Any pics of the screen and text clarity?
text clarity would be like a tv (ie cant really read it at all unless text is huge) even through vga i believe correct me if im wrong
but the videos and stuff look perfect
Could you read txt in winamp etc on the playlists?
lmao i wonder what that is
If you look in the project logs section, I have a log called ProjectSOne. It has lots of pic, especialy of text. Check it out, it might help you out.
its jennifer anistons ass in along came polly lol
but ya winamp text can be read if you enlarge the winamp player to the size of the screen
I got some shots I took of mine Yesterday. This was running Halo 2 off my xbox with s-video. The text was all legible and the video looked sweet. Anyway here are the pics.
This one with the flash, washed out all the background stuff, but you can clearly see they crisp text.
Same Screen but without the flash, now you can see the background images
And now a cut-scene from the game, this one wasnt washed out by the flash but the camera wasnt paralell to the screen so the image wasnt clear.
If you need more pics, i can take them. Hope this helped
ya hooking up to a console is different from a pc
consoles are made for tvs, which the psone screen is made for. They have different scan lines and all that
and use a way less res
that looks nice thouhg, i didnt think of hookin up my ps2 to my screen
I know, i just thought in cases you wanted some reference... Yeah I would hook it up to my pc but i would have to restart and right now I cant. When I can, i get you some more pics.
you shouldnt have to restart, lol i just plug it in then turn the power on
Can some one get a pic of winamp on full screen? So i can see if the text is good? The screen il be using is 6.5" wide, so the it should be clearer than the psone a little!
But the theory is the same!
Thanx for those already
Well yes and no. I have to restard for windows to find it as a second monitor. The nvidia drivers do it but I can make the screen resulution any smaller than my main monitor.
On another note:
I also have a 6" tft lcd. I will put winamp full screen on it when i get home from school. I will be home in like 3 hours.
Cheers is this and compositie connection?
Cam i ave a pick of winamp full screen and some text like different size fonts?
As Promised, More lcd pics. Sorry for the image quality, my camera doesnt like to photograph lcds. The text and images are super clear irl. The cross hatching look is done by the camera and is not there irl. This was a $200 screen (got it for last xmas) and is one of the best lcds I have ever seen. All pictures taken with the lcd at a resolution of 800x600 and this is a rca (composite) connection. There is a s-video to rca adaptor from the videocard to the screen.
Ok this first pic is of winamp. The player window is scaled to 200% and the playlist text is font size 20
Same as above but with Font size 30 in the play list
Both sizes of font are esaly readable but I personally like the 30 just cuz its easier to read from 3 ft away.
Also like requested, I have all the different fonts. Size 14 is hard to read irl and 10 and 12 are near impossible. Everything from 14 is crisp and clear irl
If you need anymore just let me know. I Hoped this helped you.
Is this s-video or composite connection? AS i cant get vga
The photos are gr8, what is the actual monitor?
The Screen is an Accele Vison TFT LCD part number LCDP56FN. The screen is made for car instalations and comes with a headrest mount, a remote and also a dash mout stand which is what I use on my desk.
Here are pictures of the screen. (I Photoshoped the first one to remove the glare on the screen)
That blue cord is 10ft long and goes to this breakout box. Here is where the power and video signals plug into. There are 2 inputs and 1 output. There are also audio connections for the headphone jack.
And this last shot is of the back of my computer showing you the adaptor.
Now to help clarify the way I connect my screen to mr computer I will attemp to make a diagram. Here it goes.
S-Video Out from my computer-- S-Video to RCA adaptor--<RCA Cable>-- Breakout box (Power is connected here too---<10ft Blue Cord>---- LCD
What is funny? Am I missing something?
