    Default vertical and horizontal flip switch

    I remember reading that adding a switch to flip your projection in the horizontal or vertical axis to your projector is easy, but can someone remind me what is used?
    And can a potentiometer be used on the intensity pin for setting the max brightness of your PJ, and also as sliders for the red, green and blue signal pin for controlling the color balance?

    the brightness is easy. use 10k ohm linear pots.

    there are some schematics for xy invert switches on the forum. it's pretty simple, but i'll try to dig them up when i'm back from dinner
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    You have two "ILDA_X+" on the left side of the diagram

    stanwax makes some really nice active electronics to do all that in a back plate.

    You want one? Order what you want and tell him to contact me for payment. Happy random act of kindness.

    My Error, left Side (Entry) surely must be X+ and X- .
    More interesting is a Circuit with one Adj. Resistor to Change Size from -99% to +99% like used in the PureMicro.
    So simple for Guys who grow up with NE555 instead of Arduino ( more analog than yC :-) )

    Better make that TWO Adj.Resistors so you get independent x and y size directly on the back of the projector.
    Cheers
