  • Dual zones?

    How can i have multiple things play on seperate monitors.

    Say have navigation running up front but a DVD movie playing on a headrest monitor like many standalone DVD receivers do?

    Many bolt in receivers from jvc, sony, eclipse etc have dual zones...

    how can this be done with a carputer? Also i wanted all 3 monitors to show the frontend when i want so i can control the carputer from the rear seats on trips.

        One video card for each monitor. If you want 2 DVD playing at the same time, use 2 dvd players.

        In my setup (matrix), dual head video. VGA output for the front and S-video/Composite out is for the 2 rear headrest. Setup full screen video overlay (all nVidia card can do this), and you have full screen on the back monitors while control GPS up front.
        Or you can just move teh DVD windows to 2nd monitor (rear).

        If you ever setup dual monitor for desktop, this is exactly the same.

            If you want to put 2 screens in the back (3 total) you can use a video splitter so the pc outputs to one and it gets sent out to both. Depending on your budget you can get 2 dual head video cards for a total of 4 unique displays.
