    Lilliput +cheap +composite

    I am looking at interfacing an LCD screen with this device: http://www.dansdata.com/twintv.htm Which is a Famous Technology Twin TV storage device. There are many reasons I have chosen this device, but not enough time to go into them now. I will be using this device to play MP3s and far less frequently video.

    I am intrigued by the Lilliput offerings because they are fully built rather than something like a Unipac screen which would require some sort of mounting in the car. I want the screen to be somewhat removable so I can use an AC adapter to play files from the Twin TV whilst outside of the car and with no TV.

    I have spied the following screen which I think would be an ok unit for what I need.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14946

    But the screen must be able to display the following sort of screen in a readable way so I can browse the Twin TV.


    So is the above screen ok for this application in your opinion? I know that a VGA compatible LCD would produce more accurate results but I don't have a VGA port on the Twin TV nor do I really have the cash.

    Besides if the car gets broken into I don't want to lose too much in one swoop!

    By the way the above eBay screen mentioned is a Lilliput 229GL-72N just incase the auction disappears for some reason.

    Does anyone have one of these? Any comments?

    Thanks,
    Simon

    It looks like an STN screen. Those are evil. You want to get an active matrix LCD (TFT).

    Yeah I knew someone would post something similar to that. What I am trying to find out is if it would be enough to run this device. I can't find any TFTs on eBay.com.au or anywhere in Australia for that matter (JayCar excepted, but I don't want to pay $500AUD). I don't really want to spend more than $200AUD.

    It's just fine for playing mp3s and displaying JPEGs. But the video is going to be horrible.

    After losing an auction I decided to go for one of these: [Aus] Unipac LCD, Any good?

    For the cash they seem quite good.

    That menu looks like the same as on an APEX dvd player.

    Good spotting. It is in fact the menu system that is used on some cheap DVD players.
