My ideal usage would be to use the hdmi input to feed audio and video, and then use the header to pipe the audio out to an amplifier. Is anyone doing this and is a $20 line output converter sufficient?

    Or better yet does the circuit board have a line level output hidden on it anywhere?

    Intended use is with a raspberry, and while I could just get a usb sound card, it would be a simpler project (less software the raspberry has to worry about) if I could use the lcd panel's output.
    You are right, HDMI version has same audio output as the VGA version. For USB DAC sound card, under Pi, driver is what you need to worry about

On top of that, do you utilize a smaller VGA cable? I believe from the back panel of the motherboard to the VGA input for the screen you would need a cable, the standard one is typically 1m + , so we would have a really long cable to go maybe 5-10cm?

    Thanks in advance.
    You can mount the HDD and PSU on the top of the case (we have the DC-DC PSU for $50)

    for the VGA cable, you can get the short one on ebay. usually people goes by HDMI more which will be easier.

    - using HDMI
    - Intel HD2000 on board graphics with latest drivers
    - Created 800x480, 32 bit @ 60hz custom res
    - set this res via advanced settings
    - the monitor refreshes with smaller screen (see pic)
    - notification that optimal resolution is 1280x720 (see pic)
    - osd of screen says 720p (see pic)

    If you have any idea what to do I'd appreciate it

    Cheers, James

    Hi, you can google "800*480 driver" with your video card model. you should get the mod driver

    if you still can not solve the problem. let us know.

    Also, I too cannot create a working 800x480 driver for this touchscreen, it only detects at 800x600. Any tips?



    Thanks,

    Thanks for sharing

    here is the driver download link for the left side keys: www.8838.com/soft/usb_hid_rar

    for the 800*480, same story. just google "800*480 driver" with your video card model. you should be able to get one. keep in touch and have a nice day!

    Hello Derrick,

    Could you please post detailed external and internal dimensions of the bezel and full enclosure? A bit concerned since many people are facing mounting issues.
    Also need to know how much raised is the motherboard standoff from the 2DIN base since my motherboard (Kontron 886) has a CF slot at the bottom which interferes with generic cases like VoomPC.

    Hi Derrick, can you repost the left side keys driver link, that one is a 404 error.

    Thanks,
    Robert
