      the problem with this idea is that most lcd use custom hardware voltage(?)
      drivers that cost alot of $$$.
      i use a psone lcd display which has built in video-in. great 5" display and
      dirty cheap. you can strip it out of its beige package and slap some Nice
      clear pvc around it.
