  • Another PSone thread : NTSC sum up info

    Ok. I have sum up all the info I can find on modding my Sont made Psone lcd screen to accept vga signal.

    I have an American ( NTSC ) screen.

    First what I need is :

    Old vga cable
    Multi AV passthrough cable ( for no soldering hacking )
    A ligther car adpater for the screen ( one that takes 127.5v )
    Male Molex connector , to wire the lighter car adpater to accept 12v from psu and give 7.5v to LCD)
    Pci video card that support Csync ( Such as a Matrox G200 PCI )
    Powerstrip v.3.xx

    Now the wiring ( thanks to Serio and Starfox ) :

    PSX Pin 5 - Composite Sync - Wired to CSync on VGA (Pin 13)
    PSX Pin 8 - Common Ground - Wired to Red/Green/Blue Ground on VGA (Pin 6-7-8)
    PSX Pin 9 - PSX Blue - Wired to Blue on VGA (Pin 3)
    PSX Pin 10 - +5V - Wired to DCC on VGA (Pin 9) - Needs to be connected, else the LCD doesn't power up.
    PSX Pin 11 - PSX Red - Wired to Red on VGA (Pin 1)
    PSX Pin 12 - PSX Green - Wired to Green on VGA (Pin 2)
    PSX Pin 8 VGA (Pin 11-4)

    Tie pins 11 and 4 to ground as well, to ensure your video card detects that a display device is there

    This works if your video card can output CSync on pin 13 (13 is also HSync if it outputs seperate HSync / VSync).

    Now to the Powerstrip setting : ( thanks tro MrPro )

    The default 640x480i (Arcade) resolution

    Pixel Clock 12.696
    Composite Sync Checked
    Sync on Green Unchecked
    Interlaced Checked

    Only Real-time adjustment checked under Options

    Back porch 64 pixels 5.041us
    Total 800 pixels 63.012us

    For Vertical Geometry

    Back porch 30 lines 1.890ms
