Hack a  DVD player into an NTSC display


Here’s a quick how-to on creating a composite video display from a cheap Cyberhome DVD player. There’s even instructions on where to tap the circuit for audio playback. [via]-Link

Too bad some of the PCB images are so blurry – if only the author hacked his camera into taking macro shots . . .

    I wonder if you could just figure out which pin provides power to the chip the author hacks off, clip that and wire up a switch and leave the DVD stuff intact. Then you could have a switch that would either let you use it as a video input device, or as a DVD player. Granted, a 8cm mini-DVD player, but that’s big enough for episodes of TV/anime. If only mini-DVDs weren’t so expensive.
