After Logging in

Now We need to setup the PSOne LCD using the Powerstip software

Note: I will post the detailed steps Later

After few hours of trial and error, I have this result:

I can see some development so I keep trying... And finally after days of finding the right right timings, I manage find the exact settings.

Re: PSOne LCD Mod (VGA)

Great Guide!!  Thank you for taking the time to write it. Definitely more detailed than some others that I've seen.

Perhaps I could suggest that you include video cards that are compatible with this modification seeing that it is not universally compatible and requires a video card that has c-sync on it. I could be wrong about this for the newest cards but, I know it was a problem in the past.

Also, I'm looking forward to you adding more detailed information about how you used powerstrip to setup the lcd properly.

Thanks again!!

Re: PSOne LCD Mod (VGA)

I used ATI Radeon 7000 PCI video card which has C-Sync enabled... By the way video cards without C-Sync can do this mod but you need to create an C-Sync conversion circuit. I will post about this circuit later...

by the way here my Powerstip settings:

PowerStrip timing parameters:
640x480=640,29,96,35,480,10,2,33,12750,312

Generic timing details for 640x480:
HFP=29 HSW=96 HBP=35 kHz=16 VFP=10 VSW=2 VBP=33 Hz=30

VESA detailed timing:
PClk=12.75 H.Active=640 H.Blank=160 H.Offset=13 HSW=96 V.Active=480 V.Blank=45 V.Offset=10 VSW=2

Linux modeline parameters:
"640x480" 12.750 640 669 765 800 480 490 492 525 interlace +hsync +vsync
