Does anyone know the pinout of the black + white cables used to connect a VBOB to a XT-DIGVID? Is it straight through MDR26 <> MDR26 (or half pitch Centronics, whatever it is called)?

DM2s, DM3s and DM5s have become very affordable, but the LVDS cables used to connect the DM2/3 to the DM5 are still pretty rare (and likely to get even more so when Richtom1s limited supply is exhausted).

If someone with a set of the LVDS cables would take a few minutes to meter the pinout it would be a nice gesture to the nekochan community.

recondas, how right you are. I currently have the cables priced higher than the DM2. 8\

Since the price probably limits your (potential) LVDS cable customers to those with corporate budgets - the very kind who wouldn't be caught dead mucking around with a soldering iron and therefore would still buy from you even if the cable pin-out was publicly available - does that mean you're graciously volunteering to help out your fellow nekochan members by taking five minutes to meter the LVDS cable pin-out.

Or were you just mocking our plight? :D

guys would a snap of the cable suffice? or do you have to crack it open and meticulously examine its guts?

i'll be doing some post work next week, i can ask around if there's any left/hidden in the storage room

What's needed is a listing of how the wires in side the are routed from one end to the other. While a photo would help identify the cables in question, the needed detail would be hidden from a normal photograph. On the other hand, no disassembly should be required, the internal wiring can be determined from either end with the use of a multi-meter or even a simple continuity tester.

If there are any laying around unused, send 'em to me and I'll test them and post the pin-outs. :D

( where do i send it to? was the hidden question :))

a want list of such things would be useful, esp. if they're small enough to be shipped to the research team for analysis/documentation/wikification

If you're in Berlin, you could post one cable to me (I'm in Cologne), and I'll be glad to measure it, post the results and send it back to you. PM me for my postal address.

If they did they haven't posted anything about it here.

I guess the key question is, can one use a 'standard' LVDS cable in place of the original SGI-branded
cables for DM2/VBOB/etc.?

Ian.
