Hey guys. I'm getting slightly frustrated with my mp3 project here and was wondering if you could help me out. I have the PC box mounted in the trunk and the LCD screen (out of a laptop) mounted in the passenger sun visor. Now I know there's people out there with this same style of setup, how did you get the two to interface??? I've looked everywhere for solutions to this and really haven't gotten very far.
I contacted Sage Inc. a while ago about their S550 video card with laptop screen output. Apparently, the cable that goes to the laptop screen can be a maximum of 12 to 18 inches before data loss occurs. I was instructed by them to sell the screen and try and find one that uses LVDS since a cord for that can reach 15 feet, no problem. Well, one problem with that, no one makes a cheap LVDS laptop screen.
So how do you guys do it? Is there something I'm missing here?
Thanks for the help!
