    New guy!

    Hey all,

    Firstly would like to say, awesome forum. I've been a silent voyeur of the forums for quite some time now.

    Here's my setup for my intended build.

    -Hardware-
    IBM Thiinkpad T22
    USB2 PCMCIA Card
    DLink Wireless PCMCIA Card
    USB Bluetooth adapter
    Voyager-Systems 5.6" Screen

    -Software-
    A Tiny version of Win XP
    RoadRunner front-end

    I'm a techy at heart and love to get my hands dirty and burnt with a soldering iron.

    Yeah Spec of my T22 is:

    Intel Mobile Pentium III 900 MHz
    S3 Savage IX8+ video controller with 8MB
    14.1" TFT display with 1024x768 resolution
    256 MB PC-100 memory
    20GB 2.5" HDD
    CS4624B/CS4297A Audio controller
    Intel PRO/100 SP Mobile Combo Adapter
    2x Type II CardBus slots or (1) type III

    I currently have 2 problems with it so my plan is to fix those first.

    1. Batteries do not charge. I've tried 2 different batteries and 2 different ac adapters but no joy.
    2. I cant get the S-video to output to the Voyager screen which has an AV 3.5mm jack input.

    My overall objective is to have something that is all in one.
    - Music
    - Movies
    - TV
    - Internet
    - Email
    - GPS
    - Mobile Phone control (Making, recieving calls, reading, writing txt msgs etc)

    No, its an old screen from an in car vhs player. I havent looked at the actual PCB yet to see if it will accept RGB inputs though.

    It might run a little slow with such a small amount of memory...
    All of the use's you are aiming for will be big on mem usage.

    But I am sure you'll get the bug like many on here and quickly start upgrading :-)

    Quality of the screen will also suffer a lot but to each his own!

    Memory will be an issue. The max the laptop can manager is 512mb which should be enough. I wont be running all the services at the same time. Mobile services will be running continuously. Other than that, no more than 2 others will run at the same time. For example; Mobile+Music+GPS or Mobile+Web+Music etc.

    Anyone know how to successfully output S-video signal to an AV 3.5mm jack on a 5.6" screen? Video is NOT my strong point.
