Mahjonng : yes, the cheap HDMI -> VGA converters don't seem to work though it looks like it should be possible to DIY a converter that actually will work and doesn't cost a leg.
I'm just wondering if THAT DIY project is going in the right direction.
If someone has a cheap and working HDMI to VGA converter (and low shipping price) then let us know.
Impulse 405 : Have a look at this topic: http://www.raspberrypi.org/for.....38;ret=all
I hope someone is able to give it a try ASAP, I don't have mi Pi yet…
Don't expect high performance over USB, but at least you would be able to connect a VGA (or a display with DisplayLink USB)
I doubt if the Pi CPU is powerful enough for multi display, though some kind of multi display time table system should be possible I guess.
THOUGH we need someone to test and see if it is already working on the Pi.
Can you imagine the power of such a display with a touchscreen????
