    Questions on FM modulator, Aux In's

    Does anyone know if this exists: Something that goes on the wire from the FM antenna to the headunit, and puts a certain imput on a frequency then, instead of broadcasting it and letting the antenna pick it up thorugh the air, which introduces static and such. If this exists, Id love to buy one.

    Also, does anyone know if any head units under 200 bucks exist with Aux In's on the back? All I can find are ones with inputs on the front.

    Thanks for the help.

    You can find decks under $200 that will give you rear aux input with an adapter. For example, take a look at this this deck at Crutchfield for $170, and with this aux-in adapter for $13 you'd have a deck with rear aux-in for under $200.
    As for the FM modulator, I have one that hooks into the car's antenna (similar to this one , but honestly the quality is not very good. I found that the bass was competely lost, and I had to turn up the volume comming from the PC to the point of introducing distortion in order to get a strong enough signal to the radio. You are MUCH better off going with a deck that has aux-in. Even going with a really cheap deck with a front aux-in would yeild better results.
    There are tonnes of keypads with PS/2 interface on E-Bay, just do a search in the input peripherals section for 'keypad'.

    I don't know about the inline thing, but if you want a high quality FM transmitter, Click This Link and then click on All Portable Players on the upper left of the page. At the bottom you will see the Link-it FM Transmitter. It is only 25 bucks! plus 4.95 shipping. I am very impressed with mine
