BMW TFT Sharp LQ065T9BR52 - how to connect?
Hi out there,
thanks for the help on the first topic regarding my BMW setup.
Now, yesterday I disassembled the whole unit (horrible!) because I want to complete the carputer a. s. a. p. now.
What I found (and I REALLY need your help now!) is that the 16:9 wide screen that Alpine uses as manufacturer of the whole HiFi unit is a Sharp LQ065T9BR52, resolution 400xRGBx240 (234).
Now, I didn't find exactly this, but I found the Sharp LQ065T9BR51 which seems to be the same thing (only different viewing angle).
You find the datasheet at http://www.sharpsma.com/eprise/main/...q065t9br51.pdf
what is the best way to hook this screen to the computer?
thanks in advance
okay, no reply...
to be honest, I didn't think that somebody could help - but now you can, I believe ;-))
Allright, now I got all information together:
The screen is a Sharp LQ065T9BR52, resolution 400xRGBx240 (234 for NTSC).
The input from the video module is RGB, with sync-on-green. I've built a circuit which takes the standard signal of a vga card and adds the H-sync and V-sync signals to green. So I can connect a standard vga card of my carputer to the screen now.
Unfortunately, the screen only accepts the right signal @ 60Hz.
I've got all the stuff together and prebuilt, the player works fine and is integrated in the original system as I wanted it (I can reverse it in minutes, which I will have to do because it's a leased car).
The only questions that's left to complete my setup is:
which vga card is capable to output 400 x 240 @60Hz?
Should run under windows if possible, but if it only works with Linux I'll do that too.
XFree86 will allow you to do that with a little bit of modeline tweaking, this with most _good_ video cards (matrox comes to mind)
