So someone can be doing live programming while I'm looking up a datasheet or running a movie or anything...its pretty sweet. It has DVI, VGA, Component, S- Video, and Composite inputs and goes up to 1080i/720p<br><br>I was talking with people about how best to use it for the space and Miloh had a great idea of putting it on its own table with wheels. That way it can travel around the space for presentations or datasheet access for circuit hacking mondays. Or for showing projects before Tues meetings and even as a dual display for the busy 5 minutes of fame presentations.
<br><br>I'd like to mount a computer on the back, like a screen-less laptop and I have one in mind already. But I need help with the table and setting it up as a video network over LAN. Let's make this a community project! I think it will be a highlight at NB once its finished and rolling around. It can even be used as a welcome screen when people come in... (well have to give it robot arms of course ;P)<br><br>If anyone wants to get involved just start building or lets talk sometime :)<br><br>Zach<br><br>--- On <b>Sun, 4/3/11, Zach . <i><firstname.lastname@example.org></i></b> wrote:<br><blockquote style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"><br>From: Zach . <email@example.com><br>Subject: [Noisebridge-discuss] 50" TV almost done :D<br>To: firstname.lastname@example.org<br>Date: Sunday, April 3, 2011, 8:38 PM<br><br><div id="yiv453789187"><table border="0"

All inputs work now and everything can be adjusted. I left it on sort of a display mode and moved it away from the member shelves so its less in the way and people can see it (and test it over time).<br><br>The back is still off and the daughter board is hanging there too....please be careful not to mess with it cause it is still in a kinda fragile state (and of course you could get a nasty shock touching the
back). I need to add one small adjustment before I put it all back together.<br><br>the only functionality I couldnt repair is the remote control...but maybe in the future I'll
get that straightened out.<br><br>stubborness prevails again! woot...<br>zach<br></td></tr></tbody></table><br>
