    setting up powerstrip for PSOne LCD

    After a long delay, I'm having some success with my Sony LCD screen. I bought a offical Sony car adapter to power it. I made the VGA to CN4 connections and I can get a scrolling image on the screen.

    I'm trying to figure out the steps of configuring PowerStrip. I'm following the instructions found on M Pro's site www.mpro.no-ip.com
    I can set the 640x480i resolution, but with a scrolling image it cant adjust it further. Lots of people suggest using RealVNC do to it across a network. I dont have a network setup. Has anyone done it directly on the PC?

    Best thing to do would be to use a regular monitor, switch to the 640x480i res, switch back to your psone screen, and then go from there. That should at least get some kind of readable picture I would think. If not, borrow someones laptop and network together and use RealVNC.

    If you don't use realvnc or remote desktop, and you change to the wrong resolution you'll have to restart and boot into VGA mode to see anything. Just put in a cheap network card and test resolutions across that, and when it's all good take the network card out.

    I just use 2 video card to set up mine.

    The primary card is setup on the normal monitor, put the powerstrip window on this monitor.

    The other video card (the target card) is connected to the PSONE screen. Set it up as extend desktop to this monitor.

    Then just play round with the powerstrip on the main monitor until the PSONE on the other card become stable.

    Think I explained that correctly
