Could I just use this to convert the M1-ATX plug to fit to the Xbox?

The main reason the guy wanted me to change his was because the inverter was putting lots of noise on the video signal. Using the DC-DC power supply stopped the interference.
Its more efficent and you dont need to get a shutdown controller for the inverter, coz the M1 handles all that!
Oh and the factory PSUs melt and burn your car down......... why else would microsoft be sending everyone a new power cable with a huge RCD in them!
someone want to build me a box that can do all of above? I like it!

Yeah, the trible mods thing is basically that circuit,
I built my own, coz I couldnt be bothered to wait for one to be shipped from USA!
So will the M1-ATX allow the xbox to automatically turn on and boot up as soon as I turn on the car without the need of hitting the Xbox power button?
Where is the best place to buy an M1-ATX for a US customer?
Also....did you install the M1-ATX inside the factory Xbox case or did you build the Xbox into a custom case?
Yeah the M1 fits into the xbox alright, heres a crappy photo i took with my webcam!
The little brown board is the circuit i made from the schematic above.
For the setup i used the xbox did not need to be switched on with the ignition but it would be easy to add, it would be a case of wiring the m1 to power switch of the xbox! Have a look in the forums and at the tutorials over at www.xbox-scene.com , look for one on adding an external power switch, but instead of having a switch just connect it to the m1 (the output that normally connects to the PC power switch).
I dont know where to get the M1 since im over in the UK, but a good place to get the parts for the schematic above is www.mouser.com
Thats awesome. Thank you so much Pilt. I'll be ordering an M1-ATX (probably from mp3car) Do you have an email that I can contact you at if I have any more questions that I need answered quickly?
Also, how do you suggest that my Xenarc LCD be wired to the M1?
