Dan, I am shattered for you! Think on the bright side, it'll be easier second time round! enjoy the holiday. If you are lke me it will be hard to get back into it when you get back. I just want to finish it now. Have not done anything about buttons. Will be waiting for the cable to arrive.
Had a problem today. No green channel on startup this morning. Saw green still there on the monitor menu, so did a factory reset, fixed the colour, Now the 800x600 output won't scale properly. It scaled it to be a square picture. So I am going to try to get the monitor into 800x480 mode tonight based on the link on the Xenarc web site..
Not sure if the skin contorls for brightnes will be enough. The RR gamma (day/Night) is definitely not a big enough step to make any difference
