Hello I love my latte panda but I use a 5 inch 40 pin screen hooked up to a driver board and it uses up the HDMI port and I was woundering if I could get a 5 inch screen that would not use the HDMI port and connect say to a header or the plug they have to use there 7 inch screen

If they would publish the screen pin-outs, as I have asked, then you might be able to find something that works.

Is the DSI port compatible with the Raspberry Pi DSI port?

Hi,
So a while back I received my panda and is a great little machine. I ordered the IPS panel with my panda but it seems the supplied USB adapter can't handle it. When I have my IPS panel connected the panda boots into windows but when I start doing something / CPU gets used the panda turns of like there is not enough power.

I live in Europe so the adapter that came with the panda is not suited for me since its only for USA outlets. I've bought a 'converter' to support my EU socket. Unfortunately, the power does not seem to be enough.

So what ampere / voltage adapters do you guys recommend?
