I don't know specifically about the Via board, but for most boards you should be able to send a different video signal to each display.. especially if you're using some form of Windows XP - it has great multi-monitor support.Originally Posted by extremis
As for the LCD, are you SURE that's an LVDS LCD?
It very well could be a TTL/CMOS style signalling, and not LVDS.
If it's LVDS, how far is the LCD going to be from the motherboard?
LVDS cabling can have some cable length limitations if it's not done right (ie, shielding, etc).
Where are you getting the display cable from?
I'm looking into making a cable.. I ordered a few sample connectors from Digikey.
I'm glad to hear of another person with a WRX.. mine's a 2003 WRX Wagon.
Where are you planning on putting the LCD panel(s) and the computer?
I'm planning on putting an 8.4" 800x600 LVDS LCD in my center console where the radio is, and the computer up in the gauge pod housing where the clock is.
The LCD is just the right width for the double-din radio opening, but it's about 2cm too tall, so I'm going to have to rebuild/resculpt the console and lose the cup holder..
The 2005 WRX console is different from the 2003/2004 models, isn't it?
