I'm a newbie to the board. I fact I only discovered the board by accident and was so facinated I bought myself an I-opener to play around with. I'm using the I-opener and a 9" TV/VCR combo unit to create an entertainment system for my van. I want to be able to see the display from the TV (located in the back seat) on the I-opener (up front) and will be using a WinTV USB to accomplish that. I'd like to use a VGA to NTSC converter so that I can see the output of the computer on the TV screen in the backseat as well. I've seen the links to some great schematics for adding a DB9 serial port to the back of the IO, but I haven't seen the same type of info for adding an external VGA port - though I have seen references to indicate that its possible. So, now my question is "How do I make a cable for connecting a VGA out connector to the double-row VGA header on the mainboard?" Any info will be appreciated.
I did the VGA out hack and it works fine up to the point where Windows takes over.
I can see the bios logo fine, but when windows starts to load up, my monitor goes blank and shuts itself off.
Do I have to disconnect the I-Opener LCD?
I would Guess your Monitor can't handle the signal !
Hard to Imagine it couldn't do 800 x 600.
Are you trying a Nice Modern Monitor or an OLD one ?
You might have a Refresh Rate Setting that it can't handle ?
The I opener monitor setup default is LCD only. You will need to go into the Display Control panel and if you have loaded the CyberBlade drivers there will be a tab to select that. I don;t have my IO in front of me now or I would be a bit more detailed. Just set it up for LCD/CRT and it will do both fine.
Thanks very much, that did the trick. For anyone else, Right click the desktop, go into Properties, the Settings Tab and click the "Advanced.." button that will bring up all the cyberblade option tabs, you want Display Device and click LCD/CRT.
