    1024 x 768 widescreen?

    Hi, I've recently been looking at some of the 7" screens on ebay and it seems a fair amount are 16:9 and 1024x768. What I'm wondering is, doesn't this create a "squished" look to anything on the display? I would think it would be pretty useless for watching a DVD and would make it tough to design a UI for it.

    Is anyone using one or have actual pictures of the display?

    I use an eBay 16:9 7" with 1024x768 resolution and it looks just fine. It's because the pixels aren't actually square, at least on mine. It looks great and is very nice to use.

    My 7" is a 16x9 running 800x600. Some 'front end' software like Centrafuse is designed to take advantage of this and will show 'normally' even at that resolution.

    Does your carpc have av out? or does your lcd have vga in?
    Or neither and you use a vga=>av converter...?

    We prefer screens with a VGA-in, but they are pricey.
    PC output in general looks like crap though TV-out.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
