    Translation

    I read the online manual for the Opus90w. In the manual it says that I can power my lcd by using the slave (I think that is the correct terminology) power. Can I do the same if I was using an ATX (don't know) AC (alternate current) PSU (power supply unit)? I would like to set up and install the OS (Operating System) on the pc (Personal Computer) in the house since it is getting chilly outside using the LCD so that when I do install it in the car it is completely ready to go.

    ummm, good try but still confusing..Do you even know what you are asking? lol "slave power???" "ATX AC PSU." do you mean just a regular ATX power supply you plug in at home?

    Here is what I think your question is.. tell me if I'm wrong.. You have an OPUS 90W.. but you want to test your carPC at home using any old regular ATX power supply.. You want to power your LCD off this power supply too and you want to know if it is possible..

    Answer: Depending on the LCD (info you didn't provide) yes, it is possible.. Does that answer your question?

    kingnasty, are you trying to power the TM-701 with an Opus?

    Or, with a power supply (which is plugged in to an AC outlet) that's usually used for home PC?

    He wants to bring his PC in the house with his LCD and power the LCD with a standard AC power supply as can be done with the Opus 90.

    The way most people do it is their LCDs come with a standard AC adapter so you can just bring it into the house and plug it into the wall.
