Use portable dvd player for xbox laptop screen

Post by xX13vamper37Xx » Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:23 pm

does anyone know if this would work?

http://www.espow.com/wholesale-portable ... eader.html

i was planning on keeping the internals of it except for CD drive and battery etc., cutting down the case but using the same hinges and screen bezel..(not sure if thts the right word) and then wiring the video straight through the VGA port..sooooo basically the screen would be operating separate from the Xbox.. same principle as using a computer monitor right?

yeah, that would work really well, just make sure you can build the laptop part and fit everything inside

it would look nice once finished aswell
