I have an old Halo CE, TSOP w/ X2 5035 and I was going to mount a LCD from a laptop on it

1) Are there any pre-built solutions for this, preferably that have the sync splitter built in?

2) Do I need a bios change?

I use this (very cheap on eBay) and it works a treat in conjunction with a component lead.

Took me ages fiddling with the various picture settings but one I got it where I wanted it the picture is really nice. Halo 2 looks amazing on my 19" (non-widescreen) monitor.

It may be considered on a different setup, but the setup I'm going for it'd be too clunky

You would need an LVDS to VGA converter to adapt your Laptop display to accept a VGA signal. Like this one.
but not all laptop LCD display's are the same so you would need to make sure the above adapter will connect to your (1 of a billion different types of) monitor.
Then, you would need a VGA to ypbpr converter to convert the Xbox HD signal to VGA. Like this one.

This is the main reason (next to power constraints) why no one has build an xbox laptop. Try cramming all of that stuff into a laptop shell. laugh.gif

Trust me, the screen from a dead laptop is useless. I used to hang on to them too until I found out that they are really only good for replacement parts for another laptop so unless you have tons of money and time (and are trying to connect one to anything but an xbox), or are a laptop repair guy, there is no reason to save them.

If you're using a laptop lcd theres no point in doing 2 conversions component>VGA>LVDS. Just forego vga and use something like this.

If this device does not accept a Sync on Green signal, it will not work for an xbox outside of SD resolution. No component inputs (that I seen) either.

Pretty nifty device tho. Never seen one of those before.
