    Hacking stereo input

    All i've got in my Hyundai is a stock head unit. I was wondering if I could hack the audio lines going to the speakers so that I could place a switch to select between the head signal, and my mp3 player signal. I don't think the computer will put out a good enough level so I'm going to build a buffer/amplifier to give it some more gain. Would this be more trouble than it's worth? Should I just get a tape adaptor? Anyone done this before? pics?

    Thanks

    Michael

    ... thought I'd let you know (you must be using css) that on your website your pictures are covering up a lot of your text.

    Thanks for letting me know. I'm using hand written html ("Site created with Notepad...!"). I don't see any problems on my machine. What browser are you using?

    What browser are you using? I'm using IE 5.5 and it looks fine.

    I've shrunk the thumbnails anyway, hopefully that'll help a bit, whatever the problem is.

    by the way... it's the hardware page I'm refering to.

    For example on the hardware page see the heading "The Control Unit (Mk 1)?" Look at the two pictures side by side below it. Don't you see the text under them?

    Cool. I'm guessing you are running at some insanely low resolution.

    If you take the current page and squash the window a lot horizontally, you can get the pictures on top of the text, but you have to go very low res to make it happen.

    Yeah, I also had that problem, IE6 1024x768. Seems to be fixed now, though.
