    a little help with screens and input

    I have a screen already with composite in, it isnt a touch screen, i was wondering if it is worth buying a VGA to composite box, and also i would like to know if there are any decent input methods other than touchscreen.

    Thanks in advanced

    No a computer looks terrible through composite. I had my rear 9.2" headrest monitors hooked up with a vga-to-composite adapter and text was unreadable. So I invested $145 in getting two Vga controllers for them, so I could run them VGA at 1024x768.

    That's how bad they looked with a PC hooked up through composite. So bad I spent $145 AFTER I had already spent $220 on the headrest.

    As for other methods than touchscreen. I use a touchpad mounted on the armrest. I also have an awesome touchpad remote that does terrific.

    Cheers for the reply,

    I though that might be the case with the screen , I think I will just get a proper VGA screen, I have to say, I do like the idea of the touchpad remote! Though probably something I would end up losing! Lol

    For input you could use the awesome RoadRunner front end with keyboard inputs ( check the how-to section ).
    Then either use a wired numeric keypad or mini keyboard ( dinovo mini is perfect for the car )
