    It's $43 and outputs on both Composite and S-Video. I purchased two composite video headrest screens from DigitalWW for $120. Get an S-Video to composite adaptor, and now you can output the front screen output to both of the rears. The quality in the rear two LCDs aren't as good as the molded Lilliput in the front, but I only use it for the kids in the back.
    This is the solution I came up with because my M10000 is in a Morex 3688 case, and there's no room to add a PCI card.

    What, the $43 scan converter? It's not any more expensive than a PCI vga card.

    More expansive than an Y divider anyway...

    You still need a y divider to be able to use the liliput and the converter. But using the y divider and the converter is still probably cheaper than having to buy a vga monitor since you can find composite monitors for much cheaper.

    That was what I was trying to get at. Like I had said, I spent $120 for TWO composite 7" screens. That's a lot cheaper than a 7" VGA. Even without touchscreen, they are around $250 for one. So for $170 I got two screens and the scan converter.
    You also don't need the Y cable because the model I linked to comes with a cable already.
