    How goes it Joe? I know, it's been a long time since I've showed my face. It's been a pretty busy few months! I see your project is coming along nicely. Have you decided if you're going to replace the OEM radio or add to it?

    I'm looking to get around $225 each...I have 2 of them. That includes the 1Gb of RAM and shipping. I thought I had a problem with the board so I ordered another one. Turns out I had a problem with my USB hub. I fixed it before my board came in and I got too lazy to return it.

    No, my amp grounds are closer to the amps in the back where as the pc ground is up near the pc

    I was using a silabs unit and was having a horrid time with that. At least this Visteon unit gives me something I can listen to.

    I have a question and statement.

    First off, what is the website for Lilliput directly? I see way to many sites claiming to be Lilliput. I currently order mine through Ebay, but I would think it would be cheaper direct.

    Also I would not consider the HDTV tuner thing very reliable. I'm in Miami and they have the ATSC HDTV network in place now, but the quality is so bad with mobile applications. You need a powered antenna to get a good signal. I tried the HDTV thing with no success, so I went back to Sling Box and bought a new air card that works abit better. Now I watch my Sat TV with periodical buffering.

    I order mine through ebay too. I knew it was manufacturer direct when the UPS tracking # got emailed to me.

    As far as the HDTV goes I build my own antennas Mobile is still in the works but I can tune an HD signal in a second when I am stopped. It's not going to be useful on a trip up north or something, but for waiting in line at the bank or something, perfecto.

    @blbrchnk

    Try grounding your amps and PC to the same ohm level. (run a ground wire to connect them) It may help out with some noise in your sys.

    Hey blk,

    Starting a new project and you seem to be that guy who knows everything around here.

    05 Mustang, stock headunit right now..

    I ordered the Xenarc 706tsa which should be in tomorrow or so... http://xenarc.com/product/706tsa.html

    Also just ordered the Metra 95-5812 Double din kit...http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...a+95-5812.html

    Looking for your experience to what i should in terms of where to put the computer...

    Have not ordered any parts yet other than the screen and the mount... Debating if i should build it behind the screen, under the seat or in the trunk..

    Any help is appreciated!

    There is plenty of room behind the screen. I don't know if blk is still producing the chassis or not, but I will vouch for them if he is. They are pretty sweet and fit great.

    Well I would put it behind the screen also, it worked good for me during the 3 years I had my mustang, so I will recommend it.

    I worked on a 2009 mustang yesterday, made me miss mine

    For the recored I am still manufacturing chassis, and hope to release a complete bolt in system for 2010, assembled, tested and ready for install. Codename VPC-1 at the moment..

    i thought it might get tricky for behind the screen because the 706tsa has an external box in which the video cables go...

    Nonetheless.. behind the screen it is. How much is it for the chassis and how soon can you ship it out?

    Again, i have only ordered the screen and the double dinn kitt. I will purchase the motherboard etc once i get the chassis. Id like the harddrive mount on top as well.

    Thanks,
    2005 Mustang.

    Hey Blk,

    I haven't read all of this thread, but have you ever considered popping an optical drive in your system?

    Seems like it would be really cool, with like a sliding screen or something for access...
