    Thats why I do not use the onboard TV-out.
    When this board came out, I bought it for the reason that it had TV-out.

    But had no luck at all with it.So I had to use my old ATI card to be able to show my movies on the headrest monitors.

    Yesterday my new mainboard,Albatron KI57PV arrived.This on also has TV-out, but this time, Nvidia supplies the GPU chip.
    That means, DUAL view
    Gods right foot!!

    I wonder.. for more CarPC uses, a USB-VGA adapter may be sufficient as a secondary display, if there doesn't end up being a dual view option. My PCI slot is already tied up, so no real room for a 2nd vga. Definitely want to get some rear seat display going though. Even if I used the USB-VGA for my in-dash primary, and the on-board TV-out for the rears (allow for cheaper rear 'video only' monitors for the kiddies). I would think USB2 would still allow plenty of bandwidth for only 800x480 resolution...

    Explain S/PDIF header 5.1 sound

    How do i take advantage of that? i don't understand

    If it's 5.1 sound, how does that simple 3 pin header supply separate sound for all the channels? Is there a special cable?

    Did some searching but still confused. What do you connect to that header to get 5.1 sound and what is the cable or whatever connected to downstream??

    Your sound system needs to be capable of accepting COAX or Optical Digital 5.1 SPDIF as an input and decode that to your surround amps and speakers.

    its a single digital stream of data, containing all the 5.1 audio.

    and its only 2 pins required, the 3rd pin is +5v to power the optical adapter if there is one.

    as stated above DONT plug that into normal audio gear, it must have a SPDIF or Optical input

    now i got it guys, thanks. I will need some kind of 5.1 decoder downstream to separate the sound. The ones i've found so far (google) are quite expensive so the idea is out!

    Thanks again.

    Actually, use the audio configuration tool supplied by intel (on the CD) and the back 3 audio plugs get configured as 5.1 output or 4ch+mic in if you want.

    I need to know if this is the embedded system to use or pay more for the Zotac?

    I do have a few questions -

    1) Anybody using a IDE to Compact Flash Adapter?

    2) Is the SQ from the on-board audio considered good enough for good speakers and amps?

    3) Any gotchas I need to watch out for besided chipset fan failure?

    I suppose this thing will do OTA HD (up to 1080i) without sweating too badly, I would opt for the dual core just to make sure. I might wanna use a HDTV dongle.

    I'm trying to keep the total cost under $200 from MB to PSU

    Thanks...

    I had a D945GCLF2 and all was well, but swapped recently to the non '2' single core and now it wont stay off. I shutdown and the bugger powers on again 3 seconds later.

    I've discountred windows (tried ubuntu with same effect), disabled all wake on events I could see in the bios, updated the bios to the newest 171. But I'm still having this problem.

    Is it just me or is somebody else having this prob?

    I'd say get the Zotac, I am going to upgrade to one when they bring the ATX (ie non power supply version), it would seem to tick all your boxes, you say you want the mobo and psu for < $200 I think it's about $189 in the States isn't it, the only thing it doesn't do is the IDE, but I am sure there are SATA flash drives, I haven't tried flash drives I have a 10'000 rpm 2/1", drive but I think compact flash drives are the future, you can never tell how these things will go but I think it's a sure thing that they'll go down in prices and in 5 years time we won't even be using megnetic drives, they have the scope for being really cheap.
