    did any of you guys get the Thinsoft Be-Twin working? I have tested it on in my little lab and it does work. I don't have a usb sound card yet to test playing a movie up front and mp3 in the back or movies on both.....
    I tested Centrafuse so I guess his app support multiple instances.
    did I read the site correctly in that is costs $99.00 per seat/user? I would like to put 2 head rest monitors in the back for each kid and the one up front for me, that make $300.00!!!! ouch!!!!! I wonder if Microsoft came down on them about seat licensing.

    For multi-zone audio output from one sound card, take a look at the kx project:

    http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/

    The driver allows one 6 channel card to be used as 3 stereo outputs.

    bugiman:

    It's just built in to the driver. It's the default behavior.

    The driver will present the system with four wave devices.. IE seperate sound cards.. Wave 0/1 is the "stereo mix" which is by default mapped to the front channel, but can be mapped to multiple channels. Wave 2/3 maps to front, Wave 4/5 maps to back wave and wave 6/7 maps to center/sub.

    I was thinking about going this route: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...RROR-N&cat=VCD It looks very promising and is an all in one solution as the sound, video, and extra usb ports are included. The box cold be mounted in the rear so you could plug in your headphones and game controllers.

    Hmmm… I find the MAGIC-MIRROR solution a little bit to clumsy and expensive. I like to control the audio and video for the backseats, from the front touch-screen. This way I only need two normal displays for the back, instead of to expensive touch-screens. I’m very interested in your approach gork, I might be interested in trying it out, is it something you have tested to work?

    As a warning...watching movies and the like takes quite a bit of computing power, so...there may be some issues as far as that goes...

    Wow, what a bunch of weird solutions Here is one more, the one I actually plan for my setup: get XCard and a couple of TV screens with a splitter. VGA output from video card is fed to touchscreen, audio output - to driver-side speakers or headset, video from XCard - to TV screens, audio from XCard - to headunit's aux in.

    Seams to me like your solution will show the same audio/video on all the screens in your vehicle lastberserker.

    what he said....
    I dont want to split the video. I want 3 completely independant and fully functioning "media centers".
    That way up front I can listen to sat radio and check out GPS. while in back each of my 2 kids can listen to what ever song they want or watch any movie they want. Of course the 2 rear screens audio would be connected to a wireless head set so i dont have to listen to Barney from the left and Yu-Gi-Oh on the right....
    and they don't have to listen to "Lamb Of God" Metal from me....
    this way would be cheaper than building 3 complete systems..
