    Then again, a button to black out the LCD, that's a good thought, press it once, blackout, press and hold, adjust brightness.
    I agree that menu controls could be on a remote, just don't lose it.

    Absolutely need to be able to switch video inputs, this should not be only accessible via a remote.

    Again, buttons are tricky, you need some to control the LCD (source) , some to control the PC (power, volume) and you can't really have them share.
    Our plan is, left side for customize keys, and the right side for hardware control for the monitor

    power button - for PC power on/off

    input button - for LCD control - single press goes through different sources, have a 'source' with no input for a blank screen - press and hold to adjust brightness

    rotary knob with click - for PC control, would look like a mouse to the PC

    That's it!
    Yes, it will works almost like that, only lack the knob

    I also like Hdale85's suggestion of an IR remote. These come bundled with a lot of small LCD screens, and could be used for the LCD adjustment type tasks that you rarely need to perform. Skip it if it's going to significantly increase cost though.
    We will try our best to put a remote with this monitor, if the space is not a problem

A multi-purpose rotating knob would be more useful to me than front facing USB/SD/AUX inputs. These could all be moved to the back and let the user run cable wherever they want.

    With a knob with click push, you can control a lot of things. Besides the usual volume up/down/mute, you could click hold to bring up a new set of menu options - Equalizer, Input settings, LCD control for example. Then use the knob as left/right or up/down and click select. Brings up your eq/lcd settings and so on, you get the idea. It's very intuitive vs trying to cram several single use buttons where they normally wouldn't make sense. This is the way BMW & Lexus (and prob others) are going - more features, less buttons.
    You are right, but we will work our best to fulfill as many people as we can

    This monitor is also trying to fit as much car as possible, and a knob can not in this layout because of the space...sorry

    Here should be the final product

    We are adding the remote, should not be a problem. The right side still keep 2 hardware control buttons for the monitor.

    One for power switch, with channel switch by holding 2 sec, it will switch to another channel by loop.

    another one for back-light control.

    looking awsome!

    just hope that the 3.5 jack is some kind of aux input as putting a mic input in there seems just weird for me.

    also, will the lcd that comes with this case be the one that displays no OSD when changing inputs?

    Yes, it is a Aux Input, not a mic input

    The power button also work as "channel switch" hot key. When you hold it for 2 sec, it will switch to another channel by loop.
