When oh when will the Original Hog3 have this ability?
I had some suggestions for the iPC but that's a done deal and this case should be easier. I like the accessories case on top. I would make sure that fits a keyboard, mouse, discs and manual as well as rooom for a USB CD-RW. The USB CD-Drive will be huge. First, as many have stated here, thumb drives have some reliability issues. Second, if you are transfering from Hog III you will need a CD-RW as it doesn't support thumb drives so there is a compatibility issue there. Right now no way to get shows from Hog III to Road Hog.
I'm sure that we will be selling the Flying Pig Systems 1GB USB memory sticks as a spare part, and I doubt they will be horribly expensive. If you play your cards right and come visit me at the office or a trade show, I might even just give you one as swag.

Because of the lack of MIDI, there isn't a great backup solution for this console. Keep in mind that this is targeted at small shows and installations.
If you're interested, check out the Upstaging DDL. It was originally designed for the Hog II. It has the ability to caputre 16 different looks across 4 universes of DMX, as well as an A/B switch between consoles.

For now, just remember that the Road Hog is targeted to smaller productions and that if you need MIDI you can certainly use either the Wholehog 3 console or Hog iPC.
