip solutions at all :)
