Connecting A Lcd To An Xbox
« on: March 08, 2013, 01:47:01 PM »


pardon me if my question is redundunt, stupid, or outlandish, but is it possible to attach a lcd screen from a laptop(with the inverter) to a xbox?

i happen to have a spare LCD with the inverter lying around  and was wondering if i were to strip the connector from the end were it plugs into the motherboard of the laptop if the pinout would be the same as a VGA connector.

if so then my only issue is hooking up the inverter, and if any one has any helpful points on that i would be apreaciative

Yes, you can use a laptop screen with an xbox. Not it's not that simple.

I had to spend $60 on parts in order to make this happen.
Part One: Component Video to VGA Converter: $25
Part Two: Custom programed VGA to LVDS interpreter: $30
Part Three: Power Supply: $5

The xbox simply does not output a signal usable by the laptop screen, but luckily you can find converters.
I used a company called NJYTouch from ebay for the VGA-LVDS converter, and I'm pretty sure I've linked to my VGA mod method in that thread, and have certainly posted it elsewhere.

It is possible, though. Which is cool.

thanks ttsgeb, that helps me out a bit. since im actually building a YPbPr to VGA transcoder all i will need is the VGA to LVDS interpreter. and power supply said interpreter. and since im NOT going to slimline it i sould have plenty of extra room  in the case to put the extra board, mount up the screen and such.
