Will this screen work?

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

Will this screen work?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this post in (I'm pretty sure it is though lol). I know the sticky said most rearview car screen things would work, but I am just checking.

Anyways, do you guys think that screen would work for a PS2 Portable (It has AV In).

Plus it's only about $20!

Hi StealthShock,
I'm pretty sure the screen will work, although there are two things to look at:
- Which video inputs does the screen support (such as composite video will be needed)
- What is the screen quality (which resolution etc)

Good luck!

It'll work, but it's a bit small, seeing the lack of trimming knowledge for PS2's. Try eBaying "4.3" TFT."

Will do.

Right now I have a gamecube and a ps2 and I'm trying to decide if I want to portable/mod one of them and which one.

Hi Stealthshock,
I had to make the same decision because I also have a GameCube and a PS2, but finally I have chosen for the Cube, because the PS2 games are also available for the computer... The GameCube has more games of its own, so I would choose the gamecube.

Additionally, there is FAR more documentation on Gamecube portables and people have discovered lots of stuff.
