I'm determined to do this with an iMac G4 and a mini, as soon as I get the iMac and mini. I've been trying to work out the screen dilemma, and figured a new display would be in order. However, the display cables might be too thick for the neck
Ah! Not only adding DisplayPort to the mix (all Macs are moving to it as said by Steve at the Unibody event) but doing the whole thing twice, too!Hale and hearty this thread must be by now. Time to dig for the solution to the twin displays made possible by the 2009 Mac Mini. I'm in this one for the long haul, and will find a clever solution, I hope. Here's my mock-up for the two flatscreen G4s I've got laying around here:
I need to get a new set of leads for my DMM (old ones are a bit too used and dull to get into the thin spaces needed) and then I can finish the signal cable trace.The inverter has 8 pins in as described below. I can supply pictures of PCB if needed.
Blue = 11.93v
Red = 11.93v
Blk = GND
Blu = GND
Yel = .2mv
Prpl = 3.262v
Orng= no voltage detected
So, it seems to me that with the 12V (blue and red go to fuse on inverter PCB) and 3.3v, the lamps should ignite correct?
However, I am under the assumption that the 3.3v is the on and off and the Yel & Orng are for brightness control. Does that sound correct?
