I've had my Gamecube working on mine once. It worked great.

I've got two portable DVD players that have video-in capability. One is an old panasonic DVD-L75 I won in some sort of drawing, and the other is an "eSonic PD-258" I pulled from a dumpster (DVD part broken, menus in japanese, but works as a monitor.) IIRC, both of these have some sort of "setup" function that controls whether the "video" RCA jack is an output (default) or an input. I think both have s-video that is output only. I connected the eSonic to one of the spare monitor outputs on my Son's computer (via s-video to RCA converter.) The screen is JUST big enough to put up a clock :-)

Wow. LOL! I doubt it, most portable players don't have any type of input. Sorry.

Tv input taken from xbox is nothing like a technology used for flat screens, Tv uses one line (although they say so many lines, its actually only one running from top to bottom. ) tft screens use a matrix, with inputs to screen along side and top.

Void your warranty and crack one open ;) It just might have acceptable connectivity (on the insides) that you can tap into (kinda like the PSone screens) :D


If you happen to find a particular brand that has such connectivity -- do share :D
