    How make pc work with Car radio

    Ok I have a head unit that has aux but its been taken up by xm sat radio. Now my question is how do i get my pc to use my car audio so i can hear my music and so on? like how youl I set it up and blah blah. I know the easiest way is to get a 2 aux head unit right but is there another way? Thanks

    have your car pc control the xm radio and connect the pc to the aux input. no need for two inputs that way

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/the-faq-emporium/

    i wont expect another question from you for a couple days (you have lots of reading my friend) good luck and welcome to the forum...once you get your car pc up and running you won't ever go back to a regular head unit. unless you do..then i will be a liar.

    Just to give you another idea, I went the other way around. I have my radio go into the Line In on my carpc and then fed the carpc to the amps.
    Gen 1: Pentium 3 1GHz - ATX - 2005
    Gen 2: Pentium M 1.6GHz - ITX - 2006
    Gen 3: Pentium M 2.0GHz - 5.25" SBC - 2007
    Gen 4: (coming soon: Core2 Duo - 3.5" SBC - 2009)
    ...it never ends

    I was just about to post the FAQ link, but you beat me to it.

    Yay, I finally have a friend.
