    This is the S-video adapter I'm using. Dayton SVC2

    As far as wiring goes, here's how mine is setup (I have a lot of other equipment as well, so I needed the flexibility).

    - I have a distribution block set up that has 4 outputs. The whole block is fused at 80 Amps (other equipment connected to it as well).
    - The "direct" power connection to the M2-ATX is hooked into this block, with a 20A fuse on it.
    - I have a Blue Sea Systems fuse block that I set up to power various things. This block has 12 fused connections on it. This entire fuse block is activated by a relay, that is hooked into the car's ignition wire. If the car's ignition is on, the fuse block provides power, otherwise it shuts down (when ignition is off).
    - The "ignition" input to the M2-ATX is simply a connection from the fuse block, since all connections on the fuse block are ignition activated.

    Does that make sense? (I can try and find my Visio diagram if need be)

    oops, edit: Here's how the switch is wired:

    - I have a 3 wire harness going to the front of the car and connected to the switch. One +12v power cable in, one +12v Acc cable out (that carries power if the switch is on), and ground.
    - The +12v power cable is connected directly to the distribution block
    - The +12v Acc power from the switch is connected to the M2-ATX "direct" power.
    - Ground of course is ground everywhere

    it does thanks. I just wanted to make sure your 3 wires from your power supply are setup as mine, which is:

    Ground = grounded to chassis
    Red Constant = direct to battery (15a fuse at battery)
    White Switch = to fuse box 10a switch fuse - turns on with ignition.

    With this setup i can coordinate windows to sleep. is S3 available under XP or is this strictly under Win7?

    Yes, that wiring seems correct (although I'd NEVER connect anything directly to a car battery. With the way the alternator -> battery charge loop works, you could do some very bad things by interrupting that loop. Use a distribution block, and most cars have very obvious places near the battery (or trunk) where you can tap in safely. But hey, that's just me).

    Sleep is sleep. :-) All Windows knows is "sleep". It does not know anything about S3 or S1 or S4 sleep states. That's the hardware/BIOS side of things. So, to setup S3 correctly, you must set the S3 state in the BIOS first. In Windows you just tell it to sleep.

    S3 has nothing to do with XP or Vista or Win 7. It's a hardware thing. Either your motherboard has it or not. And this motherboard does.

    Here's how my equipment "looks" in the trunk. I'm still cleaning up some of the wiring and a couple of other audio related things that I need to finish.

Pick dual and click on the second monitor as being a television. The s-video plug must be plugged in during boot up or it wont be recognized. Also if you unplug it while the computer is running you cant plug it back in and work, you have to reboot. My biggest problem is the input doesnt hold my s-video adaptor tight and when I hit bumps it works itself out and I lose my dual 7" monitors in the rear.
    i found this

    @CabeSipes

    I'm assuming when you say you disable the onboard video in bios you are continuing to use the "on board" video - no? You are basically re-installing the drivers for the same video? I am somewhat confused? Or are you installing a video card?

    with that adapter you must use Force TV Detection. there is no way around it. its not a limitation of the motherboard, its a limitation of the RCA Composite specification. true Svid carries a feeback signal that RCA composite cannot do. this feedback is needed to tell the computer that there is a tv, and what resolution should be displayed.

    not being condescending (as i'm really frustrated):

    DO SHARE - HOW DO I FORCE TV DETECTION?

    sorry. can't for the life of me figure this out. i was playing around with regedit and gave up on that...

    huh?? I plugged the adapter in, plugged a standard RCA cable out to my monitor and I get video? Even the bios. Didn't have to configure a single thing other than bumping the resolution down to 640x480 from the default 800x600 (the BMW monitor is really low res) and that too is certainly optional.

    I repeat, I didn't configure a single damned thing. Plug and play. I am however using Windows 7 as I have said before and with the latest Intel drivers.

    Have you tried updating the BIOS to the latest version?
