use of lc pds in ppc performa?

was wondering if its only good for an ethernet card all alone or is there possible some other (even rare too) use for this slot?

LC PDS

Hey,

Not that I can find or remember. You can put a TV card in the 6x00 and use it as a TV and if you connect a VCR that will act as a TV tuner to change channels and play VHS movies. But ... the TV card will cover the LC PDS slot and a LC PDS will cover the slot for the TV card so you can't do both. There's also a comm slot for a modem.

you can throw an Ethernet in it too IIRC. At least, i could do that on the LC 630 Dos that I had.

LC PDS slot

There was all sorts of stuff made for the LC PDS slot. Everything from video cards and audio/MIDI cards, to Ethernet cards, to processor upgrades. The Comm. Slot, as far as I know, could only use an internal modem or ethernet card.
