    If you figure this out, PLEASE post a solution. It's a digital TFT-specific LCD display, I believe made by Panasonic. The signals are R, G, B and Sync. But it is a specific digital protocol. I made an adapter board to convert the digital RGB to VGA, however, I failed. There used to be something out on the market -- keep searching. And I will post here, also, if I find one.

    If you do find clean, non-self-hack solution, it's a golden bullet, because it's the same interface basically used on all recent Honda/Acura products.

    If there are any hardware whizes on here, if you pull out the screen (fairly easy) you can find the part and model no. It's a pretty oddball part, rarely available on the open market. But the datasheet and the protocol are out there. So if you can manage to convert that and make a switcher, you've got a solution for a huge slice of the market. I'd be willing to pay you $500 - $700 just for the first one.
