 so that's 2 dead-ends... so far.

 keep going, ron.  you'll only really start to understand how
difficult this really is only by persisting until you *succeed* in
finding what you want.  or trying a different tack.  or several.
until you succeed.

 and this is just one component out of the dozens that you'll need to
source in order to complete the proposed conversion of *one used

 i believe the record so far for finding the correct (suitable) part
for the EOMA68-A20 stands at five years.  it's the mid-mount
micro-hdmi (type D) connector.  JAE DC3 series.

 ... are you beginning to get an appreciation for the perspective
that, from an ecological standpoint, spending the time and energy on
"converting" pre-existing mass-volume-designed products is an
extraordinarily wasteful use of our planet's resources?

 this was the main unspoken message of that ted talk "how i made a $3
toaster for $1800 and took a year to do it".
