Flip-down monitors

This is more of a rant, but it seems that all flip-down monitors still only have RCA input... of course that is because most double-din navigation receivers only have RCA output. This is ridiculous that they are still using an analog 480p cable. Nothing looks worse to me than a LCD driven by an analog source.

Has anyone seen a flip-down monitor (for watching movies in the back) with HDMI input?

Flip-down monitors

I agree completely but can't answer your question. May be something to ask the RV guys on the Open Roads Forum? They have a great electronics/tech forum.

Currently vanless. Weird.

Re: Flip-down monitors

I'm sure this is one reason why you don't see more HDMI connectors.

HDMI Licensing charge manufactures an annual fee of US$10,000 (less for manufacturers making less than 10,000 units per year) plus a royalty fee of $0.15 per unit, reduced to $0.05 if the HDMI logo is used, and to $0.04 if HDCP is implemented. The royalty is chargeable per unit sold to the public, so that equipment incorporating or supplied with HDMI cables, integrated circuits, and so on attracts only a single royalty fee; but each HDMI cable or other item sold directly to the public pays a royalty.
I'll bet RCA jacks are royalty free.

How about built-in DVD?

Re: Flip-down monitors

this has one mounted on the bottom, not perfect but it does have HDMI input. It says for Phone input Most of the flip down monitors are made for inbuilt DVD systems, that do not support HD.
