Doesn't this take the fun out of generating an [analog] video signal from a microcontroller though? Where's the cycle-counting timing goodness?

Kidding aside, this looks like a fantastic toy to play around with.

According to display controller's datasheet[1], it does support analog (RGB) input too ;)

Edit: well, reading the datasheet a bit more, the RGB interface is somewhat digital. But fiddling with timing is still there ;)

We embedded engineers think the same thing about stuff like Rails and Sinatra. Where's all the fun in making your own web stack anymore? =)

Gotta start somewhere ;). I'l see how it goes, have two LCD's ordered and on the way now.
