    As long as the passthrough has all twelve pins then you can solder the correct connections on.

    My Joytech 7" screen proudly boasts on the box about rgb or DVD input switchable.

    Would this mod work with an older video card (ie. 2D PCI card with a S3 chipset (the ones pre-Voodoo + 3D etc.)

    For example, a Diamond Stealth64 or a SpeedStar ?

    Best thing to do would be install the card, and then download the Powerstrip demo/shareware.

    Then see if it offers the arcade (640x48i) setting for your card.

    if it does, the card should work OK, you just need to find the pin outs for the Video of your screen, if different to those that M pro used. Currently I'm sticking with TVout, but will explore the VGA/RGB conversion again later.

    MPro,
    good write up on your website

    I noticed that you got your screen for 35. Care to shed some light on the source as they are a lot more than that normally.

    Think itd be possible to use a bios editor to edit the video card's bios, so that it would work at 15khz from the bootup..? Using powerstrip doesn't seem like a very good solution.. =\

    rite on

    I've been telling people that I've found a site(www.radeon2.ru in the vivo forum)that claims this is possible with radeon cards,but the site is in russian,and I cant find a translator that can properly male sense of the characters.Anybody know Russian?p.p. I've already emailed ati and they say no,but from what I have been able to translate,it seems to be working for these guys(some of them anyways =)

    also I forgot to mention that the signal apparently comes from the 7 pin tv out(after u edit the bios to enable unnsupported tv out formats)so u wouldnt actually have to change vga card settings at all.u are just switching the signal to scart rgb.I think its worth it to try translating it,but as I said I need some help
