I see that the new Lilliput have both HDMI and VGA/DVI connector. Which is the best way to connect to the computer? Since now most modern graphic card and motherboard have a HDMI output port.
VGA is analog which means colors are drawn across each raster at a specific speed which may not line up with an LCD pixel exactly.
HDMI is basically the same as single channel DVI and HDMI 1.3 is capable of using the full colorspace like DVI. They are digital which means every pixel goes where it's supposed to and is the color it's supposed to be.
Here are the specs for the Lilliput 669GL-70NP/C/T-5HB which I am planning to use:
Video system: PAL/NTSC
2 Video inputs plus 1 Audio input, input signal: composite video
1 VGA input (15-pin D-sub), Input signal: Analog VGA signal
1 HDMI or DVI input
5 wire resistive Touch screen, USB interface
IR remote control
Full function OSD control (Multi-language)
Audio output: Speaker built-in
Wire for auto switching to backup camera
Car 12V adapter
VGA / USB 2-in-1cable (VGA for PC signal and USB for touch screen monitor control)
HDMI to DVI adapter
A/V cable (RCA)
Remote control with battery
Installation CD (driver and software for touch screen)
So in this case I would use the HDMI port coming from the screen and just use the included adapter to connect to my graphic card on the DVI port?
Or I can use this cable to connect from the HDMI port on the screen directly to the DVI port on the graphic card and won't need the adapter:
you wont be disappointed with the screen i've got one i'm testing now. Its great! HDMI/DVI allows for less noise to be picked up in the cables and gets rid of the ghosting that ALL of my lilliputs seem to have had at some point. My review for the screen will be on the homepage tomorrow if you want to check it out.
I think I understand now. So this cable is included, all you have to do is buy an extension DVI cable and connect to your computer. Do you also have to connect the USB cable to get the touch functionality if you use the HDMI to DVI?
that screen.... want.

Thanks man, I might give you a call during my installation. Not sure when is our next meet, hopefully I will have everything ready by then
We don't really have one planned for October yet. I better get on that I guess cause it'll probably end up being the last one of the year
