    Question HELP (4 Displays)


    I'm starting a project. (A Newbie.. hehe)

    I looked at this: Via M10000-N mainboard

    Then my plan is: 1 Touchscreen, and 2 5,6" Displays in the headrests. And I have an 14" Display from a Laptop, Is it possible to use them all at the same computer?? I just need the same picture at each Display..

    And is it possible it make a socket(cord) or what it's called.. *LOL*

    Please help me.. So that I can get started

    only problem U may run into is the laptop display, I think you may need a converter for that. I don't know much about how easy/hard it would be to convert it

    socket cord - no idea ?
    I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

    The problem with the laptop display.. is that everything is thrown out so I only have the display, and the wires doesn't look like a normal display.. So I don't know what to do with it..

    Do you have a link to the video amplifier?

    You won't be able to use the laptop display, search and ye shall find out why.

    You can just use a video splitter to get the same view on all the monitors. Developer (I am Chuck)

    look on the back of the LCD and google any part or seriel numbers. You should be able to find out if there is a controller for it after some searching. will probobly be pricey though.

    the 5.6'' screens your are looking for/have are probobly tft screens. they will be okay for video, but not for small text. look in the completed projects section or display section of the site.

    If the headrest screens are composite, you can use splitters, if they're S-vid, you may need a vid amp/splitter, if they're VGA, I'd recommend an amp/splitter to split the 7" and the smaller ones, then just Y-cables to split up the rest of the small ones. I've noticed that sometimes when using different types of monitors off of one VGA Y-splitter, both screens don't always look right, usually bad color on one.
