  • Some help to set me off in the right direction

    Hello everyone, I have a Sharp screen model 3L-U8E. I've done some research on it and have found out:

    Input Signal System is: NTSC
    Signal Interface is: Composite/Standard analog RGB

    I found a site listing pinouts for the flat cable coming out of the screen wich I do have.

    Main question is, How do I go about connecting this to my computer, do I need an interface card? With a card will I be able to hook it up to the vga port on the computer, or will it be an rca type connection?

    I'm trying to learn this screen stuff, but I can't find any good resourses to explain all this stuff to me, I just have to piece stuff togeather.

    Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

      will it be an rca type connection
      Composite is an RCA type connector, and will be the easiest to get out of your computer. You can get an S-Video to composite adapter for around $7 shipped off Ebay (or $20 at Radio Shack, plus another $10 cable).

      With a card will I be able to hook it up to the vga port on the computer
      This is harder, since it won't take normal VGA, but is still doable. Take a look at the Playstation/PSOne threads for more info, as they take the same as your display (at least the NTSC ones, PAL ones seem to be different for some reason).
