    digitalww.com has what you need but it's going to cost you a lot more than $250

    "Only need it for a DVD player and a Playstation"

    just a plain old composite will do fine unless you are going carputer one day.

    heres a couple links from my

    Well I did it. (Bought an LCD)

    Hacking my Morotized screen.

    you will notice that they were not happy with the screen and wanted to go to a VGA setup...that is a carputer thing, your dvd and playstation should be just fine. It seems to have 2 inputs, so that should work well also.

    They are from Hong Kong, so be warned, when it goes bad, make electronics friends in the USA, or it is a $70 round trip!

    Probably not a ton of difference at the level we are talking. Note it is not a motorized unit though. If you want reliable, and great service, and dont care about the motorized part, look at the DigitalWW site
    You cant go wrong, if it breaks, he can fix it, if you need help he is there. Keep out of Hong Kong, imo

    In-Dash Monitor

    I wish I could get it off of digitalww, but it seems that they are out of stock.
    Does this one look alright, I believe it almost the same as the other I found on ebay, but its not from Hong Kong.

    Aspect Ratio

    If the aspect ratio says 16:9 is it switchable? Can it still use the whole screen, or just the widescreen area? Thanks again!

    That looks like a great deal, should work well. And, if you ever need to go to a vga setup, a lilly should fit right in that housing (ok, its not THAT easy, but not too bad) As far as stretching or what it will look like, I am not really sure, all I have messed with is a VGA setup, never a composite only, so maybe someone else has input?
