this might not be the right forum for this, perhaps someone can direct me elsewhere if so
basically I bought these art screens called Framed ( frm.fm )
long story short they don’t have an input to the display ie vga hdmi dvi etc
the way it’s sold is you connect to an art store via wifi , and buy artworks from there
artists can also be approved to submit their own artworks, but the process is a bit overwrought, and in the end - while u can upload software artworks to the device - my results as a somewhat amateur coder have been sluggish to say the least
so I’ve had the idea to open the unit up and go hunting around for an input. thing is, I’m not too sure what I’m looking for
I figure most IPS on the manufacturer market would be provisioned for input, it’s simply at Framed’s discretion that they chose not to provide it
so I’ve taken the lid off which was a piece of cake, however the next layer has a metal plate and a few exposed connectors, then a small metal plate reveals all the main electronics
looks like there’s actually quite a range of input, USB, even a micro SD there (wonder what I could use that for?)
I can see the HDMI port (its written underneath the coloured wires… I assume the cable and connector is going to the screen? I’m wondering if I might be able to buy a simple adapter to get hdmi to the unit, bypassing the main electronics. As it’s stands the systems boots into its own OS (the Framed OS) , but I suppose I could flash anything i wanted on their with the SD perhaps?
Anyway, this is a fun little venture, I have 3 of them so not too worried about doing surgery on one of them…
Actually, is that mini HDMI right next to the Micro SD? I figure the top board is the display, and the bottom board is a micro controller of some kind? And looks like the micro HDMI goes to the multicoloured port on the top board?
Theoretically I could buy my own cable of this type and run it out of the unit ? (The one in there isn’t long enough it seems )
Looking for any help tips fun ideas here
