    ok, according to the Pioneer Website, there is no AVX-P7000, unless you mean the 7000 or the P7000CD (or it could be older, or you could be in an other-than-US market).

    Those units are priced well above the $1000 mark ($1100 & $1300 US), and both include tuners.

    Okay, here's the part where I take back some of the stuff I said about www.carlcds.com . You can buy an in-dash, motorized 6.4" LCD w/remote for (sigh) $640 US.

    You might want to seriously consider this option, it being $500 cheaper and all.....

    yeah I'm using one.

    However I haven't installed/purchased it yet. But I am testing it with a PC next weekend, so I'll see how it performs. It doesn't have a tuner in it, (AVX-7000) it's an optional extra. On it's own it is just a monitor/cd changer controller. It excepts RBG (sync on green) inputs which can be taken from any video card. All you do is combine the v sync and h sync signals together and add them to the green channel. This is done with three main components (transistor, cap and resistor). It is supposed to do 800*600 but we'll see about that.

    BJ: Where can I find info on how to convert the VGA output to RGB. My new Big Screen has an aux RGB input...It would be great to hook the computer up to that and play Quake!

    So with this unit I can get good resolution needed for computing, and still be able to connect my dreamcast via rca's!!! Awsome, I have been debating between resolution and rca inputs for the longest time. This is excellent! Let me know how it turns out.

    Cool, I think I get that diagram. However, it looks like this pioneer is 16:9. Does anyone know what a computer or dreamcast would look like?

    I've been thinking about using the 7000CD, but I too have been worried about the quality of the PC video. I was thinking about using composite, but RGB is probably a better idea I saw the 7000CD at a dealer playing a DVD, and it looked pretty good, it had some lines when the car's engine was idling though (probably low voltage).
