    You stated that you have this adapter from partsexpress. I am looking at getting an adapter as well but is the computer text blurry like in the screenshot mentioned below? I also asked online with them and they stated that computer text or video might be blurry with this adapter.

    Thanks...

    Yes, there is "some" blurriness using the adapter on text. Moving video is fine. However, I suspect that will be the case with almost all composite video inputs. Composite video is interlaced and at that low resolutions some blurriness is almost a given.

    in response to the above: s-video to s-video gives a clear picture whereas an adapter from s-video to rca gives slight blurriness..

    hmmm... what to do?

    I have an odd issue with this. I have it set to go into hibernate after 1 hour of being in stand-by, but now it goes into standby and does hibernate like 15 minutes later. Any ideas why? The settings didn't change.

    are u using hybrid sleep? maybe your battery is running low before 60mins is up which cause ur psu to hard shutdown the system.

    Hope someone can help me with this next issue that I have since I use a extended Power button.

    SInce I have my CarPC, whenever I had any trouble with it (hanging of XP, or no responce after hiberrnation) I stopped the car ,open the trunk and disconnected the power.
    After I reconnected it, system started as usual without any problem.

    To make it my self much easier I took a 5 meter long cable,connected it to the J9 connector of the M2-ATX.Then run it all the way to the front where I use a normal power button.
    Here a sketch to see how I did this:



    Button:



    Since I use this button i have the next problem.

    Whenever I need to restart the system, I press the button and hold it for a couple of seconds to shut everything down
    After I let it go , and press the button, I can hear that system is restarting, but 9 of the 10 times system is not rebooting.

    Only after pressing the button different times ( sometimes after 10 times) system will reboot.

    After system is running , I ALWAYS need to change the time and date. This because time is alway set to 00h00, and date somewhere around 2002

    Yesterday I had the some problems and needed to do a reset, and again I had to press the button several times to make the system run again after shutting it down.
    As the system didn't want to start, I open the trunk and took a look at the system and could see that the case fan was turning around then stopped again to again start up and stop again.
    It looks like the system for some reason didnt get enought power to start again up.

    If I cut the power by unplugging it from the battery (I have made a connector between the battery and PC to make it easier to remove the system) and reconnected, system will start without any problem.

    Hope someone can help solve both problems:
    -why does system not restart after I press the button
    -why is system time and date reset when I finally get it back to live (by pressing the button a million times or by disconnecting power)
    Gods right foot!!

    I do not have an answer, but would say that normally a system would not freeze or hang.
    If it does, there is something wrong, and that needs to be fixed first of all.
    It's not healthy for the OS or the filesystem to be hard-shutdown.
    There is an edit you can do in regedit that tells XP to shutdown hanging programs no matter what, when XP is soft-shutdown.
    I've activated that and have to this day not had the need to hard-shutdown yet.

    Thinking of it, it might be that your botton-wire picks up some kind of noise on the way,
    and that messes with your motherboard.
    I had a wire the same way in my former car and didn't have any problems with it then,
    But that was with a VIA board...

    You may find the switch is not suitable.

    I had a not dissimilar issue on a motorised headlight mod, anyway..

    Suggest using an automotive relay close to the PSU switching the J9, triggered by the remote switch.

    Well, must say that 9 of the 10 times that I need to restart the system is because it does not wake up from hibernation..
    At that point OS is not working so I dont consider this a hard-shutdown.

    TZed9: what should be the point of having a relay between de triger and J9 connector?
    Is that due to the distance?

    Yes you may have loss of current due to the resistance of the length of cable coupled with the switch, or maybe the PSU just doesn't like the switch.

    Using relay close to the PSU should tackle either issue hopefully! No promises, what I'd be trying though.

    GL!
