I've obtained several pentium based sbc's, which have a *standard* interface (based on a common C&T ic, the designation escapes me at the moment). I also have a bunch of 486 era LCD's that were used on/an IBM Thinkpad. Question: Provided I obtained a pinout of the LCD's connector, is it simply cookbook getting the 2 interfaced? The chart that's in the SBC's booklet specifies which modes the controller can operate in (jumper selectable as I recall). Standard VGA modes - 640x480,800x600, etc. Are these screens likely to be generic enough that I can simply plug them into the sbc's connector, matching suitable pin for pin, signal for signal?
On another note, is there a way to pipe video (composite) into a USB2 port and direct to the computer's/laptop's screen?
