So if I understand you, you intend to leave the computer 100% intact, expect route the cable from the LCD out of the iMac, and connect it to a computer running externally.Hi, thanks for the answer.
Is it possible to let the LCD Panel stay inside the iMac and just connect the graphics card with the LCD connector? It doesn't matter if the iMac has to be turned while I'm using the LCD Panel as screen.
This way it would easier for me, since I'm not that familiar with all the electronic stuff.
Edit: Is it maybe possible to get a LED driver board from a new iMac, that supports TDM? I don't know which hardware in the iMac is used for TDM, any thoughts?
So if this actually worked and the computer didn't shutdown with some sort of internal error (not saying it would) the issue still remains the 30 pin connecter on the LCD is not a standard display port connector, so you can't just plug it into a computer. It has all the same signals, but the physical connector is different. It is this difference which is the major problem to overcome, as you need to connect each of the wires in the cable to a standard display port connector.
