SensorPanel monitor options

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I am trying to figure out the best option for a small (max 7'') external screen to use with SensorPanel.

I find lots of options on eBay that I suppose are all viable (e.g., https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7inch-HDMI-LCD-H-with-case-1024x600-IPS-Capacitive-Touch-Screen-Audio-Output/133067577890).

 

What I am unsure at the moment:

- Is the quality/resolution of the screen important?

- Is touch input needed/used?

- Is there any difference (limitations) between the three available options (using an HDMI connected screen, a USB connected one and/or an affordable Android tablet)? 

 

Any input would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

 

Best,

S

Only you can tell whether the picture quality and resolution of the display is a priority for you or not.  If you want to build a beautiful external screen, then quality is important.  If you just want to glance on some sensor readings while you're playing games on your main monitor, then probably quality is less of importance.

AIDA64 SensorPanel supports clickable images and static labels to open a pre-defined URL, but for most users it's not a huge deal.  Therefore I don't think touch capability is really beneficial for SensorPanel.

For those who're looking for a large colour screen, we usually recommend SensorPanel + any display that can be used as an extension of Windows Desktop.  USB connected monitors and regular monitors (connected via DSub, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort) both work fine for such purpose.  An old 15-inch or 17-inch DSub-connected LCD monitor is a great start due to the low costs.

USB-connected external displays that aren't monitors can sometimes be a challenge (e.g. Samsung SPF digital frames) and can cost a lot as well, but one great example of those that AIDA64 fully supports and is relatively affordable is BeadaPanel:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BeadaPanel-7-LCD-Display-for-AIDA64-USB-Single-Cable-Gadget-Monitor-w-Touch-/113404121186

It is supported since AIDA64 v6.00, but you need to use the AIDA64 LCD module for that, and not the SensorPanel that only supports monitors.

The last option is using an Android tablet and the RemoteSensor or OdoSpace LCD module of AIDA64.  It's the least flexible option, since you gotta make sure to charge the tablet.  But, if you already have a tablet in your drawer that is otherwise not in daily use, it could be a great start to get used to the LCD layout editor of AIDA64 -- which is shared between the SensorPanel and LCD modules of AIDA64.

Thank you for the detailed response!

I recently purchased an affordable tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A) and I am thinking of using this as a starting point and to get to know the capabilities/customization options of SensorPanel.

As soon as I feel comfortable with it, I will probably get one of those dedicated displays that you mention.

I am concerned that having the tablet constantly on power will damage its battery life, so I would only consider it a permanent solution if it was an old (retired) one. :)

      Hey there,
      Installed the new card but i do not see all the sensors, like i did on my 2080 ti.
      Also, when the GPU is idle (low clock) the GPU Clock field on my sensor panel and LCD appear and disappear sometime. Also,
      app takes way longer to load.
      If any logs are needed just let me know.
      Cheers!

      Hey, new to Aida64 so be gentle,
      I have 2 Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen display. One has a pi connected to it and the other is just the panel. The panel has just a usb port and a micro usb port. What's the easiest way to get this up and running as an external monitor? I've been running ModBros but I'm looking for something more customizable. 
       
      Also, other then the one forum post, is there anywhere to get templets to get a start from and build off of that?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated, all other functions are working perfectly.
      I understand it only works in game, but still there is no change. My FPS monitor with NVIDIA's software functions fine.
      My only thought is that it is displaying the FPS on the sensor panel (which would be 0) and not from my main monitor - is this possible? And what setting would I change?
