    The video cable from the screen to the board appears to be a 40-pin FFC (Flexible Flat Cable), most likely 0.5mm pitch. If that is the case, for $20 USD you can buy an extension board and cable. http://diy-beamer.com/product_info.p...1391502847b561
    Thanks for your understanding for price raise. HDMI board is little expensive than the previous VGA one. We are doing everything we can to keep the price low, especially for friends on mp3car

    by the way, why we need the extension? can`t we just put the board behind the screen? that is what we plan to do

    Sorry for the late reply

    The 4 pins is for the touch-screen and the 6 pins is for the back light. If you change to capacitive touch panel, You have to use another control module for capacitive because it is different as resistive.

    For the cable length, we suggest you just set the board behind the screen. You don`t need to use the extension cable.

    If the seller or TFT wanted to be really, really awesome. Sell versions with longer ribbons or sell a extension kit for the ribbons for both the resistive and capacitive versions of the screen. I would buy that for sure because I am really worried about how short that ribbon cable is and me damaging it trying to mount the board. And it will also keep me from having to mount the board at an incredibly awkward angle inside my double din enclosure. Pretty please??

You can tell certain elements are community inspired... like the length of the wires connecting the button board to the controller and the length of the ribbon cabling. I'm going to give it a rundown for the next few days and post it up with comparison to the lilliput (669HB/659SAW) and mini-touch. Thanks again Derrick.
    You are very welcome. If there is anything else we can help, please feel free to contact us at anytime

    Hi, the new board is designed for wide range volt input, since it design for car use

    It can accept 8V~ 20V Volt, and total around 20W will be safe. 12V is good enough.

    Does the touchscreen need any drivers? I connected it on Win XP and it seem to have recognized and installed the device but the touchscreen function does not work.
    Hi, you can change the resolution, either custom setting in windows or by Powerstrip software

    Here is the link for the touch screen driver if you need:

    Yes the touchscreen does require drivers. You will need to find out what touch controller it uses. The lilliput I got has an egalax controller, if I am not mistaken. You may need to plug in a USB from the touch controller/monitor to the computer, if you haven't done so already.

    Sorry for all the mess you have. That is a big reason we develop the new HDMI board which eliminate most of the problems like touch screen

    Now the major issue should be the capacitive touch. We may work out a solution later.

    I received my display almost two weeks ago (quick shipment, it hit the US two days earlier than promised, although I then lost a day due to having to sign for it) and stuffed it in the car and went on a 10 day trip. I temporarily mounted it in a Lilliput frame I had, and that helped out the quick and dirty mount I did. After getting back to town I do have some complaints:
    • (As otherwise mentioned) the old VGA version is really a hack. It has a controller card with connections for an LCD that are not used, but has a daughter card with more components grafted on to it. The cables go from that card to the display, but the flex cable is also a hack. It has a wide spot on it with active components which make it difficult to tuck the controller card behind the display. It's the type of thing I'd expect to see in the lab as a prototype, but not the type of thing I'd expect end users to get.
    • Drivers disk sucks. The drivers on the included disk are dated no newer than 2007, so don't include Windows 7 drivers, and are labeled in Chinese. Derrick immediately offered to find the Win7 driver for me when I emailed about not being able to read the directory entries, but I was able to locate them myself by trail-installing a few things (and failing), then going to the web page that matched the driver name. (Go here: http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalax...r/W7Driver.htm)
    • No case: I knew this upfront of course, but not having a case at all does make mounting harder. No easy way to hold the display and controller boards, and no place to put the buttons board. With the tiny flex cables, I was very concerned I'd break something (as I think I did to my Lilliput screen).
    • Resistive touch screens suck. It makes the display look a little milky and no multi-touch (zoom is a PITA), really a downer when you are used to an iPad.
    • Touch pad and drivers are not 100%: I've had a few times when it powered up and Windows 7 refused to recognize the panel. When I rebooted it was fine, but it is impossible to reboot unless you carry around a spare keyboard (which I did). Crawling in to the trunk to unplug/replug the USB might have worked too, I'll try that next time.
    • Not really sunlight readable. Maybe if you are close to it, but not when you are driving down the road and trying to read the NAV. I had to take off my sunglasses and lean in to read it many times, and I still have 20/20 vision. It is better than my old Lilliput, but IMHO, not good enough.
    • You may have to really muck around with the video driver to get your system to do 800x480 at 57 hz. I did, and it was not very easy. I could not get the display to work well at 1024x768 which is what I really wanted.


    I do want to say that Derrick is very responsive and great to work with. I am having an issue with the LCD washing out the blue color in to the adjacent pixels, and I suspect he ran down the issue (dirty pins on the ribbon cable). I'll know for sure when I can pull it out and clean it off.

    So in summary, go for the capacitive touch screen on the HDMI board. Don't even consider the original, unless you were desperate for something before a big trip as I was.

    And as for Centrafuse, I've got a whole other list of complaints for it.

    I need an extension because I am mounting the screen into a cage like this and the wire isnt long enough to go as far as I need it to
