    Lilliput powered by Opus 90 watt?

    Is anyone else powering a Lilliput 7" screen off of their Opus 90 watt power supply? I've been having some problems with my screen which only seem to manifest when it's in the car, run off the Opus. In the house using the wall wart adaptor, it works fine.

    The Opus is running the screen, my EPIA MII 1GHz, and a 40G IDE hard drive; no other peripherals. I know the screen only pulls 7 watts but I'm not sure about the motherboard or the hard drive.

    Are you sure you wired up the right voltage/polarity when connecting to the opus?

    Yes, no problems so far. Remember, the 12V rail of an Opus 90W can only provide 2.5A of constant current, which could be insufficient for powering a 3.5" hdd, a 5.25" dvd drive and a Lilliput.

    Slimline dvd drives and 2.5" harddrives require a single 5V only.
    CarPC status: HW all done, SW needs tweaked.
