Frank should be able to help out with this one. He is working on something like that right now. I'll tell him to stop by.

grca means graphics card and dvi is digital video interface i think, but i dont know for shure. it is sometimes seen as a double row of pins on ya graffix card, looking somehow like a 20 pin floppy connector.

Well well well. Frank is back in da house.

And yes I do have pretty much the same predicament: how to wire up my 9.5" lcd to my mp3 box (that's a project in the works)... As I write this, i've found one option: http://earthlcd.com/controllers.htm. The only problem with that is that it's not cheap.

I've seen a site where they explain the wiring but can't find the damn place anymore. If/when I find it, i'll post it RIGHT HERE.
