(Arpicade) HDMI to VGA? - Solved!
#367523 - 07/03/17 11:37 PM Attachment: ra-19-lcd-crt-kit_02lg.jpg 116 KB (0 downloads)


Anyone know a way to convert the HDMI signal on an Arpicade/RaspberryPi-JAMMA to a (S)VGA monitor? I've tried using the dongle on the piJAMMA PCB board, as well as one I got from Wal-Mart and another from Best Buy. I've tried a couple different monitors (and my TV which also has that blue SVGA input) - no luck. I'd like to keep the 4:3 aspect ratio of the SVGA monitor, and don't have a spare 19" arcade monitor (at the moment). Is there a software tweak I'm missing?


SOLUTION: Every once in a while my Google-Fu would come up with a mention of a Holland Video Adapter, so I looked up a pic and whadya know - I had three of these (one still sealed in a anti-static bag) that I had in a box in the garage.

Wired it up using an old 5V Nokia wall plug - nothing...wired up a spare switching power supply and BINGO, I'm in business.

And for the purists out there, this isn't for a classic cab, but a home-made (in 2000) MAME cab I built while I was between jobs.

Try to keep up The monitor isn't why we disapprove, it's the Raspberry Puke.

So corny and cheap. Can even catch your cabinet on fire. (Joking about the fire part.) lol
