Could someone with more experience tell me something - I am cautious of
building a VGA -> SCART converter, but perhaps I do not need to be. It
has always concerned me that I might send a signal that is WAY out of
range down the wire (frequency, voltage etc), and damage some aspect of
Is this possible? The TV is a reasonably recent 32" widescreen.
How does the TV handle the text-mode signal? Does it sync well enough to
be displayed before X kicks in, or is the boot-sequence hidden?
Is there a site where I can read-up on this type of issue?
Many thanks for any answers.
