Compatible HDMI LCDs for the BBB

I’m trying to design a stand-alone system with a 5-7" Touch LCD. I actually designed a cape with a 50 pin 7" 800 x 480 LCD and a TFT Touch display and all of the support hardware for the LCD and my application. The multiple voltages to support the LCD all worked but I must be changing the boot pins because I’m not getting any boot activity.

In going back to the drawing board and rechecking my design to the manual I had the idea of a ready-made HDMI LCD with touch. The LCD alone, the touch screen along with the support hardware for my cape was $60 not including assembly costs. I did find comparable HDMI LCDs but the resolution is 800 x 480. The BBB manual claims the only supported resolutions are:
1280 x 1024
1440 x 900
1024 x 768
1280 x 720

Does anyone know of compatible HDMI LCDs?


You can use a 800x480 resolution as well. Just create a customized frame buffer at boot time. Therefor edit your uEnv.txt file in the boot partition, so that it contains a line


(Note the M after 800x480!)
