'[OT] Disabling video via the PC bus'
One for the PC gurus I suspect, but is there a bus signal on a PC bus one
can intercept/control that will disable/enable video output to a monitor?
I have an existing device, using an LF initiator coil, that enables the AFE of a
PIC16F639 in an ID badge worn by the user. The LF data from the initiator sends
an 8-bit challenge code to the PIC16F639, wakes up the controller, which then
transmits via UHF (if the challenge code matches) to a receiver that makes or
breaks a video signal (hardware connection between video card & monitor) using
a small DIP relay.
This works fine, but I would prefer to build a card with the receiver that inserts
directly into a PC card slot VS the mechanical relay option.
Is this do-able?
Not easily (read, practically impossible).
Best bet is probably to make a little serial/usb module then use a tiny
program on the PC itself to just trigger the screen saver or something

Kind of what I figured. Thanks.
