    Hi!



    I've been looking for a smallish LCD screen in the 9-12" range.
    Getting one that is capable of doing 1920x1080 @50hz in clonemode with the primary HDTV is a bit hard to find.

    Buying a new htpc case is not an option.

    touch screen is not mandatory either.

    I just want to navigate my music etc. using the remote standing in front of the small LCD screen avoiding having to turn on the big plasma etc.

    any suggestions ?

    Seems like it's cheapest to buy any random PC LCD monitor, but they are rather big.

    Hello there, I always want to do that too. For me, it does not have to be high res, or even 16:9, as long as it is small enough, like 9 inch old black white LCD (if it exists)?

    I'm pretty sure you wont see 9-12" in FullHD in the near future. on? I think I'm gonna buy this one: Car Computer - Nanovision MiMo UM-740 and use it with the touchscreen plugin once it gets sorted out.

    You can find ones that accept 1920x1080@50hz but scale down to lower resolution. Important to make sure they have the same pixel aspect ratio otherwise it's a stretched image.

    I would indeed expect rescaling to occur- so this is no problem.

    I could even live with wrong AR.

    Any links to any of these screens as I didnt find anyone.

    Can't find the one i was looking at previously.
    Lots of XENARC monitors, but i think they only scale up to 1600x1200, and might not be able to display 1920x1080.
