Generally AV means Composite. Maybe the seller is confused and thought you meant Component video?przemof wrote:I got a reply from the seller:
"it is AV video signal. not composite video."
Code: Select all
#Normal PAL sdtv_mode=2 #sdtv_aspect defines the aspect ratio for composite output (default=1) sdtv_aspect=3 16:9
The board has 2 standard AV (Composite / RCA) inputs which can be connected to any AV source such as a DVD player, camera etc, and of course the RPi. If you have never run a RPi on composite then I would suggest you find an old TV with composite inputs and try it to see if it is usable for your needs. IMO composite is not usable for long term, only as a backup or temporary solution. Text is jittery and hard to read. Many programs are unusable because of the low fixed resolution. Applications / playing field are larger than the screen and impossible to see what you are doing off the edges.christaky wrote:Hello everybody! I have a HSD070I65 display on my hands from a Sony portable DVD player. I found an ebay seller selling the same driver board mentioned in this discussion. Before I make a purchase, I was hoping someone could bring me up to date on how this all works. This looks like a nice display and I don't want to throw away [who throws anything away, anyways]. If I purchase this driver board and after i connect it up with the display, what will be my next step? Will this driver board accept video input signals from a classic A/V cable straight out of a DVD player? Also, how in the world would I set it up with an HDMI output signal from a camera?
My hopes is that I will construct a case for this project and mount it to my Sony Handycam camera and use it as an additional display.
If you know nothing about the driver board or have no clue as to what I said before, I ask you this; what would you do with a small LCD screen and a Pi?
Go to the OSD setup using the menu button on the remote. These screens have this feature so the camera or screen can be mounted in any orientation and also so the image from the reverse camera can be corrected.ShadowBlade wrote:Alright so it works! Except it's backwards? The text looks like it's in a mirror... Anyone have this problem and have a solution?
I don't know if you're still active here, but I've got this board with some cables that will really be way too big for my project. Before I cut them up, would you be willing to send me some. I don't know how much shipping would be, but I'd be happy to cover that.przemof wrote: I bought them at http://radionics.rs-online.com (2 bags of 50 ), so if someone needs it please contact me.
