    rotate Lilliput display 180 degrees

    I would like to be able to rotate the Lilliput LCD display if possible. I have the MIA1000 board. This has to be able to switch back and forth 180 degrees, so I was looking for a utility to do this. Any free ones?

    Given that the rotation is being done is software how is movie playback on a rotated screen? Is it viable to flip the display, bold a laptop to the roof and watch DVD's on it (with the screen rotated 180 degrees) ?

    I just tried the eval of Pivot Pro and made a real mess of my laptop. It appears to install an out of date and unsupported video driver, I got stuck in a very weird resolution, mouse wouldn't work, couldn't uninstall it, couldn't see all of the screen. Fortunatley I managed to get to the XP Restore Point screen via the keyboard and got out of the mess.

    Software looks promising, I'm willing to believe my issues were due to special drivers for my laptop screen (1600x1280 Toshiba) but be careful. XP doesn't make a restore point automatically so make one yourself before installing.

    I had no problem when I installed, it does fool with video drivers, that is why it is transparent to the OS when it works.

    Since it is a modified video driver, video playback is seamless (for me at lease) but if you go 90 degrees on a full screen, the 16:9 becomes 9:16 and doesn't look all that good... some software will have massive unused space as it keep aspect ratio, which might be better, but the image is quite small.

    hope that helps.

    If you are using a Nvidia video card there is a setting under control panel that will rotate your desktop 90, 180, or 270. I know because my lilliput is mounted upside down in my car.
