    Yeah better than what I managed to get using a video card! Mine was constantly scrolling, just couldn't get the sync right.
    I used the following converter http://www.carconverters.com.au/prod...erter/236.html

    Pandaman, look up ArcadeVGA. You can use that in the BA on the ICC.

    Wardy, scrap the tissue box holder and make a new trim panel that goes in its place. For wiring, you have ACC and GND already behind the tissue box holder, aswell as the illumination wire on a light fitting thats normally used to illuminate a cigarette lighter if you have one.
    For constant power, run another wire from the battery side somewehre, just remember to fuse it.

    Will try that, but I'm a bid worried. The video card I have now was supposed to work just fine, but obviously doesn't.

    I'll let you know if I find one and how it goes.

    12mm mdf some rings bent up from fencing wire or the like screwed to the rear of the trim panel. That will let you use mounting holes.

    Just to add to my previous thinkings, from what i can tell the whole falcon uses a CAN bus, and up till now i didnt realise u could get USB->CAN interfaces which basically means it might be possible to implement software that controlls all the AC stuff with 1 little plug in USB interface. While this is just an idea, i might have to look into it. The can bus can controll the whole car including lock doors, change the channels on the FM tuner etc

    2 weeks till i get my BA!

    I finally got it working

    Had to change just about every setting on the damn video card, but I got the correct combination in the end (after many, MANY hours of trial and error).

    Here's the proof.



    Now that I have finally got that sorted, I can move on to the easy stuff - headrest mouted screens / roof mouted screen / OBDII / GPS / dual audio cards.
