  • LinITX Auto On?

    Apologies if this has been coverd, I couldnt find anything on it.

    After reading Gary's review of the LinITX screen:

    http://www.mp3carisma.com/main.php?id=linitx7screen

    I am seriously considering going for one insted of the lilliput. The only issue I can see with it is the fact it doesnt do "Auto On" I know the lilliput does this with a mod.

    Has anyone managed to do the same for a LinITX screen?

    Case:
    Installed in an old NTL box, (best thing for it)

    Screen:
    LinITX 7"

    Just had a thought.

    If the power on button is just a switch??

    Would it be possible to create a system that just shorts the connections on startup or even use the pc power on pins from the M1-ATX?

    Can anyone comment?

    ScouseMonkey has pointed out to me that they are currently working on an updated version which has an auto on facility.

      there is a lilliput mod using a capacitor to fake press the button. the linITX will be jsut a switch. If you don't want to hack the screen maybe you can hack the remote and use the on/off button on that connected up to something to turn it on.

        i'm thinking of getting an ir transmitter and using girder to send the ir code to turn the monitor on when my pc is started up. this way i dont have to hack any hardware.

            Is there any place state side to get the screen? The price is nice, but the added $50 in shipping kinda ruins the whole appeal.

                I have been reading that they are not the same... People tell me to search, I go and search for hours on end, and end up with 20 different answers.

                I have read that the tview is dim, and people should get the lilliput over the tview. In other threads, people say the linitx is comprable to the xenarc, both of which are superior to the lilliput. I don't know about you, but that doesn't make sense to me.

                    Thje latest T-view (like the cartft and linITX), the liliput and the latest Xenarc are all 400nit brightness. Jus tmake sure you get the latest ones. If in dount, find someone who uses the model you are after and check were they got it from.

                    They differ in glare (due to touchscreen coating ont he Xenarc),
                    yellowness (see the review on the linITX by confused)
                    and some specs - go read and

                      what kind of relay did you use, where did you get it? i have the same psu and screen and would be interested in doing a similar mod. did you wire it right into the circuit board of the screen?

                        ill do a write up later today with photos. the cables that go to the switch i extended and connected the relay to i think wire 4 and 5 ill verify that later when i take pics. i dont have the switch panel conected at all, and i have had no problems.

                        I got to go install a new head light wiring harness so ill get photos of the auto on after that.

                            Well I started with the constant to momentary circuit, then I connected the relay to the Amp turn on, on the M1-ATX, then the other part of the relay is connected to my power switch wires on my screen it was 4 and 5, so in the circuit top, the blue and red wire to the right go to the power switch, and the red and white to the left go to the M1-ATX.

                            ANd i dont even have the switch circuit connected at all and its been runing fine.
