Features of SA_WXR
Weather radar working on the PSone screen, pictures below
Some photo's of the SA-WXR running on the PSOne LCD
Using Plexiglas and 4 x 6mm busses to protect the backside of the LCD screen.
Front panel design
Above the mechanism for the push buttons; the left buttons will push directly on the tactile buttons of the PSOne PCB (brightness + /-). The right buttons will be used the switch the radar functions OFP and GCS on/off. The switch contacts are build within
The rods have will be shorted to the right length (as soon as panel is finalised)
The picture below shows a potmeter with a neutral 'click' in the middle of
the rotation (like the balance in a radio).
The potmeter will be used to set the TILT (from -15 degrees to +15 degrees with a neutral 0 degrees)
I'm using a modified PSOne screen for displaying the weather radar. This screen is connected to the TV-out connector on the video card
Computer S-video to TV composite video
If you want to use a VGA output to connect to the PSOne it is possible to hack the PSOne. I added some links below. Opinions vary if this is worth the effort. The "Video Output" Quality and the "VGA Output Quality" seem to come close
