View Full Version : using a portable dvd player for the fmc

Hi all,

I am planning on building my FMC with a screen either from a PSONE (there are some mods for using it with vga) or from an old portable DVD player I have - I found a mod that seems to be quite interesting: http://www.overclock.net/t/355286/how-to-make-a-case-screen-from-a-portable-dvd-player has anybody done this before? I am curious if it would work because the screen in the portable dvd player is 9" and I think the screen in the FMC is only 5" - should I get a different screen or do you think it is possible to fit into the FMC - I thought about using opencockpits FMC kit

if I could suggest a better way ans less work also buy a touch screen and add software for real FMC

Here is a good place for touch screens http://www.short-circuit.com/ and there are software out there

i only need a screen with a vga connection to display the prosim 737 fmc on the screen - only what is actually displayed in the screen of the fmc - it will be a real hardware fmc!
