    A while back my 2ds screen broke and i ended up buying a new 3ds xl a while after. However, after checking, I realized that the screen itself is the only thing that was broken. I dont really need the ds so I thought I'd take a look inside it and I took the whole thing apart. I realized that the screen uses 2 ribbon cables to display the games being played (i assumed one for the top screen and one for the bottom screen) and i was wondering if it would be possible to replace the screen itself with an HDMI input to ribbon cable. My goal would be to have a TV be the primary display or hook up my elgato to it for recording or streaming. If anyone knows a place to look for stuff on this or has info on where to get the HDMI input or has tried this, please let me know! Thank you!

    The easiest way would be to get the system modified with a capture card since it is a bit elaborate to get video capture from the system

    Im aware that this isn't the board for the 2ds but I hope it will help you a bit nonetheless https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Video_Capture

    Thank you! im more looking to avoid buying a capture card simply because of price but i was thinking an HDMI female to a 12 ish terminal ribbon cable converter would work and then i can use the capture card i already have.
