If you love your Chumby — the tiny widget-friendly computer — but wish you could plug it into a bigger screen than what’s built-in, this easy hack is for you.
The Chumby already comes with a video-out system built right into the motherboard, it’s just not hooked up to an external jack. All you need to do to enable video output on your Chumby is to solder a basic composite jack onto the video-out on the mother board. Once you add the output, load up a custom kernel on the device, and you’re in business.
The full instructions, including photos, are available at the link below. Have a favourite small-electronics hack to share? Let’s hear about it in the comments. Don’t forget Lifehacker has its own Chumby widget as well.
