  • Project in 95 Tahoe

    I am pretty new to this whole car pc thing
    I have researched it for about a year so have some pretty good ideals on it
    Just never thought the hardware side would be this hard to figure out.

    Here is my setup

    I have a Valor indash DVD with 7" touchscreen.
    a Shark 7" touchscreen
    A Dell inspiron 1100 with the LCD removed Using VGA out to the Shark monitor.
    2.4 ghz
    1 gig of ram
    40 gig internal hard drive
    250 external portable hard drive
    Ipod Video cable going to switch
    So I can switch between all monitors running from the Carpc to the Ipod Touch
    2 7" monitors attached to the headrest for the backseat
    2 10" Rockfords with 1 farad cap and a alpine 400watt amp
    2 4x6 audio pipes

    windows xp pro
    running centrafuse --- Which I do actually hate the playlist feature on this program
    Internet from HTC Diamond turned into a wifi router --- Love this phone
    GPS receiver from HTC Diamond

    Only issue I have really had is the playlist feature in centrafuse stinks
    and the of course the power up and down is tricky

        ESPN Sportscenter in car befor work

        Ok here is what I did to get Live Cable TV in my Truck
        I installed a TV card into my home pc then hooked it to my cable.
        I then installed a program called Orb.

        Now from my CarPC all I do is goto the My Orb Cast website
        and launch live TV Works pretty good as long as you have a pretty good internet connection
        Which I mentioned earlier that I use a HTC Diamond as my wifi in my truck
        The wifi is strong enough that I can play Call of Duty modern Warfare 2 on xbox live with it.

        So here is the picture of SportsCenter
