    Yep, mine being in my canopy doesn't have any reliable grounds. Combine that with vibrations and what not it is safest to have a dedicated earth saves a lot of stuffing around trying to figure out why stuff is failing later.

    Most monitors are 60 aren't they..?
    It didn't have 800x480 as an option when you connect it?
    I suggested something in this thread today as they were having trouble too mut your solution might be better.. no idea..
    "Transflective" LCD panel with res touch+controler for $101+$36 S+H

    I can only go down to 800x600 with standard drivers..
    I found this: http://software.intel.com/en-us/arti...ntel-graphics/
    which could help if i could make any sense of it ... similar to what you posted i think, but more complicated

    That does look pretty good, think I could follow it if I was trying to do it.
    Was just asking as generally they wont show all the possible resolutions only the ones the monitor tells the computer it can handle.

    I think i might just stick with 800x600 the Lilliput does display it, and it doesn't look bad or anything.. but i guess native res would probably be better..
    though Intel does state it supports custom resolutions in control panel.. but i can't see a way to set any
    New Control Panel - New look and feel, easier to use, with custom resolution settings.

    Everything lol.. but i'm learning..
    I don't think it's showing the native res for the lilliput, because the lilliput isn't plug & play? it just shows as 'generic non P&P monitor'
    A few more questions though..
    What do most people use as a mic?
    What about bluetooth? just any old BT dongle?
    How do i incorporate that into everything else including the mobile phone (including mute) etc?

    Now that i'm getting into this, i'm starting to think about what else i can do lol...
