    Yeah, and that's a fairly common hack on the web with the older Sharp LCD's, but interesting to know that you can do it with a TNT card which are faily good cards and cheap as chips.

    This has been done before...

    I have not done this with my gamevue yet but I will do it tonight and give you all a report on image quality gains...

    Hmm, the update on the bottom of that page might be the answer to M pro's washedout problem?

    Sorry about disappearing on you guys but I havenít forgotten about you

    Just been hella busy of late but Iíll have it all planed out for you guys soon

    Also just to let you guys know the matrox cards do a good job also with this mod

    As you can see in this pic I have managed to get the colors bright




    Really all you guys are going to need for this mod is this LCD screen and a 270r resister
    And an old VGA cable

    Back soon

    Hey M pro, you thought about making a plug and play adaptor cable/box from VGA to the PSone/2 RGB 480i connector?

    I've read somewhere that the pins are the same, but without the console part of the connector I wouldn't know where to find one (don't have any consoles that are broken to cut up).

    Don't suppose anyone else has made any progress on this?

    As far as getting the connector, the adaptor for Guncon for later PSXs has it, just cut off the end that goes into the PSX. (it has a pass-through port)

    If you're looking for the pinout of PSX RGB, Games X has it.


    Still waiting to hear how M Pro managed to get the card to output 15kHz...

    Oh you beauty. I think you just cracked it, the guncon was a great idea, but it gave me a little lateral thought.

    The screen has a pass through connector where it is supposed to pass audio/video to the screen from the PS2, and another connector out back that connects to a PS2 AV to composite cable to run it through a TV.

    Now if I remove the pass through, I should have a connector that will plug into the other connector, and have prewired soldered cables.

    My god. So simple, why didn't I think of it.
