    Yeah that'd be nice.

    I've ordered one of these housing for my lilliput, is there any reason you cant do away with this connector and solder the cable direct to the monitor, you then remove the hassle of this connector and also lessen any chance of it working its way apart. Thats my plan anyway.. I will up the pic's soon as I get it next week.

    ps. I was also thinking about scrapping the cable and routing one which would include 2 extra wires for the 12v feed from the egg.. just wondered if I would come across any probs with this.. I guess theres only oneway to find out..

    Cdrskull:
    if you scrap the egg, then i would recommend you run power from the psu of your carputer. do not run it directly from the car battery

    what cable are you referring to soldering direct to the board? power? vga/touch signal? the usblike connector for V1/V2 signals?

    I'm installing my Lilliput into the in-dash housing now. I'm also having problems with the 9-pin mini-DIN connector - the VGA signal is intermittent and I have to push the connector in real tight before the signal is OK. Here's how I am wiring it up:

    a. +12V, GND, Video1, Video2: Using the 5 wire ribbon cable that comes with the housing. This is already pre-wired to carry +12V, GND, V1 and V2 from the 6-pin mini-DIN cable that comes with the housing. I intend to replace the mini-DIN with the V1/V2/Audio/+12V that comes with the Lilliput (cut off the USB end and wire it into the small PCB at the back of the housing.

    b. VGA + USB touchscreen: Add a 9 wire ribbon cable from the display housing to the back of the in-dash housing. Cut off the head (9-pin mini DIN) of the Lilliput's VGA/touchscreen cable and splice it into the ribbon cable.

    c. Drill a small hole on the display bezel, install a bicolor (red/green) LED and wire that to the Lilliput's display controller.

    yeah I agree with getting rid of that connector, mine also aint to clever and has to be pushed in hard to get a good connection. I have been looking at the connectors on the lilliput, have you made sure you can connect both the VGA and V1/V2 in at the same time ? It seems one lets you power the lilliput through this din, I havent taken my multimeter to it yet.. but I think I'm just going for the VGA/USB and power, having a V1 would be nice to have spare. So far I'm looking at using the vga cable soldered direct to the lilliput, and stripping down the other connector and removing the power wire from it, maybe srink wrapping it in a few places along the way to keep it neet. think this has to be planned, and not rushed into as it will save u lots of hassle if you get it right..

    hmm just been looking at the leads I got with my lilliput, it seems I have been sent the wrong v1/v2 ones..

    ok after doing alittle reading, it seems the cable on a ide computer cable is good to 300Volts.. :-) so you would need 12 wires in total, 6 for the VGA, 4 for the USB and 2 for power.. Think this is the way to go.. also thinking about putting connecters on either end of these cables, a 14 pin one, double header. This would enable me to disconnect the unit. What do you think ?

    so to make things alittle clearer..

    lilliput screen --> into 14pin head socket
    |
    ribbon cable inhousing
    |
    into 14pin head socket --> into current VGA&USB
    --> into Egg

    you would then have two fly leads coming out the back of the unit

    pretty good idea, i thought about it and just decided that it was more work than i wanted to do...however it does take a bit of muscle to get the latch to release on mine

    as I seem to be missing the correct v1/v2 cable, does this plug into the don plug or the usb socket on the side ? or how do you get the v1/v2 to work

    cheers

    usb socket on lilliput.....power...v1...v2 and audio input for the built in speaker, press the input source button on the screen to toggle inputs. look at the links in the first posts in this thread for the WRX site that has a lot of info for the screen
