This instructable will show you how to set up your PSP to be used as a Second Monitor on your PC. This can be helpful in many ways, for example watching a tutorial on the psp and doing it on your main monitor, or simply moving your media player out of the way.
Step 1: What you'll need
- a PSP running a custom firmware above 3.71 [I used 4.01 M33-2]
- PSPDisp by Jochen Schleu
- A USB Cable
My PSP is a Phat PSP with 4.01 M33-2. I haven't tested this on a slim or any other firmware, so I'm not sure how well (or not) this will work on other setups.
From the PSPDisp Readme, you'll also need:
- a PC running Windows XP 32 bit (it will not work on 64 bit versions or Vista, it may run under Windows 2000 but this is untested)
- a suitably fast processor, for comparison:
-> 25 % CPU load on single core Pentium 4 3.06 Ghz
-> 40 % CPU load on single core AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2.2 Ghz)
It should be fine on any modern PC.
