Get video out

We hope these photos can explain whats happening on our little MANGA box. At beginning of this year, we found an interesting device on the martket (again, in a computer store next to our office). This device is called "USB 2.0 SVGA adapter" from MCT. The immediate thinking is what can we get if we plug this in our MANGA.

OK, it is a long development story and we want to show some output first. Thanks to the Linux SIS video hacker Dr. Thomas Winischhofer, finally he submitted the Linux driver for this device. This driver should has been committed in the kernel 2.6.13 main tree. It is designed for 2.6 series kernel and therefore we modified it for back porting to our 2.4.24 kernel.

Right now we only support 640x480x16bits display but of course the hardware can support higher quality. It is fun to watch slideshows on our little boy, but what can we do more on this? Anyone see this may give us suggestions. :-)

  • Hi,

    I have a question about the adapter.. Where you found the adapter and how much is it? I saw a adapter like exactly the one you have in Golden Center, but it do have any brandname. I want to make sure is it supported by Linux before purchase.
