    LVDS Receiver

    So I've been thinking about how to get around the lack of VGA inputs on many of these displays. (motorized in-dash, specifically)

    How about using a VIA based mb (Epox?) w/ LVDS outputs, fed through a 2-12m LVDS cable to a receiver, and then straight to the LCD bypassing the silly NTSC inputs. Looks like you'd have the best quality and be able to place your computer a good distance away under a seat or in a trunk.

    What available motherboards have LVDS outputs?

    Here's one receiver I found, but there seemed to be several options.

    Thats interesting, But how do you install the board to the lcd and computer? It doesn't have any instructions. Nor does it have any ordering info.

    Well, you hook up the LCD just like you would to any LCD controller. Many of these boards have TFT LCD controllers from a VIA chipset or C&T video chip.

    The LVDS just allows you to move the TTL LCD outputs farther away from the motherboard... as normally they have to be very close and shielded due to the high clock frequencies.

    I just remembered I have some old LCD panels in the garage, so maybe one of them will work for some experimenting... Now I just need to find a cheap VIA mb w/ LCD and LVDS out.

    If I can get the LCD up and running, the LVDS extension shouldn't be too much different.
