    Well, it all depends on the angle you're viewing from. You can try it without any and that might be fine. Others might need a 10k resistor. That's the reason for the pots: everybody's got a different setup.

    And if you're just using winamp check out http://sourceforge.net/projects/lcdplugin/
    If you like to monitor everything then what you got is best.

    does anyone know which pot controls the contrast? I would prefer full contrast all the time , so the only thing Id need a pot for would be the backlight , but I would prefer to stay away from pots all together and just use resistors

    The 10K is the contrast and the 100 is the brightness.

    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
