    Talking It's arrived - 8" Lilliput

    Just got my 8" Lilliput this morning.
    Have to say, I'm quite impressed. The build quality seems better than I expected, although the egg regulator looks a bit cheap.
    I hooked the screen up to a PC here in the office, and it started in 1024x768 - I was very impressed with the image quality of this resolution (and 800x600) when it was scaling down, it does a better job than the TFT on my desk does.
    The quality when I dropped it down to native 640x480 was superb.
    Touchscreen seems to work quite well, no problems in the 10 min test I gave it.

    I like the fact that the buttons on the screen light up when you press them, and then go out about 5 secs later.

    The only thing I did find, was that when i opened the start menu, and selected Programs (and my list of programs appeared) the screen flickers slightly, and if I do it repeatedly it will flick off for a sec, and then reconnect the VGA input. It's like it's loosing sync for a sec.
    Anyone else notice this?

    I'm sure it's the analogue to digital circuit, and it's probably normal, as the plasma displays we use in the office for presentations do a similar thing if you scroll a webpage really fast.

    Other than that, it's cool!

    Got it off eBay.
    Was a bit wary as a friend of mine got stung on some normal lcd screens - which should have been Pal but were NTSC.

    This came from i-Shop4U.
    It was boxed in a nicer than normal (for a Chinese import) box and was sent special delivery (UK) from London.

    The price was 205 shipped.

    Oh, one more thing, the brightness of the screen seems really nice. Certainly doesn't look too dull through the touchscreen. be interesting to see how well it works in car.

    Did you try bumping up the refresh rate? In the book it tells you the max... IIRC I'm running 800x600@75 and VERY happy. Thought the 1024 was a whee bit small for my big fingers

    Can you give me a link to the skin you're using?
    I can't find one suitable for the 4:3 resolution of the 8" Lilli.

    Thanks!

    I was working on a slightly modified version of febs skin to suit my needs. I never completed it

    I never "released" it cause it wasn't finished and never asked for permission yet as it is based on febs skin

    (NOTE: OBDII, Camera, and GPS only lead to external apps in hopes of customized menus being released)

    For thread size here's the browser/player
