  1. Hi,

    This is my problem:

    I want to connect a Toshiba LTM14C433 LVDS 14,1" LCD to my DVI graphics card.

    I know i can't connect it to vesa or vga and i don't have an LVDS interface on my mboard. So i figured that DVI and LVDS both use digital signals, so it may be possible to connect it to the DVI output on the back of my graphics card (Nvidia FX5900) without the use of any expensive adapters/convertors.

    My question:
    Is this possible?, and if so: How? and Does anyone have any useful pinouts?

    The digitalness of the signals does not mean compatibility.
    You might as well want to use your soundcard as a TV tuner based on the fact that the input to both is analog.
    The TMDS protocol used in DVI and LVDS are simply not compatible.

    Apparently there are converter boxes, but I have no idea how much they cost or where you could get them.
