Just ordered one of these from Expansys:

http://www.expansys....modaco&i=145166

4-in-1 cable gives you S-Video, VGA, Composite and a proper USB port for USB host :D

Handily I had a 10 quid off at Expansys voucher kicking around, which tempted me, i'll post thoughts when it arrives ;)

I've had mine for a while now. Check this out:-

That'll be the Ameo with the 4 in 1 cable running a movie over SVideo Out that it's reading from an external USB drive.
Sweet.

Looks even better in fullscreen.

I can also confirm that an external keyboard works through the USB port too, although I've not had much joy with an external mouse.
The mouse seems to work, as the scroll button works but there's no pointer.

Know of a way to get a pointer going?

I'll have a play once my cable arrives, hopefully tomorrow!

Played with Real VGA yet? The massive title bars etc. are such a waste of real estate!

Not yet, most things I need real estate for are full screen. I'm pretty light on the today screen.
You played with it?

Yeah, not 100% yet but getting there.

Even Opera etc. full screen isn't REALLY full screen out of the box ;)

I had a quick play with ozVGA earlier on it.
It kinda worked, but it was woefully slow.
Strange that I couldn't get the forced change of res in the registry to work though.
Which route are you taking?

And no, the mouse doesn't work cos there's no pointer ;)

I wonder if I can grab the 'mouse mode' driver from an Artemis?

you may want to try nyditot virtual display

http://www.nyditot.com/Home.asp


chaps over on aximsite have used to good use in using the Intel 2700 graphics chip. the ameo may benefit from it. Has a max external resolution of 1024x768 i think.

Strange, I just purchase the 4 in 1 cable, the USB mouse works really well. Could it because I have upgrade to WM6 ?
