It also turned out that there were 2 circuit boards, a big one with an audio amplifier and some power supply circuitry and a small one for the actual screen. Essentially the screen will operate with just a 4-wire connection (9 volt, GND, Video and Video GND). There is another connector for options (screen mode, colour and brightness), but with nothing connected to this the monitor defaults to perfectly use-able settings.
In the photo I have it hooked to a PC via a VGA-to-Video adaptor. The computer is running Tiny Core Linux (my new favourite distro) in 640 x 480 mode (I think). It will go down to 320 x 240 which gives huge icons that would be great with a touch screen.
The wallpaper is Pink Floyd's 'Animals' album cover, recently re-created over Battersea Power Station - "Every Dog needs a home, a shelter from Pigs on the wing."
