Could you tell us a bit more about the lcd system? It could be that you need either a driver board, and/or a video cable from a tv-out from your graphics card...

Ok, I would assume that the lcd display does show a video picture when connected to a live feed?It may be that you need to configure your video display to show a second monitor on the video out. This is usually a clone or dual view, and some cards will pan across both displays instead of duplicating. May be worth looking at in your display settings...

Hi!We have also running a 5,6'' LCD screen without any problems. With TVTool you can stretch the image. You could try it yourself, download the 15-min limited demo version. At our homepage you will find some pics of the MCDU.TvTool is only compatible with Nvidia cards.regards,Steve---------------------------------------------------------------------Do you know the A320 Flightdeck Project?

Hello guys,For my home cockpit ( 747-400 ) I am using a 17" lcd monitor lying on it's back and built into the pedestal.On that the Magenta lower eicas and cdu are being displayed.On top of the monitor there is a touchscreen attached.Now I can "push"the cdu keys.later this year i will put a cdu cover+keys on top of it so I can to really push the keys.In my opinion the cheapest and easiest way to have a working cdu. Happy flying, Gerard SaldenTeam Wideview

Is it possible to put over your TFT monitor a CDU/FMC kit from Flightdecksolutions as a hardware solution? To have the feeling of the real thing and not a touch screen?I mean, how you can protect the monitor?Is the space enought for all the buttons, wires, leds etc?Has anyone do it before?ThanksEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
