it sounds like a silly idea, but it would probably inspire all sorts of crazy mods

Could you not use the original black figure 8 port and attach it to this board (or the correct volt/amp equivalent)? That way it wouldn't look modded but would still reap all the benefits.
dreamcast ™ wrote:@Roareye: No. The port you're referring to is for AC input. The new board runs entirely on DC, hence the use of the barrel-type connector for connecting external AC - DC "bricks" (Think laptops, etc. The conversion from AC to DC is done outside of the Dreamcast.). If you tried to use the AC connector purely for aesthetic reasons, it would be confusing and someone would likely mistakenly try to feed the DC board with AC voltage.
