Ok, I bought that USB to VGA adaptor from Kairen and it just arrived today with my C3000
This is gonna be a fun weekend with so many new toys. I also just bought a SanDisk ConnectPlus CF Wifi card.
Just an update on my findings so far in case someone is interested.
It works as I expected. The adaptor is detected as a sisusbvga device: USB2VGA dongle
It is allocated 8 output buffers with 8MB SDR SDRAM with a bus width of 32 by the driver.
The VGA presentation application allows you to use the dongle for presentation. The app is limited to doing slideshows only. It slowly streams the data to the usb device which then buffers it and displays it to the monitor. I could even switch applications on the Zaurus while the presentation app continued to send data to the usb device and it renders it to the monitor. However, the VGA application crashes after a while
The image on the monitor remains even when rebooting the Zaurus so I guess the last image displayed is buffered by the usb dongle and the monitor is getting the cached data from it.
This proves that it is technically possible to have VGA out for the Zaurus via USB, however, the current state of the driver and application is very limited and needs more work. It is also very slow due to the slow USB bus speed implemented by the Zaurus.
I then plugged the USB dongle into one of my PCs and used it to mirror and split the display on a Win2000 system without any problems. The speed was ok there because it was using USB 2.0 High Speed instead of USB 2.0 Full Speed that the Zaurus uses.
