Topic: Upgrade your controller with LCD screens - Page: 4

This topic is old and might contain outdated or incorrect information.

It's a lot of info and it's not something I pickup and work with...
This means a lot of trial and error and also with a beta buggy builder... Hmmmm.

I took a look at the xml of my favorite skin... That is a long long long xml file.. I'm afraid I'm retiring before I finish my three screen setup with this skin..

Think it'll work??


I read: this product is discontinued...

And no, this will not work unless you buy three extra video cards..

The best I had were USB VGA external video cards.
I had startech, but I sold them since they could not give FHD resolution ('only' 1600 * 1200)

You can buy on ebay if you search " startech usb2vga " around 10 usd now
of course they have usb2hdmi and usb2DP also, depend what you need.

new models can handle FHD too, but around 40-50 usd / unit
These cards does not have any latency.

Dell venue 8 pro with 4 dasplays. No visible latency.

They are good for 2d only! do not try to use them for any 3d stuff.

6 of them can be used on a single system...
Might be enough.

I had this:
9.99 USD
http://www.ebay.com/itm/StarTech-USB-VGA-External-Dual-USB2VGA-/231492414436?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35e605ebe4

or here is an ultimate (upgraded version of the previous model)
8 of them are for 150 or best offer

All you need is some VGA displays

I've been playing with one running VDJ for a little while now.


I miss the knobs. I have to keep looking at the screen to make sure I hit the correct area. Maybe after the muscle memory builds up it will be better.

Ok, thanks to DJ Dad's beta skinbuilder I found a few things that helped me to bring the browser pop up in a window, so I can put the browser in my middle 10" screen
But then it stopped.. I can't figure out yet how to change pictures, sizes, parameters etc and put them in a window.

This is what I've got so far. The left and right decks are copied/mirrored with software from my laptop screen and displayed/mirrored on the two 7" screens on my controller, but the software doesn't keep up with realtime wave forms. It stutters on my 7"displays....

The browser is a second/duplicate browser where I used the "window" argument for in the xml file. This browser is now moved to my middle 10" screen.

On the pictures you see I already tried the master video and the scratchwaves in a window and moved them to the middle 10" screen on the top, but that's not working at the moment.
And I can't find the parameters to put the decks in a window. The XML file is to bla bla bla for me :(
