  • Power Screen?

    Do i have to slice the power cable of the screen and hook it up to the p1900's Secondary power connection or is there another way I'm not seeing? I've read and read and no one talks about how to actually power the screen.

    Cut it and hook it up to the P1900. If that gives you chills, get a molex connector and put it in line so you can still use it from the regular power supply one day.

        Can you be more specific as to what kind of molex connector? (Read: link please?)

          here

          You'll need a male/female pair.

          Cut the cigaretted lighter. That's what I did to save the AC power supply.

            don't need to cut

            I have the 1020tsv. It has a cigarette lighter plug. I just wired a cigarette plug receiver to the p1900 so I wouldn't have to cut the original cable from the screen. Not that it's a big deal or anything.
