How to display dvd player chapter and timestamp info in two separate locations and not on the projection screen? Answered
This is for a highschool orchestra to rehearse and perform during a silent film presentation. The person projecting the movie needs to monitor the chapter and timestamp and so does the conductor of the orchestra some distance away and preferably with a larger counter display (like this one). I've looked into extracting a timestamp signal from any player outputs but this seems to be absent except maybe in the audio output. Also, if there were a way to hack into a OS X dvd player to output the control information (specifically the timestamp) we could use a macbook too. Only thought I had was to get two identical players and take the LED display panel out of the second and somehow wire up to the first.
Thanks for any thoughts you can share!
