Western Digital MyBook World Edition: Connecting to keyboard and monitor or TV set
It is possible to connect WD Mybook to a keyboard and monitor (either LCD or television) using MicroVGA-TEXT.
The only issue is missing handshaking signals, so low baudrate has to be used or additional delays added
when redrawing screens.
I use MyBook&MicroVGA to display "teletext-style" personalised information on my TV in bedroom.
Simply connect Micro VGA-TEXT as follows:
|MyBook signal||Mybook pin/wire||MicroVGA|
|GND||BLACK WIRE||GND (1)|
|+5V||RED WIRE||+5V (2)|
Serial port pinout
RX 3 o o 1 -
TX 4 o o 2 GND
