Hey guys!

I tried really hard with my LCD Panel when I bought it to make sure it was Minimig, compatible.

I took the Minimig to the Tiger Direct store and had the sales guy hook it up. I went through various tests.

I was looking for the Best 32" 1080p that had VGA working with Minimig.

Ended up getting a Samsung LN32B530 for $429 which was an incredible deal at the time. Too good to be true...

I tested both PAL and NTSC mode, but I failed to realize PAL mode cuts off some pixels...

So anyway, I ordered this stuff:

This is the (SCART cable for Minimig) from amigakit:

Combined with this gizmo (SCART->HDMI) from dealextreme:

In theory this would be pretty nice. It would at least get rid of interlace mode in theory. Also having sound integrated as a great bonus.

I'm going to give it a try. If it works (that and I get that elusive ARM controller)...

Let you know how it works out eventually (DX takes forever) I already ordered all this junk.

Thanks for reading! Keep up the Awesome Minimig work! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

normaly it should be possible, to find a lcd-panel which worked with the minimig without adapters and without cutting pixels.
puuuuh, the scart-video to hdmi-converter is not cheap :?
