      You are getting another unit, correct? Could you tell me the dimensions of the case and if you found a better place to buy from than the link I posted.

      Thanks.

        i havent got exacly the same as youres so i dont know if telling the dimensions is going to help.
        i did "inspect" mine on the inside and the screen module is aprox 12 x 10 cm and with the print behind it it is aprox 3 cm deep.
        better convert these sizes to inches yourself before i screw up
        mine version the screen was easy to take out of the original case to mount in a headrest or something.

        ps i cant beat that price, in europe these ****ers are expensive !

          By reading your post it seems that you are inputing a NTSC signal into the LCD and he doesnīt support NTSC, only PAL. Had a similiar problem, not with LCDīs, but with a television.

              allmost right.
              its the other way around.
              a pal signal which i am putting into a ntsc screen.
              the screen is suppost to handle both signals but the switch only stops the screen from "rolling" does not display in colour.
              tried 2 video cards but no luck.
              i can get one of the cards to output in colour ntsc but then i have 0.5" borders around my screen and only 4 " is viewable.

              sucky !

                Hi Gerard_NL, Always nice to meet some other people from the netherlands in here.

                I maybe got some information, although it doesn't apply directly to your problem.

                The switch you mentioned is definetly for the PAL/NTSC change. (It has someting to do with the horiz.scan.lines.. I believe PAL has 255, and NTSC Only 200, also with the refresh rate PAL(50Hz) and NTSC(60Hz)).
                (discovered this using a 32-bit amiga and a PAL/NTSC Monitor... screen would role on a normal PAL TV.

                Remember when the First Nintendo 8-bit (Mario) computer where getting really popular. Very soon some companies started to make some 'copy-boxes' for the Nintendo's. This way you could easily copy the game-rom's onto normal floppy disks, load them, and play'em.

                But there was a problem with The French games (and I believe, also the Japanese)
                Because they where designed for the 'SECAM' system (almost similar to the PAL-system). And when you wanted to play these French games, you could only play it BW.

                There was something like:
                When you put SECAM-system into PAL display, the screen only is Black & White, Then,
                When you put PAL-system on SECAM display,
                the screen only is Black & White.


                Again, this maybe lost track from your problem, but 'maybe' this is an explanation for your problem..

                Good Luck !

                  Hi marc, indeed nice to meet a fellow "lotgenoot" !
                  i think you might be right about this secam story, the image stops roling over the screen but isnt colour.
                  anyway i found a solution to the black borders thing.
                  its a program called tvtool, it can stretch your image beyond screen properties if you want.
                  i use it in ntsc output and now it finally works on my ntsc sreen

                  WHOOO WHOOO. now onto the next stage, the in-car implimentation.

                      its a program called tvtool
                      I believe that program only works with nvidia video cards. I'm still looking for one that works on ATI AIW cards.

                        Maveric: Youīre right... Itīs meant for NVidea TNT /TNT2 /Geforce /Geforce2 Chipsets only. I think i saw on a site another prog that could do overscan on a variety of Video cards, Iīll try to find it tonigh, no promisses...
