    Thinking about 3-rd screen option- is there support for any kind of touchscreen in FW 1.4? I recall iLive had few supported models.

    Touchscreens that are class compliant on Linux and support the dLive resolution (1024×768) should work. Touchscreens that require a driver installation are not supported.

    We cannot guarantee a particular model to work I’m afraid. My recommendation is to try before you buy whenever possible or buy from a retailer with a good return policy.

    By the way- what is recommended screen resolution? I found out the aspect 4:3 looks best, so I’m after a 12″ LCD (POS or CCTV use mainly, but dirt cheap). Highest resolution available is 1400 x 1050, but do I need that high?

    dLive outputs at 1024×768.

    Anyone tried this? It would be good to create a list of tested monitors that work from the ones customers have tried and found to work…

    At the moment NO touchscreen will work reasonably, it seems. Even the ones that are recognized won’t respond correctly, because the dLive system seems to “fake” a screen of double horizontal resolution when an external screen is attached. So 1024×768 internal plus 1024×768 external results in 2048×768 as seen by the system. Now th external screens touch mechanism is mapped to that full resolution, so when pressing the right side of the external screen, you will get the right side of the external screen, but touching slightly right of the middle of thae external touchscreen will land you on the far left side. Every touch left of the middle will lead you to the internal screen! So it’s pretty much unusable. I tried that with two different touchscreens, one I lent and one of my Asus VT168H. Both are recognized as in reacting to touch, but just not in the touched places…

    That’s unfortunate, but thank you for writing back. I’ll just use a normal monitor for now I guess?

    I assume that means a mouse won’t work either…

    Mouse will work. You’ll see a pointer on the external screen IIRC and that pointer will be where you click. You have to imagine the touchscreen issue I described like this: Even with a mouse pointer present, a touch slightly right of the middle of the screen will make the mouse pointer to the left edge of the external screen. So you COULD correlate touching point and actual point where the click will happen in your mind, but it’s not intuitive, as it is not where you touched.

    Any update to this? It would be nice to use one of these new lightweight touchscreens that are coming out if the mapping were able to be fixed.
