Today I have got a 2.5" TFT-LCD-Display I bought on ebay for 17€ exluding shipping fee. See my first results in getting video out of the Propeller onto the display in the attached film.
Very cool! I'm quite surprised at the quality of video that the Prop can create, so much so that I've been thinking of getting a Prop myself. The screen you bought also looks like it's of fairly decent quality. Do you have a link to it, or some kind of product name/number?
Thanks, but my own effort was more in making the video than doing any significant changes in the code.
The model number of the display is HC2501, from a company called Hexa-Chain, located in Taiwan. I comes in a white OEM cardboard box without any documentation or stickers indicating the model mumber. I have found a datatsheet for model number HC2501P. I suppose the P relates to the PAL model, so maybe the NTSC version has got a N?
I noticed the significance of the suffix letter P or N during my tests. Initially I run the video output on PAL but all I got was bullshit. Then after playing aroung for half an hour I decided to switch over to NTCS mode and - voila! In this moment I noticed that I had bought an NTSC display, which is quite uncommon here in Europe. Fortunately the Propeller is able to handle both PAL and NTSC.
Well, it looks cool on such a small screen either way :). I managed to find a datasheet as well, but it said that the screen was supposed to automatically choose between NTSC or PAL. I guess that's just a case of the marketing department making the datasheets...
