          Freeman, pics are working fine from what I can see.

          ADSL line may have been down.

            Looks like pictures are hosted on a server on port 8080. Chances are if you're behind a firewall (eg at work) you won't be able to see them. I can't from work either...

                    Hi Spectrrrrrrr, yes the HU is a little obscured by the screen, but as I don't need to touch it at all when using the screen, it's not an issue.

                    I use the volume controls of Mediacar for overall level and muting is done by my hands free kit when taking phone calls.

                    I can still get at the mute/vol touch panel of the HU and I know where they are when driving so coontrol aint too bad.

                      Nice Craig,

                      The battery in the boot is that an extra one, or do Merc put it there instead? is it being charged by the alternator?

                      Cheers

                        That's the standard battery in the boot, makes the installation a little easier.

                          You bugger's, not fair

                          To be honest it makes some sense, I was thinking of having a seperate battery in the boot, and find some charging device,

                          Be carefull Craig running that invertor, I have shagged 2 x 100amp batterys already in my Audi, they dont like invertors normal batterys.

                          I got a 3 yr warranty on my last one, and get a new one every year

                          Looks nice the install of yours

                            Ron, I've got an OPUS, but it wont fire my system :-(

                            So I'm basically stuck with the inverter until I can find a solution.

                            I'm smoothing the power through a 20A filter between the inverter and battery, hopefully this will isolate the battery from the inverter a bit, plus smooth the volts going into the inverter.

                            I've got an old style shutdown controller and I'm gonna fit that this weekend weather permitting.

                              Yeah the opus doesnt provide the watts needed untill they make a DC DC 350watt PSU were stuck with inverters, at the moment im shutting mine down by hand, which sucks, but when I wire the invertor to the AMP which is controlled via the remote wire there isnt enough power to crank the car without losing power to the PC.

                              I also tried wiring in a switch, but the thickness of cable needed to run was not practicle

                              Good luck
