    Unhappy Alternatives to PSONE LCD

    HI Guys am putting together a buy list of bits to make a GPS unit based on Reality XP Software.and My Hagstrome KE72 Encoder Card.i did have at one time a PSONE 5" LCD but stripped it dowm to make a Projector.and so removed the backlight. D'oh now kicking myself as for the price i could have gotten 2 so been looking around E-bay and at the moment it seems to me that the price has trippled to 75 ish inc postage ( Ouch ) anyways the question is can i use any 5 - 8" lcd/TV monitor that has an AV input to be driven by a Cheap PCI card running alongside my 8800GT 512Mb graphics card or does anyone know of a UK source for these PSone LCD's Cheers

    Hi,
    If your VGA card has SVideo output or any video outputs (special connector
    like ASUS has) apart from the VGA\DVI output and the LCD TV had AV in,
    it should work with no problem.
    I have a friend with a F16 pit with 3 7" CAR LCD TVs with AV in.

    Cheers,
    Ran.

    I suppose it depends on your view of a sensible price. Rather than pay Opencockpits 85 euros for one new screen, in the last few days I have won on Ebay 2 secondhand screens complete with console etc (which can be sold off separately) for a total of 72 plus postage. Keep trying and good luck

    Regards

    Hi

    Hope we haven`t been competing Mind you, what I did not say was that some weeks ago I won one auction for two consoles, but did not realise that the screen was not an integral part!! Anyone want some consoles?

    Regards

    Dave,

    If you still need a screen, let me know. I have one that I modded. I didn't end up using it because I couldn't get it to sync well enough with my NVidia cards.

    I'd be happy to send it on to you for the cost of shipping. Unfortunately, I won't be home until about the end of May, so you would need to wait until then.

    Either way, let me know

    Warren

    A very kind offer indeed. I think Wannabeflyer has the first call, but if it is ok with him, I would love to have the screen for either the overhead voltage or clock displays. If Wannabeflyer is still trying to get a screen, then he should have first preference, he should presumably get notice of these additions to the thread.

    If he does not now need the screen, then the end of May is fine - actually, I am in the USA then for the Indy 500!

    Regards

    David

    fordgt40,

    You bet...

    Sorry wannabeaflyer, I thought you had hooked up with a screen. Of course the offer is extended to you also. How's your project going? My wife called a few days ago and told me the front panel had arrived and that it looks good. Less than a month and I can get home and finish up my GPS! I'll update the original post with pics then.
