Motorola Lapdock into KVM

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
Ok so I have achieved success mostly.

I have also discovered that there are at least 3 different lap docks and =
one works better than the rest. I think it is the Lapdock Pro=E2=80=A6 It=
 is the one with a removable cable connector instead of a =E2=80=9Cdock=E2=
=80=9D

The one caveat is that to make it work with VGA (non digital signal) requ=
ires another =2435 dollar converter that is now on order. It works great =
with DVI and HDMI outputs. MOST of the devices I would use this with are =
VGA only, so this is a must.

Sill have to modify a USB cable to not carry the +5V from the Lapdock bat=
tery back to the motherboard that is also outputting +5v. This is to avoi=
d releasing the magic smoke that makes things work.

I think my portable self powered KVM is gonna be a great piece of kit.

I have also dorked around with the droid bionic in my lap dock, and I got=
ta say it is pretty cool and just a step or 2 away from being a real =E2=80=
=9Claptop=E2=80=9D replacement. Pair this with the Ubuntu phone project (=
which becomes Ubuntu desktop edition when plugged into external display) =
and it would be a pretty sweet setup.
