Thanks Phat Chap! That's great to know as they sell these monitors on ebay. I will pass the word on the RGB connection. I also see that they are selling these monitors for
725 on the Mazda Forum. Right now they are selling them on ebay for 680 under seller
dboluarte. Here is the info from Samuel at Mazda Forum:
thanks for the kind feedback guys. all the credit should actually be given
to PORT20 on this one as his write up gave me hope that this was even possible.
all the information i needed to do this project was taken from here
I just took all the information i learned from that post and implemented it with this screen.
There are honestly only two components you need to make the VGA connection compatible with
this screen. The 13 pin DIN connector that I got from Ebay and the scan converter which i
got from http://www.converters.tv/. Everthing else is just wiring and connecting things
together. Ofcourse if you have any questions id be glad to answer them. As i stated
earlier though the colours seem to be more vibrant and the smaller text is alot more
readible then when i had it hooked up via the RCA cables. I am very happy with the way
it turned out. I just can't wait to hook everthing up so I can finally enjoy the screen
for what i wanted it for. I guess i'll just go the safe route and put the carputer in my
trunk. thanks for your input and advice on this one blade.
