    carputer to control other lcd screens

    Hey everyone.....I'm new to this site and am going to be installing a carputer in my 2003 yukon. I was thinking about flush installing a 10.4" datalux touch screen vga monitor in the dash (by the way....is that screen any good...i haven't heard anyone refer to it). I already have (6) lcd screens in my truck hooked up to my ps2 and camera. I would like to have my carputer control MP3, dvd, camera, navigation, and wireless remote & keyboard. I am open to any suggestions on whether or not to buy a carputer, or put one together (if so, what would be the best to support what I want), but most importantly would like my touchscreen to turn all of my monitors, and ps2 off & on. Like the 'Smart home technology'. I can not find any info on doing this with a carputer, and any advise would be greatly appreciated!!!! Sorry to take up your time..I still have a lot to learn, but the site has been great so far!!!

    You need a relay controller.
