  • SP-716: AM/FM radio?

    I couldn't find anything on it in my manual, but if you look on the front LCD pannel there is an AM/FM light. Is there a way to get radio thru this touchscreen? I can't imagine there would be since the only antenna input I see is for a TV Tuner antenna. Are they one and the same, except just poorly labled by the manufacturer in hongkong?

    I would assume that the FM is a for future upgrade/model. I just got my screen the other day. AM lights up in conjunction with the clock and then goes to FM when the time comes.

          Back on topic, I'm inpressed with the screen. The only things that I do not like is the fact that there in no AUDIO input (even for the RCAs) and there is no SVIDEO input so that means I won't
          be able to easily hook up an Xbox or PS2 in the car to this screen. Video would be okay but sound would have to be routed through the PC or amps. I'm also thinking about disconnecting the lights and display on the lower portion of the screen. Some buttons are brighter than others because of the placement of the LEDs I assume and the LED display has to be looked at straight on to see the time. Else it will appear as 88:88. Screen, touch capability and its motorized ability are on point, IMO.
