    yeah, i wanted it to look stock as possible, so i didnt like ppl looking in my window to see the screen while no one was in vehicle

    i dont remember what i did. i think i used the 12v rail off molex to the lcd. for usb yeah u would use 5v rail...iirc its red.

    Yup, its red. So do most people chop off the hd connector and just run stuff to the wires? I've never had to do this before lol.

    Re: Carputer 101

    Howdy, not to thread jack. Just a newbie to the forums here, into carputers.
    Well, I actually sell them (can't say where) but I'm looking at carputer discussions, looking for ideas, suggestions, etc.
    Please welcome me

    EDIT/ADD: I use my cars' 12V for my monitor, straight from the batt. I prefer not to use anything off the PC PSU that I didn't have to.
    Most monitors allow 12-18 Volts, but be careful, make sure that it does allow that.
    I've got a Xenarc, it also has "auto on", the monitor won't come on unless the PC is on.

    Here's some of the front, don't have pics of the PC. It's in a stainless steel case, in the trunk.
    I used the in-dash unit first, then decided to do a molded install.

    Xenarc 700 TSV
    LinkSys WiFi card
    OBDII
    iGuidance Nav w/ USG-BR355 Ant
    using RR w DFX skin

    Do you have a hub powered off your psu? I'm thinking about using the 5v from the psu to power one.

    Re: Carputer 101

    im sure this has been answered already but, i dont know if i can search through 48 pages of posts, lol



    im planning on installing that liliput in-dash carputer but im not sure how to install it and was just wondering what i would need to hook it up, and how i would get audio out of it. would i just use a regular rca output? or is it a little bit more difficult because its a computer?

    im basically just using this so i can install i-tunes onto it and have my big database of songs on it.

    thanks
    -Jeff

    what would you need the rom for? idea is to play everythign off the hard drive. if you still need a drive you can either have it in the trunk or mount an external somewhere
