    I am assuming you have not bought a transflective , optically bonded, high brightness, ag touchscreen have you?

    You get what you pay for.

    And I work on automobiles at 14 car lots. There are several car manufacturers that have sunlight readable near perfect touchscreens now. The Dodge Challenger I fixed this week has an awesome 8" that I would sell a firstborn to have in my car. It is beautiful from all angles in all sunlight.
    Should I also pay 700$ to know that?
    I know what I would get so I don't pay for it.
    Yes they are more readable and it is not my like.
    I know what we are talking about.

    Great review. Do you happen to have a link to the digikey part you bought to extend the cable?

    Regarding your issue with color shifts, is this evident only when starting Windows or when resuming from hibernate? Since your ASRock board has both HDMI and DVI, have you tried using a DVI to HDMI converter and run that instead? It might be that Windows is not playing well with HDMI.

    Is it possible to hide all the OSD overlays and text? I'm very curious about this (especially during initial power on and when switching inputs).

    And finally, is the capacitive option worth the extra $100?

    Yes spend $700 and then you will see that there are sunlight readable screens on the market.

    If you've never seen one in person you do not know what you are talking about.

    Mechanical dimensions of the hdmi board

    Can somebody share the physical dimensions of the hdmi board? I asked the seller if there was a drawing and he responded he did not have one.

    Also, can somebody chime in on how to take the touch panel off? I am using two screens for rear seat passengers and the touch screens won't be needed.

    Thanks
    Tboy

    Fair enough, but i still cant even process the thought of spending $700 on a screen for my car. I spent less than that on a 30" dell for my PC lol. Anyway, can anyone direct me to power options for the screen?

    Please use the "DVI" channel when you connecting to computer. The "HDMI" channel is special tune for camera use

    regarding to the resolution, please try the powerstrip software and see if the problem solved.

    If you still have questions, please feel free to email us at [email protected]

    enjoy and have a beautiful night

The extension cables were a pretty tight fit, but with some sanding of both the ribbon cable and the LCD screen cable it will fit. The 6 pin was a lot easier to fit the the 40pin was.

    Today I spent all day putting my new ASrock e350m1/USB3 motherboard into my carpc and reformatting the hard drive. Screen looks good, its very bright and much sharper then my old screen was. I didnt get a chance to test it out in the sunlight yet though.

    I am using the HDMI out on my motherboard to feed into this screen. However I didn't realize that for 90% of the boot process the HDMI out is disabled. As well as anytime you are in DOS, such as when installing windows. I had to plug another display into the DVI port so I could reformat the hard drive.

    However two problems I have with it.

    1) When its booting, even though there should be no output to the HDMI port, it will do this weird color shift where it will glow red, then slowly change to glowing white, then will turn black again before it starts showing windows. This always happens when, on the DVI screen, it says "Starting windows" (This is on Windows 7) with the twirling colored orbs that form the windows logo. Really dont like this. This is probably not the screens fault, but does anyone have suggestions on a fix?

    2) In an effort to get to the elusive 800x480 resolution I first tried installing the latest drivers for my onboard ATI 6310 but the lowest it could go was 800x600. So I installed powerstrip and with that was able to set the display to output 800x480. But even at 800x480 the screen does not fill the LCD viewing area, There is a 1" black bar above and below the image and the left side appears cutoff a tiny bit. This is throwing off all my touchscreen presses because it is basing it off the 7" screen size and so I have to imagine the screen fills the whole LCD and where the button should be located and press there. I cannot find any resolutions that fill the whole LCD viewing area, although several are closer then 800x480. I also checked the OSD of the LCD to see if I could expand the screen vertically to make it fit, but that option was not available, I could only move the screen, not shrink/expand it. Any Help??

    Hi, if I understand right. You are asking the power input about this screen, right? It require 2W total, but wide range volt, from 8V~ 20V. Your car power should be enough

    Here is the 8" versions of the cables

    40pin .5mm
    http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...6-ND&x=19&y=20

    I just ordered the 8" version cables and connectors since I wanted to make sure I had enough cable length and it ended up being just long enough.

    I havnt tried hibernating it yet. But the color shift seems to have gone away on its own with the new motherboard drivers. I just ordered a DVI->HDMI converter (best buy wanted $40 for it, so I had to get it on newegg) so I can tell you if you can use DVI for it in a few days. The OSD is hidden when switching resolutions, but says "no signal" as its booting up before it recieves the HDMI imput when it gets into windows, but the DVI converter will probably fix this.

    I am using powerstrip already, but I think it might not be working over the HDMI out, hopefully the DVI converter I just bought fixes the issue.
    What can I say, I love Volvos:
    Volvo 740 with 5.0 mustang conversion (totaled)
    Volvo 740 stock (sold)
    Volvo 940se (sold)
    Volvo 850 T-5R yellow (sold)
    Volvo S70 T5SE
    Volvo C70
    Volvo 850R with a long list of mods

    No idea what screen that is or how much it cost. I have no idea what laptop that is or how much it cost.

    My guess is that you did not get the right screen or it is not the optically bonded one.
