Dear Sirs,
I've worked a bit trying to let the LCD-OLinuXino-15.6FHD display with touchscreen working on A20-OLinuXino-MICRO running Android (my not so lucky experience here https://www.olimex.com/forum/index.php?topic=7191.0). I've not given up with it, I'll try to keep on trying in my spare time but in the meanwhile I need to find a working alternative:

Has someone been able to use a 15 (or more) inches lcd plus touchscreen with A20-OLinuXino-MICRO running Android?
In case, can you share which hardware have you used and if you needed to perform particular configuration / OS changes in order to let it work? (or if you have written / followed some online notes)

Thank you very much
Simone

you can use HDMI display and connect to the HDMI connector, there are lot of LCD displays with different sizes and HDMI input

Hi,
thank you for your suggestion. I'll try as soon as possible.

With regard of the touchscreen, do you know if
LCD-TS15.6 (https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/LCD/LCD-TS15.6/)
can work even under Android? I've see on the manufacturers web-site that they provide drivers for 2.6 kernels only but the A20 android sources use a kernel version 2.4.

Alternatively, do you know if there are other touchscreen hardware I can use with a soo large screen?

Thank you very much
Simone
