    We will ship internationally, but you will have to pay VAT and the shipping...

    The overall weight is pretty light, so the shipping costs shouldn't be any different than what you would expect to pay for anything else shipped from the states to the EU.

    is it possibler to make it so the user can choose between the LEDs being active or inactive. Just thinking it might get annoying with the lights if your trying to hide it somewhere under the dash... But i like the idea of LEDs for debugging

    no, you have a great point...


    it's just that the trouble is the resistance value should change based on the number of LEDs per channel.... so what would we design it for? 1 LED? 2? 3?

    Does that make sense? It just seems like a feature that is limited in scope. Again though, we'll think about it.

    great idea, and it should be settable with a jumper. how's that sound?

    I was just thinking, this could be used to solve the lilliput rear view cam auto-switch problem rather than using a stand alone pic system?

    Connect the reverse light wire to one of the inputs. When that becomes active, send a pulse (quick power on then off) to one of the outputs which is wired to the source switch button on the lilli. When the reverse light signal is lost, send two more pusles to get back to vga mode.

    Is there any reason that wouldn't work? Can the software be customised to do this?

    I haven't had an opportunity to test anything like this, and I may not be the best person to answer this question but from what I can tell from the hardware and the software it seems like it can and will work. I will let greenman100 or 2k1Toaster answer that for sure.

    That is very easy and is already pretty much in our software. So yes, it can happen, no problem.

    Yes this will be something that can be done fairly easily.
