    Been planing for soooo Long! Help!

    hello everyone i am not actually a noob... iv been researching on this board for quite some time now and am slowly buying all the components for my setup.

    my original plan was to go with a single display (lilliput) now, i was thinking of having multiple displays. (1) Lilliput ans (2) composite tft/lcd screens for the headrest.

    my question... would this work?
    From the CPU
    -i will use the VGA out to the VGA IN of the LIlliput.
    -Audio Out from my CPUs soundcard to a Audio/Video Splitter

    From the DVD player
    -Video OUt to a VIDEO AMP and out to (3) screens the lilliput and the 2 tft/lcd screens in my headrest.
    -the audio OUT of the DVD to the Audio/Video SPlitter

    from the Audio/Video Splitter
    -to my BOSE AUX INPUT

    comments please? thanks in advance!

    Well, if you use a liliput, you can use either the VGA or composite video in, not both as they use the same connector. If it was mine, and I wanted the display on all 3 screens, I would just put a dvd drive in the PC and go without the external dvd player.

    Just my $.02

    I'm using my lilliput, although I have converted it, you can use the vga, and the usb connector at the side for video at the same time. (not watching, just connected). By reading your setup, your have a PC and a DVD player in the car, but only one can output sound at anyone time. If this is the case, I would be tempted to just us the PC with a VGA connector for the lilliput and a video out from the PC to both of your headrest screens. Dual clone output. You can use multi montiors also.. hydravision. This would then allow you to display a playing dvd in the back, while showing you gps in the front.. Only a suggestion..

    hope something in this helps you

    I thought that the LIlliput has 2 Video inputs?
    one RCA and one VGA?

    on my lilliput it has the vga input which also includes the usb touchscreen cable. It also comes with another cable this has.. two phono video connectors (v1/v2) and a phono audio connecter and a power in connector, these terminate to a usb type plug that you slot in the side of the lilliput. The screen toggles between vga--v1--v2 inputs.
