    Rear Monitors - Ideas?

    I want to install 2 additional monitors in the head rests of my tahoe. I have searched all over and haven't found a good solid answer. can I use the S-Video out on my M10000 to send the video signal to the 2 other monitors? Will the quality be good enough? The sound is piped through my stereo - I have a lilliput up front with the VGA / USB... So I need a rear monitor video signal solution... What is the best? I don't think I am going to be able to do 2 VGA monitors and use a splitter - is S-Video good ? - Thanks.

    ya, just get a couple cheapo composite screens and put 'em in the headrests. They'll be good enough quality to watch movies etc, but you might not be able to see small text (ie. the windows clock etc) as long as you don't use one as your main screen, you gotta use a vga screen for that. The thing I'm not sure about is if the Epia will put out signal to VGA and S-Video at the same time (I don't have one)... if it doesn't, you will have to buy a vga to composite converter and a vga splitter.

    You can buy them with s-vid.Ive seen then for $50 on ebay for a 8''.so just look for the specs. or I just might be able to get you some raw 5'' vga screens but it will take some time cause I cant talk to my contact as much as I would like.
