    Resolution problem with Xenarc 700YV

    I am planning to get two Xenarc 700YV for my headrests. For the front I have a 10.4". I also have 4 other composite screens inside the car. The video card is a ATI All In Wonder 9600PRO with dual VGA and TV out. I would like to have my computer images displayed on all the screens. However I have a few questions regarding resolution.

    My 10."4 LCD is just a normal LCD with resolution of 800x600. The Xenarc's resolution is 800x480. I am planning to use a VGA splitter to split the signal into three LCD (1 10."4 and 2 Xenarc ). What resolution should I set with my computer ? If I set my video card to display 800x600, will the Xenarc auto adjust to fit the images into the screen and into the 800x480 format ?

    Will using VGA splitter to split one VGA source into three degrade the video quality ? I am using the ones that I got from the MP3CAR.com store.

    If I use a USB to VGA converter like this one,

    Will I be able to have two different resolution setting ? For example one at 800x600 for the 10.4" LCD with the video card, and 800x480 for the Xenarc with the USB adapter.

    I know my video card has dual VGA out, but I coudln't make it display video at both display at the same time. So when I am playing a movie, one will display and the other will be blank.

    Any suggestion or solutions ? Please help.

    I can answer the 1st question: yes, the xenarc will stretch to full screen when using any supported resolution (600 * 800 is one of them).

    How does the Xenarc look when it is stretched to 800x600 ? Is it acceptable ?

    Another question regarding the Xenarc 700YV. How do you change input source? Does the screen has a button where you just toggle between VGA, AV1, and AV2? Or do you have to go through the OSD and set it everytime?

    Reason I am asking is I have a computer, VCR, DVD player, and PS2 in my car. I frequently change to different source all the time and was wondering if it would be a hassle since the screen does not come with a remote.

    My PC did the same thing at home I had hooked up to my tv and my pc monitor and one would be all black and the other would show the video. But I messed around with some settings and got both screens to show the video. Ill try and see if I can find out what I did to get them to both show and I post it here.
