Thanks for the tip, their prices look good, but the feature set is lacking 
for some things I need. I was hoping to find an integrated DSP is possible. 
The TI arm 925T with OMAP 5910 has DSP, 802.11b, and Bluetooth, all of which 
would be nice.

Axis does have a Bluetooth board and an Access Point for it, but that doesn't 
have any DSP or 802.11b.

I need to keep looking. Axis did have a MIPS board, and I've heard that some 
of the MIPS chips did have DSPs in them, I think that is why TiVo changed 
over to MIPS, as compression is often included in the DSPs.
