hdmi to lvds converter
I have a query re. LVDS with particularly reference to LCD TV.
ALL TV LCD/LED screens are driven by the TCON (timing and control) board, which in turn has an LVDS input connector from the main tv board. In order to test both the TCON board and LCD screen, I would like to generate an "external" LVDS signal and attached it to the LVDS input of the TCON board.
I thought of getting an hdmi source (pc, dvd player etc), connecting the hdmi output to a "hdmi to LVDS converter board" and connect the LVDS to the TCON board and hopefully see on the TV LCD/LED whatever is playing on the pc, dvd player. Sounds too simple, surely there must be some programming involved to match resolution, refresh rates etc.
Many thanks, dericko
