Power draw question.

Post by Madmux17 » Sat Feb 12, 2011 12:46 pm

I'm working on connecting a flat screen to draw directly from the xbox 360 psu. Its a falcon board psu. The screen input is 100v 1.5amps. I know the screen psu steps down to 5vdc so I don't want to tie it to xbox360 5vdc because I keep reading that this may overload 5vdc from the 360 psu. Is it plausible to wire the screen to the psu at a point before it gets stepped down and have just the 100 AC brought into the screens psu, or will this overload the 360 psu input requirements?

Nevermind. I feel stupid now. Ben clearly does this in the engadget tutorial. Ignore please!
