    I posted earlier that I had the display working, however, every time I shutdown it would come back with the split screen.

    I bought an Arcade VGA card as bob^ suggested and it works a treat.

    I now get the startup screen (no big deal but I am looking forward to making a custom screen)

    and for the first time I can actually work in Bios on the carputer screen (don't ask me how I had to do it before)

    I am using Winamp to play music and DVD's with no dedicated Front End as such. The 640x480 screen resolution sorta screws that idea



    If anyone out there is trying to put a carputer into a BA or BF Falcon - GET THE ARCADE VGA CARD. You won't regret it.

    roadrunner will resize the skin acording to ur screen size.
    each skin has a general.ini file, in that it has the skins actual size and the size of your screen resolution..

    by the way, it looks really good..
    thought about putting a touch screen overlay on it?

    I've been looking at this unit - mainly for a Lilliput or other carpc with vga only.

    http://www.grand.com.tw/products_pctotv_handview.html

    The thing has NTSC RGB output via SCart (I asked them directly) and I've seen it for sale for as little as $60AUD before shipping.

    With NTSC RGB you can plug it straight into the Video-In plug up behind the tissue box on Colour LCD screens in the BA.

    Hey guys just wondering how you went with setting up a carputer on the Ba falcon screen. What Arcadevga card did you use? Can I get a few pics of your setups. Also I really like the look of a Mac Mini is any of this passable with that?

    @ Wilko: Yopur motherboard will determine if you need the VGA or PCI-Express card. I have a new PCI-Ex[ress one lying about, but it worked well when tested with the factory Ford color TFT LCD.

    MacMini works fine, but not on the factory LCD - graphics electrical interface incompatible.

    Either go Macmini and aftermarket LCD, or go factory color, and get a motherboard that will support the ArcadeVGA PCIExpress card - one that works is the Commell LV-677, Synrax in Australia have them......they're quite expensive, there are chea[er alternatives, but I prefer the Commells.

    Enjoy.
