Settings related to monitor personalization.


Your monitor has a default backdrop.  This is what will show when there is no signal on your monitor.

You can have this turned on or off (which will display NO SIGNAL over a black background) or you can load your own custom backdrop.

To load a custom file, select the custom checkbock and then custom file "..."  This will allow you to load a file form your SD card.

*We recommend making the custom file the same resolution as the panel for best results.


This section is for controlling user-definable power options.
