from now on mirror orders in different geometrical forms are possible 🙂
I have created a new thread for this so that this information in the existing thread for the orders will not be overlooked. The conditions can be found in the picture below. You will continue to receive all existing edges including geometric shapes polished, if you want. 😉
The orders themselves continue to run on the respective thread.
If you are interested, please deposit a note in “additional comments” and send me a drawing of your desire 😉
I’m ready to start building. I’ve disassembled my monitor. The power button is a blister type. I plan to glue the entire strip of buttons on the back of the LCD and use a sharpie to mark what they are.
I plan to run the power cord for the monitor and the pi into a 3 into 1 adapter and then run an extension cord from the adapter to the outlet. Does that sound like a reasonable plan?
On the PIR sensors, I’ve got one in my Amazon cart, I’d like to get the pre-made wire harnesses for it, but it seems like the smallest number I can purchase is 120. I only need a few, in the event I make a mistake. Any suggestions/
@flavito You posted the model type of the LCD panel. So I assume you don’t have a complete monitor but just the naked panel. Hence your question about connecting it to the pi.
What you need is a LCD controller board. I wrote a lot about those in this forum already and I don’t want to repeat myself all the time. So have a look here and here. Maybe use the forum search. You should find all the information you need.
What I can tell you is that your panel is 21.5 inch, FullHD (1920x1080) and it has a 30-pin 2-Channel, 8-bit interface.
You’ll find solutions as cheap as 3-4€ with a bit of hands-on work, 10€ for plug’n’play but a relay is needed if you want to use a PIR-sensor, or 30€ for a board with the needed firmware pre-installed. They all have pros (e.g. price) and cons (custom wiring).
Read a bit and if you have further questions you just ask again. Usually I look at the forum daily or at least every two days.
Disclaimer: I am with no means an expert here. I just went through the same research when I build my mirror.
Hi…Some more up to date Samsung LED-LCDs and LCDs with 240Hz processor have separate tests for FRC (movement upconverter/T-con) and principle board from administration menu, yet no entrance if TV will not catalyst and menus aren’t usable.
can I put an animated background / wall paper on my magic mirror?
maybe, but rememeber all that animation takes cpu power… nothing is free…
Fair point. I can see my magic mirror having some dark space (side or bottom) and I want to see if I can set it up so that you can’t tell where the screen starts and ends. something like an aquarium with the rocks at the bottom being part of the static (non-screen) area and the fish being on / in the actual screen area.
So. Getting ready to order the mirror for my build and I wanted to check the size before I do. Do I need the mirror to sit completely flush against the screen or can it over lap a bit sitting on that metal edge around the screen?
