    Can you highlight what you did to get this resolution (DTD, registry)?

    Thanks.
    I did some poking around in the registry entries for the SiS driver. There were a bunch of entries which were disabled which I had to enable, problem was that they were identified by an ID number and not the actual resolution.

    Like I said, though, it didn't do me any good and I'm still using 800x600.

    *sigh* Now that the weather is warming up, I really need to make some time and finish this project up.

    Look at this at MCS site.
    It's written that there is a new custom bios which support the 800 x 480 resolution. I'm in contact with Chris, the owner. Maybe there will be an in-house solution to this.
    Perhaps you should drop him an email too.

    Any updates. I am putting the same board in an 08 Rio5 (same car, different body).

    Still alive.

    Bezel is almost done. Here's where I started (Yes, it's filthy; I bought it from a junk-yard). The only thing done was I cut out a cross piece between the DIN opening and the clock. The monitor is just dry-fitted behind the bezel.



    And here's where I am now. I had to widen the opening slightly to bring the monitor flush then I used ABS cement to fuse everything into one solid piece.



    It just needs a little more glazing putty in the top section and in some minor sanding scratches then it's ready for some more primer, sanding, etc.

    Now I have to figure out where I'm going to relocate the hazard/defogger switches to.

    Nice Progress on your bezel. We have the same screen. Just wondering if you have tested the screen installed working yet in your dash? One thing I have noticed is our screens heat up quite a bit. Have you had any issues with it becoming too hot?

    Update: Case complete. Bezel complete.

    Here it is in all its glory:



    Here's a better detail shot of the bezel. There's a lamp shining right on it so there's some glare on the screen from that.



    It's not perfect but for now, it's "good enough". Lesson learned: ABS cement may be great for mating the pieces together but it bubbles like no-one's business. I had a late stage crack on the lower edge where I had very little cement. I had to dig it out and lay in what I should have applied in the first place. Trouble is, I had to go back over it 5 times or more sand/glaze/prime before it was "ok" and it's still not perfect.

    For anyone else doing this, I suggest making sure you have enough glue in to begin with (should go without saying) and let it cure for a long time, as in two weeks or more then don't ever add any more. The cooler it is, the smaller, fewer bubbles you'll have.

    There's also some indications that the glue may not be heat stable. There were a couple of sags in the seams when I left the bezel in the sun while I was working on it. Gah! We'll see what happens when it's left in the car all day.

    All that's left now is to get it installed. The amp is in the trunk, mounted under the rear deck. I may want to pretty up the mounting plate but that's for a future date.

    Speaker wires are run but not into the doors yet. I need to get some crimp on spade lugs for connecting to the amp. Everything local for 12ga wire is for #10 studs while the amp has #8. Off to the 'net I go. I can probably just wire it bare for testing until I get those.

    OK, all the speaker wires are fully hooked up. The door panels were much easier to remove that I had expected, but the molex connectors...oy! They were a bear to remove from their holes. I finally figured that there was another clip on the back of them, totally unreachable in those confined quarters, that had to be unclipped as well. What I did to get it off was I ran a loop of wire I had left over from the amp remote hookup around the back of the connector and worked it until the clip came loose. From there I was able to drill out holes in the connector and run the wires through.


    I expected to have everything installed today but the ordeal above took longer than I expected. Hopefully tomorrow.

    Yea newer cars seem to be really easy to take apart, even though they look really complicated. On each of my doors, there are 2 screws on the bottom, one in the top back corner, one on the top front corner and then 2 big screws in the middle. Once off simply pull out, then lift up and pull away.

    The stupid connectors though OMG, and those plastic boots. That killed me, took almost 4 hours to take them apart and smash the thick 12 gauge through them. Then I had to smash ethernet with it on the back doors, 2 ethernet and 2 power for the front passenger, and 1 ethernet, 2 power, and two 22 gauge wires. The I had to fight to get the connectors to reconnect. Thank god I never have to do that again. I also took the time to pull out all the original wire I didn't need like all the speaker wire, and for the front all the mirror control wires.
