    These screens are nice and colorful, but are (in real world useage) completely washed out in the afternoon sun, and nothing can be discerned on them at all (my viewing angle is almost purely diagonal at 45 degrees, and the sun come in from 45 degrees to the other side though) on my trip home from work. I would not call them sunlight viewable. If you shade them in daylight, they are just fine, but I drive home with the afternoon sun beating down on my screen, so I am thankful for steering wheel controls.

    As far as the 2 rightside buttons go, the top one toggles inputs, and the next one down toggles 4 intensity levels, at least that is what they do on the HDMI model I have that came with the double din case. I'm actually looking around for my next screen now. I want a larger and brighter screen. The resistive touch panel included with these screens works great as a mouse pointer, but not so productive with windows 8, as you cannot drag the screens. You need a mouse for that function.

    To be fair, the resolution is great, and so far my screen has performed flawlessly.

    Have you got yours running 800x480?

    I've tried every configuration i can find and i still can't get the monitor to recognise the display mode as 800x480. It either detects them as 640x480 and they stretch off the screen or 800x600 and i end up with a letterbox effect.

    Derrick - How much is it for the newer smaller HDMI controller and does it work with the older lcds that you sold? I ordered mine last year.

    And that was exactly my point. These LCD panels were designed for DSLR camera monitors. NOT sunlight readable displays for automotive use.
    Sure, they look good, great colors, etc. You can thank Samsung for that. They do build quality panels Unfortunately, this series of panels were designed for simple, low cost applications such as digital picture frames, kiosks,
    video playback, etc. Not for the car.

    I did get mine working at 800x480 after downloading graphice drivers for an HP laptop that has the same chipset as mine has, but I have it set for 1280 x 768 resolution so I can get some of the windows 8 stuff to work.

    I am going to post this in the F/S section, but if anyone is interested, I am going forward with a different display, and am selling my transreflective 7" screen from Derrick.NY on eBay. Asking price is $35, plus $4 shipping. Of course you are welcome to bid on it as well.

    Older Version of the Control Board + Button Board

    All systems are a go...

    Hi,
    I'm trying to get the VGA only version working on a D510MO intel motherboard on win7.
    I know it's not supposed to work, but with intel drivers and DTD calculator I seem to be have to inject a new 800x480 resolution.
    Problem is the timing I grabbed here and there are all just plain wrong.
    Since people running the HDMI version are provided valid EDID, maybe someone could post the EDID (I think powerstrip can do that) and maybe I could reverse them to actual timing information.
    Or maybe someone as the correct timing info, who knows....
    Thanks.

    Note: maybe it's already been done but couldn't find anything significant in this enormous thread.

    I am having trouble with some overscan issues on the new, smaller lcd controller. I am using this in conjunction with a capactive touchscreen and controller.

    I have Netgear PTV-3000 Miracast wireless video adapter. It allows me to mirror the video from my phone to the device which shows it on the screen via hdmi. I have tested this on 2 TVs and it worked fine once I set aspect ration to Auto from 16:9. Howerver, on my 7" LCD I am getting overscan issues and the picture is not quite fitting the screen regardless of whether or not I set it to Auto of 16:9.

    Since this works on two other TVs, I think the issue lies in the LCD controller. If you view this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RrHkDGyNw0, and go to about 3:45 you will see what I mean.

    Is there anyway to get this LCD controller to properly show the content and fix the overscan issue?

    I totally agree with this, so has anyone found something better which is actually sunlight readable for car use?
