How did you power the Scan Do 800?
Met, did you use the 9 pin RGB connector on the Scan Do for the output to the screen?
I have a Scan Do 800 and want to connect it to a Mazda Pop up screen. I am unsure of the pinouts on the RGB connector on the Scan Do. What I have come up with so far is:
Pin 2 Ground
Pin 3 Red
Pin 4 Green
Pin 5 Blue
Pin 7 Composite Sync
Pin 8 Ground (Sync)
Is this the pinout you used?
Also my unit did not come with the cable that connects the computer to scan converter and I will make my own. Do you know the pinouts from the 15 pin vga connector to the dual row 15 pin connector. Any help would be appreciated.
"How did you power the Scan Do 800?" The scan do requires a 5V input. I purchased a connector at radio shack, soldered wires to the connector and will run that off the 5v rail on the pc's power supply. I have not connected the scan do to a pc yet but using the test mode on the front panel that outputs color bars to the tv the unit draws 1A at 5V so 5 watts.
My rgb pinouts in the previous post did not work ... figured it out! Here are two pictures that show the difference between the rca composite and the RGBs connection to my nav screen.
The best image is with the RGBs. The viewing angle of my pictures was not the best and in real life it looks even better. I'm happy with the results. The skin for Roadrunner I am going to use is much larger than a full web page and should look great.
Can you post the pinouts you used?
Nice - thanks
I even looked through your thread in acurazine.
One comment though, and it really applies to many solutions posted on this site; many of solutions base on relays to switch a variety of signals. Like in your solution, you switch low-level signals with 5A relay, but I think completely unnecessary. There's great product that should do better in lieu of the switch. Look up CD4066, it's a quad gate, and with 2 small chips you get low-power, and hi-efficiency switch, no moving parts, so rather great solution for automobile application, and pros overweight cons in all aspects. For sure it will work great switching analog signals. The relay introduces some resistance through the contacts, and depending on type, may fail due to shocks it has to withstand in the car
If you need help with that, PM me, and I can give you quick schematic how to use it.
