A do-it-all-in-one-cable For laptops(an idea) Using the ATX 24...
ITs a do-it-all-in-one cable,a cable that connects to your laptops s-video,rca,vga,sound,and even usb through one cable using CAT5 cable for it(If cat5 contains enough cables in it)
The cable at both ends will have the ATX 24 pin connector that connects to a project box,but thats another part,we will get to that later
S-Video ---------- 3 Data 1 common ground
RCA ---------------- 1 Data 1 common ground
VGA ---------------- 5 Data 3 common ground
USB --------------- 2 Data 1 5V 1 common ground
Sound ------------ 2 Data 1 Common ground
Grand total = 15-mixing grounds/ 19 - separate grounds
So according to that,i would need 2 and a half CAT5 Cables(if i use separate grounds),which i am going to squish together into one big cable.
Or 2 CAT5 cables (if i mix all of the grounds)
Now,i would have all of the cables squished together into some tubing(heat shrink?,no too expensive in such a large amount)with the ATX 24 pin connector at each end.
Now,the project box,it will have the opposite connector(the one that the other connector connects to) will go into a box with that connector soldered on a breadboard inside of it(i could get the connector from a computer,or 2(i have 2 fried motherboards so ...))and in the other side of the (plastic)box would be all of the connectors(Sound connector,VGA,Svideo,RCA,usb(maybe for IR receiver or something))that connects to the TV,or monitor.
The other end with the same connector would connect to the laptop,it would have VGA,RCA or SVideo,Sound,and USB
So now that i got my point out,what do you think?
That the all-in-one cable,or a bunch of tangled cables just to put video and sound to the tv,and that is without USB,whats the fun of not having a usb connector from your laptop 20 feet away from you,you could connect a web cam,to see yourself on the tv,or a ir receiver,to control the pc without a keyboard and mouse,or whatever else you can think of.
So...what do you think(poin tout any mistakes i have made by chance)
i think this would be pretty nifty,no?
