Well, I was surfing the net at work and I came across this Blaze PSP on TV adapter it essentially uses a high quality camera to take a continuous feed of the psp screen. Unlike the other psp to tv adapters, it requires no hacking. I know that the zaurus and psp have similar batteries and all that this hooks into is the battery plug and the rca plug... Do you think with a little hacking around this could work with the Z? I've always wanted to use my zaurus with a monitor... and a tv screen would be the next best thing.

Sorry. Bottom line is that it is doable. I took it apart and looked at it. I am fooling around with a non-destructive method first before I resort to the hacksaw. I am busy with school for a few more months, so play time for my z is limited. Bottom line is that it works, it is just a matter of sufficient surgery to get it to lay flat against the screen. Rather than cut it up, I am looking at making a shim so that my son could also use it with his PSP. It has a plug for USB and power. Unfortunately, they are lined up on the opposite side from the one that works best for the z. I think with my shim method, I can leave the cable along. If I have to resort to the hacksaw, I will drill/dremel some small holes and bring them out the other side. If the shim method works, I think i can just post a template to cut one out as an attachment to this forum (or the new one!). I will try and get on it this week.

Also, I don't see any reason to spend more for the blaze, etc. They all seem to be similar. The other thing that slowed me down was when I found out the pdaXii13 doesn't support my Fellowes Stowaway USB keyboard (darn).
