    Display Issue

    Hi; I'm presently constructing a car computer. As now, all is good exept for 1 thing, I bought a lilliput tv tuner lcd with rca input only (no touchscreen) I should have buy touchscreen but in these time I had no idea I would have car pc in my car. Is anybody here can tell me what to do?

    Ex: I know that there is USB finger mouses, and mini keyboard ??
    The vga input on the lilliput screen is not there so I can buy some VGA TO RCA CONVERTER?

    but is there any more easy solution ? just for the time I buy new expensive screen Thx

    You can buy a touchscreen separately. You need both a touchscreen and a USB touchscreen controller. These are often sold together. You can find them on Ebay.

    Converting your VGA output to RCA will make make text look fuzzy. RCA is much lower resolution than VGA and while it can and does work, the quality is poor unless you use specific color schemes and larger font sizes on a low resolution desktop.

    Dump the screen and buy a VGA touchscreen. They are between $150 and $200 new on eBay.

    Spending $50 on the overlay, and $50 for the controller to upgrade your crappy RCA only screen doesnt seem worth it when you can just buy a screen with an integrated controller, touch overlay, and VGA resolution in 1 package for $50 more... Sell your screen for anything over $50, and you come out ahead./
