Post by kylefoley2000 » 29 May 2011, 22:15

I saw one post of a guy who painted his whole scanner black. He also connected two LCD monitors to the pillar of the scanner. I want to talk to him because I want to find out how to get LCD monitors that my RCA video cable will connected to. it doesn't look like any of the monitors have an RCA video input. does anyone know where that thread is. he had a huge thread of how he did his whole project.

Not sure which one you're talking about. Take a look at this page to see a list of scanners with names attached. Hopefully you'll be able to match what you saw with a name!

Thanks, he's the one. Man, you knew that and you've only posted in here 3 times.
