I'm a bit annoyed by the top being backwards, but not so annoyed I didn't preorder one!

Yes, this projector worked with the output from the Lisa hooked up to the green pins on the VGA plug.

I hooked up all 3 so that the picture would be white.

Ever wanted to own a Lisa 1 but can't afford the millions they go for? Try a plush Lisa pillow instead!

So my challenge to you is this, once you get your hands on it, cut it open, insert a touchscreen chromebook folded open in the "screen" area, setup the chromebook to boot into Gallium OS with SeaBios and have it boot directly into LisaEm for the win. ;)

It's a shame that whoever assembled the Lisa pillow installed the top cover backwards putting the ventilation slots in the front....

Interesting... I'm pretty sure I don't have a sync on green projector, but I know I've got a couple of LCD panels that'll take it cause I use them with my SGIs. I'll have to try this.

Yes, to allow this type of connection the projector has to accept sync-on-green. So actually only two cables need to be connected, green and ground.

If you have a projector old enough to handle EGA, chances are good that it can also do sync-on-green.

This is great! 

I am trying to understand how this is working.  Does anyone here know?   I get connecting the signal output of the Lisa to the 3 RGB inputs to make a mono ( B&W ) display, but how in the world is the projector understanding the sync signals?   I know sometimes it's common to have "Sync on Green",  just I am not aware of any VGA display that uses sync on green as an input.   

You said this projector is somewhat "old school" by support EGA resolutions, but it sure seems to be a pretty modern DLP device with a HDMI input and all. 

Again, help me understand how this projector is syncing with out the sync inputs connected?  Do other modern digital displays just ignore the VGA sync signals and somehow use the RGB inputs alone?   

Thanks,

Rick

How did you get this working with a modern projector?  What projector did you use?  I am sure lots of folks here would like to know.

So as not to hijack this thread, I have split compu_85's reply about using the projector into it's own topic.

Thanks again compu_85 for the great presentation.

Rick

I did some editing on the video, this should make it a bit easier to hear and see what is going on:
