    Post What do I need to make this LCD work with composite video?

    this is an ebay listing for around $20.

    They mention that you need a converions board to make it work. Doesn't this LCD work with composite video?

    Your insight is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I took a look at the specs for ya and it does work with composite video. Using pins A11 and A12 (GND) for the composite video input and set pin A19 to low (GND) or leave it open. This is outlined on page 10 of the datasheet on EarthLCD's site.

    What the conversion board brings to the table is:
    - a flex cable to connect the board to the screen.
    - power supply regulators and pots to adjust tint, colour, brightness and contrast.
    - a 9VDC adapter to convert 110VAC to 9VDC.
    - an RCA jack for composite video input.

    There is a whole circuit diagram here of the conversion board.

    If you want to hook this to your car you can probably build a 12VDC to 9VDC regulator circuit (they're not hard).

    Hope this helps.

    Nice screen, awsome price If your handy with a soldering iron, you don't need to buy a converter board

    I may just buy another...
