    BATTERY METER CALIBRATION:
    The bottom variable resistor sets the high voltage point (or 'full charge' voltage), so set this first when batteries fully charged; clockwise lower voltage, anticlockwise higher voltage.
    The top variable resistor (near the button) sets how broad the range is, so set this afterwards to get the low voltage point at low low battery power, anticlockwise lower, clockwise higher. Low voltage should be about 10v when the batteries have no load connected.

    The clips playing on the screen were from the trailers for Planet Earth 2 and Assassin's Creed.

Wouldn’t have laptop battery cells work better? They would have probably give a longer lifespan depending on the mah rating giving you a lifespan closer to 4 hours

Hello sir i am a big fan of yours. these parts are rarely available here in india and customs duty is even twice the actual cost of items sometimes. Moreover items are seased at customes and all are prepaid deliveries.So If you don't mind can you please make one of this Display for me and parcel it to me i can pay you the amount directly. I will be very very greatful to you.

Not actually portable unfortunately as chromecast now REQUIRES wifi to work, and often won't accept the mobile hotspot from the phone that is casting.

hi. thanks for the video. you are my favourite DIY on you-tube, am trying to build the same project, i have the screen only waiting for to board to arrive from china, i want ask you about if i can use PAM8610 audio amplifier, its the same showing in your video mounted inside the hand made sound box, but i tried to fix that mini amplifier with audio controller like Bluetooth decoder and it make noise then the decoder shutoff i added capacitor to the volt in to the mini amp as a filter and the same happen, it works only if i use separate power supply one for the board and one for the decoder, if you can help to tell me what is wrong? am afraid to connected with the board for my screen then will be the same result and maybe it will be damage same like the Bluetooth decoder. thanks,

May I ask? Why didn’t you use your Bluetooth amp? Wireless and very strong. You would have just built a passive crossover and if you don’t let them over lap your not changing the ohm level. This would have been fine with this mono amp you would have just had to change the crossover to the output. It would have saved power. Btw I understand that we all have opinions. Just like you know what holes! Please just take my comments as could this of been good and if you think it truly might have been better would you let me know, that is if you comment.

I bought the audio amplifier from the video, but I can't connect it properly to a speaker. I tried to wire the audio inputs from an apple earphone jack, and for power I used a 6V phone charger (plugs into mains), but all I get is a loud buzzing. Did I ground it wrong? how do I rectify this problem and use the amp with a 3.5mm jack??

This Low Pass filter you made is not recomended for subwoofers. With RC (resistor, capacitor) you have current and voltage losses. You need to find a subwoofer amplifier which amplifies only low frequencies but without any current losses.
