    Please excuse me if this is a stupid question but I have seen on several data sheets where it looks like the pins are connected together for the video output and I was wondering if this is a misunderstanding or if this is how they are really connected to a microcontroller. Here is an example of what I mean on page 113 where the output shows P[0:7]

    I appreciate any help you can give me in understanding this better.

    welcome to the forums :)

    they are not tied together electrically.
    that is showing that they are grouped together and go on to where ever those 8 data lines are then connected to ... just imagine those 8 data wires bunched together with cable ties around them etc :)
    its just an easy way to show a set of lines between 2 places by only drawing one thicker line on the schematic ... makes it look tidier
