    PSOne input question: multi-AV or mini-jack?

    I want to hook my PSOne LCD upto my graphics card, but for the time being, I don't want to do a full VGA (actually DVI-I analog, probably) mod.

    In practice which input have people found easier to use? The mini-jack on the back, or the multi-AV on the front?

    For example:
    a) get a mini-jack to composite video cable (does such a cable for s-video exist?)?...then just use a composite out from the graphics card into the mini-jack?

    or

    b) get a multi-AV cable (I've never seen a female-ended multi-AV...do such exist?) and just use the composite from the graphics card?

    Thanks!

    If it is an official screen, do the vga hack: http://tidder.rudyatek.com/lcd/

    I have never seen av females or anything, and idk if that would work.

    composite or s-video would probably not be worth it, as the screen would be unreadble in most situations.

    Ps- why do u hesitate to do the vga hack?

    How good are the PSone's? I'm looking for an affordable screen now and a PSone screen seems pretty nice.

    I don't fully understand yet the csync problem, so I don't have a good solution in advance yet...shrug...we'll see.

    The official Sony "psone" screen is the same as the "Verge" and "Zenith" gamescreens (Samsung LTS500Q1-GF1). The only difference is that they're missing the "input board" found in the "psone" units. That shouldn't be a problem though since I found a nice wiring diagram at a french site which applies to all of these screens.

    Oh yeah, here a pic of my Zenith with rca inputs added to the side. You could just as easily add s-video, vga, or component.

    Hm.... these seem interesting. There not VGA, but there affordable enough... Can anyone give me some input on the quality too? Anything about using this as a main screen?

    Option A is the way to go, if you're using composite video, as the mult-AV jack uses composite video as the sync signal, and therefore probably wouldn't work. Hmm.. come to think of it, I've never tried doing it that way... I guess I'll experiment later, as I have a Composite+Stereo/Multi-AV cable. You can get a simple adapter to go from S-Video to composite, though you won't get the full quality of S-Video.

    Thanks for the replies...

    Now, does anyone know of a S-video to the mini-jack cable or connector?...
