I connected this screen to my laptop using vga cable. How do I setup resolutions? I will use this laptop for carpc. Do I choose dual monitors,or just this lcd? I am using win xp. I tried to setup custom resolution in powerstrip, but did something wrong cant change it anymore.
Also, a little leak about our new project: HTPC, for Home Entertainment System, like connecting TV
dims: 240mm width * 125mm height * 250mm dept.
Again, advice welcome as always. LoL
Wish everyone a wonderful weekend!

Are you guys still selling the original case for the screens? I think it was version one. I bought one about 6 months ago and I'm going to be getting another one soon and I want to make sure the cases/surrounds match cause I'll be using them for head rest monitors.
The 2 DIN case is coming along nicely!!!
I have a couple of HTPCs at home and I see very little value in adding a small screen to the HTPC case.
During video playback, I prefer not to have any bright light source other than the main screen in my view path. I've even masked the HDD and power LED's of my HTPCs to avoid visual distraction.
However one advantage which I can think of is during music playback wherein you can select songs through the small screen instead of switching on the big LCD screen/projector. Any other uses?
BTW.. I don't see an IR remote sensor provision on the HTPC case mock-up. Or are you planning to incorporate RF/WiFi Remote?
On the HW/SW configuration front, please ensure that you support HD Audio Bitstreaming (via HDMI) and a Gigabit LAN port at the bare minimum. USB3 and eSATA ports would be nice to have.
