  • Setting up Xenarc with other non-Xenarc monitors?

    I'd like to setup a Xenarc in the front obviously at the dash, but I'd like to install two regular 7" monitors for the headrests.

    Does the Xenarc have regular video out? Or would I need to do this at the PC?

    Apologies in advance if this has been asked - but Xenarc just pulls up too many search results..I've been reading for quite a while with no answer to the question.

    Thanks!

    The xenarc does not have any video output, you will need a splitter or a video card with dual outputs.

      Is splitting the signal over rca cable going to work OK?

        I'm considering the same type of setup. Yea, I think we'd need a video card with RCA out, or in most of today's cards; S-Video Out w/RCA converter dongle, then attach that to an RCA splitter to the two headrest monitors. Unless they are s-video inputs on those 2 headrest monitors, I guess there are s-video splitters, havn't looked into this, as I will just go the cheap way for the rear people lol.

          I've been running a Xenarc (touchscreen front) and Lilli (touchscreen rear) using a simple vga splitter with no apparent loss of quality.

            Now what if I don't have a video source that has RCA/S-V out? I wasn't planning on getting a video card seperate of the on-board video, and on-board doesn't have RCA video out... and I'm planning on using two non-VGA monitors for the back..

            Is my only solution to add a different video card?
