Marcus, if you're going to go this route instead of the SmallHD monitor, get one of the Sony's that has the 800x480 rez. All of the Sony dvd players look similar in appearance, but have different rez specs.

I wonder about this player: 1 PC 9 Inch LCD Screen Portable DVD Player + TV - DVD-T8400
The specs call for 800x600 screen resolution

hi guys, quick question.
If I got the sony dvp fx930 from the U.S. (im in Australia) it will be ntsc, the GY HM100 im using is PAL. Will that be an issue for using it as a monitor, or is it just for DVD playing compatibility?
thanks for any info.

I checked Toshiba SDP93S and by far it is the easiest player to set it up with great picture quality. It does have 800x480 resolution and a separate AV-in jack (3.5 mini). I checked it with my JVC GY-HM100 and it worked like a charm, was able to get a perfect focus with it, all the information was on both. As usual B&H has a great price on the unit and I am planing on ordering one soon.

If anyone's interested, the Sony FX930 DVD player with a 9" 480 line screen is at the Sony online outlet (refurbs) for $100 and free shipping. I got a bunch of 820s a few months ago on the recommendations in this thread and have been pretty happy with them as cheap, fairly sharp external monitors.

Deal supposedly ends on the 12th, but who knows...

Here you go:

https://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs...52921665793570

It goes into your cart as $143, but then they take off $43 at checkout. I just ordered two for the kids... at this price they're practically disposable, and I can use them as extra monitors if I need them.

A word to the wise... if you order one, make sure to check it out as soon as it arrives. While it comes with a Sony warranty, the time period is shorter than with a new one.

I tried Sony FX930 at the local BestBuy, but I could not hook it up to my camera, while Toshiba worked right away. Can anyone tell me how to switch the unit to monitor setting? Of course they did not have the manual either, and the sales kid was nice, but no help at all. Thanks

There's an input button on the side. Push it.

The manual is easily downloadable from the Sony website.

Sony FX930 DVD player

You may or msy not know by now, The Sony FX930 DVD player is on sale now at B&H for $138.99 for the black one with free shipping in the US.

Has anyone done a side-by-side comparison with the same DVD (menu section is good) between the 820 and 930? I recall comparing a lot of DVD portables a year or so ago, and the large screens were quite crappy and soft - inadequate if you're trying to judge focus.
