Yeah I guess we could, but Clay already has AVCore produced using PB0, so it will have to stay like this unfortunately . Anyway, although it will complexity the kernel a bit, I can achieve pretty much the same thing in software.
D'oh... Yeah, I'm basically locked in at this point-- Parts, PCB's, solderpaste screens, etc. are in and boards are being stuffed and reflowed as we speak...
I suppose if we really needed the cycles I could put a zero-ohm jumper option on the baseboards to connect CSYNC(PB0) to PD4 or PD5. (I did bring out the CSYNC line on the AVCore header pins for use on alternate video output methods.)
I kinda like having the module work stand-alone without tweaking though, so I'd say we stick with PB0 for now. Not like anyone is running out of cycles per frame yet... Then like Alec said we add it to the Uzebox2 list-- along with my goofy DAC fantasies and that optional MOSI->DAC connection for high bitrate pixel twiddling.
