                      Music and movies. Xbox scans mucis folder and plays random on startup. Approx. 40 seconds. Gets longer as I've added music. Using Clearity XBMC skin w/ changing backgrounds that I set and after 30 seconds of inactivity, the "Now Playing" info is displayed w/ random visualizations in background.

                        Xbox games (all of which I own) and tons of emulators (most of which I'm sure I owned at one time)

                        I didn't get any pictues of the Blaupunkt head unit, just mounted under the passenger seat. Also, the inverted, located under the hood (the fan was annoying) The switch in the dash is run to the inverter.

                        Also put some cupholders in today! The original ones sucked and aren't available anyway when the screen is out. I'm an outdoorsman too, so my GPS is a handheld Garmin Etrex Vista. I need to get a mount for the dash, right now I just use velcro and kinda wedge it against the glass, but it works fine. Also I'm thinking about putting in a wireless G bridge adaptor near the glovebox somewhere for access from the house.

                          Quick question for you, how do you set up the random play list in XBMC with the music in the library... also what program are you running? are you using a controller or the Touchscreen? How are you making the XBox recognize the thumb drive?


                          • #14
                            Do you mean what skin am I using? Search for Clearity. It's new and the best thing I've seen for smaller screens. I use a python script to search a directory for all music files and then play them random. This site should help you to get a USB thumbdrive that works. I use a mini wireless remote. I rarely need it due to the automatic music startup, mainly just to work on the xbox with.

                              mmm, fair enough, i'm using a wireless xbox controller and it doesn't exactly bother me, but most people don't know the controls so it's aggravating trying to explain, but then again... it's my car, not theirs

                              Oh, and i already checked clearity and everything, only problem is my xbmc version is older ;x i don't exactly even know how to check the version number through XBMC. Plus i have it as auto boot to XBMC so i can't even install the new one and re-name/make it the standard XBMC... bleh.
