Using the Slinke-X automation capability and a PC board like the all in wonder ATI Pro you can write a very simple application which will act as a TV display driver for CDJ. The app just regsiters with the slinkserver and watches for messages that indicate what is going on, and then puts the text on the screen in BIG font (e.g. 30 point). The ATI will porovide video out in composite or S video which you can feed in to the modulator and push around your catv network. Under win 98 you could even have 2 monitors going so that you still have a pC screen at a different resolution. Actually you only need one monitor but two video boards one of them being the ATI and the other the one you have.
So in summary, an ATI board, Windows 98 and a little VB code will allow you to have as complicated a video display as you want to show what is happening on the megachanger via CDJ, and won't interfer with your use of the PC
