    I didn't know the stupid "slideshow" in the webpage editor didn't necessarily work with Firefox and Internet Explorer.

    Above is a direct link to the images. You can see the settings for SwitchResX there.

    Greetings all,

    I just bought EBY701 (they said it's new LED panel) connected to the solo MacMini and I was trying DisplayconfigX to set it up for 800x480 display. But, when I try to ad the custom resolution "Timing" is always grayed out. Does any one know why? Anyone ever seen this this problem before? I've to send it back if i can't set 800x480 on this screen. Any help/hint very much appreciated. Cheers!!!

    For a moment, it came in my mind as well but how can I know for sure before purchasing? Any comment(s) from anyone else out here? Cheers!!!

    hey, jsut thought i would add my 2 cents... you do need to buy it to do a timing, or any other more advanced feature. i just did it and it worked fine:-)

    I thought so. It's only like $5-10 isn't it?

    hi bikerdudepost, thanks for the conformation. It's about $10, I think - not rally a big deal. I tried switchResX in the mean time (full-featured demo version works for 10 days) and it worked but it's expensive. So, thinking which one to buy. Any advice/suggestion?? Cheers!!!

    I should probably update the page, the version on my website is really old and probably doesn't work with Leopard or the Intel Macs.

    To calibrate the LCD: My LCD was really wonky as well, it took me a while to figure out how to calibrate the touch screen (give me a break, I'm a liberal arts major. :P)

    After you have the LCD connected and displayed correctly, run the TouchKit application (it should have been installed along with the USB drivers.)

    Click on the 4 Point calibration button. A target symbol plus what looks like a progress bar at the bottom will appear. Press and hold down the stylus on the target until it indicates it found the target. The mistake I kept making for 20 minutes on end was that I didn't hold the stylus down, I just tapped it on the screen and made the progress bar reset. I didn't know what to expect, there's no ReadMe, Help file, or tutorial!

    Anyway, press and hold on the targets as they come up. It should now be calibrated.


    Another application you guys should get: XGestures

    This cool program will let you do gestures on your touch screen kinda like the iPod (but just one point, no pinch and stretching.) You can tailor it to specific applications (or everything), including perhaps the most important one, Front Row. This is an invaluable tool if you're going to mount this in a car. You can do a swipe of the finger to scroll up and down like an iPhone. It's really cool.
