Multiple screens with Road Runner
Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time builder...
So I'm tackling a dual screen install, and thus far everything is going well. I found setting up dual Lilliput touch screens to be a breeze - configuring the touch zones for each screen was simple. I'm totally pumped to be going ahead with this, but now I have the inevitable front end problems.
Road runner seems like the obvious choice, but the default skin obviously won't work for me. I want Video/Audio to trigger on the second screen, and I don't need buttons for satellite radio/tv/phone, etc. I've read through the tutorials for making your own skins, and it's a little intimidating for me. I'm not really that handy with photoshop/GiMP/whatever, and it all just seems really complex to me.
So the bottom line on this is, has anyone developed a good dual screen skin for Road Runner yet? Browsing through this board, it looks like someone was working on it, but never released anything. Otherwise, any encouragement or words of advice for tackling my own skin? Is there another front end that may be more appropriate for me?
My install consists of an Athlon64 laptop (160gig HD, 2gigs RAM) which has a dead screen. This will be hidden away in a nice enclosure, and is connected to dual 8" Lilliputs (VGA out and S-Vid out). I have Microsoft Streets and Trips with their GPS dongle (and of course I can't get the driver to install to save my f'ing life). I eventually intend to add a backup camera (which will most likely just go into a Lilli input rather than the PC), and a front-view infrared cam (which probably will go through the PC).
Anyway, this board is packed full of information, which is great.. but it's hard to synthesize down all that information into what's applicable in my scenario so I'm reaching out for some personal help. Thanks guys!
