    P.S. Great work on your install, those pics have given me the impetus to get my project moving.
    Those BMW pics with the DVD in the headliner did that for me! Post pics!

    lol, once it's off the bench and I've gotten a car worth putting it in (about 3 months now) I'll be up there in the projects section.

    Then I've got the joys of fibreglassing...

    so is the remote not usable when you have the power button mashed in permanently? i know it disables the PCB (or turns everything into a power button) hope that can be cleared up for me.. thanks

    Thinking of geeting rid of my Lillipt buttons too so can mount flush up behind my aluminum panel. But surley you need the OSD buttons too fiddle with stuff, my screen seems to like being auto tuned every so often????
    Also I was planning on leaving the power button as is with a permanent connection as the screen turns 'off' when pc does and on again when PC boots, I know it is officially 'on' (or standby i gues) with the green LED but actuall screen isnt and current draw is very low. (?)

    that is my understanding ... i haven't tried it myself tho so best thing to do would be try and see. just hold in the power button ... plug it in ... then try to use the remote.

    i'd try it on mine but i'm currently unable to.

    you'd think so but not really. current draw is about 500ma when on, 250 when in 'standby' ... and almost 0 when off (red led)

    the screen uses significant power when left on when the vga signal is removed.

    Tried last night, remote works still. Obviusly I can use the remote for the same stuff the the buttons can contol on the OSD . How stupid am I! So yeah with power button fixed together all buttons become power buttons, screen will turn on and off as power is connected and disconected, remote still works for all functions incl power on and off.
    I am so going to hack all butoons off now and extend th IR reciever on flying lead to mount above screen. Sweet.

    yeah that was my next question ... i think the IR receiver is on the same board as the buttons? do you plan on taking this off and just running leads back to the board?

    Notch,

    Do you have any pictures of how you disassembled the Lilliput? Can you post some? Any difficulties?

    shakes, yeah it has 3 pins/legs going to board, just going to unsolder and put on flying lead, dont see any problems with this. If it doesnt like it i will just put it back!

    Mike, No no pics but basically unscrew the 4 screws and pull apart, be gentle and the are 4 snap fit lugs which need to be relaesed. Other than that very easy. I have only had a look myself, not committing to hacking bits off till i have made my facia etc. Will take some pics whenn i do the full on strip down. Just be carfull not to damage any of the ribbon cables etc and should be fine.
