make sure you disable the INTERNAL monitor. It's under the intel HD graphic properties. I had the same problem as the resolution wouldn't go up to 1980p but it turned out the system was set up to dual monitor (clone). I believe it's also much faster now.

On my 55" screen I was able to set the LP to 1080P however it didn't fit the screen correctly.
Use your TV/Screen settings to 'fit to screen' for the picture size. Then play some video to check that the aspect ratio hasn't been screwed up.

you must disable the onboard monitor or 800x600 and 1020x800 (if memory serves) will be the only one selectable. The onboard monitor is limited to those.
I guess if you don't have anything connected you should be able to plug an HDMI monitor, disable the onboard one, set a decent resolution and then see what happens when you unplug the HDMI monitor...

Does it matter which way one connects the display connector? I'd like to plug it in upside down so the cable won't bend.

Normal yes...
If maybe left is 5V and right is 0V and you rotate the cable... :shock:
Live long and prosper!

It only works with the gold contacts facing down. If you put it in upside down, the contacts will not make contact with the slot and it just won't work.

Got my lattepanda kit with screen and touch panel. So far so good (I'm not planning on working it too hard!) but I'm concerned about the ribbon connectors for the screen/panel and wonder how folk might be protecting them. I would like to make this a portable setup and hate the idea of (un)plugging the ribbons all the time.
Seeking inspiration!
