video drivers to get it to work with 800x480?
I just so happened to have mine is pieces while I redo the car's bezel.
LCD Panel (Outside):
The correct native resolution is 800x640 but do to limitations of the VIA Mini-ITX motherboards I run mine in 800x600 and it looks good enough. It also handles 1024x768 just fine but stuff is too tinny to see.
what kind of switch/button/anything does this screen use to turn on? is it a momentary switch? im sure we can come up with something to turn it on and off automatically. with all the good reviews, im going down to measure the room in my car to see if i can make it fit!

I know this is asking a lot (since it already doesnt even have auto-on feature)
but does it by any chance switch from one input to another (say VGA to RCA) if a video signal appears on the RCA input ? (for reverse camera purposes)

I was especially disappointed in that you have to hold it in for 3 seconds to even turn it off. I ended up attaching it to the ignition wire so it would turn off automatically. That helped a lot!
I bought a used Provision PRTV 800 8" lcd touchscreen. Both RCA video inputs work but there was a broken wire on the VGA plug. I repaired it but when I went to plug it in I realized that the plug on the end of the VGA cable was a 7 pin and the female plug on the board was a 9 pin. Is this similat to yours? I have no documentation for this monitor and calling Provision in Houston for support was a total farce. Can anyone help me?
You will need the extension cable or something like it... read post #4.

I got the same screen, i need to work on the circuit board to make it to turn on whenever it receives +12v, anybody knows ?
So how easy is this screen to fit into a into a double din hole. my Tiguan has a nice size opening and want to get the biggest screen that will fit for easy viewing.
